“See the Falls for yourself”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

See the falls by yourself. Stay away from the grab and go tour companies. The cost ($70 per person) is NOT worth it. Purchase your tickets separately, then set off on foot or by car to the different locations. If you want to park get there early of later in the afternoon.

ON the state park grounds take the trolley it will get you where you want to go with a mouthy "tour guide".

The Maid of Mist, Cave and Winds and just the scenic view of the falls is Great. I will be there again.

Bring food, water, etc. with you. The scalper charges are just unreal in the park area. $3 for a bottle of water and that is the cheap side.

“2-Day Niagara Falls n1000 Islands Tour from New York: L & L tours or Take Tours”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

VERY BADLY ORGANIZED, OVERCHARGED and Waste Of Money

The trip was very badly organized, for the whole of first day we travelled more than 650 miles and spent most of the time in the bus. The thousand island trip the first day was of 50 minutes, so it was 9 hours travel and 50 minutes of sightseeing. The second day niagra falls was good but it took us 10 hours to get back to New York and we even missed our Metro North train at 10:48 pm and had to pay 300 $ for taxi to go to Danbury,CT. It was a harrrowing experience sitting for 10 hours in the bus. On top of that we were overcharged with 60 $ attraction fee.The attraction fee is very high, we checked the ticket rates and it came out to be 43$ per person. So they overcharged us by 17$ and then when we said we do not want to pay tip as we are not satisfied with the service, they literally forced us to pay, although we did not. Please do no take this trip. I do not recommend this to anyone. Take your own vehicle instead.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Definitely a must-see! Whether or not you are a lover of nature the falls is definitely an experience. Majestic to look at but also quite calming. Totally free to just stand up take pics and be enthralled in its beauty, or, be daring and take the boat ride on maid of the mist or do the journey behind the falls tour. No matter how your time is spent at 'the falls' it is sure to be one of the most memorable experiences!

“Magnificent falls!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We joined the bus tour with America Asia Tour Center from New York through Philadelphia and D.C. In May of 2013. It was my second time visiting there. Make sure to view the orientation video and ride the misty boat! Catch the rainbow in your photos!
