The one thing you must do at Niagara Falls

I had heard a lot about how beautiful Niagara falls are and how just one look of them can leave the spectator mesmerized and spellbound at the same time. This had made me add Niagara to my bucket list and I eagerly waited for the dream to come true. It was when we planned a trip to New York and Niagara that I lived this dream to the fullest.

As beautiful as the view is(which you would see in the pictures), there is one thing that I want to share with you that you should never miss if you are going to visit Niagara falls and the reason being- it seriously makes the experience exponentially amazing. I am not kidding! And this is not hidden secret – but often overlooked.

I am talking about the Maid of the Mists Tour. We bought the tickets for mere $14 per person, but after taking the tour, I can say it is worth a lot more. Because the memories that we took back from there are so wonderful and still so fresh(I am telling you it was so beautiful, it felt that I could spend my entire life there just looking at the Niagara falls).

Our experience of the Maid of the Mists Tour:

So preparing up for the Maid of the Mists Tour goes this way – We were given our tickets and ponchos for all three of us and we the were in the long queue to go to the elevators and get a Bird’s eye view of the majestic Niagara falls.

Everyone in the queue seemed so excited and so were we, not to forget Ameeksha, who was(at least I feel that), the most excited – as if she had been really waiting for it(she was(9 months old then!). She looks so cute with the poncho!

So we finally took the elevators, went up to the viewing area and was left gaping. Yes that’s true-it was heavenly. Beautiful as if just out from a fairytale! We took some amazing pictures there and then headed for the tour-having no idea how a simple boat tour can create such a huge place in my heart.

We were so drenched, it was like we were in a hurricane. But it was so worth it, want to know the reason. This is the view that we got:

Does this not look like a dream? Straight out of the fairytale right. It was worth every penny that we spent on the tour.

I would recommend the Maid of the Mists Tour to anyone heading to Β the Niagara Falls!

Have any such amazing experience at Niagara falls, let us know in the comments below!



  1. I am sure Ameeksha was very excited and the Poncho for sure looked cute on her πŸ™‚ …I really enjoyed your fabulous pictures – You managed to get real good ones indeed !!..

  2. We did the Hornblower from the Canada side and had a lot of fun. I actually think I liked the Cave of the Wind experience even better. The hurricane deck is named that for a reason.

    • I have heard that the view from Canada is much more amazing. I am sure you must’ve enjoyed it I would love to go again, this time from the Canada side and try out the Cave of the Wind.. Thanks for adding to my bucket list…

  3. I lived in US for two years but didn’t get a chance to visit the Niagara Falls. I have heard great things about the Maid and the Mists tour and glad to know that you all had a fantastic time πŸ™‚
