Pour un séjour à New York, c'est une formule parfaite. Nous sommes partis de Time Square à 7h du matin, revenus à 6h le lendemain. Avec les différentes pauses, nous sommes arrivés aux chutes vers 16h et repartis vers 22h20, juste après la fin du feu d'artifice. Faire cette activité en fin de journée est royal. De superbes lumières de coucher de soleil, puis la mise en lumière des chutes étaient magnifiques. Quitte à faire le déplacement, je conseille de prendre l'option "Maid of the Mist" Attention toutefois pour les francophones, nous n'avons pas eu de traduction des guides (anglais et espagnol seulement). Mais je conseille fortement cette activité

Very well organised trip. Was apprehensive about 7 hours on coach each way but regular stops made it more bearable. Coach did have reclining seats but not a lot of room. Despite this once you get to the falls it is amazing unfortunately it rained all the time we were there. We were very wet especially after maid of the mist - it's am unforgettable experience going so close to the falls. I would recommend taking dry clothes and shoes. Drivers and Richard who did the walking tour were very good. Dont let the journey put you off - excellent trip. E

It was a holiday weekend so we rushed to get in early. our guide got us everyplace we needed to be on time. It was really nice not standing in line! What a joy the day was for my husband and I. This was a first class activity.

Tour guides were great! Wouldn’t advise doing both tours back to back. Make sure you have plenty of time between.

We thought that it was very organized and we enjoyed our tour guide Nick,
