Your tour begins with pickup from your Niagara Falls area hotel.

Visitors outside of these months instead journey behind Horseshoe Falls for an equally thrilling experience. Then, descend 175 feet (53 meters) to the Hurricane Deck at the Cave of the Winds exhibit—the closest point visitors can get to the water and within feet of Bridal Veil Falls. Prepare your documents for the border crossing and head to Canada for the most iconic views of the falls, plus a trip to Queen Victoria Park, Skylon Tower, the Floral Clock, and more. Tour concludes with drop-off at your area accommodation. Please note: The Maid of the Mist portion of this tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls.

        Maid of mist tour
        Excellent tour. It was a long tour but we got to see lots of great views of the falls. It was a bit of a long tour for 3 kids 8 and under but otherwise I would recommend it.

        Cannot fault Debbie and her daredevils. Wonderful tour and itinerary. A busy few hours and every thing you will need she is very informative and careful with everything she does. Brilliant experience and what we saw: could not fault her for her knowledge and care.

        Eclipse Tour
        We had the best time on our tour! Marty is a great tour guide, his love of his home town ( Niagara Falls) and the rich history he shared with us. He kept all of us interested from grandmother's, daughter to granddaughters age 10 and 11. I can't thank him enough for the wonderful experience. Thanks Marty!!! Celestial Welch

        Woooo Hooo! We're Dale's Kool Kats!!!!!
        My husband and I headed up to Niagara Falls to catch the eclipse. We had been there only a day when we booked our tour with "Over the Falls" for the next day. Not only did that day prove to be the best day, but we lucked out with getting an excellent tour guide, Dale! He was a wealth of information, a great story teller, and boy, did he have the jokes! He had a great system in place to keep track of us and keep us from getting lost, LOL! We had a fantastic time!!! Thank you, Dale and to "Over the Falls!"

        Best tour ever!
        Our experience with Marty as our guide was phenomenal. Taking the tour was the best choice we could have made. We didn’t have to worry about parking, figuring out where,” to go, getting tickets and all the other logistics. Marty not only took great care of us, he made sure we saw the falls from so many different locations which gave us the best experience. He was so knowledgeable about the falls, the city and gave us a great appreciation of everything we were seeing all along the way. He also did those nice things like dropping into a great local bakery for a grab and go lunch. We even went back before going home to get more baked goods. He added such a special touch….. and yes we were tired by the end of the day but it was a great tired! We would do it again on our next visit and we would request the tour with Marty!

        Jessica was our tour guide and she was excellent. She knew so much and she shared so well. She also had a great sense of humor. I would like to note that I had to use a wheelchair and she was so accommodating and helpful. She’s a keeper.

        Uh Canadian side trip takes you to America…ugh.
        So it’s a Canadian side tour that crosses you BACK into the United States for the boat. Adds about an hour and a half to any trip depending on traffic. If you’re staying in Canada? Do a literal Canadian tour that stays totally in Canada! There must be one. I enjoyed the tour. Great time. Luckily we couldn’t cross the bridge and stayed on the Canadian side. Ha. But had we crossed??? Ugh. Highly recommend the trip otherwise.

      The tour was the best! There was so much to see and the photos are so good!
      Our tour guide, Eduardo, was the best! He helped me with my mom who is in a wheelchair.
      He told us so many facts that if gone on our own we would never have known any of them!

      Our Over the Falls Tour was great. It was so nice to have Dana as our tour guide. She took the time to take our pictures everywhere we went and she had the best tips for us at each location. We saw everything you would want to see and it was awesome to see both sides on US and Canada. Loved the tour. Thanks Dana!!!

      Oh my gosh!!! What a time our family had. There were 6 of us aged from 10 to 70-odd. We were shown the best views, given the best facts and all had the best time.

      The Maid of The Mist and Skylin were highlights but even lunch and driving from one location to another was a treat.

      Our Tour Guide, Nick, not only shared his passion for the Falls, but made all of us on the trip (15 in all) feel like a gang/family. He made us laugh with his Dad jokes, stunned us with his knowledge and generally made us feel extremely welcome and special.

      Thank you Nick!!!!

      The tour that covers it all! Our guide, Dana, was extremely thorough and caring. We started with a cold and rainy day but by the end, the sun was shining and the Falls were stunning. Dana made sure she took pictures for all the groups on our tour.
