The service was excellent. Both the tour guy (Andriy) and the bus driver (Herbert) were very nice and explained everything in detail. It was a beautiful and unforgettable experience. Totally recommend!

Took this organized trip in early January 2020. Booking was easy and efficient, we left NYC at 7am from a fairly easy spot to find in the city. Bus ride was made much easier with appropriately placed breaks and pull overs, the driver Harold was a kind, patient man and an excellent, safe driver. Got to the american side of the falls with enough time to enjoy the bridge view and walk around the park before heading back to the bud to cross the border to Canada, we were able to stop at the duty free as well. We arrived at the hotel (Ramada, exceeded expectations) at a very reasonable hour, around 6:30pm, and were given a free night to roam about and walk to the falls at night. Wake up call the next day was around 7am, left after breakfast to see the falls in day light and take the Journey Behind the Falls tour, as the boat ride is unavailable during winter months. From there, with sufficient timing we left to head back to New York with ample stops for food etc. (bus was also equipped with a restroom), got 1.5 hours at the Tannersville PA outlet for shopping and headed straight back to NYC from there, got back around 7:30pm. All in all this trip is very well thought out, not at all overwhelming or exhausting. Our tour guide,Bruno, also elevated the experience with interesting anecdotes along the way, he was very patient with the large group we were and accommodated whatever individual needs he could. I highly recommend this quick and satisfying trip!

We only had a week in New York so I was concerned with losing 2 days on this trip spending most of the time on the bus, but the bus trip was great, they way they planned the breaks it didn't feel like we spent all day on a bus and the drive is very picturesque, on the way there we stopped at Watkins Glen and did a beautiful walk to see waterfalls etc (wear shoes!! I wasn't aware we were doing this so I had thongs on so it was a bit of a rough walk), really enjoyed this and it was a great break and stretch of the legs both days we stopped for lunch at these amazing supermarkets which had a fantastic fresh food buffet type meal area, the food was great and had absolutely everything to cater for anybody once we got to Niagara it was a bit of a muck around and a long process, we had to drop people off on the American side and then had a long delay getting over the boarder and then a bit of a muck around allocating room keys at the hotel, so from the time we saw our first look at the falls to the time we got into our room it was a 3 hour process and it was late, so that was the only negative experience we got to get some dinner around 8pm and then have a look around Niagara which is a very unique place and fantastic to get a good look around up at 5am for an early breaky and then back over the boarder to do the Maid of the Mist boat tour which was absolutely amazing - loved every minute and that half hour made the whole 2 day trip worth while the drive back was once again picturesque and pleasant, the afternoon break was at a factory outlet shopping centre where we got 1.5 hours free time to shop and we did that, could of spent a lot more time there but would of just done more damage to the credit card so was probably a good thing :) got back to NYC around 8pm Im glad we did it and in hindsight it was a lovely break from the hussle and bussle of NYC our guide Jonathan was very attentive to everyone's needs
