“It's a must”

Journey Behind the Falls
Reviewed 2 April 2018

Especially in the spring- summer months when you can venture out onto the open observation deck, the sights and sounds are breathtaking. It's great to go behind the falls as well and read the history and hear the thunder of the water. In the winter months you can still get close from a covered deck.

We decided to do this tour as it was the only one open during the winter months. None of the boats that go directly next to the falls are in service during this time. It was discounted because the lower deck was closed due to the snow and icy conditions. It worked out to $13-14 a person. Overall not THAT much to see. Two observation “holes” and one observation deck. Got some decent videos and pictures.

From the deck you can see about as much as from the street on the top. From the two viewpoints behind the falls you basically see nothing than water coming down...

This is a unique experience. A must do to fully feel and hear the waterfall at its full strength. It is very busy on the weekend so be prepared for line ups

the ponchos/raincoats were essentially useless... which is fine because we expected to get wet. we were excited to get wet!

it was wonderfully loud by the falls. you can feel the power of it as you stand and try to take photos of the rushing water. there were a LOT of people but that's a given - this is a different way to see and experience Niagara, afterall.

a tad pricey but so worth it!
