The American Falls is part of the three waterfalls that make up the Niagara Falls. It lets visitors enjoy an exhilarating experience of its beautiful surroundings and fascinating history.
The group of eleven roughly north-south, narrow and long lakes in Central NYC is known as Finger Lakes. These lakes are suggested to be visited in the summer season to enjoy water rides.
A small island in the Niagara River between Horseshoe Falls and Bridal Veil Falls is known as Goat Island. It is one of the most visited islands located in New York City.
Luna Island is a small island between Bridal Veil Falls and the American Falls. It offers an awe-inspiring view of the Falls. This island must be visited and is also worth the small trek descending the hill. It looks amazing to overlook the summer coming and also has best scenic and picturesque spots.
Montour Falls is the southern gateway to the Finger Lakes Region. It is noted for its natural and historic beauty that is enhanced due to the surrounded hills standing 1,000 feet tall. It is the focal point for natural glens that radiate from its borders, with more of beautiful waterfalls.
For over 75 years, visitors from across the globe come to Niagara Falls, They have been able to witness the impressive nighttime illumination of the American and Horseshoe falls. Every season visitors get to experience the autumn in a new way. Complete night-view of Niagara Falls on some summer evenings might be limited or not available because of the late sunset time and the US Federal Government rules on the driving hours.
Seneca Lake is the largest and deepest lake in the state of New York. Watkins Glen village is situated on the south end of the lake, and there are more than 50 wineries around the lake because of the unique microclimate created by the presence of the lake.
The Village located outside the Watkins Glen is known as Watkins Glen State Park. It is located in the region of Finger Lakes. The park remains open for public throughout the year.

I personally wanted to see two of the most beautiful places of the United States, but I did not want to spend too much time. This is where golden bus tours come in, at a price of only $297 I was able to enjoy a 2 day tour of New York to Niagara Falls, I saw the Finger Lakes and did a bit of sightseeing.
I along with my wife and 2 children went on this tour as part of our vacation trip. It was a quite fascinating tour. We always wanted to witness the great Niagara Falls and GoldenBusTours provided us a wonderful opportunity to explore Niagara Falls and Finger Lakes. I literally enjoyed this tour and would like to take another tour soon with Golden Bus Tours. Thumbs Up!
I have always wanted to see Niagara Falls and this summer I intended to gift my wife and myself this one very well deserved tour. Although I had saved for it I was worried about the expenses but let me tell you, when I booked the tour with GoldenBusTours I exhaled a huge sigh of relief. The company gave me such affordable rates that I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams. I’m glad I chose GoldenBusTours for my tour. Definitely traveling with them again.
We flew to witness the great Niagara Falls and then to different places. It was our honeymoon, a perfect package. We went to Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls, The Crossing Outlet and many other places that we totally enjoyed. I have recommended this plan to my colleagues.
A vacation time in India and we were visiting the U.S. for the 3rd time. We booked this bus tour package so that it is comfortable, timely and affordable. This was a 2 day package to the world’s best Niagara Falls. Lovely the weather was clear to take photos.
There are plenty of reasons to fall in love with Niagara Falls and the beautiful spots located in the premises. You’d also fall in love with this place. Thumbs up!
We recently visited New York and took your 2 Day escorted tour to Niagara Falls and Finger Lake. We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the experience. Our guide was Marcus and our driver Jason .Marcus was so informative and really made sure that everyone was well taken care of. Jason is an absolute saint and took the traffic chaos coming back into New York City with such patience and good humor.
I and my girlfriend boarded on this tour a last week and it was well executed tour. Although it was just 2 days but we had an amazing trip because we got to see so much in this short period. I feel like we have had less time but the tour was executed properly on time. GoldenBusTours is a good company because it is very well affordable and gives you the chance of traveling with comfort and see sights at your own leisure. Definitely recommended!
Visiting Niagara Falls was my dream and I had planned this tour in advance. The services of GoldenBusTours were excellent and I found the tour pretty affordable as well. The rates given by GoldenBusTours were very reasonable and the overall services were also excellent. The company is doing a great job
