Our party of eight flew out on a bright, sunny day using two helicopters. All staff and pilots were extremely friendly and efficient and being strapped into the helicopters only increased the excitement levels to new highs! The views over the Falls and surrounding area were simply mind-blowing! A few of my friends were not too keen on heights, but all fears disappeared as they gazed down upon sights simply too spectacular to describe in the limited space available. As the sun bore down on the area, the helicopters would fly towards the Falls at an angle, which would let us see amazing rainbows dancing and shimmering over the waters raging below. I was disappointed in being on a helicopter with no commentary as the only foreigner in the party, I'm from Northern Ireland, it would have been most helpful if I was told what the various buildings and landmarks were, a facility available on the second helicopter. Another disappointing feature was the time advertised on the website. It claims the whole thing will take an hour, in fact it lasted about forty minutes with the flight barely half of this! Having pointed these two weaknesses out, I still think the flight over Niagara Falls was well worth the money! Everyone agreed it was an experience we would all remember for the rest of our lives, and the smiles on the faces of the children would have been worth the cost by themselves. So, stop thinking about this, just go right ahead and book it, I guarantee you won't regret it!
The ground staff were fantastic and made our visit extra special!
A great experience from start to finish! Extremely friendly staff at the airport and on board the helicopter.
We had an excellent trip, and were made to feel most welcome. The view was marvelous, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone.
Great location, staff very friendly! We can highly recommend it to everybody who goes to the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls! Just to let you know, better to rent a car if you come from Buffalo than take a taxi as we did and less cost!
This was a brilliant experience. We flew over Niagra on the Lake vineyards, as well as Niagra Falls. The only adverse comment was that we first went to the wrong airport. Luckily, the staff was very accommodating, as we had missed our flight time.
My family loved it. The people were very courteous and in fact even let me go on the flight about 30 minutes earlier. No hassle at all.
Had to wait awhile due to weather but crew was helpful in giving updates. Had hoped to get closer to the falls but it was still an amazing view. Overall would recommend.
Definitely a must do! Very nice team and even if the tour in the helicopter is a little less that 20mns it is worth it. We had a clear sky, smooth flight and gorgeous views over the Niagara Falls area. Will recommend highly!
We had a wonderful time on our first helicopter trip. The staff that helped my mother celebrate her 90th birthday could not have been kinder. We really needed help getting mom on and off the helicopter. They were very nice to her!!!! My only complaint and suggestion would be about the headsets. The ones that my 2 grandsons used worked and moms and mine did not. It made it hard because mom is also legally blind. I would have liked to talk her through the adventure by telling her what we were seeing.
My boys (20yrs and 22yrs) and myself throughly enjoyed the helicopter ride. It started on time and the views are amazing.
Staff were excellent, courteous and friendly. Chief complaint was that the flight time was too short, we got the full 20 minutes, but only 5 minutes were over the falls themselves. We would have liked a longer flight in general with more time spent over Niagara Falls. Well worth the money though, amazing to see from the air.
Enjoyed it very much,the operator and assistant were very nice and helpful.
our tour was very we enjoyed the tour and would do it again
It was simply fantastic - I sat in the front beside the pilot, and the it was a beautiful day, blue skies. The trip was really too short, but well worth the money. Terrific
We had a superb trip, the view is just so different from all aspects at ground level. Compared to other sightseeing helicopter trips I have had this was so much more value for money. Myself and my friends would recommend this to anyone visiting the falls.
