What To Expect

Maid Of The Mist
The boat starts off at a calm part of the Niagara River, near the Rainbow Bridge, and takes its passengers past the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then into the dense mist of spray inside the curve of the Horseshoe Falls, also known as the Canadian Falls

22 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Cave of the Winds
An elevator takes you from the area between the American and Canadian Falls down to the level of the Niagara River at the base of the American Falls. A series of redwood decks and platforms allow sightseers to walk right up to the base of the Bridal Veil Falls with water crashing down right on them and flowing beneath the decking.

40 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Bridal Veil Falls
The Bridal Veil Falls faces to the northwest and has a crest 56 ft (17 m) wide. The Bridal Veil is similar in appearance to the American Falls, starting with a vertical fall of 78 ft (24 m).

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Niagara Falls Observation Tower
Extending out dramatically over Niagara Gorge, the architectural wonder of the Niagara Falls USA Prospect Point Observation Tower affords unobstructed views of the wild cascades of Niagara Falls, as well as the raging whitewater below.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Horseshoe Falls
Horseshoe Falls, predominantly Canadian section of Niagara Falls on the Niagara River. It is separated from the American Falls by Goat Island and derives its name from its curving 3,000-foot (900-metre) crest.

Worth Every Penny!

Absolutely AMAZING! This tour includes everything you want to do at Niagara - without excursions you don't want (we did one that went to random places - only remotely related to the falls). And if you're lucky enough to get Dana as your guide - you'll be set! She was so upbeat & knowledgeable about everything Niagara & I swear she knows every employee - she got us in early for Cave of the Winds and we had it to ourselves for the first 15 minutes we were there, she also was able to get us added as the last people to the Maid of the Mist tour that was just about to board - no way those things happen with a random guide.
Great first experience

Mist of the Winds boat ride was beautiful but wet. The tour guide for rest of trip very informative.
Great Small Group!

Small group is the way to go! Dana from See Sight Tours did a great job on our tour. It was nice to be picked up at our hotel, given background information as well as Niagara Falls history, and easy access to all the attractions. I would highly recommend this tour!
Great tour!
