The completeness of night view on certain summer evenings may be limited or not available due to late sunset time and US Federal Government regulations on driving hours.

Due to the cold weather and frozen road since November, Secret Caverns may be closed on some departure date.

Features about Niagara Jet Boat Adventures:
1. You won't get wet during the entire journey. You'll experience warmth and comfort inside the boat even during the lowest temperatures outside. This ride is safe and exciting! It's suited for all people.
2. The state-of-the-art watercraft are technically advanced and built specifically for the Niagara River with different viewing areas to experience the magic of the Niagara River rapids.
3. The jet boat's engine is similar to an aircraft as they both use a jet engine as a driving force so they can handle the fast churning waters of the Niagara River's middle and lower reaches. This is truly a unique sensory experience. Niagara Jet Boat Adventures consistently receives positive reviews from its customers.

      Good option!

      En términos generales el tour es una buena alternativa para conocer las cataratas del Niágara y hacer un corto recorrido por algunos lugares turísticos de Washington y Filadelfia. Los buses no son cómodos pero, cómo se hacen paradas cada do...s horas, los viajes se hacen soportables. Mai, nuestro guía, es un profesional en todo el sentido y realizó un excelente trabajo.

      Not the best experience

      Honestly I expected more of this tour. We stayed at 2 hotels, one of them was Red roof Plus,when we got to the hotel, we found out that our assigned room was uncleaned, the bed was undone and the bathrooms were dirty. On the other side, t...he bus driver was very rude, he didn't wan't to help us putting ur luggage inside the car, they were very heavy and he just stood there watching us having trouble to put them on the bus. The bus smelled like cigarette a lot! When we got to Philadelphia we just looked from far away the Independence hall and from the outside the Liberty bell, they shouldn't include Philadelphia in the tour because being there for 5 minutes and seeing places from far away is not exactly what we expected. The only positive things I can mention is that the tour guide was a nice persona, althoug there were times he started explaineng things about the places we were at when the group was incomplete because they were still getting off of the bus, and also the places they took us to eat were nice. That's it. Read full review

      Amazing, Cheap, Organized and Complete!

      We did the 3 day bus tour to Washington DC, Philadelphia and Niagara Falls. (No visa needed to Canada as you only visit United States side). I want to say that after reading reviews I went already thinking that we were going to have any pr...oblem, but they prove me wrong! Everything was perfect, always on time and very well organized and explained. We arrived half an hour before and the guides where already there organizing everything. We were very very lucky as our guide Lidy is amazing, she speaks perfectly English and she is very informed about every place we were visiting so she was explaining everything to us very well. The driver was very good, even the weather was very bad he managed to drive super safe and without any problems. The Niagara Falls, even frozen, were amazing! Washington spectacular and the hotels where we stopped and the buffets where we went to have lunch and dinner were very good. The price is amazing and then you need to pay for the places you want to visit (Madame Tussauds, Buffet to lunch/dinner, Museums...) but even that, the total price of the trip is super cheap and worth it! If you are really having doubts, it is definitely nothing to think about, it is cheap, you visit amazing places and you won't have any issues! It has been a pleasure and I would definitely repeat! Thank you very much! Read full review
