Niagara Falls American-Side Tour with Maid of the Mist Boat Ride

144 Reviews

  • Location: Niagara Falls
  • Duration: Varies from 4 to 5 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2972AA

During your time in Niagara Falls, take a tour of the American side of the spectacular falls. Highlights include a walking adventure along the incomparable Cave of the Winds and an exciting cruise to the base of Horsehoe Falls on the famous Maid of the Mist. Ride in an elevator to the bottom of Niagara Gorge and before ascending Prospect Observation Tower for a view from above.

A glass elevator takes you deep into Niagara Gorge where you can get as close as 20 ft from the falls on the Cave of Winds trip. Are you brave enough to stand on Hurricane Deck? Ascend to the extended viewing deck of the Prospect Observation Tower and let Niagara's mist kiss your cheek. Don a souvenir raincoat and hop aboard the world famous Maid of the Mist boat ride. Sail past the American and Bridal Veil Falls before coming to a dramatic stop inside the mouth of the roaring Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

This tour is seasonal and operates from May through to October.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist portion of this tour departs from the US side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

Definitely worth the time and money!

So glad we took the American-side Tour. Our guide, Pat R. was very knowledgable of the area and made the small group tour worthwhile. No large buses! He kept us on schedule and was able to give us a feel for the area 12,000 years ago. Highly recommend this tour.
