It was so cool going behind the falls on the Canadian side. Not everyone remembers to go on this trip. When you go down in the tunnels turn right to see the windows behind the falls. Then go outside to the observation area for pics...More

The price may seem a little expensive, but definitely worth doing. You will not get the full Niagara experience if you miss Journey Behind The Falls.

The trip itself is a long elevator ride to a tunnel and viewing platform at the base of the falls. Lines can be long, but it is a unique vantage point. The view from the tunnels can vary based on sunlight, etc. Be careful, tunnels...More

You are given a plastic poncho to prevent total soaking but you get wet anyway. It is worth it as it is exciting, beautiful and noisy. Prepare to climb a lot of stairs. To hear the awesome power of the falls is very rewarding.

It's a must do attraction at a reasonable cost. The tunnel behind the falls includes very interesting facts noted on big posters attached to the walls. Great place to view the falls up close.

Down inside the bowels of the earth for 20c$ you can see the other side of the Niagara Falls. There is a place on the USA side where you could get even closer but this is as close as I would want to get. The...More

Prepare to get wet. Awesome, so close to the Falls. A lot of historical information posted throughout the tunnels, which I appreciated. A Self guided tour, I would allow like 30 to 60 minutes to tour. On the day we visited a band (The Darcy’s)...More

I LOVE going to the falls and being able to have an opportunity to be right under was awesome but the cost seemed a bit much for what you got. You are paying for the 'view' and for them to pay the camera people to...More

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.

It is best to have slip resistant footwear, with circle-grip outsoles or vibram soles. Much of the time, you will be walking on wet concrete surfaces. Most hi-tech boots would work.
