9. Niagara, USA: Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds Tour
Explore Niagara Falls State Park on this guided walking tour. Make the most of your time by starting with the Maid of the Mist boat ride with your guide and then reserve your time slot at Cave of the Winds so you can skip the ticket line.
This tour also provides a pass for the hop-on hop-off Niagara Scenic Trolley so you can also visit the Horseshoe Falls, Luna Island, and Three Sisters Island.
Meet your guide and begin your tour by hearing stories about the history of the State Park, heroic rescues, and daredevil stunt attempts on your way to the Maid Of The Mist boat ride.
Your guide will make sure you receive your poncho while making your way onto the boat and share the best spots for viewing to give you the best experience possible.
Cruise along and listen to stories about the Maid of the Mist boat. The boat tour will cross in front of the American and Bridal Veil Falls on your way to and from Horseshoe Falls, the largest of the three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls. Get up close for a breathtaking experience.
Once the cruise is completed, head back up to the Niagara Falls Observation Tower where your guide will share more stories and can help with snapping photos of you with the amazing views of Niagara Falls behind you.
At the conclusion of your guided portion, you'll receive passes for both the hop-on, hop-off Niagara Scenic Trolley service and a timed reservation for the Cave of the Winds. The very next stop after boarding the Niagara Scenic Trolley will be the Cave of the Winds.
Once the Trolley brings you on the short journey over to the Cave of the Winds, you'll have your timed reservation so you can skip the ticket line. Explore this breathtaking attraction by taking an elevator ride down 150 feet into the Niagara Gorge.
After collecting your waterproof poncho, experience Niagara Falls up close and personal. Take part in an exhilarating ascension up to the Hurricane Deck positioned at the base of Bridal Veil Falls where you will get absolutely soaked.
Your Trolley pass is good all day long, so the Niagara Scenic Trolley will aid you as you chart your own course without a guide throughout Goat Island. Witness stunning views from both Terrapin Point and Luna Island and see the rapids up close at Three Sisters Island.
