Ontario, Canada. The thunderous roar of 2,800 cubic meters of water falling every second as it travels 65 kilometers per hour is simply breathtaking! This is a great way to cool off if you visit during the summer months, and there is no need to do your hair. It is amazing to feel and see the power of this massive waterfall up close and personal. All of your senses will be stimulated!

Amazing. An experience like no other. The sound standing next to the falls is like nothing you've ever heard before. This is a must.

This up close and personal look from a different perspective of the Falls is amazing for anybody. All of my children love it and I would definitely recommend you take your children

A complete waste of time. The observation deck is nice but don't stand in line to go "behind" the falls. Pictures don't turn out and it isn't interesting to look at.

Of all the tours that I have taken, this is the one that I have disliked the most. As people have said, you walk through a tunnel and you can look through these holes and guess what you see? The backside of water!! I did not enjoy it at all, and pretty much thought that it was a rip-off. You are better off taking the Maid of the Mist and seeing the falls in all their glory.

Viewing the falls from above is amazing but getting behind the falls was even better! I was a little nervous on the way down in the elevator, but the views were amazing. I did not know what to expect once we were given a free rain poncho, but we stayed fairly dry even on the most exposed platform. There are many other smaller tunnels which were very interesting to explore. Placards decorate the walls giving you a history of the falls which is a nice touch. This is a self guided tour so you can spend as much or as little time below as you want. It was nice to not feel rushed during our visit. Definitely a must do!

Journey Behind the Falls is an amazing walking tour that takes you into the tunnels behind Horseshoe Falls. It's wet, a little eerie, and just plain cool. The tour lasts about 45 minutes. Though ponchos are sometimes provided, take your own rain gear to be sure that you stay dry. A visit to the Lower and Upper Observation Decks also is included.

Journey Behind the Falls lets you climb down the tunnels behind Horseshoe Falls to experience the middle of the waterfall. It's windy and wet, but they provide some raingear for you.

You take an elevator and then are left in tunnels behind the falls. You are given some thin plastic hoodies to wear so you don't get that wet.

Each time through over the years as I have grown this journey has always seem to get better and better over time. They always make improvements to new discoveries. I can remember when we only went to a small area, and now there is so much more to this Journey to see, it never seems to amaze me....take your time and absorb it all or else you may miss something unique.

OK, this is another tourist activity that you need to experience - you get up very close to the actual falls. You used to get much closer but because of falling rocks (and people...) they moved the walk way back. The falls are tremendous and actually a lot of the water is diverted because of the power plant.

It is neat to get right behind the falls. You get to wear yellow jackets. I wouldn't recommend reaching your hand out lol. Many people throw coins and make a wish.
