“We Were on boat under the falls”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

They put the lights on at night just as you see in pictures. And for day trip we had boat ride under the falls and the water splash really heavily to us !! (That is why we wore raincoats). It was amazing and cool. The view from Canada side is better than US, that is what they said .

“A Must See”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Awe inspiring. Didn't have to wait long in queue at all and was able to stand outside to feel the full force (if you know what I mean) of the falls.

A couple of suggestions. When you get given the blue ponchos tie them beween your legs if possible as the wind whips them up and if bring a waterproof cover for your camera .

Great Fun :o)

“Powerful sound!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Ah…the rumble! What a sound! Niagara Falls is great to visit any time of the year. Most excursions do close for the winter, but the view is still spectacular. A must to see the falls during the day and also at night with the lights. Be sure to bring an umbrella or a raincoat since the mist will wet you in seconds.
You can almost see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!!! Don’t miss it!

“The Falls is Always Tremendous”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Sometimes as a local we take things like this for granted, but when you visit the falls and take the view in, it is really quite incredible. If you can, get a hotel room with a view of the falls, it makes your visit even nicer. There are many ways to check out the falls, from the boat tours, to walking tours, and hotel or restaurant views. Niagara Falls Canada, offers the best views, and always draws people, as the view is not only lovely, but there is much to do and see in the area, and the town has invested a lot of money into the area to make your visit even more special. The roar of the falls is incredible and the view impressive, and it's especially nice if you get to see the rainbow on a sunny day. Lots of restaurants, shops and live entertainment in town. Plan a visit, even if you live nearby!

“No words are enough”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The sheer power of nature makes this a sight not to be missed. I was too late for the Maid of the Mist experience, but just standing alongside and feeling the rumble of all those gallons/litres of water was remarkable.
