I was going to tour NY side of Niagara Falls myself but on the day I arrived it was raining. I spoke to the concierge at the Days Inn and I was convinced that this tour would be better for me than my roaming around in the rain not even knowing where I was going as it was my first time to Niagara Falls. It all worked out great and I was happy I went. The convenience of having the bus and a tour guide telling you everything made it a worthwhile event so I'm glad I did it. The guide was very informative and he also watched over our items while we left a lot of things on the bus. He also provided us with rain coats which really helped keep all of us dry. It was a bit expensive considering it only covered 2 experiences that required paid admissions but I was on vacation and was happy for the convenience of everything provided.
