We had taken this boat tour during our visit to Niagara and we enjoyed a lot. This is a must do activity while you are touring this part of the world.

What a great memory! The five kids and us (parental units) loved this boat ride, just be prepared to get wet from the mist that is more like rain :-) It was a great way to see the falls from a different vantage point.

This is a MUST-GO place in Niagara. I didn't expect that the boat trip is that fun!!! The Fall is really amazing, and you could see rainbows all the time. 10/10

Maid of the Mist is an experience of a lifetime. It is well organized. Prices are 18$ for adults and 12$ for kids. Really the highlight of our Niagara trip! A breathtaking experience.

The day we visited the falls was a rainy, cold day. I was afraid that we would freeze but went ahead anyway. We had a blast! It was chilly, but they give you rain ponchos which keep all but your feet dry and block the...More

This was such a nice tour. A couple of tips, Everyone heads to the top level of the boat, don't be afraid to stay on the lower level. It is just as spectacular, you don't get as wet, and it's less crowded. Also, when the...More

Hi, do we get to choose the seat in Maid of the Mist boat? Is there a recommendation on which side of the boat to sit? Lower or Upper deck?

I don't recall any seats. It is a first come, first serve deal. You can choose to lower or upper deck. We were on the top deck and had a great time. We all decided that next time we would be on the lower deck.

There are no pets allowed on the Maid of the Mist, however, as another review mentioned, if the dog is a registered therapy dog, I believe they have to allow it. You could call and check, but their policy is "no pets".
We are traveling with my grandparents--who are pretty mobile, in their 80s. Do you think this tour will be okay for them?

Thank you for your question. We have ramps and elevators throughout the facility. If your grandparents do not have any mobility issues they should not have any difficulty in getting to the boat. It is about a 5 minute... More
