Full description

On this seasonal tour, you can enjoy a Maid of the Mist Boat ride from 15 May to 16 November. Venture into the heart of Horseshoe Falls and feel the mist on your face as you watch 675,000 gallons of water pour down the falls and into the river below. Take in views from the Crows nest walkway and from the Observation Deck. In the Winter months, from 7 November to 14 May, the tour will explore the Cave of the Winds. Meet at the Power Portal and walk through the Park, stopping at the incredible Horseshoe Falls and learn about the men and woman who tried to defy the Falls in death-defying stunts. If the weather permits, even walk over to Luna Island and see the American and Bridal Veil Falls. Lastly, go to the Cave of the Winds Attraction and enter the World Changed here Pavilion and the Movie before taking an elevator down into the Cave of the Winds Walkway where you will view from the bottom the iconic Falls from below. As you explore, your guide will answer all your questions and give you information on how to make the best of your time here in Niagara Falls.

Let me begin by stating that David was the greatest travel advisor ever. He made my husband and I very happy to meet him. He was extremely professional, kind, and knowledgeable about the history of the Niagara Falls. He also made the material interesting to learn. This was my husband and I's first time visiting the falls, and he just made us feel at home. He has such a sweet personality and went above and beyond for us. The best tour guide out there is David! We for sure will be visiting again! -Cynithia & Rick

We booked this as we wanted to know more about the falls and our guide Mary really did make a difference. She was right on time at the meeting place and immediately gave us a true sense of the history of the falls and the majesty of them, together with a lot of humour. Well worth the money and I’d certainly do it again!

Brett, our guide, gave us a wonderful tour filled with Niagara Falls history and fun facts. He helped us board the Maid of the Mist and gave us tips on the best places to stand on the boat for great views, and the views were spectacular. Afterwards, we all walked together in the state park, where Brett discussed Niagara Falls geology and history and the daredevils that risked their lives at the falls successfully and not. A most enjoyable experience!
