Description of New York to Niagara Falls tour, 3 days

Featuring one of the great natural wonders of the world, the gorgeous wine country of the Finger Lakes and majestic mountain scenery in every direction, this three-day USA tour is a perfect introduction to what makes upstate New York so very special.

You’ll depart from the Big Apple itself, heading toward the Delaware Water Gap that carves its way through the mighty Appalachian Mountains. After a brief pause to goggle at the views in the Pocono Mountains, you’ll arrive at your destination: Niagara Falls.

Comprising the Horseshoe Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the American Falls, Niagara Falls is one of the largest waterfalls in North America, and a truly impressive sight. It’s also a very impressive sound – you can hear the power of this awesome natural marvel from some way off. You can enjoy a stunning illuminated view of the falls from the Canadian side, across the Rainbow Bridge.

Day two begins with a must-do activity here, the ‘Maid of the Mist’ tour, which takes you right up close to the falls so that you’ll be deafened by the thunderous roar, and drenched by the spray. Afterwards, it’s on to the beautiful wine country of Finger Lakes, and Seneca Falls, a town so charming that some believe it was the inspiration for Frank Capra’s ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’.

Finally you’ll return to New York, stopping, of course, for some last-minute outlet shopping. You can’t come to New York without snapping up a few bargains, after all.

Responsible tourism

New York to Niagara Falls tour, 3 days

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travellers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travellers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whatever we can.

We are proud supporters of Bay Area Wilderness Training (www.bawt.org) a charity based in Oakland California which works to connect disadvantaged children in the local urban area with the great outdoors. Their work helps to provide these young people with life changing experiences which they can
apply to everyday life. Everyone booking with Grand American Adventures has the option to donate £1/$1/€1 to support this well-deserved charity and we will match this donation.

Whenever possible, we use local accommodation and activity providers. We also shop locally for groceries, eat in small family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit.
