Niagara Falls is simply amazing. The powerful combination of three separate waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls must be experienced in person to realize their magnificence. On this 2-day trip, travel from a New York City hotel in the morning (free pickup is provided) to the airport for a 1-hour flight to Niagara Falls, NY.

Another short transfer then arrives in the heart of Niagara Falls, in front of the famous Maid of the Mist cruise ship.

An overnight stay is at a hotel within walking distance to the falls.

After an oftentimes wet cruise, wander the city streets to visit various aerospace and science museums, casinos, observatories, and much more.

Extending out dramatically over Niagara Gorge, this architectural wonder affords unobstructed views of the wild cascades of Niagara Falls, as well as the raging whitewater below.

For aviation enthusiasts, visit the Ira G. Ross Aerospace Museum. This organization is devoted to the efforts of the Western United States during the war years and includes the recently salvaged Bell P-39 Airacobra, one of the principal American fighter aircrafts in service during World War II.

After being collected from your Midtown Manhattan hotel, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Upstate New York (approximately one hour). On arrival, you will be met by your guide for the day to board the bus to Niagara Falls.

After lunch, it’s time to board a Niagara Falls boat cruise for an up-close Niagara Falls experience. The 30-minute cruise takes you through the foaming waters to the base of the American Falls and the basin of Horseshoe Falls. You will get close enough to the falls to feel their cool mist on your skin.

The Niagara Falls boat cruises operate only in the warmer months, typically from May to October, so if you are traveling from November to April you may visit the Journey Behind the Falls instead. An elevator takes you behind the great sheet of Niagara Falls for a thunderous up-close view of Niagara Falls. Please note that Niagara Falls boat cruises may cease to operate earlier than October 31 depending on weather.

Due to the extreme popularity of this tour, a minimum 5-day advance booking is required.

Please note: At time of booking you are required to provide each passenger’s name and date of birth as it appears on their passport(s). You are also required to provide your hotel details so that the supplier can schedule your pickup. Failure to include this information will result in your reservation not being completed.
