Bridal Veil Falls, Niagara Falls, NY

The Basics

There are several ways to see Bridal Veil Falls: boat tours, helicopter rides, and observation decks all allow up-close perspectives. One of the best places to see Bridal Veil Falls is at Cave of the Winds, in New York, where you descend to the Hurricane Deck, which is within spraying distance of the falls. You can also enjoy Bridal Veil while aboard Hornblower cruises departing from Canada and Maid of the Mist cruises departing from the US, as well as from viewing platforms on Goat Island (in Niagara Falls State Park) and from the Skylon Tower Observation Deck. Helicopter tours offer an aerial perspective on the falls and provide opportunities for impressive photographs.

Going to Niagara? Join Brian's Brigade
Brian's Brigade -charge! Brian was a phenomenal guide - knowledgeable, fun, friendly. This was our first trip and we booked a guided tour because we love to learn the history of the places we visit. Brian was the perfect blend of sharing the rich history and knowing when to just let us soak in the views (pun intended!) While in lines, I had the opportunity to hear other company's guides speak to their groups. Brian blows them away. You'd better give him a raise to keep him. Rick and Janell - from Chicago

Remarkable walking tour

Niagara Falls Night Illumination Tour: American, Bridal and Horseshoe Falls
This walking tour led by a remarkable guide,Marc, was one of the highlights of my stay in Niagara Falls! I cannot say enough good things about the tour. Truly. HOWEVER, Viator needs to be much more clear that this is a fairly rigorous WALKING tour. I found this out the evening before the tour, and my elderly mother was not able to participate. Viator did not respond to my inquiries about a refund. I feel like my mother's ticket was wasted money.

Dynamic & fun Niagara Illumination Tour

Niagara Falls Night Illumination Tour: American, Bridal and Horseshoe Falls
The Niagara Illumination Tour was a memorable event for me and my husband because of Marc our tour guide. Marc made this tour so fun and engaging that we almost forgot how drenched we were from the pouring rain. He told the most interesting facts and stories, and we were laughing all the time. He was so sweet to take photos at the most scenic spots and did them beautifully. These photos happen to be among our favorite mementos from our trip. Thank Marc for inspiring us and allowing us to see the beauty of the falls at night. Mere words cannot describe it’s magnificence. We’re truly enlightened and inspired.

The Three Falls of Niagara

Niagara Falls is not just one waterfall, but rather three separate falls: Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. The largest of the three is Horseshoe Falls, two-thirds of which are located in Ontario. Around 90 percent of the water from the Niagara River flows over Horseshoe Falls.
