First time in a helicopter and it was great. The pilot certainly knew what he was dong. Felt completely safe and got some amazing pictures of the falls. Only drawback: too fast!!! You feel you can stay up there for hours!

Treat yourself to a once in a lifetime trip over Niagara Falls. The pilot was very efficient, and handled the helicopter with great ease. He took the time to circle the falls several times, from different angles. My suggestion is to get a front seat or window back seat. These helicopters are newer models, well equipped and spacious. If you... More

The trip across the front of the American Falls and over around, and back over the top of the Canadian Falls was awesome. Did not feel as if the trip was too hurried as time was spent hovering around and over the Canadian Falls. A whole new perspective on the massiveness of the Falls.

Tourist trap. Short trip, limited viewing of the falls, expensive. Quick to take your money, usher you on a helicopter, quick happy snap, fly over the falls with voice recording playing. I've done a number of helicopter flights around the world and to date this is the only one I wouldn't recommend.

Dear Mathew: I am sorry you did not have a pleasant experience with our company. We do as much as we possibly can to avoid being a "tourist trap". Unfortunately our flight path is regulated by Transport Canada and the FAA. We literally must follow a standardized path in order to ensure public and client safety. There are several helicopters...

Oh what an experience. Didn't have to wait long to have an experience of a lifetime flying over the spectacular Niagara Falls Park. I was fortunate to be sitting in the front seat and had a birds eye view and I have great photos of the river and the falls. Something I will remember forever.

Our tickets were part of a package deal with our hotel so I feel like we got a good deal. When my group of 4 arrived there was no wait time. We were the only ones in the helicopter so there was no problem for us with the seating. I wasn't a big fan of the recording but I understand... More

Our Niagara tour dropped us off at the helipad and we had a very short wait. There's the obligatory photos to get out of the way before you climb aboard the very smart chopper - there were 3 of them in use - and away incredibly smoothly. The headphones provide a fairly unobtrusive commentary of the various things to see... More
