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.

Best experience in a 7 week holiday!

OK, this was cool. Our family of 6 was not sure whether we should do this or not, as some of them are not always that brave. In the end, this was probably the highlight of a... read more

OK, this was cool. Our family of 6 was not sure whether we should do this or not, as some of them are not always that brave. In the end, this was probably the highlight of a massive holiday. You are able to get really quite close to the falls, wearing rain-jackets - but still getting soaked, and experience an... More

This was part of our tour and definitely worth doing. We were very close to the American falls and even saw the snow which is still there in mid May! The observation tower allows for great photos. The restaurant is expensive and the service was rubbish with no explanations as to the fact you order from one line and collect... More

It is well worth the visit to walk behind the falls and hear it roar, has a spot to stop behind the falls and watch it as it roars by.

This was a fun activity, watch out and keep your hood up because the gulls will poop on you. You will get pretty wet as well.

If you're going to the Falls definitely stop by. It's worth the couple bucks to see the Falls in another way. Make sure you take a picture at the caves, you'll be happy you did! Make sure not to slip, the decks are really wet!

This attraction is not available and will not be available for another two weeks. The wooden walkway was partly destroyed and you will not be able to walk on until after memorial day.

Its not a cave, its a trail near one of the falls. The price is 7$ for adults, right now only operational on weekends till 8:30-9pm. We enjoyed this a lot, didnot take much of a time and the experience was amazing - misty water splashing very close. Its also a breeding season for Seagulls so we saw millions of... More

Really nice tour. Get to see the falls from underneath in all its splendor. Get wet and enjoy it. Really fun for kids. Great caves in themselves. Really interesting.
