Even on a chilly day, this was so much fun. You get up close and personal to the falls. We did not get nearly as wet as I thought we might. Loved the pink ponchos for breast cancer awareness. Fun fun fun.

Being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we were given pink ponchos to wear. Our guide joked that for Colon Cancer Awareness Month, it might be brown-colored ;) The start of the trip was a beautiful opportunity to take gorgeous photos of the American Falls as we...More

The boat gets you up close to the falls. We went on a rainy cold day so it was more miserable then fun. The view was also bad due to the haze. Today was much better. Defiantly something to do for a sunny day

We took our ride on a stormy day! They took us "up close and personal" to see the falls and rapids! This is a Must Do if you go to Niagara Falls!!! Plus- free poncho included in the price!

Incredible! Because of the type of boat Maid of the Mist uses, we were able to get close to the Canadian Falls! It was breathtaking to be so close. Yes, you will get wet, but it is absolutely worth it!! Once in a lifetime experience.

This is a short boat ride to see the waterfalls closer up. You just ride by American Falls and Bridal Falls but they actually pull into Horseshoe Falls. The amount of mist that comes off this fall is incredible. They give you a cheap pull...More

Of course not to speak much about world famous Maid of mist tour. We took this from US side and was a memorable ride. I have visited this attraction twice and planning to visit again next year.

It is one thing to see the falls from either side, and there is another dimension to the experience of the falls standing right below the falls, taking the shower head on! It is good for all ages. I took the boat from niagara, Ontario...More

It was actually refreshing. We were on the top deck and got a little wetter than my parents on the bottom, but it actually felt good. Just some sprays here and there. It wasn't like a drenching. You will love it!!

I'm not sure, but I would take the tour on the Canada side, or walk across and like the previous post, eat on the Canadian side. The food is terrible at the Top of the Falls Restaurant!
