The sound is like thunder; the sight is awe-inspiring! Take a journey deep below and behind the heart of Niagara, and stand in the mist where the mighty Horseshoe Falls tumbles from 13 storeys above! At Journey Behind the Falls, you'll experience the awesome spectacle of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down to the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 2, 800 cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every second, traveling 65 kilometers per hour! You'll find Journey Behind the Falls at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, in the Table Rock Welcome Centre. Take an elevator down 45 metres (150 ft.) through bedrock to tunnels leading to the Cataract Portal and Great Falls Portal, one-third of the way behind the massive sheet of water. Walk on to the Upper and Lower Observation Decks at the very foot of the Falls. In the spring and summer months, you'll receive a free souvenir biodegradable rain poncho as protection from the mist of the Falls.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Skylon Tower, 5200 Robinson St, Niagara Falls, Ontario L2G 2A2 Canada
The Skylon Tower has the best view of Niagara Falls and you can decide how you want to take advantage of being 775 feet up in the air. Choose from our Revolving Dining Room that rotates 360 degrees every hour or take our famous bug elevator up to the Observation Deck or do both. The Skylon Tower is famous for its view of Niagara Falls, River, the Toronto Skyline and Buffalo on the American side.
The Skylon Tower is one of the top attractions in Niagara Falls and a must for those who want to see a bird’s eye view of the City and the surrounding area. Bring your camera, there’s no other place you can go to where you can take a picture all around the city from one location. Day or night your visit will not be the same, the expansive skies during the day and the City lights at night ensure that no two experiences are the same. We invite you to stay a while and enjoy a Sunday brunch at the Summit Suite Buffet or enjoy our specially crafted menu at the Revolving Restaurant. Be sure to set aside some time to enjoy your stay.
775 Feet, 52 Seconds to the Top
The Skylon Tower features three signature Yellow Bug elevators that was the first of its kind when construction began of the Skylon Tower. They were designed and engineered with our guests in mind. The Yellow Bug Elevator has a glass-enclosed exterior so you can view your ascent up the Skylon. Make sure you don’t blink during the ascent up as the Yellow Bug elevators take our guests straight to the top in less than a minute. Once the ride to the top is over, it’s time to experience the Falls in a way you were meant to experience it.

This unique attraction is a very popular stop on the Niagara Parkway and is photographed almost as often as the Falls! The planted face is maintained by Niagara Parks horticulture staff, while the mechanism is kept in working order by Ontario Hydro, the organization that originally built the clock. The intricate designs on the face of the timepiece are created with up to 16, 000 carpet bedding plants. The floral design is changed twice each year, featuring viola in the Spring and four cultivars of Alternanthera along with green and grey forms of Santolina Sage during the Summer and Fall. California Golden Privet and Blue Festuca Grass may be used for contrast. The grounds surrounding the clock feature bedding displays and a tower at the back of the clock houses Westminster chimes that greet each quarter hour. If the door into the tower is open, you can take a glimpse at the clock mechanism and enjoy photographs that show the history of almost every face design all the way back to 1950.

We were late for lunch which was suppose to be covered in our cost, however the waiter told us we owed him for everyones' drinks. Which were $5 a piece and there had been 5 of us at the table. The other couple had left, and I refused to pay $15 for my family, and the other couple. I gave him a $5 and told him that's all I would pay. The tour guide was hard to understand and we were rushed the whole tour.
Well experienced guide cum driver. Picked up on time and explained clearly. Explained everything in detail. Viator quality is there.Well experienced guide cum driver. Picked up on time and explained clearly. Explained everything in detail. Viator quality is there.

My wife and I didn't even get to sit with each other. ABSOLUTLEY no COVID-19 procedures were followed. the guy I had to sit next to on the bus didn't wear his mask. several of the passengers were mask less. the bus driver never once wore a mask on the bus.. We did NOT need proof of vaccination for the tour. the bus driver broke several traffic laws was even passing cars unsafely. The lunch at the Secret Garden was the worst food in Niagara Falls. we were served cold cream of broccoli soup made by Campbells. the Chicken Parm as they called it had no cheese and was a pre-made chicken patty that was extremely "woody" the spaghetti was cold and over cooked. the only good part was the Hornblower boat ride. I would actually rate this experience a negative 5
