This was an interesting look into the history of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Quick and easy in the off season. My only issue was the young girl not letting me take my fresh coffee with me. It’s seemed I was singled out because...More

This is not a tour for you if you are not keen on enclosed spaces or with crowds. The tunnels behind the falls a tight and lead to two viewing windows directly behind the falls. It is impressive seeing a wall of white water along...More

Definitely overrated for sure, they need a better system to chanel people through. You stand in line forever and once you get inside, you are truly expecting more. It’s cool to see but shouldn’t be in your top to do list 😢

Got a chance to walk behind the falls. You can see the waterfall in such a near distance. A must walk.

I would say the journey behind the falls is an experience that everybody should do but it could be missed. In the summer when I have gone, the wait times are extremely long. The stories of how the tunnels and elevator were made was interesting...More

Plan to get very wet. Unique view of the falls. Our kids were amazed. They also liked the rain coats. Small tunnels underground, so not so great if you are claustrophobic.

The weather changes. So the availability changes too for some of the trips. When it get to cold aka icy you cant go on some of the trips that you can in good weather.

The best place we saw was the parking lot for Table Rock. It is about a five minute walk from the parking lot to the entrance of Behind the Falls.
