Amazing veiws

Me and my daughter booked this tour for my daughters birthday and it was excellent. Audio was through headphones. Would definitively do again maybe in the summer months

We were lucky enough to be in Niagara in December, but only had one day to sightsee and figured a helicopter trip would be a great way to see the Falls. A cab took us to the heliport from our hotel, and we pretty much walked straight onto a helicopter. All of the staff were really friendly, but also super... More

I had been looking forward to this excurion since before we left home. My previous experience of a helicopter flight had been in my later school days and helicopters have developed significantly since then. The heliport was busy with continous flights and we were quickly ushered on board, strapped in and ready for take off. The flight covered quite a... More

We booked the Helicopter Tour during a January visit because the Maid of the Mist boats are closed from November through May. I'm afraid of heights and booked it anyway so we could get the full "Falls Experience." The flight was amazing ... the ride was smooth and believe or not enjoyable for even this skeptic!! I'm so happy I... More

We visited Niagara Falls during our break to Toronto. We stayed overnight in Niagara Falls to make the most of the drive down there. We booked the helicopter tour which was good but after having viewed the falls from the skylon tower and down on the ground I think these are much better ways of seeing the falls. The helicopter...

When the boats aren't running this is the only way to get the experience. Far from cheap at 260cad$ but it was a nice professionally run company with good helicopters. Beware they seat six and the centre seats would have a limited view

Wow, what an amazing experience! Both my husband and I are afraid of heights but thought we would suck it up and give it a go. To our surprise found it thrilling rather than scary, we loved it. We arrived and were straight away shown to our awaiting helicopter, a quick photo and we were buckled up and off! There... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and decided to face our fear of heights together by tackling the Skywheel, and Niagara Helicopters. This was my first time ever flying and we were not disappointed, we knew it was a little pricey, but it was well worth it. We paid $272 for the couple, and it was a 12... More

Found this on the internet, its a short ride by taxi, cost $140 Canadian each for a 10 min tour over the falls, but there is a coupon also on the net if you look, and it works for $29 off each. This is a one off ride for amazing views of the falls and the river all the way... More

My 7 year old son and I had a blast!. Excellent view of the falls! Flight is ten minutes and is worth doing once. You probably could hire a pilot and Cessna 172 from St. Catherines Airport and take three people up in the air for an hour for the same price.
