If you don't mind getting soaked, this is something you can't miss. The views of the falls are breathtaking and I would definitely do this again.

Adults are jaded when they travel. Been there, done that. But the Maid of the Mist is unlike anything else in the world. In the busy months, you'll stand on a seriously long line (that moves fairly quickly) and get handed your blue plastic rain poncho and think, "Really? I need this?" Really, you do, if you choose to stand... More

You cannot come to Niagara without a trip on the Maid of the Mist. There is a moment when you are in front of the Horseshoe Falls where all you hear are the falls, all you feel is the mist, and all you can see is the mist and the top of the HS falls - you really feel totally... More

The ride was fun and a good view of the falls. We went on a Saturday afternoon and the line somewhat long, we waiting about 45 minutes to board the boat.

An amazing experience to get up close with the Falls from a view you can obviously see from no where else but right at the base! Luckily, we had the choice of being the last ones on the boat before ours or the first ones on the next boat - we elected the next boat. As the first ones on... More

I hate waiting in long lines; our MotM tour got us on the boat quickly and we were by the base of the falls in no time. You get a blue rain slicker to wear at no extra cost, and soon you are RIGHT under the falls! You really feel the power of nature being that close. Worth the trip.

best experience of Niagara Falls. Although looking at the falls is beautiful, the awesome power of the falls is more apparent looking at them close up!

It was an awesome experience to get wet on the mist of the falls, on its drizzle, with the turbulance of the boat, surrounded by 3 or 4 rainbows yes 3 or 4 rainbows around you, with the crowd cheering up...etc.. Its Superb... and the sight of illuminated Niagra from the goat island / park is splendid..

I live in Buffalo and never went before. Finally did and it far exceeded my expectations. If you find yourself in a position to go, take it! It is better than any amusement park ride. I was in awe of MOther Nature`s tremendous force. Word of advice: get there early to avoid waiting in line. We got there at 9:45am... More

To cool off in 90 degree weather, my friends and I decided to get close to the falls via boat. Maid of the Mist Tour offered us a misty view with cool-down side effects. We were delighted with the excursion and the affordable price....a must-do the next time I visit....
