This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

It was drizzling slightly on that day. I was one of the first few in the line and did not have to queue. Up close and personal and a truly amazing experience!

There was a long wait for this attraction but it was totally worth it. First you go down the elevator to the bottom of the Falls, then you can climb up a series of staircases until you are directly next to the powerful Falls. It is truly incredible to feel the strength of nature.
