Owner description: 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.

This is a must-do when at Niagara Falls -- but save it for last, 'cause afteward, everything else will be a letdown. You actually get to walk right up to one of the Falls, explore and watch the water rush over the rocks, and feel the spray, too. You can even go up on the Hurricane Deck and stand right up next to the fall, feel the water pounding on you. It's almost a spiritual experience, just incredible. Just make sure to roll up your pantlegs... no, higher... higher than that, as high as they'll go. I rolled mine up to my knees, and they still got soaked. :)

Me and my friends took gobus tour from nyc to DC, phili and niagara. It's a great tour except that they dint include cave of the winds in package and they included thousand islands. Based on all the reviews about cave of the winds, we requested tour operator to change to cave of the winds and without a doubt it was the most amazing experience. Everyone had so much fun getting so close to falls and getting all wet. Be careful though becoz it can really hurt you too.

It was very interesting and the views were breathtaking. It it a self guided tour. Make sure you wear the poncho because the seagulls will get you ! The line was pretty long but went by pretty fast. It was a very crowded tour though. Definatly worth the 11 bucks overall. You get a pair of sandals and a poncho included with tour price.

You get some sort of rush when you get into the cave. Yes, the ferry is crowded. Get over it. Once you get to the cave, you will be glad you did. I really wanted to go here after watching "Bruce Almighty" when Jim Carrey's character is on the Maid of the Mist. I thought that looked gorgeous, so off we went. I'm so glad we did. The water is beautiful and it looks so much different with a worm's eye perspective down there.

You will get wet!! This is the best part of Niagara Falls!! You will get to walk right next to the falls while the water rushes over you feet and legs. This is a must do while visiting!
