I can't comment on the value of the trip as it came as part of a package. However, as someone who has never flown in a helicopter before it was breathtaking. Being winter and a windy day (pilots are excellent) we did not have to queue and had the flight to just the two of us and the pilot. He... More

Although a bit pricey, the helicopter ride is one of the things to do when in Niagara. The WEGO bus goes close to the helicopter terminal or you can drive your car to their parking area. The ride was smooth and the pilot manoeuvrers the helicopter so that all seats get a good view of the Falls and surrounding country.... More

My first time in a helicopter and it was amazing! The flight was smooth ( no turbulence like on a plane) . The view was spectacular over Niagara Falls and surrounding area. Seeing the Falls up close on the Hornblower boat was amazing too and feeling the mist. The only complaint was it was all over too soon and seemed... More

Many travelers have visited Niagara Falls, either at the America side or the Canada side or on both sides. Unfortunately many have missed the helicopters ride over Niagara. The 25min flight costs about US$145 and it’s worthwhile. The spectacular aerial views on Niagara Falls and surround areas are really impressive and you will bring home lasting memories plus some magnificent... More

I actually had my wedding in one of Niagara Helicopter's Helicopters over Niagara falls. They didn't actually preform the ceremony or plan it however I did want to point out how amazing the staff was. The staff was great, accommodating to my wedding party of ten people, let everyone go up on the helipad for pictures and was patient as... More

This really is the only way to see the falls. We arrived just as a storm was ending (although they said they didn't really have to stop flying) and there was no queue at all. We walked straight up to the desk, bought a ticket then pretty much walked straight on to a helicopter. The ride is quite short, but... More

Neither my husband or I had been in a helicopter so we thought it was time to change that! It was awesome. It is not a very long flight especially considering the price but is very informative and the view is spectacular! The staff is very friendly! Totally would do it again!

What a thrilling way to see the Falls and surrounding area! We loved it. I felt totally safe (and I hate flying), it was about a 20 minute flight but you got to see everything. I would totally recommend it.
