Description
Your cross-border Niagara Falls tour begins with pick up directly from your hotel in either Niagara Falls, Canada or Niagara Falls, USA. 

The first half of your tour will take place in the USA. We’ll start the day with a visit to one of the most iconic attractions in Niagara Falls - a boat ride on the Maid of the Mist. While on board, you’ll be treated to an amazing view, hear the thunderous roars of the rushing waterfalls and feel the mist on your skin - but don’t worry, you will be provided with a rain poncho for this boat ride. While visiting Maid of the Mist, you’ll also have an opportunity to check out the view from the Prospect Point Observation Tower which extends out past the gorge and has an amazing panoramic viewpoint for all three Niagara Falls. 

After the boat ride, you’ll head over to Cave of the Winds where you will descend 175 ft. into the Niagara Gorge before heading out onto a series of walkways leading to the “hurricane deck”. If you venture all the way to the hurricane deck, you can expect to get wet and really feel the wind coming off the Bridal Veil Falls - since you’ll be only a few feet away! 

Next, your guide will take you to Goat Island and Luna Island for some amazing views of the Falls and some fun facts about the area before heading to Canada for the second-half of your tour.

Your first stop on the Canadian side of the Falls will be a break for lunch at Skylon Tower where you will head up a glass elevator to the restaurant which provides an incredible birds-eye view of the Falls to gaze upon while you eat. After lunch, you can take the elevator up to the observation deck area to get a 360-degree view of Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. 

Once you get back on the ground, your guide will take you on a narrated driving tour of the area passing multiple points of interest including: Dufferin Islands, the International Control Dam and Old Scow before heading to your next stop at Journey Behind the Falls. 

At Journey Behind the Falls you will descend 125 ft (approx. 40m) to explore cave-like tunnels. This experience is a treat for the senses as you’ll be able to not only hear the falls, but feel them as well. The tunnels lead to two observation decks, giving you the perfect photo opportunity.

For  the final portion of your tour, your guide will take you to view the Niagara Whirlpool for another incredible photo opportunity.  

At the end of your Niagara Falls tour, your guide will drop you off back at your hotel.

FAQ Will I require a visa for this tour?

Depending on your citizenship, you may require a Visa or ESTA to enter the US for this tour.

For travelers from the UK, Australia, New Zealand and most EU countries, we recommend you apply for the ESTA at least 72 hours before crossing the border as it simplifies the process and only takes a few minutes to do online.

How wet do we get on the Maid of the Mist boat?

This generally depends on where you stand on the boat while you get close to the waterfalls. If you stand near the back of the boat, you won’t get very wet. If you stand near the front of the boat, you can expect to get fairly wet. You will be provided with a poncho while on board. Most travelers will still take their phones and cameras on board. Some travelers will choose to bring a change of shoes.
