Upon arrival at your destination, you begin experiencing the adventure, beauty, and natural wonder of Niagara Falls on board the historic Maid of the Mist boat cruise or, when the Maid of the Mist is not running, from other observation points such as Gorge Walk or others available based on the weather conditions.

Enjoy spectacular views of the Niagaras falls from New York

During your visit, you learn about the interesting history of these mighty waters and enjoy spectacular views of the falls from different vantage points. You have the opportunity for lunch on your own, souvenir shopping, and explore the beautiful Niagara Falls State Park. After an unforgettable experience and wonderful memories, you will be back at Times Square in Manhattan.

We personally recommend wearing comfortable clothing and walking shoes while on tour.

Niagara Falls Tour Itinerary from New York

To make the most of the day, we will depart at 4:00 am from the bustling Times Square in New York City towards the border between the United States and Canada.

The travel time until we reach Niagara Falls is approximately 7 to 8 hours, with a stop for rest. During the journey aboard a comfortable bus, we will enjoy the beautiful landscapes of northern North America.

Upon arriving at our destination around 11:00 am, we will be amazed by the sight of Niagara Falls. From various viewpoints, we will contemplate the impressive waterfalls while a guide in Spanish and English shares interesting facts about the world’s most famous waterfalls.

To have an unparalleled perspective of the falls, we will approach one of the selected observation points based on current weather conditions. We might visit the Terrapin Point lookout on Goat Island, which offers a unique view of the Horseshoe Falls, the most breathtaking of the three waterfalls.

If you have chosen the option that includes Maid of the Mist, available only from May to October, you will enjoy a boat ride to the falls. The journey will take place aboard the renowned Maid of the Mist boat. You may get a little wet, but we will provide ponchos so you can fully enjoy the experience.

After admiring the impressive Niagara Falls up close, we will give you free time to have lunch on your own. Once you are recharged, we will finally begin our journey back to New York, where, after 7 to 8 hours of travel, we will arrive between 11:00 pm and midnight.
