As a Niagara Falls native, the power of the falls never ceases to amaze. This is an amazing vantage point to experience all the glory of Niagara Falls. Busy, overpriced, and packed with tourists; but if you go on vacation to the Falls you kinda...More

Our family took the Hornblower tour of all the falls. The tour is well organised and they provide a recyclable plastic rain jacket to protect you from the waterfall spray - which is copious! This is the closest you can get to the falls and...More

What a fantastic way to fully appreciate the power and beauty of the falls. The funicular railway was a beautiful way to begin the trip and was worth the extra $3. You can get beautiful views and photographs from around the top of the falls,...More

The best way to experience the power and beauty of Niagara Falls is to get up close and personal (by that I mean wet) aboard the Hornblower cruise. Like USA’s famous Maid of the Mist these boats take you close to the face of the...More

Great experience! We were on the top level & got soaked but it was completely worth it for the view.

Nothing can prepare you for the thunderous power of the falls. It was very impressive. Unfortunately, we couldn't hear the recorded narration over the noise of nature. Wheel chair access is good. Definitely recommended.

This was the highlight of our Niagara trip. They give you a rain poncho but be aware any part of you body not covered by the poncho will get wet. So glad we took extra shoes. But what an experience a must do!!!

If you don't do anything else in Niagara Falls, you have to do this boat ride. This was truly the highlight for my husband and myself. The boat takes you up to the falls and into the mist where you sit for abut 5 minutes....More

I believe they do not open until the last week of May and weather depending. Also the Fire Works do not start until the First weekend of June or maybe May 29th weekend.

I was on the maid of the mist. There's no difference in the two. Same boat, same route, different name to which boat ride you hop on: Canada or US.

Hornblower and the Whirlpool Jet Boats are not operational during the winter months. Therefore, if you intend on doing either of the two, I would suggest spring summer or Falls would be the best times of year.
