Overview

Get as close as possible to Niagara Falls on this escape to one of the world’s most incredible natural wonders. Feel the powerful rush of the falls from the Prospect Point Observation Tower, overlooking the American falls. Take a journey to the edge of the rushing water — by boat on the Maid of the Mist and by land on the Cave of the Winds walking adventure.
  • Half-day Niagara Falls tour
  • Ride on the Maid of the Mist boat in season
  • Visit famous Niagara Falls attractions including Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls
  • View the falls atop the American Observation Tower
  • Explore the adventurous Cave of the Winds in season

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This hassle-free tour includes hotel pickup and skip-the-line admission to two top Niagara Falls attractions.
This is as close as anyone can get to Niagara Falls—without riding over them in a barrel, of course. This seasonal (May to October) tour travels to all the edges of the falls.

The journey begins with an elevator ride down into the Niagara Gorge, where wooden walkways along the Niagara River lead to the observation deck of the Cave of the Winds, just a few feet from the powerful rush of the falls. It’s like being caught in a tropical storm. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Then it’s another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls—the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls—from the observation tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view of all three as the waters rage below.

Finally, hop on board the popular Maid of the Mist for a boat ride to the very edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America.

Notice: The Maid of the Mist departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers must have proper credentials to enter the United States.

Operating dates of the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are approximate and depend on weather conditions.

Our tour guide Dan was great! He was very informative with the history of the falls and the area which we otherwise would not have known. All of the activities and stops on this tour were fantastic, much easier than if we were to do all of these activities separately on our own. Also met some very nice people that were on our tour as well which was great.
