If you'd like, you will also have the ability to cross into Canada as long as you have the proper visa.

Each night in the summer, the Falls transform from natural wonder to a can't miss this illuminated spectacle. Donned in changing bright colors from across the rainbow, the combination of lights and fireworks is a phenomenon you will not soon forget.
After this full day of exploring Niagara Falls, sit back, take a nap and enjoy the quiet drive back through the forests of New York State until we reach the Big Apple where this tour will come to its conclusion.

What an adventure! My family and I booked this last minute with not a lot of expectations. The company's customer service was fantastic! we loved our driver and tour guide. The bus was also comfortable and we were happy to have wifi onboard. They also gave us complimentary travel pillows to keep! they are cute and comfortable. Then!! Niagara Falls was amazing!!!! wow!! so happy to have seen and experienced its majesty. Thank you to Royal Tours for an amazing adventure. We booked other tours with them and will recommend them to all.
The 8 hour passenger van ride was comfortable. Daniel stopped, as needed, for additional restroom breaks. Breakfast and lunch were fast food. The Falls are magnificent! Our tour guide, Brian, was a font of knowledge and takes great pictures! He cared about our comfort, making sure we stayed hydrated.
Very Long Day but Worth It
We left late at night and arrived for sunrise. We really wanted to see Niagara Falls when we were in the US so being able to take a one-day tour was great. The Falls were beautiful and we even got to visit Canada for a bit. Another check off the bucket list!
