    Amazing water falls
    The Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side are amazing. This is a must see on the travel bucket list. Niagara Falls are not the tallest in the world. What makes Niagara Falls so special is it combined height and volume. The crest line of the Canadian Horseshoe falls measures ~ 670 meters or 2,200 feet. These falls have a vertical plunge of 57 meters or 188 ft. During the peak touring hours 168K cubic meters or 6 million cubic feet of water goes over the falls every minute.

    Amazing
    Absolutely amazing whether you see the falls from the American side or the Canadian side. You can hear the water, feel the mist ... it's a place where everyone is happy just to be there. Family friendly. The overlooks that run along the falls are fine so don't worry if you can't get closer (eg via the Maid of the Mist). We arrived in the morning and parking was a little limited.

    Worth every second of the visit
    Best view of Niagara falls. Much better than the view from American side. Now, parking near Niagara falls is very expensive. Almost 30 bucks a day. Fireworks at 10pm was nice to watch and the light show made it more beautiful.

    AWE Inspiring.
    The Horseshoe Falls are an amazing site to behold. It's better on the Canadian side versus the American side. That vertical plunge is 188ft and over 6 million cubic feet of water go over the falls every minute! Once you get close you can feel that constant mist coming up from it. Taking a boat ride up close to the falls is a must, whether you do the Hornblower(CAN) or Maid of the Mist(US). Each depart every 30 minutes and you can walk up and purchase tickets. Also the BEST view of all of Niagara Falls is from the Skylon Tower up above, but that's an additional fee if you're not doing a guided all day tour. But this good for the entire fam, and something that is a lifetime memory.

    Stunning Views with Rainbow 🌈!!!
    It was breathtaking to admire the Horseshoe Falls daily for 5 nights from our hotel at eye level as well as the colourful nightly Illumination of the Falls!! We could feel the powerful mist sprays when we walked from Fallsview Boulevard to Niagara Parkway (15 minutes) to take a closer look at the Horseshoe Falls. We were lucky to see rainbow 🌈 splashed across the Horseshoe Falls 4 days out of the 5 nights. I loved the Journey Behind the Falls better than Voyage to the Falls. Simply feel alive being so close to the powerful splashing of the Horseshoe Falls. The closest view of the Horseshoe Falls is at Table Rock Centre, which is the place you board or alight for the Incline Railway.

The Horseshoe Falls are one of the greatest sights i have ever seen. The sheer power,size and noise are amazing. It is a place you just have to visit if you have the chance.

This is a Great Canadian Landmark. There are many higher waterfalls to be sure. It is the volume of water that makes this so spectacular.

It’s funny that both Niagara Falls Canada and Horseshoe Falls Canada are listed as separate attractions. In fact Horseshoe Falls is one of the Niagara Falls. It is a can’t miss natural wonder and will be perfect for your Insta.

Wonderful site.....be aware Niagara Falls is like Blackpool ...unless thats your thing, and then you'll be fine.
We stayed at the Double Tree, which is lovely, but the area felt a bit edgy at night as there was no one around .......

It's real horseshoe-like. Try to look it from the USA side, from the Canadian site, from Skylon Tower and in the evening.

Horseshoe falls is of course awesome. Table rock visitor center sits on its banks. The views are just stunning from table rock.

We thoroughly enjoyed Horseshoe Falls, photos do not do it justice.
We just enjoyed the view and the sound of the falls from our view point above.
There is an option to take a boat if you really want to get up close, but we were quite satisfied enjoying from a distance.

5/5. This was my second trip to Niagara Falls and this time I got so wet. The lady of the mist approached the fall very closely but it was worth it.

I booked a day tour to Niagara Falls with Viator last minute and it was confirmed immediately. My brother and I had a good time there. The driver/tour guide Rahood was very helpful.
