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.

As Ozzies on a NE corner road trip, this tour, with the Maid Of The Mist + the Gorge/Falls themselves will be a definite highlight of our 6 weeks.

If you go to Niagara Falls you have to do the Cave of the Winds. It is just impossible to describe the power you feel when you are next to the falls crashing on the rocks. Hurricane deck is really amazing with water hitting you...More
