Full description

Get up close to the scenic beauty of Niagara Falls, New York, on this half-day tour. Visit the American side's top attractions, including a ride aboard the world-famous Maid of the Mist. Your experienced and personable guide will share with you the region's rich history. Your tour begins with hotel pickup from Niagara Falls, New York, or Niagara Falls, Ontario aboard a climate-controlled bus. The first stop is Niagara Falls State Park. Descend 250 feet to the base of the American Falls to board the world-famous Maid of the Mist boat. Sail up to the Horseshoe Falls, to feel the refreshing spray and hear the roar of water rushing over its cliffs. Get up close and personal to the Falls at the Cave of the Winds. Descend 175 feet into the Niagara Gorge and then get kitted out in a poncho and specialized footwear. Hike a series of wooden walkways up to the famous "Hurricane Deck." Enjoy views of the Falls from various lookout spots, like Prospect Point and Terrapin Point. Walk around Whirlpool State Park for panoramic viewing of the Niagara Rapids and Whirlpool from atop the Niagara Gorge Trail.

John T was a fantastic tour guide, from Gray Line Tours, start to finish! He had a pleasant & humorous personality. He had great facts to share about the sights we were seeing & even some side points as we drove to our destinations. He was a safe driver & made sure our total group of 18 were accounted for throughout our tour. I highly recommend John & Gray Line Tours to anyone visiting the Niagara area! It really made our wedding anniversary trip a once in a lifetime experience!

The activities were quite good, the guide was very friendly but quite uncontrolled, an activity that supposedly lasted 4 hours. And it started at 10 a.m. They became 7 because you have to wait for your turn in the waiting line, so I missed doing an activity that was scheduled for 4.30 and they do not return the money even though it is supposedly the fault of the bad organization they have

We felt we saw and did everything we wanted on the American side of Niagara Falls with this tour. Efficiently run and very informative. Cave of the Winds and Maid of the Mist were both amazing!
