Two of us took this tour yesterday. The flight was great, the views were breath taking, and we arrived back safely. Our only complaint was that we did not get ANY commentary. There was absolutely NO communication from the pilot. Not a thing. Perhaps radio...More

Got a groupon for this service, so it was quite economical. I was expecting our ride to be shared, but it wasn't - it was just me, my girlfriend, and the pilot, so it felt very exclusive. There was no difficulty booking the flight, the...More

We had the time of our lives....maybe the most beautiful place in the world. I highly recommend this particular tour. It was 20 minutes in flight instead of 10 minutes that most of the other companies do.

Flew over the falls with family. A little pricey $700 for 5 people but considering I paid around £100 (UK) in 1986 for just myself then not too bad. We flew from Niagara District airport on a 20 minute flight up to the river where...More
