Amazing time at the Falls
May 2021 • Couples
This tour was absolutely amazing. The views were incredible and the tour covers a lot. The Maid of the Mist and The Cave of the Winds are a once in a lifetime experience. I also happened to become engaged on this trip, so I would also say it’s a very romantic place to be. The tour guide Nick was very energetic and informative. All together I had an incredible time on this tour and would recommend it highly.

Visiting Niagara Falls American Side
May 2021
This was a terrific tour. Our guide Nick was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the falls. the area and its history. On top of that is was very funny and entertaining. We were able to see all the attractions at Niagara State Park including Cave of the Winds which in itself was just as amazing as the Maid of the Mist Boat Ride. Plan on getting wet even with the poncho's they provide you on the Maid of the Mist Boat Ride. We hope to come back again to visit.

Nick thanks you for the kind 5 star review., he is glad to know you enjoyed the tour. We agree getting up close to the mighty Niagara Falls and feeling the spray...and even getting “a little wet” is all part of the experience and fun! Thank you choosing Over the Falls Tours, we hope you will return soon for another visit. 😎
