Straddling the border between Canada and the US, Niagara Falls is a thundering testament to nature’s power, with drops up to 167 (51 meters) high. While it can take seven hours to travel by road to the falls from New York City, this tour reduces travel time with round-trip airfare and a local transfer from your Manhattan hotel, allowing you to easily see multiple Niagara highlights in a single day.

After being collected from your Midtown Manhattan hotel, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Upstate New York (approximately one hour). On arrival, you will be met by your guide for the day to board the bus to Niagara Falls.
After lunch, it’s time to board the famous “Maid of the Mist” boat for an up-close Niagara Falls experience. The 30-minute cruise takes you through the foaming waters to the base of the American Falls and the basin of Horseshoe Falls. You will get close enough to the falls to feel their cool mist on your skin.
The “Maid of the Mist” operates only in the warmer months, from May to October, so if you are traveling from November to April you will visit the Journey Behind the Falls instead. An elevator takes you behind the great sheet of Niagara Falls for a thunderous up-close view of Niagara Falls.
