332 Prospect St, Niagara Falls, USA

The Basics

The best way to experience Niagara Falls is on a boat ride. From the New York side, Maid of the Mist boat tours run day and night, when you can see the falls illuminated.

You can also experience the falls from the vantage points at Niagara Falls State Park, Goat Island, and the Hurricane Deck at Cave of the Winds. For a bird’s-eye perspective, venture to the observation deck of the Niagara Falls Observation Tower, or go even higher during a plane or helicopter flightseeing tour over the falls.

Niagara Falls in One Day from New York City
We saw some negative reviews. That's BS. It's a long ride, about 7 hours one way, but the bus is comfortable. The guys are helpfull, have something to tell you on the ride about NYC, the state and Niagara falls. Roberto is very helpfull and gives good advise for other trips you can do on your own. Like the American dream mall or Jersey Gardens. Hard working people, good Times. Take the trip.

Niagara Falls American-Side Tour with Maid of the Mist Boat Ride
Tour was great experience. It lasted about five hours. Our guide Linny was the best. He made jokes along the way and was very informative and interactive. His lunch recommendation was the best food I had on the trip. The bus was clean. The actual Bridal Veil Falls and Cave of the winds are must see and experience for anyone coming to Niagara Falls. Book this tour, it included do much and made our weekend girls trip memorable

Niagara Falls American Side Highlights Tour
Our first trip to Niagara Falls on a beautiful autumn day. The visual spectacle can’t be any better. The power of the falls must be experienced. The history of the Falls was skillfully and accurately explained to us by Prady who was exceptional as both our driver and guide.

Niagara Falls Night Illumination Tour: American, Bridal and Horseshoe Falls
Our tour was amazing, Kellie was joined by Cheri for our tour last night. They were both very informative and very pleasant to be around. They interacted well with our small group (4), and answered all our questions. Cheri was training and knows all things about Buffalo and the Niagara Falls area, Great Job Cheri. Kellie has stories about everything, she made the tour very enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is interested in the Falls and it’s history.

We stayed at an Airbnb nearby, the over the falls tour picked us right next door. The bus was clean. We got to experience so much more than just booking the boat tour. Would recommend to friends

Amtrak trains and buses operate between New York City and Niagara Falls, though it's a 7- to 10-hour journey. The quickest way to get there from NYC is to fly to Buffalo Airport, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from the falls, and take a taxi or shuttle bus from there. Bus tours offer round-trip transportation to the falls from Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and New York City.
