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.

Lots of memories made on this tour, but the highlight was standing under the pounding water at the Cave of the Winds attraction. Our guide, Debbie, was helpful, knowledgeable, fun, and her guidance was key in having an enjoyable day. Thank you!

We enjoyed our tour & history lesson with our wonderful trip leader “Daredevil Dan” He was extremely helpful to get us to several destinations promptly and let us explore the areas while he waited in line for our tickets. I can not imagine seeing all the sights we did on our own. Dan was truly a very prepared, knowledgeable & friendly leader who gave us extra information & history at every stop we made. Highly recommend this tour!!! We give it lots of stars & thumbs up!!

Our first trip to Niagara Falls on a beautiful autumn day. The visual spectacle can’t be any better. The power of the falls must be experienced. The history of the Falls was skillfully and accurately explained to us by Prady who was exceptional as both our driver and guide.

Shelly was awesome and made the trip in my opinion. She was knowledgeable and great to interact with no over the top like I heard from a few other operators at different places we stopped. She even brought us down to Lewiston quick which was great because that's where we Decided to go back to dinner was her recommendation. The tour itself was fun and exciting and really made it easy to see mostly everything in one shot.

Actual tour was great but...
Marilyn_G
, Oct 2021
Actual tour was great but booking it was not. I first booked through another online company. Got to Buffalo and discovered they had lied about the driver picking us up at our hotel. I made a point of confirming this before leaving home. Had to cancel and rebook with another company that also promised to pick us up at our hotel in buffalo. Again learned that this was untrue and had to cancel and start over. Almost gave up but niagara falls was our only reason for coming to bufallo. Ended up getting transportation to and from Niagara Falls before connecting with tour bus. Would not have gotten hotel in buffalo if we'd known. Glad it finally worked out. Tour was great and driver/guide was knowledgeable however his dislike and discomfort with people from other countries was annoying. Constant praise of us for looking and acting like him wasn't cool. I finally told him we were history buffs and would like to hear more about the history if what we were seeing. Seemed to get the hint. Otherwise, great tour.
