This is as close as anyone can get to Niagara Falls—without riding over them in a barrel, of course. This seasonal (May-October) tour travels to the edge of the falls, and safely back.

The journey begins at Niagara Falls State Park, the oldest state park in the United States, and all the key viewing areas of the Niagara region—from the relatively unknown to some of the most famous tourist spots in the world.

Take an elevator ride down into the Niagara Gorge, where wooden walkways along the Niagara River lead to the observation deck of the Cave of the Winds, just a few feet from the powerful rush of the falls. It’s like being caught in a tropical storm here. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Take another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls—the American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls—from the Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view as the waters rage below.

Visit Goat Island, that small island in the Niagara River separating the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls.

Hop on board the popular Maid of the Mist for a boat ride to the very edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America.

Get to know Niagara Falls—from state parks to islands; from power plants to the iconic falls themselves, this tour of Niagara Falls, USA, covers it all.

Our tour guide, Shelly, was wonderful. She explained everything very well and obviously knows the area very well, too. She took us to all the best spots to see the falls up close (closer than you get on the Canadian side!) Late September was the perfect time to go! Crowds were low so lines were minimal.

Maid of the Mist was an amazing experience with being able to get that close to the falls. At Cave of the Winds, you are able to get soaked from right under the falls, an experience of a lifetime. Capt Ron provided a lot of insight and even gave a great recommendation for dinner which we all loved. Would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Niagara.

Dan’s grizzly Our tour guide was great. Avoided long lines, parking, entertained and stopped for Restrauant for lunch, and ice cream plus free water. What’s up with some of our Asian tourist, who apparently have a disregard for departure times, controlling the kids and unaware of the inconvenience to their fellow tourist? No apologies or explanation where offered. Guide is not prone to push back for impacting his gratitudes. We where first to load and last to unload at 6pm with back seats trashed even though trash bag was provide. The guide must clean the coach prior to returning. I’m very annoyed when people show disrespect to others and property. As a youth golf coach we teach: Rule 1 is RESPECT. Respect during life and golf. RESPECT for yourself for others and for property.
