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.

Awesome place to cool off in the hot summer

One of our highlights of this vacation. Even went briefly in the hurricane zone. Best way to feel the power of the Falls is to book this tour. Love this!!!

This was the best way to get up close to the falls! The lines were busy but didn't take long to get through. Prepare to get wet!

If you come to Niagara Falls you really should go through the 'Cave of the Winds' to get an up close view. It's the best of all the tours offered and all the ways to view this natural wonder. One note of caution - no matter what - you will get wet. They give you sandals so you don't have... More

The cave of the winds was so much fun. You will get a poncho and sandals, but you will still get wet if you stand under the falls. But we didnt mind, because it was hot outside. Wouldnt do it in fall or winter.

A must do! We went on July 4th so it was busy. The staff was saying record number day. The line was very long wait but it was worth it even then. Get a great view of the power of the American side of the falls. You walk into the bridal veil fall. My kids loved it! Everybody around us... More

Feel the incredible beauty and power of nature up close at Cave of the Winds. Secure your belongings well as you will get soaked. This was everyone's favorite of all the attractions at Niagara NY.

You can't imagine the force of the water until you go. You feel so small. It's just amazing to see. The staff and facilities were very good. We went with s tour so it was very easy to get in and out.

Seriously, the wait was bad. Now, my husband and I travelled over labor day weekend, so I'm sure the crowds were at their peak, but we did wait until the heat of the day had passed and the line had shortened up considerably. Even so, we waited on line for OVER 2 hours. We found ways to pass the time,... More
