Niagara Falls Day Trip by Air from New York

Discover the incredible power and breathtaking beauty of one of the world’s greatest natural wonders on this day trip from New York – ideal for those who only have a limited time in which to see Niagara Falls.

After an early morning flight to Upstate New York, transfer to Niagara for your first sight of the spectacular falls where a staggering 750,000 gallons of water pass over the edge every second!

This half day guided tour of covers both the American and Canadian sides, delivering multiple breathtaking views of the Bridal Veil, Horseshoe Falls, Goat Island and Queen Victoria Park.

Your day trip to the Niagara Falls begins with an early morning pick-up from your Manhattan hotel for a short flight to upstate New York. You will be met on arrival by your tour guide and transferred to the Niagara Falls by coach.

First view the American side of Niagara Falls and then cross the border into Canada where the most spectacular side of the falls can been seen. Among the many highlights you will see Bridal Veil, Horseshoe Falls, Goat Island and Queen Victoria Park.

The tour then pauses for a buffet-style lunch at a restaurant overlooking the falls, before the chance to get up close to the awesome power of Niagara Falls on a 30-minute boat ride (Summer months only - normally May to October).

Witness the true force of the falls and appreciate the thunderous roar on this 30-minute cruise that takes you through the foaming waters to the base of the American Falls and the basin of Horseshoe Falls.

If you are travelling between November and April when it is too cold for the Niagara Falls boat ride, you will be taken to the Scenic Tunnels instead, which is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to navigate the old miners' routes and view the falls from behind!
