Full description

Experience Niagara Falls from the US side with the help of a tour guide and a day pass for the park’s trolley. Ride the Maid of the Mist for a better look at the islands, enter the Cave of the Winds to hear the thunderous waterfalls, and board the trolley freely to see the whole park in a day.

Start your tour with the Maid of the Mist boat ride. Your guide will bring you to the boat, answer all your questions, and give you tips on how to make the most of your boat trip. Listen to the guide on board to see all the landmarks you'll pass in the water.

After, your guide will meet you for a walking tour around the park, stopping at the best places for views and photos. Learn about the daredevils who challenge the raging falls while you watch the water crashing.

Walk with your guide to the trolley and get your trolley pass and tickets to Cave of the Winds. Hop on and off the trolley as you please and take your time exploring Luna Island, Three Sisters Island, Terrapin Point, and the Cave of the Winds.

Skip the ticket line at Cave of the Winds and walk below the falls to view the majesty of Niagara up close. Feel the power of the gushing water on the Hurricane Deck and climb to higher levels to get even closer to the action.

Make use of the trolley all day and into the night. If you’ve got time, catch the illumination of the falls and the fireworks display depending on the season. Ask your guide about fun places to explore, have a meal, or grab some drinks in between your sightseeing.
