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.

One of the best things to do if you're on the New York side of the falls. Well worth the visit and worth the cost to enter.

What a marvel! You take the elevator down to see the falls up close and personal. Because of the freezing winds we stepped out of the elevator into a genuine winter wonderland. I've never seen such a beautiful sight. Rainbows were everywhere. We couldn't climb...More
