Niagara Falls is really amazing, worth for a visit. Visit Canada side too, if possible. We had a great tour guide, Okai (?) a native Japanese living in the USA for decades. Japanese guests had extra service with information on their mother tounge. He was really professional and brilliant, not only being always polite and patient to everyone but he also remained calm and positive when we faced difficulties, such as the bus broken down or the need to change our driver. He saved the day and the experience for the whole group. Really appreciate his kindness. The company was fair to provide access to an extra attraction (visit to the Cave of the Wind) when it turned out that the driver cannot proceed with us. Actually this was the best of all attractions, so we felt to be more or less compensated for the 5+ hours delay. We had some controversial feelings with the tidiness of the bus, sitting at the rear was not too much fun. They should pay more attention to this since guest sitting at the rear pay the same fee.

Hi Timothy! Thank you for your review. The bus did have a breakdown in route to Niagara Falls, but a replacement bus was provided within 20 minutes. This allowed us to spend almost the standard amount of time at the American Falls. We hope you enjoyed the Maid of the Mist boat ride along with the views of the falls. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Stephanie, Empire Vacations

Our tour guide was very nice and experienced, I had 10 month baby with me he has been very patience with us, he made sure we all are together and even we late little bit he waited for us! However, I feel like this 2 days one night trip is very hectic, we went to Canada side approximately 9 pm so we really didn’t have enough time to walk around and enjoy, next morning we headed to American side falls for maid of the mist , I just loved the Maid of the mist experience! Such a amazing view from close !

“Wow” Amazing Tour
Janice_W
, Jun 2022
This tour is very memorable because we are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. The tour guides and the driver were very nice. They were very knowledgeable and we learned many things about the history of every place we’ve been. They were also very accommodating whenever we have question and inquiries. We supposed to leave NYC at 6:30 am but we left 7:40 am already. It was kinda unorganized when they were checking our documents because everyone wants to go first. It would have been better if they asked us to fall in line and they check the senior’s and person with disability’s documents first. Then not everyone in the bus wearing mask. There are tourists there who are coughing throughout the travel inside the bus and they only wear mask in Canada immigration because it is required. So we are hoping we didnt get the the virus even though it was not covid. So nice also because every 2 1/2 hours we stopped to stretch out, go to restrooms and eat. The hotel we stayed at Canada was nice and clean. I also enjoyed the breakfast. Most of the time we were in the bus because it was 7 1/2 hours travel (one way) but overall this tour was very fun. The niagara falls was so spectacular. It was really a “wow”. I would recommend this tour to my friends and family.

Niagara Falls is great. Heavenly. The hotel stay was very close to Niagra and a 2-day trip is definitely recommended. Maid of the Mist is must do. Night view of Niagra is a must-do. Well planned trip and had all the elements at the right time. But the guides were not fun and did not make the trip enjoyable. Felt more like a school excursion trip.

It was my third time to the Niagara Falkd but it was still so enjoyable. The long road trip was made enjoyable with just the right number of stops to break the monotony and stretch our legs. I’m glad we decided to stay one night at the Niagara Falls as anything less will be too short as with my previous trips.

I had a good time on this one! There's an option to stay on the America side, or catch the views from Canada. I would suggest Canada as it definitely has better views and lots of entertainment including several shops, casinos and a ferris wheel. (at least from the pictures I saw from others who went there, I was on the American side, and although there were a lot of viewpoints, it was quite crowded and hard to get a spot during 'prime time' of the lights and fireworks show. Though most of all I would like to thank our guides Brian and Etleva - - Brian is multitalented and kept the whole bus entertained with humor, wit, stories and song, and conversation with everyone, making us feel included. - Etleva was very sweet. I wanted to check out an attraction which was some distance away, and since I was alone, she gladly accompanied me. She made sure I was comfortable and having fun throughout the journey. - Our driver Carlito who helped with the luggage and got us back 45 mins earlier. Ride was smooth and comfortable. Thanks all!

Brian our tour guide was nothing short of amazing. He constantly checked in with each one of us and told such interesting stories about the history of the places. The tour itself was well thought out and gave us ample time at each stop. If you have to get a visa to go to the Canada side, I think it’s worth it. You are next to the horseshoe falls and the view is incredible. You can also see the American Falls, when it’s all lit up at night. As an unexpected bonus there were fireworks in the evening at 10pm over the falls. We were just lucky to be there then. There were lots of restaurants, fast food options, gift shops and experiences such as the Ferris wheel, on the Ontario side of the falls. I heard there are far less options on the US side. After the Maid of the Mist ride, do not toss your poncho immediately as there’s a spot where you can climb up on the side of the waterfall and you will need it for that if you want to do that. There were plenty of food options (both cold and hot) at where we stopped for lunch. It has been a good trip and I’m glad I did it.
