Tunnel with two viewing points. Take an elevator down 38 meters i believe to a viewing deck then there is a concrete tunnel to walk down to two viewing points. Good to see once but wouldn't go again

It was very neat to see behind the falls, but it wasn't as much fun as I had wished it would have been. Very crowded and very wet.

The falls no doubt are beautiful. I just have a hard time paying a lot of money for things like this. There is no need to charge soo much. The platform beside the falls is great, The tunnels were small crowded and dirty, and all you see is a small hole behind the falls. But again the Falls are beautiful.

I took this tour along right after the Hornblower Cruise and enjoyed the cruise better, we were pressed for time and only got to see these two attractions while at Niagara, Ontario. I was excited to see this attraction after learning that you could actually get to go behind the falls. I wasn't sure what to expect and it was... More

I really liked the observation decks near the base of the falls. The views through the portals behind the falls were ok but we spent more time on the decks. Pretty cool!

Go early in the morning and you can have the place to yourself with no waiting. We enjoyed every minute and did not get soaked like on Maid of the Mist or the Hornblower boat trips. : ) Use the restroom before you go on the elevator - there is not one once you are "behind the falls!" Have fun!

Great time on the viewing platform getting sprayed and enjoying seeing the falls so close up. I would not bother waiting in lines to see the smaller tunnels, you just see a wall of water but it wasn't really worth the wait. The platform was excellent though - cheaper than the boat tour and you get to stay and enjoy... More

it's about 15 dollars an adult. Only one good view of the falls that takes you about 130 ft down. big open area, great for pictures, but DONT waste your time in the tunnels for the port holes. 30-45 minute wait to look at the mist from the falls. there are 2 port holes, and they are exactly the same....
