Tour to Niagara Falls from Hotel in Buffalo

Can anyone recommend a tour company for a day trip to the Falls that would pick us up from our Hotel in Buffalo and drop us back.

Or any other suggestions for us to see the Falls.

Thanks.

You could take NFTA bus 40 for $2/person each way. The trip takes about an hour. It's a public bus and not a tour, but it would allow you to explore the falls at your leisure.

The bus to the falls leaves from the downtown transportation center (NFTA bus terminal)...schedule is online. There are two busses...make sure you get the direct express bus that goes via the Thruway, unless you want the milk run local bus that pokes down Niagara Falls Boulevard (not scenic like it sounds) and takes forever.

Will it take you to the Canadian side?

The public (NFTA) bus will not. But it will leave you within walking distance of the Rainbow Bridge, which you can walk across. Most of the major tourist sites on the Canadian side are within walking distance, or you can take the local WEGO buses once you've crossed.

Hi geastburn;

There is no public transit available to cross the bridge in Niagara Falls. If crossing the Rainbow Bridge on foot, be sure to bring your camera. The views are breathtaking !

Best Regards

What time of year are you talking about? NF is a warm weather destination and many activities are shut from end Oct until some time in April. Also - in so little time you won;t have time to see many attractions.

I am talking about travel in May 2018, last week. Also the purpose of my visit to Buffalo is to see Niagara Falls. So just placed around the falls, Rainbow Bridge, Cave of Winds and the Falls itself (US side) would be enough this time.

Suggest a tour which can be taken from hotel in Buffalo for 4 to 5 hrs and drops us back.

Am not sure if these places can be done on own too.

Thanks.
