Feel the rush of the falls and take in stunning views. Next ride an elevator up to Prospect Point Observation Tower, where you can catch sight of all three of the falls. After, visit Goat Island, which separates the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls before taking a Maid of the Mist boat ride.

Never having done a tour before, I didn't really know what to expect. Ross was awesome, extremely informative about everything Niagara Falls related. We had our kids with us and he was just as sincere listening to any questions they may have had.
