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.

Too early in the season. No staging, so access was limited. The falls were also partially frozen. Not much to see.

I grew up in the area but never went here until I came back 20 years later with my husband. I wanted to try something I hadn't done already and this fit the bill. Worth a visit.

You basically stand underneath the massive Niagara Falls and experience its pressure. You sure get wet, Advise to carry extra clothing even if they provide your with a rain-wear. Must Go-To.

What an amazing way to experience Niagara Falls. The water literally runs over your feet. You get a poncho to wear and some sandals that you can keep which aren't the best looking but your feet get soaked so don't wear your own shoes unless...More

This is a must visit attraction.You get up close with the falls and can feel is falling on you. Its safe and reasonably priced if you add it to your package.

The cave of the winds allows you to get close enough to experience the falls unlike the other options. The wait for the elevator can be painful but worth it. You are provided sandals to change into so that your shoes don't get wet and...More
