Great Experience!
Oct 2021
We did this so we could actually experience being behind the falls. They take you down in an elevator and we walk down a long hall (with LOTS of interesting information along the walls) and there are two "portals" where you can actually see the falls flowing down right there! Then there is a deck which is right beside the northern end of Horseshoe Falls and it is a great place to take photos and experience again, close up, the power of the falls. We stayed a while to look down and watch to see how far in the "Maid of the Mist" boat went into the maelstrom of the falls pool.

It was amazing to experience nature and creation at its best. It’s truly breathtaking and an experience that would highly recommend to anyone that wants to feel the power and watch up close the falls pressure and power.

Amazing Experience 👍🏻

Amazing to be up close with the falls, having the ability to take my time and enjoy the experience was a big plus for me. The boat tours get the same distance from the falls but are there momentarily before they move on - not ideal. Both behind the falls and the basin viewpoint were great experiences, the poncho was a must. YOU WILL GET VERY WET!!

Just ok

For the price we expected more. You cannot see anything out of the lookouts bc of the volume of water. The mist was excessive due to it raining so you couldn't see behind them at all. Seems overpriced for what you see considering other activities

We decided to do this on the spur of the moment. A must do. Very reasonably priced! Very informative and great view of the falls.

Good but expensive.
Oct 2021
In the time of Covid walked up and got tickets straight away. The best part was the observation deck at the foot of the falls, where you get to experience the full power of the falls from up close. You are provided with ponchos - otherwise you'd get soaked. There are 2 tunnels behind the falls, but all you see are sheets of water.

If you are short on time I wouldn't bother as it's expensive for what you get.

Powerful but expensive
Sep 2021
We enjoyed our visit to the Journey Behind the Falls, but it is expensive for what you get. The tickets were easily available and no crowds thanks to Covid, so we walked up, bought tickets, and headed right to the elevator down to the experience. Overall it took us about 30 minutes to walk through and enjoy the tunnels and viewing deck (you could take as long as you wanted once down there).

It was interesting to be in the tunnel behind the falls. The view portals out to the falls were loud, but not visually impressive (just a sheet of white). The end of the experience has you out on a viewing deck, which gets you quite close to the edge of Horseshoe Falls. You'll get wet (a poncho is provided as part of the experience) but the experience and pictures are impressive. We've experienced several different near the falls sites, and I'd said the Maid of the Mist + the walk up to the Crow's Nest afterward is probably the best bang for your buck. The Cave of the Winds is also slightly better than Journey Behind the Falls in my opinion, but they have similarities, so I'd choose one of them based on which side of the border I was on.

Not worth the money or time.

It was hard to find. There are 2 places in the tunnel where you can stand behind the falls. It was ok, but not nearly as great as I thought it would be. Total waste of time.

Great walk through a tunnel behind part of horseshoe falls. Nice viewing gallery where you can get soaked in the mist to your fill
