The Maid of the Mist

Before visiting the famous falls themselves up close, you will be able to have a sneak peek by having a buffet lunch with a panoramic view of the falls. Afterwards, you’ll take the exciting Maid of the Mist. This ferry service has been operating since 1846, will allow you to really feel the power of the Niagara Falls as it travels right up to the base of the Horseshoe Falls. Experience the magic of the falls as the mist surrounds you!

The Maid of the Mist is typically operational during the warmer months (May until October) and if you are visiting in the winter months, you will be able to see the falls in a very different way. You will take the Journey Behind the Falls – an elevator that takes you behind the massive sheet of the Niagara Falls. Hear the thunder of the Niagara Falls roar from 13 stories above you. Dropping vertically at 50 meters, every minute more than 160,000 m3 of water falls over the edge of the falls, making it not only a natural spectacle but also an extremely powerful waterfall.

The Horseshoe Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the American Falls

You will be able to view the falls from both the American and the Canadian sides; see the Horseshoe Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the American Falls. You’ll also see the Niagara Whirlpool. Snap loads of photos and decide which of the sides has a better view of the falls.

Eric’s Tip: “Of course I’ve done this tour myself: all the pictures on this page are from this tour. It’s expensive, but I found it really worth the money! Niagara Falls is the largest tourist attraction in Canada which means that it can be crowded. I was there in April with good weather and hardly any people. If you have the possibility, do the trip on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday because it’s a lot quieter than during the weekend.”
