It was worth the que and wait to go down behind the falls and was one thing I was recommended to do that was certainly worthwhile.

We visited on April 18 and it was very cold with ice still around the river. The tunnels are cold, damp and windy so dress accordingly. The first view (the one straight ahead behind the plastic panels) is by far the best. You are able to view the falls from different angles and can take photos when the crowds thin... More

Unfortunately due to the snow still around the falls, you couldn't view the observation deck. But we had booked our trip months ago, so couldn't change that due to Mother Nature.

This attraction was ok. I wasn't really that impressed. We were lucky because it was April so not that crowded but I would have been mad if we waited in line to do this. All it is is a tunnel that you walk through and they have windows where you see the water falling in front. The best part was... More

The observation deck is the highlight of this attraction; we went when the ice had melted on the deck but still icy in some areas in the flowing falls - visitors could go out and take in the beautiful view of Horse shoe falls and feel the cool mist on the face, absolutely beautiful – the rest of the tour...

It was cold and the Falls had a lot of ice on it. There are a lot of steps to climb and the tunnels are a little dirty.

My husgand and I did this tour almost 20 years ago when it wasn't so cold so then we were able to really journey behind the falls. There were only 2 areas open during this trip due to the ice/cold. The main viewing area really should have an attendant to answer questions and help move people through. Unfortunately, there was... More

We liked that we were able to view the falls at our own pace and see everything from underneath. We would have liked a little more of a guided tour as a part of it, as it got a little chaotic with some people being very pushy.

Hello. My daughter and I went yesterday and we were disappointed. The bottom portion viewing area, which is where you need to wear the rain jacket for and gives you the experience of the crashing waves and an amazing view is closed in the winter, which only leaves 3 little viewing portals to see a small area of water falling....

Well, I was upset that the Maid of the Mist was not running, but at least I was able to go down into the man-made caves behind the Falls and peek at the huge chunks of ice that were preventing the boats from going into the water. Then I understood why it wasn't safe yet. Even though it is mid-April,... More
