After going on the Hornblower cruise we decided to have a helicopter flight to see it from above as well. It was one of the best trips we've been, yes it's expensive, but (for us) worth every penny.

We had a wonderful time in Niagra Falls and the trip over the falls in the helicopter was brilliant. It was very well organised we all enjoyed it.

The view was amazing. Dreamt of it since my early childhood. However, the security guard's attitude spoiled the experience forever. We paid for our trip, and time was not an issue for us. As soon as the staff saw us, he said we must board. We said we want to wait for the next flight. The staff member insisted that... More

Went up on a beautiful day with blue skies. The falls were spectacular from the helicopter and the pilot flew all round in order to give everyone ample opportunity to obtain great photos. Definitely recommend.

$111 for a 10 min ride over the falls and the whirlpool rapids. It was a nice ride but not really worth the money. On top of that, you have to pay for the photos they take of you with the helicopter. Everything is overly staged and pricy!

Dear Phyllis: Thank you for you review and your comments. We strive to keep our rates as low as we can, but there are many factors which must be taken into consideration where helicopter flight rates are concerned including fuel and aircraft maintenance costs as well as other overhead. That said, we will take your comments into consideration for future... More

Picked up the helicopter trip on the way into Niagara as otherwise you need to catch a cab or free bus out to the site. Very slick operation well organised very little waiting around and nice helpful staff. Up and away, pre-recorded commentary and amazing views as it scoots over the falls and surrounding areas. Great for the kids also... More

We enjoyed the ride up the Niagara River and over the Falls. They play a pre recorded tape telling you all about your trip and what you are seeing then. The pilot does not talk at all. If there is any knock it would have been nice to ask questions about the ride. They take your picture entering the helicopter,... More

The helicopter ride itself makes this worth the while as the views are incredible and something you will never see from the ground as there the actual Falls area is so huge. However I left thinking these guys need some lessons in customer service. Perhaps it was because the lady taking the money and then the apron crew allowing themselves... More

Excellent staff! Pilot was so great. Not a bumpy ride at ALL. I wasn't worried which allowed me to enjoy the view. Taken right over the falls and it was a wonderful experience for my first time in a helicopter ! Would go again for sure
