      100% Recommend!
      We LOVED the whole experience! The hostess & pilot were perfectly professional & very welcoming. The hostess was fully prepared to take pics of us in front of the helicopter with my phone & she even helped us look up directions to our next location before we left (our US phone carrier wouldn’t work in CA). They were SO helpful & the ride was smooth & fun & informational. Absolutely LOVED!!

      We were amazed at how beautiful everything looked from up there, our only wish is we had picked a longer tour. The staff are so polite, calm and patient that it made for an incredible first time flying!

      Amazing helicopter tour, very professional and friendly pilot and staff onsite. Thousand islands are even more beautiful from the air. We did the Helicopter Tour with Craft Brewery Stop and Lunch.

      Outstanding!
      It was such an amazing experience! The pilot we had, Brianna, was fabulous, and made me feel so comfortable. She was so knowledgable, so calm, and handled her helicopter like nobody's business. It was freakin' wicked. Thank you Brianna for an amazing experience!

      An outstanding Tour
      We went on Thousand Islands: Helicopter Tour with Cider Mill and Lunch. This was the most amazing tour. The Staff were awesome, the Helicopter Pilot was second to none (the best) and the staff at the Cider Mill were awesome. The pulled porc BBQ nachos were excellent and the various ciders very good. I would definitely recommend this tour.👌👌

      Great experience for a cheaper price!!!!
      It was really a great experience for that price. They were all so friendly and helpful. I was little scared of heights but they made it so much easier for me. I would like to do it again in the coming summer.

      Mind blowing Breathe taking
      It was one of the most amazing experiences we’ve had together! A wonderful activity for a couple of family. The staff were extremely kind and professional and the helicopters were quite impressive! We will be back for another flight in the future.

      Maiden helicopter flight
      My first flight in a helicopter! I love flying! I have flown in a hot air balloon and all types of small homebuilt and commercial jet aircrafts. The helicopter ride was a different and memorable experience. Bill and the crew were friendly and efficient. We felt safe. I would highly recommend 1000 Islands Helicopter Tours!

    I booked the 20 minute 1000 Island and Boldt Castle tour as a birthday gift for my spouse and it was pretty amazing. The views were beautiful especially with the beautiful fall leaves this time of year. Our tour guide/pilot was great and so friendly making us very comfortable throughout the flight. He also gave us some good tips for future trips in the area, and recommended taking a different route back home to Ottawa via the thousand islands parkway which made the drive much more enjoyable seeing the extra views.

    We just happened to book on a very rainy weekend so we were required to reschedule to the next day due to the weather and it was so worth the wait - and still amazing on a cloudy day.

    It is more affordable than I thought and I would love to go back for a longer tour someday. I highly recommend this to everyone - it’s a must do!!

    The overview of the area that the pilot offered was excellent. As we flew over the area the pilot put us in situ by telling us what landmarks were around. As we got closer to Boldt castle he told us the story behind the castle which was sad but fascinating. The way he told the story painted a clear picture of how much Boldt loved his wife. While telling us the story the pilot showed us the castle from both sides of the helicopter so everyone had an good view at some point. It was beautiful. What I also was extremely happy about was the fact that the pilot was ex-Air Force so I knew we were in safe hands!

    Yesterday my partner and I had the pleasure of taking a Thousand Islands Helicopter Tour. It was an absolutely breathtaking experience. The staff were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. Martine was our pilot, not only was she amazing at flying the helicopter, she was also extremely friendly and pointed out many interesting facts along the way. Safety and cleanliness was their number one priority which is always nice to see, especially during a global pandemic.

    It was a fantastic and must do experience! I highly recommend!

    Very nice people who welcomed us and made us feel at home in their big, comfy waiting area. it was like any small airline terminal. The choppers are just outside and a short walk away. They ran on time and gave a great running commentary on what was below. Very scenic and worth every penny.

    Nice to be in the water on a hot sunny day with a cool breeze. Islands are different sizes from Very big to very small and is amazing to see one of the earth wonders. Boldt Castle Architecture was great and the specified materials He had planned to build the castle was very creative. The story of the castle is great & preserving the place by the Port Authority is good so that ordinary people can have a good time without owning a castle.

    Our pilot, Bill, was friendly, informative, and readily engaged with my teenaged son in the front seat. We enjoyed multiple perspectives of the Twisted Sisters shipwrecks, Boldt Castle, Singer Castle, Millionaire’s Row, and a multitude of islands in the area. Their facility and airframes appear well-maintained and staff are warm and friendly. I’d easily recommend this tour company to anyone interested in excellent aerial views of the 1000 Islands area.

    We took the 30 minute two castle tour. Highly recommend the longer options for tours (30m or 1h). The pilot was confident and knowledgeable on the area, she provided excellent commentary throughout the flight. The views were spectacular, it left us speechless.

    Fantastic tour! Our pilot was Martine who is bilingual and very knowledgeable. She was very charismatic and made my apprehensive 10 year old feel comfortable with her jokes. She flew us over thousand islands and showed us some shipwrecks we wouldn’t have been able to see without the birds eye view. Staff was welcoming and took great care for our safety. Absolutely worth it!

    What an experience! The views over the islands are breathtaking! The weather was perfect in August - no wind, sunny and the water is crystal clear. I had Dave (owner of the tour company) take me and he was really helpful explaining all the history of the castle. My only negative comment would be - it went too quickly! The 20 mins goes quickly so soak it all in, take loads of photos and enjoy the scenery! Thanks team 😀 Emily, from Australia.

    Fantastic staff, incredible views. Don’t hesitate to book this tour. Our pilot Brianne was engaging, Bill our “ground guy” kept us entertained while waiting. Truly a once or maybe twice in a lifetime lol.
