Wow wow ! An absolute lifetime experience & the best way to see the falls for sure, i done this with my partner & my eight year old son, we were lucky to have such a gorgeous clear day, all the staff were superb explaining everything to us what to expect etc. We got fabulous pictures & a few videos. We will not forget this experience for sure, definitely worth every penny & would recommend it as the best way to see & experience the Canadian & American falls

This is THE way to experience the majesty of Niagara Falls! We flew on a clear day and the view was spectacular. The ride wasn't nearly as bumpy as I had anticipated, and the flight was pretty smooth. The only criticism I'd levy is that you couldn't hear the narrator that was talking over the loudspeakers in the helicopter which left me wondering why they bothered having it on in the first place. Other than that, I HIGHLY recommend this experience!!!

This, is a MUST DO, when visiting the Falls! I’ve done the helicopter ride twice. And will do it again. The staff is friendly, and very accommodating. Had no problem rescheduling my ride, when they couldn’t fly on the day I booked for. A nice smooth ride over the city to the Falls. And the views, WOW!!! Amazing! I tell all my friends they have to try.
