I am really glad to have taken the trip and this agency did a very good job. While it is a long drive from NYC, the coach bus made the travel as good as possible + there was a stop every 2 1/2 hours. The places we stopped for lunch were quality restaurant/grocery stores. So all palette or cost was able to be accommodated. There was also a very interesting stop and walk at Watkins Glen Statepatk. The time spent at Niagara was very good and there was good amount of time for walking, looking and photos. Hotel was strictly for sleeping and was fine. The shopping was alright and did give some free time to walk and stretch. In total, I was happy I made this selection. I was a single. It was accommodating to all ages, nationalities.

For anyone who has never been to Niagara this is a must. We expected the Falls to be spectacular but this completely surpassed our expectations. Fairly essential to do the two day trip as it goes in to Canada for a short while, where we found the Falls were even more spectacular!

This was definitely a trip I would highly recommend ! It was a magical experience seeing The Niagra Falls in the snow ! The guide was great and the trip so well organised. Loved it ! My daughter and I went for her 21 st birthday treat and it was a fantastic choice !
