This is an absolute must. You have unparalleled closeness to the falls. Fun for all - families, romance, etc.

I liked being behind the falls but I was hoping for more than a couple of port holes to look through. Its kind of expensive for the view.

This was a really neat tour. Be advised they do not allow strollers! I wished they had told us that from the start instead of waiting until we were underground, I could have brought the carrier. The tour takes you behind the falls and down into tunnels. It shows the history behind the falls as well. Defiantly well worth it... More

A total waste of time, standing in a damp tunnel, in line 3 people wide, for about 30 mins to look out through a small space at the back of the falls. Enjoy the falls from the boats or above ground and spend the money in the gift shop instead.

The tunnel has two portals behind the falls. You see massive amounts of water passing by. The tunnel is full of history signs. The tunnels are light and well lite. The floor is wet and the stairs to the viewing platform are slippery but very worth the trip. It could be crowded. You go at your own pace.

Was very pricey and crowded. You are literally treated like cattle and herded along at certain spots. The poncho they give you has less coverage than a trash bag.

You take a lift down approximately 150 feet. You can then explore a couple of tunnels which take you behind the falls. There is a steel barricade at the end of the tunnel so you can't get too close but you can still get wet. There is an observation platform where you can get fairly close to the falls themselves.

Was able to go behind and along side the Horseshoe Waterfall. It was beautiful. The floors were slippery, so you have to watch your step. Took some of my best pictures on this tour! Take time to read the posters about the history of the tunnels an falls, very interesting.

It's nice to stand closer to the falls, feeling the mist and to hear it. But the whole part truly behind the falls aren't interesting at all. Everything you see, is white water falling down just in frontof the window. So,every dollar you pay,you spend for the platform down at the falls... the view from behind the falls isn't spectacular...

I was a little disappointed by the half hour wait to get to the elevator down and again on the way back up. You would not want to be claustrophobic. However the view was definitely worth it, not only from the portholes but out at the side of the falls where you do get wet from the spray. I really... More
