Who doesn’t want to view behind the falls! This doesn’t get enough credit. Worth the money and loved the pieces of history along the way.

This is pretty cool experience. A little pricey but everything is pricey at Niagara. We went when it was cold and frozen, probably a better time to go due to no wait. I can only imagine how crowded it can get. I just wish there...More

It was really neat to see all the ice in the water. It was not busy at all, no waiting this time of the year.

This is a must do when you're visiting Niagara Falls. You will get to see views you can't see anywhere else. I highly recommend it!

Went this past weekend. Paid full price. Couldn't see anything out of the 2 portals due to ice. Could hear the falls, just could't see them. Lower platform was not open due to ice. While I understand the necessity for safety in the winter, they...More
