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.

Pleasantly surprised at how well organized it is despite the fact that there is construction in the area. Well flowing despite crowds. Great attraction for both kids and seniors. Must see!

We toured both the American side and the Canadian side and this was our favorite part of the trip. There are a lot of stairs, but it is well worth the climb. This is an up close view of the Falls and you experience the...More

This was the best thing we did at Niagara Falls! The kids LOVED it! When you arrive, they take your picture for purchase later. They give you skid-proof sandals and a bag to put your shoes in so they won't get soaked. You ride an...More

No, I wouldn't think so if you are asking for wheelchair handicap accessible. it is a walking tour that you have to climb stairs.

Yes but somewhat limited.
We are a group of 17 people, 11 adults and 6 children travelling to Niagara for a day. Is it recommended to buy tickets for Cave of the Winds and Maid of the Mist online before hand, or better to buy across the counter when we reach. Also is the discovery pass worthwhile if we are there just for a day, around 7 hours max
