Our travel guide, Peter was excellent! He was willing to answer any questions we had and was very informative and knowledgeable about the falls. He wasn't rushing or hovering over us while we browsed the gift shop either. He was very genuine and super friendly, he was a blast! Cave of the Winds allows you to view the waterfalls from a closer and better angle! It was beautiful and absolutely worth the money!

Very informative. Gave tidbits of facts that are not well-known. Even with the elevator, there are still a couple of flights of stairs you have to take to enjoy the entire tour. In the spring, fall, and winter, dress warm, be prepared for cold wind on your cheeks, hands, and ears, and extra cold mist on your face from the incredible falls. The sites are breathtaking. If you can swing it, cross to the Canadian side for even more spectacular views.
