My husband and I were very excited to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary by taking a helicopter flight over Niagara Falls and Niagara Region and we chose National Helicopters Niagara Airport for our first ever helicopter flight! By the time we got to the Niagara Airport, it was around 5:00 pm. So as there weren't any other passengers waiting, National... More

The helicopter which we took the trip in seated 4 in the back and 1 in the front so every one had a window seat and amazing views throughout the 20 minute ride. The staff on arrival were helpful and courteous. The ride was smooth and considering it was our first time flying in a helicopter very enjoyable. The views... More

Overpriced attraction that I really don't understand what everyone is raving about. The commentary, which was virtually impossible to hear, was a mixture of Celine Dion songs and descriptions in FRENCH. I tried to ask the pilot to switch it to English but apparently my microphone wasn't working either. There are 4 seats besides the pilots, one in front and... More

We booked this trip through Viator with the help of a great rep named Carlos. Quick friendly check in. Upon arrival, a printed safety briefing is given out to passengers, no long shpiel. Next thing we knew, we walked to the helicopter, buckled in, head phones on and were ready to go. We were paired with an elderly couple, which... More

We booked this Helicopter Tour of Niagara through our agent, after reviewing a number of providers. Leave from an airport with facilities, not a parking lot with a pad! These guys are very safety conscious, provide a good tour for a reasonable fee, and I think they offer a little longer tour, because they are on Lake Ontario, rather than... More

The staff is very accomodating, and cares about the customer's satisfaction. Absolutely gorgeous view of the falls and the river from the skies, the weather was perfect. The flight is 20mn long, the longest I found for this kind of tour. We were a family of 5 and they managed to seat everyone in the helicopter next to a window,... More

Don't let the price dissuade you from taking this tour. It's an absolute highlight of the Niagara Falls. The views of the falls and surrounding areas are stunning and the helicopter flight is an amazing experience overall. Besides, at twenty minutes, this flight is quite a bit longer than many of the other helicopter tours. Worth every penny.

If you are like me, I had a hard time picking between helicopter companies over Niagara falls. This company was a great option for us. Our group of 7 (ages 9 to 63) all loved it. Here is why we are glad we chose this company: 1. Helicopter ride is 20 minutes vs. 10 minutes (this location is near the... More

Fantastic experience. Friendly check in staff, who kept us informed about timings due to weather. The reception area is clean and has washrooms and vending machines. The ride was smooth and we always felt safe in the hands of the pilot. The route gives everybody a view of the falls. A must do if you are in the area -... More

This is something everyone needs to experience at least once in their lifetimes. The views of Niagara Falls from the air are simply spectacular. I was fortunate to be given the seat next to the pilot so had a superb view, but it was difficult for the two people in the middle of the back seat (it seats four people... More
