Niagara Falls Grand Helicopter Adventure

335 reviews
First-time visitors to Canada likely have Niagara Falls at the top of their to-do list and the most incredible views of the falls are from above. This helicopter tour offers almost double the time in the air to other tours, so you can enjoy views of not only the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Horseshoe Falls, but Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara wine country, and along the Niagara River.

It seemed to be overpriced for the tour, because the site itself is contained to a small area. It was fairly interesting, though and they let you print a bookmark yourself by pulling the handle on an antique press.

My girlfriend and I took a tour of the Mackenzie Printery Museum as part of the Niagara Parks Access Package. It was a great tour. The three young ladies really knew their stuff and they were so nice. I recommend this tour to anyone who loves history. Bonus: I got to print my name using one of the printing machines.

This visit is about 20 minutes long, depending on how many questions the group has. You get to have an experience in making a print with your name on it and learn about the improvements of the printing business.

This museum is housed in a historic building which once actually operated as a printery. Docents take you through and explain what you're looking at, and even show you how one of the old-time presses work. Their presses span from the earliest days of printing in Canada through the modern (pre-computer) era. After the tour you can go back and spend as much time as you like looking closer, and asking questions. Incidentally, this is one of the few museums in the area that are open on Mondays.

This little museum is fantastic. We spent about an hour in here learning all about the history of printing (the history of the building is also quite interesting). Our tour guide, Evan, was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting, fun and interactive especially for our kids (ages 9, 7 and 4). We got to create a line of text and print it using one of the larger printing presses and also made bookmarks using a more advanced type of printing press. For a small place, they have done a great job of displaying a lot of information and original printing equipment. They have for sale some printed sayings and I bought a pretty pewter ornament. They could do a little better and maybe even sell more gift shop items if they were easier to access (it was hard to see some of the items as they were low to the ground); I know space is limited though. All in all - a great place to visit!
