    Day 1
    New York - 1000 Islands (from 3/26) or Howe Cavern (Nov-Apr) (504 miles)
    Departing from New York, we head for the 1000 Islands )***. Situated between the U.S. and Canadian border are 1,793 islands on the Saint Lawrence River, where we will have an opportunity to take in a leisure boat cruise along the river (seasonal) which will include unique sights such as the world's smallest international bridge and houses of the rich and famous on their own personal islands. With its clear water and island-dotted landscape, we’ll see why the area is considered the fresh water boating capital of the world. Overnight in upstate New York, night view of the Niagara Falls is not offered.

    For the winter months (Nov 14th-Apr), the tour will take us to Howe Caverns in Upstate NY. Here, our journey will wind us through limestone corridors, cavernous galleries, and under massive boulders to a subterranean riverbed carved over countless millennia. Deep in the cave, solid rock appears fluid: creating strange formations, flowing sheets and dripping stalactites. Mysterious grottos lead off into distant, unexplored passages path twists and turns ever downward to the glassy surface of an underground lake that trails off into the absolute darkness of the cave's Eastern Terminus.

    Standard Hotel: Holiday Inn or equivalent
    Day 2
    Niagara Falls - New York (492 miles)
    This morning, we’ll continue our sightseeing in Niagara Falls, heading to the IMAX Theatre* for a thrilling movie experience in which you’ll witness the sights and sounds of the Falls through the perspective of the daredevils who have tried to conquer it. There are dozens of taller waterfalls in the world, but in terms of sheer volume Niagara Falls is unbeatable: more than a million bathtubs of water plummet over the edge every second! Don’t miss the chance to see the Horseshoe Falls from the world famous Maid of the Mist* boat (Apr - Oct 24); it’s a half hour-long thrill of a lifetime in which you’ll sail through the mist right up to the base of the Falls. Afterwards, We are going to the Power Vista, which is located 4½ miles downstream from Niagara Falls, set amidst the spectacular scenery of the Niagara River Gorge. You will also enjoy the incredible views 350 feet above the Niagara River in the comfortable environs of the glass enclosed walkway or feel the elements on the outdoor observation deck (weather permitting). ($10.00 /Adult,$8.00/kid (under 11) shuttle bus services fee, and special upgrade operation costs.)

    *Special Optional: Maid of the Mist is available from April to Oct 24 (opening date depends on ice condition in the river). From Nov to March, it will be close, we can go to the Old Fort Niagara ($12/Adult,$8/child) instead of Maid of the Mist. The Old Fort Niagara is located at the mouth of the Niagara River. Be sure to catch the short guided tour that explains a lot in a short time. The fact that the old French Castle from 1726 is still standing today is amazing. The history and importance of this fort is a compelling reason to preserve it and the artifacts in the museum were spectacular. If you're a history buff or just like tours of this kind you have to see this.

    *All entrance fee are not included in tour price; see "Exclusions" for cost details.

    ***Itineraries are subject to change so that we can provide you with the best possible experience.***
