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

I would definitely recommend this trip:) it was definitely the best decision I could ever made ☺️. The Niagara falls are an incredible experience which I would definitely book a second time ☺️. If you don’t have much time but you really wanna see the Niagara Falls than this trip is the best alternative solution:) The guides are also very friendly and ambitious:) it was never boring there.

Great experience and great day! The journey is not heavy because it is broken up by various breaks to eat or use the services. Guided and detailed tour. Breathtaking landscapes.

Jessica was an amazing tour guide! Had an amazing day. Would recommend 100%
