Why take this tour?

Your tour of Niagara Falls, USA begins with pick up directly from your downtown hotel. 

Your guide will then bring you to your first attraction, Cave of the Winds. Here you will learn about the role Niagara Falls plays in generating electricity before embarking on a series of walkways which lead to the “hurricane deck”. Here, you will get so close to the Bridal Veil Falls that it will feel like you’re surrounded by tropical storm-like conditions, even when it’s calm out. 

After your visit to Cave of the Winds, your guide will bring you to Goat Island which connects to Terrapin Point and Luna Island. While here you’ll learn about the history of the Falls, see the Nikola Tesla monument overlooking the Falls and have an amazing view of Bridal Veil Falls which are situated between Goat Island and Luna Island. 

The next stop on your tour is a visit to Whirlpool State Park. While you’re here you’ll have the opportunity to snap some impressive photos of Niagara’s Whirlpool Rapids. 

Next, your guide will bring you to the famous Maid of the Mist boat ride. Before you board, you’ll have a chance to check out the view from the Prospect Point Observation Tower, located directly above the boarding site. While you’re on the Maid of the Mist boat tour, you’ll take in incredible views, hear the thunderous roars of the rushing waterfalls and you may get a bit wet, depending on where you stand - but don’t worry, you will be provided with a rain poncho for this boat ride.

Following your ride on the Maid of the Mist, your guide will take you for dinner at Steak Stone & Sushi restaurant.

After dinner, your guide will bring you back to Goat Island for the best view of the illuminated waterfalls before heading to Luna Island.

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