The Best 3 Niagara Falls Bus Tours from NYC


Two of New York State’s most exciting attractions are New York City and Niagara Falls. However, if you’re hoping to see both on your trip to the Big Apple, it’s worth noting that New York is certainly no small state and getting from Manhattan to Niagara is a bit of a trek.

Opting to take a bus tour from New York City to Niagara Falls, though, can make getting between the two locales convenient, easy and affordable — with no need to rent a car or navigate the state’s busy highways on your own. Check out our top three Niagara Falls bus tours from New York City, for the best options for your money.
