Visiting Niagara Falls from New York can take several hours by car. On this tour, maximize your time with round-trip domestic flights and a bus transfer across the border. Arrive in time for lunch at a restaurant overlooking the falls, then admire the mighty falls from both the US and Canadian sides on a Maid of the Mist boat cruise (out-of-season travelers visit Journey Behind the Falls instead).

    Niagara Falls Canada
    Stop: 6 hours -
    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 the famous "Maid of the Mist" boat 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 "Maid of the Mist" operates only in the warmer months, from May to October, so if you are traveling from November to April you will 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. This tour is likely to sell out! The Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Air regularly sells out weeks in advance, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!

This a great way to see Niagara Falls if you have limited time and are staying in New York. The falls were truly spectacular and we got to see them from both sides of the border and from all different angles. Hotel pickup and drop off was efficient and the flights worked well

I was very worried about booking this tour, as its not a cheap trip and I kept reading poor reviews about cancelled return flights and unorganised staff. This was definitely not the case for our trip. We were picked up at our hotel at 4am, there were several different pickups

Do not buy! The scam is simple. They say: 'In the unlikely case of flights being cancelled for any reason (eg: mechanical, weather) the tour operator reserves the right to substitute the return flight with return by bus if no alternate flights available." I though :" UNLIKELY".
