Wow,is the only word.My wife and i had a flight of a lifetime and would highly recommend it to anyone.We were based at the Embassy suites in Niagara and had to get a taxi to St Catherines Airport , 32 dollars plus a tip.We took of earlier than planned because the weather was not looking good in the afternoon.Ben and Jenny,pilots, both looked after us so well and answered any questions we had and made it very special for us.The flight and views over Niagara were spectacular and the commentary Ben gave was fantastic.Thankyou for a wonderful day and to Jenny who gave us a lift back to our hotel with a little sightseeing included wow and goodluck in your new job.
Unbelievably nice staff. Great views of the falls. I have nothing bad to say about the experience. We loved it!
Never been in a helicoptor before but already planing our next flight, may be the grand canyon.Staff were very informative about what to look out for during the flight and obvious safety precautions.Anybody thinking of seeing Niagara Falls must include a helicoptor flight in their plans.
We had to change our time but the people worked with us and the ride over the falls was fantastic. It was the best part of our trip.
We very highly recommend this company. We were in the helicopter and air traffic control sent us back due to a bad cloud coming in over the falls. We really wanted to do the flight, so they organised another time that suited us, early the next morning as we only had limited time at Niagara. It is the most beautiful sight, flying over the top of the falls. All the staff were very friendly. This was definintely a highlight on our trip.
Very enjoyable, if you are into aviation! I never been in a helicopter before and next year I think I will book another flight. The helicopter flight was affordable and how it functioned was very unique. Niagara Falls was cool too!

Awesome staff, on ground and in air! Very friendly. Longest flight for the price that I know of. Starting with being greeted on the phone by a courteous and helpful staff, to being offered coffee and information while waiting shortly for the helicopter to arrive. Safe, smooth and super fun! You haven't seen the Falls until you've seen them from the air!
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.
The chopper was a bit old and needed to be upgraded and the weather on the day was a bit overcast and windy not that the company could help that but the views of this magnificent spectacle from the air was just breathtaking and well worth the money. Bear in mind that you do have to make your own way out to the airport from Niagara region which is a fair drive. All in all a great tour.
Your was very good only down side is your not told how far it is away from the falls 20
25 min taxi ride each way plus extra 90 dollars so works out expensive
We enjoyed the tour very much. The staff at reception was friendly and welcoming. I must admit however that I found the ride to be short and felt that I did not have as many picture opportunities on the right hand side of plane where I was seated although we were assured route was figure 8.
what a great place to go on my first helicopter flight. my dad got me this as a birthday treat, the 2 of us had the helicopter to ourselves which was great.
The welcome was friendly and we watched our safety video then headed to the helicopter for out flight, I was a bit disappointed with the pilot commentary as all we got was a very brief bit fro the pilot as we took off about where we were heading to and what we would see then nothing until he said we hoped we had enjoyed our flight, I was kind of expecting commentary throughout which was a shame, also I was hoping that me and my dad could talk to each other but we were in silence and had to express our amazement of our spectacular views via hand signals and big grins.
As for the scenery you cannot fault such an amazing an wonderful place, going over the vineyards on approach to the falls and the first glimpse as it comes into your view all built up to the breath taking views once we were over the falls themselves.
other than the audio side, this was a truly wonderful experience.
