We went with a tour, but I recommend doing it on your own. We went on a Saturday and I would not do that again, the lines are very long. I wasn't sure if it would really be worth it, but it definitely was!

Being on the maid of the mist and going down into the horseshoe falls was mind blowing. DARIN told us exactly where to stand to get the best view and the best photos. He's sensational.

Enjoyed the mist while on the ferry. The ferry takes you close to the falls where one can feel the power and force of the water while it falls.
