Oddly enough, the interesting part of this visit is not the one when you actually are behind the fall, as you cannot see but a wall of falling water, but the one when you get out of the tunnel and enjoy a very nice viewpoint over the falls and the river. You may want to skip this attraction if you... More

This was our 2nd trip to Niagara and we are enjoying it much more in the "off" season. The journey behind the falls gives a fun and unique perspective to the falls. I love hearing the roar of the water. It was really cool, but was pricey.

Don't go without your camera. You are likely to get wet on this ride but it is worth it for the memorable photos.

As part of a package this is worth the effort. You really ge a feel for he power of the falls. I don't know that it's worth full price, individually.

There is this platform where you can be right beside the falls, you will get wet for sure when taking pictures. The feeling of seeing multiple rainbows whilst hearing how loud the falls are is so surreal. Good to do either the one at the canada or usa side. Dun think u need to do both. Only this part is...

What great work has been put onto carving the behind the falls tunnels and portals. This is a great way to be really amongst the action of these powerful falls. I just can't visualise the falls being frozen, but what a thrill it would be to see them from this spot. Once again we got wet, but that is what... More

Okay, skip the cheesy cartoon that's supposed to educate you about the formation of the falls. My nieces and nephews would find it boring. Walking on the deck next to the bottom of the falls, and walking behind the falls to observation portholes, though, is worth the price of admission. You really feel the power of the falls inside you... More

This is definitely a must do! The whole experience is just amazing!! You will get soaked, I wouldn't advise to straighten your hair or wear make-up! It all comes off thanks to the falls! Would advice everyone to go

Since I was a kid coming to Canada as a tourist with my family to this most recent trip when I'm here with my twelve-year-old kid and his friends, I've tried just about every way of seeing the falls (including the helicopter). The tunnels remain my favourite. Of course, you don't see much when you're looking out from the portals... More
