The Basics

The best way to experience Niagara Falls is on a boat ride. From the New York side, Maid of the Mist boat tours run day and night, when you can see the falls illuminated.

You can also experience the falls from the vantage points at Niagara Falls State Park, Goat Island, and the Hurricane Deck at Cave of the Winds. For a bird’s-eye perspective, venture to the observation deck of the Niagara Falls Observation Tower, or go even higher during a plane or helicopter flight tour over the falls.

Great tour of Niagara Falls with the best Tour Guide

Niagara Falls American-Side Tour with Maid of the Mist Boat Ride
We really enjoyed our tour of Niagara Falls. Our tour guide Dayna was the best ever. She was knowledgeable, funny and helpful. The tour covered everything we wanted to see while in Niagara Falls. Over the Falls tour company did a great job. She arrived before our scheduled pick up time so there was no waiting around. The bus was clean and I was happy because masks were required and hand sanitizer was given out every time we entered the bus. It was a fun day.

Niagara Falls American-Side Tour with Maid of the Mist Boat Ride
Very full tour with a clean, knowledgeable, professional company! The Maid of the Mist was amazing and you get really close to the Falls! But my favorite was the Cave of the Winds experience where you can literally touch the Falls!! Would 💯 recommend!

Great variety of activities. Our driver, Prady, was very personable and knowledgeable. The Cave of the Winds and Maid of the Mist are exciting, and you will get wet, so be prepared. Altogether a very pleasant day, with genial bus mates and convenient pick up from your hotel.

Niagara Falls American Side Highlights Tour
Had a fantastic time and a great guide. Shelly picked us up from hotel and packed our day with awesome views, knowledge and experiences. We revisited some areas next day so we could spend more time. Our friends were blown away, as their 1st visit. Even though we have been here many times and we learned and experienced more with Shelly's tour expertise.

Private Departure Transfer: Niagara Falls, New York to Buffalo Niagara International Airport
It was a good experience and I will definitely give them a call again. Both to & from the airport and the hotel was exactly what we expected plus some. The drivers were both really good!
