“Amazing views!”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 via mobile

We had an amazing flight over Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. I was a bit anxious beforehand as I had never been in a helicopter but the staff assured me that it would be a wonderful experience and they were right. This was my highlight of the trip to this area.

We really enjoyed this flight and find it totally recommendable. We saw the falls by boat and took the journey behind the falls in the morning, and then took this helicopter flight in the afternoon on a beautiful Friday in September. The helicopter seats 4 passengers, but we were the only couple on this tour. We were offered that one of us could have the seat next to the pilot which provides a better view, but we preferred to sit next to each other in the back seat. We were given headsets with microphones so we could talk to the pilot during the whole trip (20 minutes). There was a narrative in the background, but it was difficult to hear due to other noise. The pilot provided information about some of the things we saw: Lake Ontario, Toronto skyline far away, the power plant and of course the Niagara Falls. He turned the helicopter in order for us to be able to see the Falls from both sides and all directions. They also took our picture in front of the helicopter after the ride. Great service and a great way to experience the falls!

“15th Wedding Anniversary Celebration Helicopter Flight over Niagara Falls and Niagara Region ”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 via mobile

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 Helicopters Niagara Airport took us on a private, romantic and exciting helicopter flight to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary! Our pilot showed us the best way to see Niagara Falls and Niagara Region! The weather was perfect for our helicopter flight with blue skies, no wind and the fresh air coming in through the windows of the helicopter kept us very comfortably cool as it was a warm day. I've seen the Niagara Falls by boat and many times by standing on the boardwalk in front of the Falls, but seeing the majestic Niagara Falls by a wonderful helicopter flight courtesy of National Helicopters Niagara Airport was by far the most exciting and interesting way ever to see Niagara Falls! Our pilot took us right over the Niagara Falls many times so we could see the Falls from every angle as we used our cell phone cameras and my Nikon camera to capture the most amazing photos of the majestic Niagara Falls and Niagara Region! Our 25 minute flight was just the right length of time and the cost was very reasonable, compared to what we had read online about other helicopter companies in the area who were charging for shorter flights! I am usually scared of heights, but our pilot took us for such an awesome flight over the Niagara Falls that when our helicopter had landed, I laughed and said "Let's go again!" Of course we couldn't do that as we had dinner plans, but we will definitely go back for another helicopter flight with National Helicopters Niagara Airport! We both definitely recommend that if you want to truly experience the beauty of Niagara Falls, that you take a helicopter flight over Niagara Falls courtesy of National Helicopters Niagara Airport, Ontario! We felt very safe buckled in our seats and enjoyed the flight very much because our pilot told us many interesting details about the Niagara Falls and Niagara Region! Our pilot even took photos of us before and after our flight! Thank you, National Helicopters Niagara Airport for making our 15th wedding anniversary the most memorable way to celebrate our special day! The next time we go back to Niagara Falls, we will go for the sunset helicopter flight over Niagara Falls courtesy of National Helicopters Niagara Airport! What an amazing and beautiful way to see Niagara Falls and Niagara Region!

“Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 2 September 2016

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 of both of the falls is amazing and must be seen.

The only disappointment was the location - its is quite far from Table Rock which is where we were staying - we had to get a taxi and that was quite expensive even after agreeing a price, but to be fair though the taxi driver did wait for us.

“Don't Waste Your Money”
Reviewed 23 August 2016

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 three in the rear. 2 of those get window seats but someone has to sit in the middle with views of a post. $200 to look at a post. Another tourist rip off but they abound in Niagara on the Lake. Go elsewhere.
