"Were Niagara but a cataract of sand, would you travel your thousand miles to see it?", haunted the question the novelist. And the reader too. And a water body seen but not touched or viewed close is not at all seen. Maid of the Mist offers the visitors to experience three cascade at one go. Boat rides available from both... More

We did the Maid of the Mist Boat Ride. The Boat leaves every 20 minutes and the trip is just under 20 mins return. They provide you with pink ponchos to keep you dry. Your shoes may get wet so don't wear anything too fancy. Make sure to bring a go pro or waterproof camera as you do get quite... More

Excellent experience. You get right up to the bottom of the falls, makes you feel like the boat is about to tip over and get swallowed up. One of our best experiences during our USA trip

Wet and wild ride, you get closer to afalls on a good day. Either way you will get wet and some good photo opportunities.

My family took a trip to Niagara Falls over the summer. We went to both the NY & Canadian side. The maid of the mist was a great family activity to do. You get soaked so don't wear anything you don't want to get wet! The staff was friendly & we had an enjoyable time.

Awe inspiring. You can see what it's all about online but there's nothing like experiencing it yourself. You can't get more close up to the Falls than this. A must do!

I think this has been one of the most favourite things I have ever done. It was so exiting, when the boat is heading towards the Falls it's just so incredible. I was at the front of the boat and I had my camera out for as long as I could but when we where approaching the Falls I quickly... More

The trip to Niagara fall is incomplete without maid of the mist ride as it takes you near the fall so you can see the Niagara fall and other falls around closely. Try to grab a place on the upper deck. The plastic raincoats are really cute so don't forget to get clicked in them and do return them too.

This is a must if you visit the falls. You get on a boat with a lot of other people and get really close to the falls.the wait is not to long. One thing is it is hard to find a good spot on the boat. Like I said it can be crowded. You have to get on early. If... More

This is the one tour that you do NOT want to miss out on if you visit. After all that is what you are there for. To see the falls and find out the history. This was a great tour that you can learn a lot and its fun!!!
