About
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.

Took out of town friends to Niagara Falls, walked a bit to the Horseshoe Falls and then to the Cave of the Winds. A bit of a line, but not too bad as long as two elevators are working. There is a fun movie and...More

Although some work was in progress at the site, the visit to the site was excellent. A climb down through an elevator and a short walk will take you to the Cave of winds which is a natural phenomenon

You have to visit this site when at the falls. It’s a true once in a life time experience. Be prepared to get soaked even with the poncho they give you. Highly recommend.

The day that we went there they only had one elevator operator working ( on a Saturday in the middle of the day) so the line was LONG and we had to wait well over 30 minutes. It was interesting, but not worth that kind...More

When we visited, it was a condensed version.. called as trip to the gorge. But we didn’t miss much. Gives a good view of the fall, might of the water gushing down . It will rank below the “maid of the mist” for sure

Not to be missed. Not many tourists are aware of this. But we thoroughly enjoyed and the whole family liked. Once in a life time must visit place and do not miss this if you visit Niagara

You should not miss this location while visiting Niagara Falls, NY. Even though it was cold and you could still see frozen parts of the falls, the views were awesome. Great selfie opportunity beckons!.

Everyone has different interests and opinions but I liked it more than Maid of Mist. Visited twice and every time I feel amazed when I reach the last point where you are closest to the fall. Even though it's the smallest fall among three, you...More

No, you can go close..... but not closest.... it is still under renovation... so the shortened trip is called “tour of the gorge “... full path may be ready in another 1 month.
