Full description
Experience the wonder of Niagara Falls from both the American and Canadian sides. Stand between the falls on a walking tour of Niagara Falls State Park, USA. Then, you’re free to visit the Canadian attractions 'Journey Behind the Falls' and 'Whirlpool Aero Car' at your leisure. In the winter, the Whirlpool Aero Car is substituted with entry to the Niagara Fury. Your walking tour starts and ends at the Hard Rock Cafe on the American side. Wander through Goat Island, taking in views of the Horseshoe Falls as you hear about their formation. Walk to Luna Island to stand between the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls for awe-inspiring views. At your own pace, return to the Canadian side to visit the Niagara Whirlpool Aero Cable Car attraction to be transported through the air in an antique cable car. Below you the torrent of water creates the mesmerizing natural phenomena of the Niagara Whirlpool. To stand at the heart of Niagara, make your way to the Journey Behind the Falls attraction. An elevator ride takes you 125-feet (38.1-meters) down to 130-year-old tunnels located behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. The observation deck at the foot of this 13-story-tall wonder will leave you breathless and offer a once-in-a-lifetime view of one-fifth of the world’s freshwater crashing down in front of you.

easy To book both attractions

Journey behind the falls doesn’t offer single ticket online and only offer a package pass but we only need this attraction. We found getyourguide can offer 2 attractions tickets. So we booked this activity and redeemed tickets at journey behind the falls for both attractions. It was easy transport to aero whirlpool cable car from journey behind the falls by WEGO bus. We enjoyed both attractions.

The Aero car has a great view of the Niagara river with the spectacular whirlpool. Journey behind the Falls is a fun experience to hear and see the violence of the falling water up close.
