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.

While the US side may be considered inferior to the Canadian side, they both have their star players in the ways of attractions. For the US, Cave of the Winds is among the elite. When I first visited Cave of the Winds, I was very young at the time, but I remember liking it a lot. When I returned to... More

Definitely worth the visit. The entire section wasn't open but it didn't matter. You get what it's all about from any spot. Loved it!!

I visited first time to this falls. The experience was realy awesome. It was a huge crowd in Midday. To enjoy the peace and falls, try to visit in early morning hours. The visit will be good and you can move fast .

Amazing experience at the cave of the winds. Definitely worth the wait to reach near the cave... gushing water falling on you is so much fun :)

It's pricey to go to this but it is awesome on a hot summer day. You get to experience the power and presence of the falls first hand. The up and down of the steps is not challenging and it's not overly long walk. Along with the maid of the mist this was the best part of the falls.

You will definitely get wet here, but it was well worth it! We loved being able to get right into the falls.

Good to visit while at Niagara Falls. Gives a very good view of the falls and of the rainbow bridge (that connects US with Canada). Be careful with kids and need to keep camera and mobile phone covered to save it from water
