Discover the beauty and awesome power of Niagara Falls on a day trip from New York. You'll fly to Upstate New York, tour the falls on both the US and Canadian sides (don't forget your passport!), see all the sights, including a ride on a Niagara boat cruise or the Journey Behind the Falls. And at the end of an amazing day you'll take an evening flight back to New York.

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.

A great tour guide in Giuseppe who took us to all the sites, timed things perfectly to beat the crowds at the borders and gave us plenty of time at each location. An early start to the day but would highly recommend it - everything ran smoothly the whole day. Excellent!

An absolutely brilliant day and I would highly recommend the day trip to Niagara. The tour guide/bus driver that picked us up from Buffalo Airport couldn't do enough to make our day complete.
The only recommendation I would have is at drop off and pick up at JFK. Our group was a little lost and there needs to be better clarity and support. But otherwise a perfect day
