Niagara Falls - How important is it to book a tour?

Jump to last reply

I apologize if there are some similar posts out there to this. I didn't see any in my quick search. Feel free to redirect me if this is addressed elsewhere.

My husband and I are taking three kids (13, 12, 9) on a quick road trip that includes two nights and one whole day in Niagara Falls (arriving the evening of Sat. 7/9, departing the morning of Mon. 7/11). We are staying in NF, Ontario both nights. My question is, since we really only have one day in Niagara Falls, and knowing it's a Sunday in July, would we be best served by booking a tour that will take us to Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds, or should we just take our chances on seeing them ourselves? My understanding is that we could avoid waiting in lines for tickets if we book a tour, but please correct me if I'm misinformed on this. Since the tours are rather pricey and we tend not to take many tours as a rule, we are leaning toward seeing them on our own, but I'm open to considering a tour if it maximizes our limited time there.

Any recommendations on this would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance.
