Want to get to know Niagara Falls? This is the tour with the most iconic, must-do experiences. Let’s get started.

After a hotel pickup from the New York or Ontario side, start with an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of the majestic Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls—the American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls from 520 feet (158 m) in the air.

Next, cross to the US side and get ready for the experience of a lifetime on the Maid of the Mist cruise. This is as good as it gets, the best way to experience one of the world’s most amazing natural wonders. The cruise runs from early May to late October.

During the rest of the year, experience the Journey Behind the Falls excursion, where the sound of the falls is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand in the mist and feel the rush where the Horseshoe Falls rumble from 13 stories above—dropping over 700,000 gallons of water every second at 40 miles per hour. Now that’s powerful.

Other highlights include Table Rock Centre, a retail and observation complex located at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls; Queen Victoria Park, the main parkland in Niagara Falls, opposite the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls (with Sir Harry Oakes Gardens); the Upper Canadian Rapids from Three Sisters Island, the Lower Niagara River and Gorge, and Whirlpool State Park, overlooking the Niagara Whirlpool with spectacular views of the rapids, the whirlpool itself and the Niagara River.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist portion of this tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

The entire trip was memorable. The tour was running late due to mechanical issues. We started with the tour of goat island and I thought it was a great way to start. Disliked crossing the border twice but that’s what u have to do!

Loved the close up experience to the falls. Getting wet in the mist on the boat was the most memorable part of my Niagra Falls experience. Everyone needs to experience getting soaked in the mist.

Really great trip and well worth the money. Trip included Maid of the Mist boat trip to the Falls which are spectacular. We were taken to many advantage points along the way and concluded the trip at the Skylon Tower to get an amazing view of the Falls. Roland our tour guide was very knowledgable.

Great way to see Niagara Falss

The trip highlights for the family were of course the boat ride to the falls base, no better way to truly appreciate how impressive they really are. We also enjoyed our driver Dakota’s stories, the scenic stops above and below the falls. One tip for others is to bring water and a snack as there are not many opportunities from 8-12 until lunch. We would have been happy to buy water on the bus but this was not an option, hint:)

Not worth the money.

This tour was supposed to be Canadian side only. The driver was unaware that our tour was supposed to remain on the Canadian side and was unprepared to take us through that experience (I do not think this was her fault; whoever scheduled her did not let her know.) After picking everyone up and all of us telling her that we did not sign up for the US side of the tour, she contacted dispatch and drove us up and down Niagara Parkway because the "First Stop" on the tour was not open for parking/drop off. Essentially, we spent the majority of the time on the bus, having her repeat about an hours worth of information over and over. The boat ride and the Skylon tower were great but we could walked up to get those tickets for about $60 each instead of $150 each. The Canadian Side only tour is not worth your money or your time.
