The Best....

One of the best experiences of my life. Safe, Clean and Great view. One of the only places where you can a full semicircular Rainbow within 40-50 meters.

This is one of the most amazing journeys you will ever take. Niagara Falls is right in our own backyard and I'm embarrassed to say I haven't been here in 15 years and my kids have never experienced the Maid of the Mist so yesterday we took a spur of the moment trip to NF. We parked on the NY... More

I guess this is a real must when at niagara and it was good to see both USA and Canadian falls. They are both breath taking but personally I preferred the Cave of the winds experience. I felt like I was been hearded onto the boat with masses of others, you couldn't hear anything that was been said over the... More

Best and amazing ferry service experience to view the Niagara falls. It was $17 USD and worth every penny.

I looked forward to riding on the Maid of the Mist for two months. I was definitely not disappointed. The boats are right on time. The sights are breathtakingly spectacular! I did not go on top of the boat because I was with someone who could never have climbed those steps and I didn't especially want to. But this was... More

When you are at Niagara Falls you must ride the Maid of the Mist. You get up close to the natural wonder of the falls! Absolutely breath taking!

If you go to Niagra falls, you must take the boat ride to get close to the falls. It is an awestruck experience. You don't really get the essence of the power of the falls unless you go on the boat or walk the caves.

You will get wet. If you choose to take the walkway next to the falls after your boat ride, you will get soaked. Pack extra. Extra clothes, extra shoes, extra towels. It's a great and beautiful experience that I think everyone should do at least once in their lives. Do it. You won't regret it. You will, however, get wet.... More
