Was really looking forward to going behind the falls, but was a bit disappointed as it wasn't a tour, just a couple of tunnels with a couple of port holes so you can see the water, there is one part where you can go outside and see more of the falls.

This trip doesn't take long but it brings into reality the power of this natural phenomenon. They give you plastic capes but you still get wet and that is all part of the fun...

We arrived as a tour group was leaving so it was a bit tight and busy.. The experience behind the falls was amazing, there are portals behind the falls where you can see the powerful rush of the water coming down. It was extremely cold and wet, we where issued with raincoats.. Overall the experience and the view was well... More

It was a great experience, that definitely brought the power of the falls into a better perspective. It was really neat to see and hear the falls so up close!

Pretty cool little adventure behind the falls. There was a bit of a wait but not that bad. There are some neat stories on the wall to read and being that close to the falls is just great. Definetly recommend the experience when in Niagara Falls.

You take an elevator down, then walk down beside the Canadian Falls. The power of the water is tremedous. No wonder so many people died trying to ride the Falls.

We got here for when it opened (9am) and it was very quiet. It's around $16 each to journey behind the falls and although it only takes half an hour from start to finish it's worth it for the unique view. They provide rain macs but we were still drenched by the end of it! It's tricky to take pics... More

Simple and good experience going behind the falls. Perfect for taking amazing photos. Suitable for all ages. A couple of stairs but just to get outside. Great to do during the day when it is hot.

This is simply an awesome experience that you must do if you are visiting Niagara. Lot of good history to read posted on the walls as you make your way through the tunnels. My one suggestion would be to go before the summer vacation really gets going. Made the mistake of visiting one time in August and the place is... More

Okay, 2nd time here but the first was in the late 1980's. Yes you walk down tunnels and it is a portal cut in the wall that you are actually "behind the falls" with the rushing water in front of you. That is not the "best" part. You do get to go outside right next tot eh falls as the... More
