This was part of our package tour and it was really interesting and a great experience. The history of Niagara was very cool. The tunnels were fun and the whole experience thing was one of the best features of our tour. Expect to get wet but you are given a poncho for this phase which shows just how powerful it... More

We were able to get REALLY close to the fall. The tunnels through which we passed had concise informative panels which were interesting.

My parents took me and my four siblings to Journey Behind the Falls in the 1980s, and the picture of the seven of us in our matching yellow rain slickers is one of the most special from my childhood. Bringing my own children to this memorable attraction was always on my To-Do list, and I was delighted to accomplish that... More

There are multiple vantage points from which to enjoy Niagara Falls and this is one of them. The others include Hornblower/Maid of the Mist, visitor center/Goat Island and Journey Behind are all terrific and each is different. Try to see as many as you can as the different views are striking.

This was one of the stops on our tour of Niagara Falls. Because our tour was arranged ahead of time, we really did not have much of a wait (except for the elevator down with other people in our group). After walking through a narrow tunnel, we arrived at the first outdoor observation deck. It was breathtaking. Just to be... More

If you go to the falls you fill surely end up here. I'll say this if you go down the tunnel and one of the 2 spots has a shorter line go to that one and skip the other. Both are the same. The observation deck is a killer view.

It's a great attraction that everybody should do. It's cheap, simple and wetting is minimal. Just buy a better quality raincoat in the gift shop before going because the one given at the attraction is very thin.

It didn't meet our expectations, we thought it would be more spectacular. A bit overpriced and way to crowded. They should limit the amount of people.

Last visit we did all the American Side attractions, so I had already decided this time we would go Canadian...my teenage boys loved walking behind the falls and watching the boats and falls from the viewing overlook. We got a great family picture standing on the upper level looking out, right below is a banner, JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS that... More
