The review from 2019 was right!
As the title says the old review is dead accurate. I did the math before we left our hotel, the drive is roughly 7+ hours each way. We assumed it would be a tour bus, because normal people assume it would be a bus for such a long trip. When the driver arrived, the 2 of us and the other 9 people attending raised the issue of the van not being a bus. The driver made a point to say we be unable to obtain a refund, and explained that the booking states a smaller group gets a smaller vehicle. Upon reviewing the booking on viator, it does say, after going through multiple sub menus and fine print paragraphs that "vehicle is dependant upon group size." That's it, all it says. We asked the driver how many people fit in the van. 14. How many people do we have? 11. How many to get a bus? 12. Convenient that. Also, when bringing up the covid safety issues of having 12 people jammed together WITHOUT EVEN CHECKING FOR VACCINATION STATUS OF THE PASSENGERS, he replied that covid meant fewer bookings, so it wasn't cost effective for them to give more space. Given it cost $400+ for us already, rather than waste the money we masked up, sanitized and rode on. The driver was as described, fast, hit lots of bumps, and was actually late picking us up for the return. He wore a mask, but not when he was eating. Which would be ok, but he was eating sunflower seeds. For hours and hours and hours. So he basically didn't wear a mask. The guide at the falls was nice, didn't blow my mind but he did a good job explaining, directing, etc. We cut off from the tour shortly after the boat ride, the rest of the tour was a couple miles of walking to see the falls from various angles. We're lucky we did split off, as everything on the u.s. side of the falls is kind of sad and closes really early. The sponsored shops were closed while we We're there,, and by 6pm, the shops and restaurants nearby were all pretty much done, except Hard Rock. I'll make a separate review for the saddest hard rock ever. The ride back was essentially the same cramped painful ride as the outgoing trip. To sum it all up, you could just rent a car for less money, and have a much better trip. Even a greyhound would be more cost effective and pleasant a ride. I DO NOT recommend this trip (and I don't think they really have a bus).

Dear fred h We list all the important information about the tour very accurate and precise. There is no sub menus and fine print paragraphs. We feel sorry that you did not take the time to read the description of the tour. Per CDC guidelines we are not required or ever stated that we will check vaccination status of the travelers. That is why we travel in small groups. We believe that traveling with 10 other passenger brings less risk than travelling with 54. Regarding the ride and the bumps on the road- we would love to have smooth and brand new roads but that is out of our reach and we use state roads which are sometimes bad sometimes good and most of the time average. The drivers are strictly monitored by GPS device and they NEVER drive faster than the speed limit. And as last we would love to invite you in better times when this pandemic is behind us to experience some others highly rated tours and the great fleet of vehicles we have.

Terrific Experience
Aug 2021 • Friends
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.

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.

Loving the falls
Oct 2019 • Friends
We had an excellent trip to Niagra from start to finish. The coach was only a little minibus but it had WiFi and sub ports. The drivers were great and stopped for regular comfort breaks. The guide at Niagra was funny, informative and didn’t rush or push but gave clear instruction. All in all I felt it was worthwhile travelling for this trip. I’d advise taking a pillow and blanket so you can sleep overnight.

Very long day
Oct 2019 • Couples
The Niagara Falls are incredible, you don’t need me to tell you that. The journey from New York to the falls takes about seven hours. The vehicle that picked us up was a minibus. It was very cramped, my husband is 5’ 11” and was unable to move for much of the journey. After an 11.30 pm pickup, we arrived very tired and aching despite a couple of quick rest stops where we could stretch our legs. There is a lot of walking too. We covered several miles whilst at the falls. There are plenty places to get snacks and drinks and several benches for the weary. Our tour guide Billy was lovely. A local lad with good humour. The return journey in the minibus was uncomfortable. Despite being very tired it was impossible to sleep due to the discomfort and cramped seating. We paid over £400 for this trip and would have expected a coach, in fact a group picked up before ours had a 56 seater with much wider seats and room to move your legs about. All in all a fantastic destination but a long and uncomfortable journey. Arrived back at our hotel absolutely exhausted.

Dreadful journey
Obviously when we got there the falls etc were amazing . However we couldn’t believe how bad the journey was. A very small minibus, no toilets and no room to sit comfortably. I am 1.65 tall , so by no means the tallest around and totally had my knees bashed against seat in front. I am 22 years old, and thank goodness my dad didn’t Join us on the trip. He is much taller and older obviously. We had to tell driver 20 minutes beforehand if we needed toilet for him to find somewhere. He drove really fast too so we were bouncing up and down all the way and felt really dreadful and couldn’t even sleep.unbelievably bad transport for this day and age.

Excellent tour
Aug 2019 • Friends
We enjoyed this one day tour from NY, with our very patience tour coordinator Daniel, our very good driver Joseph and informative tour guide Billy. The bus was very comfortable and we did not need the Canadian visa. Daniel also had given us freebies like travel pillows, postcards and a memento group photos. Thank you so much for the memorable tour Daniel. God bless and more clients in the future 😁

Niagara falls from NY City - Drive
Apr 2019
We decided to drive down, reached around evening, visited the falls at a stone throw distance from the Hotel. Stayed overnight and experienced the early morning view. I highly recommend the Maid of the Mist as well as the Cave of the Winds. Missed visiting the Candian side, shall make it up the next time for sure.

Great place but a sprinter is not right vehicle for long trip
Jul 2019 • Solo
It is a great place where I will recommend all to visit if you can, it is far enough for one day trip from New York till Niagara Falls, it is a great if they limit all transportation to be in Mercedes Bus because the distance is so long and it is recommended to have a bus with enough space and toilet in it.
