While the flight is short (about 10 minutes) it was great value for money, seeing this spectacular waterfall from the air. I got to sit in the front, which felt like winning the golden ticket. Not sure if my experience would have been as stunning if I'd had to sit between two large passengers in the back. There is no... More

We took the Helicopter flight over the Park, the Belmond Hotel and the Falls. A view you will not forget. Wonderful. Cost was around AUD140 each and it was for about 15 minutes. Extremely good value for the experience you get.

Took the short tour over the falls and it was spectacular! They have two tours, one is ten minutes and the other was approx 30 minutes. Well worth the $ and time!

A little expensive, but very worthwhile. Family really enjoyed the experience and it was definitely a highlight the trip. 13 year old son said it was the best part of our vacation. Pilot and staff were very professional and efficient. Definitely recommend.

This ten minute flight was fantastic. The cost was worth it for the amazing views, much better than the boat experience. The only downside was the CD we purchased afterwards. It should have shown us getting into the helicopter and taking off but we did not check until we returned home and the CD was corrupted. Check before you leave... More

The best way to see all the falls and start to wrap your mind around the incredible power of nature and the magnitude of the beauty. The trip was short, but long enough for us to have some really special views of one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Definitely worth the money.

My father and I usually don't splurge on adventure things when we travel, but this was truly a spectacular experience. We both have never been on a helicopter ride, and this first time was awesome. It was organized and fast. The helicopter made 3 passes so that both sides could see the falls. Total trip time was around 12 minutes,... More

You can't appreciate how big and massive the falls are until the view them from the air. The trip only lasts a half hour but it is worth the price. Our pictures from the air are completely different from the ones on the ground.

This is not cheap (it cost $116 US for one person) but, as most of the reviews tell you, it is worth it. The trip is almost exactly 10 minutes and the pilot does circle 3-4 times so each side of the helicopter gets great views. They go with a minimum of 3 people and take up to 5. Trust... More
