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

The journey begins with 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. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Then it’s another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls—the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls—from the observation tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view of all three as the waters rage below.

Finally, 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.

Notice: The Maid of the Mist departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers must have proper credentials to enter the United States.

Operating dates of the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are approximate and depend on weather conditions.

Too Rushed

While it was nice to hit all the highlights at Niagara Falls and we loved the Cave of the Winds part, and not having to buy tickets at each stop, the tour itself was not great. We could not understand our tour guide, who didn’t come with us at any of the attractions. He was more of a bus driver. The AC unit in the bus was so loud it was impossible to hear him even if we could have understood his accent. We felt rushed at each stop - needing to be back at the bus at a certain time at each stop and almost running at a few. If we return I would take two days to do what we did in 4 hours.

From the bus pickup right at our hotel and right on time, to all of the portions of the tours, to the bus driver's historical narrations, and finally to the dropoff at our hotel. Wonderful experience.

Our tour guide Dan could not have been more helpful or informative, as we moved from Maid of the Mist to Cave of the Winds. Loved his story telling! Plenty of time for seeing the grounds, a food stop and the gift shop. We highly recommend the half day trip - hassle free fun with pick- up at the hotel. What a great way to experience Niagara Falls! Thank you!
