Let's face it. Every company in Niagara Falls is delivering the same tour, to the same world-famous waterfall, in Niagara Falls, New York. We pride ourselves on one simple, yet vital, difference. "We're FUNNER". (if you look up the word "funner" in the dictionary, you'll see a picture of 5 Star Niagara Falls Tours). Our team is comprised of professionals who have a rare combination of humor, knowledge, and personality. That's what we mean by "Funner". Niagara Falls New York has been the domain of the same companies, faces, and approaches for decades. We are the new small business that delivers "Entertainment". Veteran-owned, staffed by dedicated professionals, and the 5-star reviews on our site are well-earned. Perhaps the old faces are frowning at the presence of a new, upstart, and fun-filled company. You can help us grow our approach and our list of satisfied customers. You aren't a number to us, you are not part of a cookie-cutter, and we don't consider our guests to be sheep. Try us and you'll find the meaning of the word "FUNNER". We're new to Niagara Falls, and we'll make your visit something you'll talk about for years to come.
*Please note, your tour may include squirrels, birds, groundhogs, waterfowl and assorted other wildlife.
Although entry to the Niagara Falls State Park is free, there are no docents present to describe the sites and background of the falls. Expect knowledgeable and entertaining commentary from our guides who enjoy spending their days touring the New York area when you take a Niagara Falls trip with us.
Depending on the weather and the number of guests, trip lengths may change. Despite 5 Star Niagara Falls Tours' best efforts, all tours are open to amendment without prior notification. Most tours are a combination of enjoying an attraction (Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds) along with walking up to 30 minutes on a short trip around the park to see the sights available. Many of our guides are over 50, so we share concerns about excessive walking.
Damaged personal belongings are not our responsibility.
