I was on vacation in Niagara in June 2004. One of the best vacations I have ever had. What a magnificent site the falls are. The Canadian side is much more spectacular than the U.S. Don't be tempted by the tour operators trying to sell tour packages. The best value for money I have ever had was a day adventure pass. we bought this at the bus station near the falls for $34.95 canadian. It included, maid of the mist, journey behind the falls, white water walk, whirlpool aerocar, the butterfly conseratory, unlimited use of the people mover (bus) & incline railway. It also included lots of money off offers to other attractions. You can do everything at your own pace not herded around on coach tour. Truly excellent value for money.
