TakeTours Announces Maid of the Mist End of Season Specials

October 10, 2013

News, 2013

Maid of the Mist’s last day of operations for 2013 will be October 24th. TakeTours is offering Niagara Falls tour specials to wrap up the season.

Tourists visiting Niagara Falls only have a limited time to visit the legendary Maid of the Mist boat on either side of the U.S./Canadian border. On October 24, 2013, this attraction will once again be ceasing operations for the winter season and will not return until April 2014. TakeTours.com is offering Niagara Falls tours at end-of-season discounts for those who would like to wrap up the 2013 travel season under one of the world’s most famous waterfalls.

2014 will bring some dramatic changes to an institution that has been servicing the Niagara area for more than a century. For 150 years, Maid of the Mist has run boats from both the Canadian and American sides of the falls; starting in 2014, the Canadian half of the business will now be operated by Hornblower Niagara Cruises, an American company that also operates Statue of Liberty cruises in New York and Alcatraz Island cruises in San Francisco. Beginning in 2014, tours on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls will no longer be operated under the “Maid of the Mist” name. Currently, the new owners are holding a contest to decide the names of the two new catamarans that will be taking passengers into the falls. The “Maid of the Mist” will continue to operate as usual on the American side.

With so many changes on the horizon, TakeTours is offering last-minute travelers a chance to ride the Maid of the Mist before the season ends. East-Coast vacation packages are up to 10% off in this end-of-season sale. Niagara Falls tours from New York on TakeTours.com start at only $108 per person, and Niagara Falls tours from Boston start at $165. Guests are encouraged to take this opportunity before winter hits the American Northeast. For more information, please visit http://www.TakeTours.com.
