You've come to see the falls - well this is it! Walking through the tunnels, seeing the falls from the river's vantage point, feeling its rumble and hearing its might - this is the next best thing to getting on the Maid of the Mist. Great display panels giving you a bit of history of the falls.Totally worth it!

Put on your raincoat (included with the tour) and be prepared to get wet. You take an elevator down to the tunnels, where you have a view of the falls from the backside. Some interesting displays along the way, then head down to the outside where you are standing below the falls. Winds were blowing the mist right in our... More

It was very interesting but it was a chilly day. The lady operating the lift was as personable as a dead fish.

Went there with family and it costed quite a bit to go down there. Apparently, you go to some tunnels and stand behind a curtain of water 38m below ground level. They had signs in the tunnel that is very informative. However, had to wear raincoats which were very difficult to wear.

Yes, visiting the Falls this has to be done. There are some interesting boards along the tunnels telling some of the interesting events that have occured at the Falls but it's real value is in experiencing the noise and power of the falls. You get wet and up really close to the Falls. If visiting Niagara this would be a... More

This to us was well worth a look and it allows you yet another angle to see the falls, even in November!

Although I’m glad I did this excursion, the rest of my family didn’t feel it was worth the price of admission. I was able to get some cool pictures from the base of the Falls, and I enjoyed the walk through the tunnels and reading about facts/stories about the Falls on the wall plaques. However, my wife and kids felt... More

The Journey Behind the Falls is awesome when you think of the power and majesty of Niagara Falls and all that water - just don't go in winter when it is cold and wet. It is better to go in the spring and summer when it is warm and you stay -semi-dry with your free plastic poncho. It is a... More

I mentioned this place in a post about the falls. It is a must see! It is most exciting to stand beside the falls on a platform and feel the thunder of the water travelling over the falls.

Great attraction! You get to take an elevator down behind the falls. There are several tunnels which bring you to the water's edge. You get to learn about the history of the falls and recorded people who have attempted to go over the falls, with or without a barrel! The staff are very friendly and provide you with a raincoat...
