Journey Behind the Falls, Niagara Falls
(3.8/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
Admire Niagara Falls from a different vantage point with a visit to Journey Behind the Falls. Hidden behind the powerful waterfall, the tunnel offers several viewing platforms that give visitors a fresh perspective on the thunderous cascade. Be sure to wear a poncho or waterproof jacket on your visit, as you'll almost certainly get doused by heavy sprays of water. Reserve your tickets in advance, as the popular attraction can sell out. For Journey Behind the Falls and beyond, use our Niagara Falls trip builder to get the most from your Niagara Falls vacation.

  • I don't know how you could do this tour and not love it! Walking behind the falls and then out on the observation deck next to them - incredible. The power of the falls and the amazing view standing behind them is awe inspiring. You do get a biodegradable yellow poncho to wear during your self-guided adventure. It wasn't really needed the day we visited. Take the time to stop and read all the history facts and look at the photos along the wall as you walk through. Interesting facts and figures about the falls and their history. We didn't do some of the other tours available in the Adventure ticket but that did seem like the best pricing if you wanted to do the boat tour into the bottom of the falls as well. We are looking forward to bringing our family back to see the falls in the near future.
  • Was not worth the money at all!!!! Spent $50 expecting a much better view behind the falls and something a little more fun/interesting then a concrete tunnel with pictures. Wouldn't do it again. Sure its cool to say I did it but I didn't think it was $50 worth... Then $30 for a picture.... No thanks.... Maybe I'm just cheap? The Bird Kingdom was far betterm and I highly recommend it if you have kids. My 2 and 7 year olds were beyond bored behind the falls.
  • Amazing experience. The sound rather then the sight has more intensity in this adventure. The thrill, the rush is also due the feeling that the river is flowing above your head. Not for claustrophobic people though.
  • Amazing experience! There are 3 points of interest there: panoramic view (first point) which is fantastic and 2 points which are just openings with water falling, they are exactly the same. Definitely check this tour!
  • The idea of being "behind the falls" is certainly intriguing. I imagined walking behind a sheet of water for 30 or 50 yards. In reality, you walk through tunnels with a "view port" to see the water in front of you (two places) and a platform on the side of the fall. I was disappointed. Since you did most of the walking in the tunnel, the pace is pretty slow because everyone takes their time at the view ports to take pictures and since there are only two, it moves very slowly. The price, which is almost the same as the boat tour, is far too high for such an attraction.
