The thunder of the Falls, the placards telling you all the history of the Falls, the little cut out stands behind the falls, standing in the spray next to the falls, all made this a definite top attraction.

This is a little self-guided tour underneath the Falls. There are two tunnels that take you out to an area very close to the actual water fall itself. The tunnels have periodic stops to detail and provide information regarding the falls, the history, and the construction of the tunnels themselves. The end of each tunnel brings you as close as...

There are many things we wouldn't know unless we took this tour. Highly recommend the 4 tour pass with free 48 hr. bus pass and add coupons. We used quite a few!

A day-trip to Niagara Falls from New York was worth the very early start. We were greeted a the airport and taken straight to the falls. Everywhere we went, we managed to have very little waiting time. The queues of people waiting as we were leaving were large. The plastic waterproof provided saved us from a drenching.

My friends and I went on this journey behind the falls and were delighted with the experience. It is wild and wet and very noisy and you get the thrill of seeing the Falls up close and personal. It's well worth the price to be this close to the water.

It is short and sweet but the history of it all is simply amazing so worth the money and I must say I had to buy the pictures. The tunnels and the landing are incredible.

I read multiple reviews before I did the journey behind the falls. Many people said they were disappointed. I was blown away. Take it for what it is. Breathtaking. To be so close to the falls on the lookout deck is amazing. To hear the noise of the water and to feel the wind on your face. My husband and... More

We expected to actually see behind the falls. You just walk down tunnels and at about 10 feet from the opening you stop and just see water - like it is raining extremely hard. The outside part was really the best part-right next to the falls.

Try and do this on not such a windy day. The viewing point below offers spectacular views of the falls as they crash down the slope. Absolutely stunning experience, especially the underground tunnel, which takes you behind the falls. You can hear just how powerful they are, crashing and thundering noises all around make this a fantastic sensory experience. The... More

Having chosen this over the white water walk ,I wished I had chosen the walk alongside the rapids.The tunnels behind the falls take you to two viewpoints , with a third outside viewing area which is quite close.A good place for photographs!
