Greatest 10 mins ever!! There were 3 helicopters in service so things moved pretty quickly. They put a minimum of 5 people on at a time and maximum of 7. The flight was very smooth and offers a pre-corded tour guide as you fly over. They offer free ear plugs. It was great for our 7 year old too! Highly recommend!!

This past weekend we decided to take the helicopter flight over Niagara Falls. With visitors to the area down by a huge percentage without the usual international tourists, we took advantage of seeing our national treasure at a more relaxed and leisurely pace. Traffic was at a minimum and parking plentiful. I would say the majority of people were obeying and following social distancing and masking precautions. Businesses were very welcoming and eager to make everyone feel safe. With all this in mind, we went to take a flight in the helicopter. We only had to wait about a half hour and were very impressed by the cleaning procedures followed by the staff. The flight itself was a joy. Our only criticism was that even though we phoned ahead and talked to staff about the procedures, they failed to tell us that we would need to bring our own earphones and a smartphone to use the audio system in the helicopter. No earphones could be provided due to Covid restrictions. We would have enjoyed hearing the audio commentary while on the flight.

On Sunday (Father's Day), my son and I were driving through Niagara Falls along the river and noticed the helicopters were running. We went in in short time, my son and I were flying over the Falls. The trip was fantastic, the ground crew very very helpful and the flight crew most professional. It was an unplanned flight that really made for a Happy Father's Day.
Thank you to the crew and staff.

The staff immediately noted my Airbus shirt as I am a flight instructor for an Airbus aircraft. The firm flies the latest Airbus helicopters. When I boarded, for weight and balance purposes, I was put in the right front seat. The pilot handed me a headset and noted "Hey, you fly the Airbus jets?" Right off the bat, we made a connection. There were two more passengers boarded a minute or so after I got situated. The Airbus helicopters are renowned for their safety record and smooth ride. I wasn't disappointed. The pilot kindly pointed out some things that were not on the audio track played during the flight. It was a CAVU day and the views were spectacular!

Staff was very nice and the overall experience was one to remember. The flight was roughly 10 minutes long and we felt it was the perfect amount of time considering sensitivity to motion sickness. The views were great and learned a few things from the audio tour.

The service was excellent with minimal waiting time. The staff all explained everything that was happening before the flight. There was a recording for the actual flight and the flight itself was fantastic with magnificent views. The staff I. The shop were also very helpful and they also called a taxi for us to return to our hotel

Very exciting! Everyone was pleasant, safety minded! We sat up front and my husband took wonderful pictures of the entire area. They took our picture with the ground crew, and pilot and you can purchase an 8x10 or larger if you wish. The also have a memory stick for sale if that is your choice. We chose the 8x10 for our wall to have as a reminder of our trip for our 40th anniversary.

Well worth it. Great views of the Falls from the sky. Very smooth and slick operation. Not too much waiting time. Recorded commentary in the helicopter was good. Took the bus out to the airfield and back.

Decided to do the helicopter tour of Niagara as a surprise birthday present for my dad. My mom was too afraid to go so it was the two of us.

We went during the July long weekend on the Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny day with just a few clouds.

I started to get very nervous with my heart thump, thump, thumping as we waited for the copter to return and take our ride. As we boarded I felt my heart want to come out of my chest. I love to fly but have never flown in a helicopter.

The people harness you into your seat and give you headsets to listen to a commentary as you fly.

The craft is very noisy but the headsets really kept that to a minimum.

They position the helicopter as the pilot lifts off so their photographer can take pictures of the passengers.

As we rose into the air and turned to begin the tour I had to close my eyes I got so nervous.

The funny thing is, as soon as I opened my eyes and saw the familiar Niagara River etc. all my fears left and I oohed and aahed for the rest of the journey!

It's spectacular to see the area from this view point! They fly over the river and whirlpool. We saw the aerocar making it's way over the river and two whirlpool jet boats speeding down the river. We saw the power plants and never realized the huge! resevoirs behind them. I knew we were be pretty high up when I saw the height of the hotels and casino. We saw the Falls and saw the MOTM boats heading in and out of the Falls.

All in all It's a thrilling experience and I would definitely recommend it.

The people are very nice at the site. When I purchased the tickets and told the lady, she told me they would have my dad sit up front with the pilot - extra cool!!!!

It's also very cool that they take pictures of you in front of the craft and in the cabin. We bought almost all the pictures. It is expensive however!!

Observation:
Try and sit on the left side of the helicopter. The person sitting next to the pilot and the person sitting behind them have the best vantage point.

My partner and I were traveling with 2 others and were spending a few days in Niagara.

We decided to pay the $170 per person to do the helicopter ride. You were able to just turn up and it was only a short wait until the helicopter ride.

Unfortunately you had the share the helicopter ride with other groups if there was space. This also meant that the group photo you have before you get in the helicopter included strangers! We did not purchase these photos! Each group should be able to get individual photos!!

The helicopter consisted of 2 seats in the front next to the pilot and 4 seats behind. During the flight the helicopter flew over the river with commentary for what you could see. However unless you had the front seats next to the pilot you didn't see any of the rapids or whirlpools.

The helicopter did circle the falls so you do see the falls from all seats but for the price of the flight I would defiantly not suggest doing it. It's a lot of money for a very short flight and if you have the back seats you really don't see that much!
