This is a must to do if you go to Niagara falls! Getting a bird's eye view of this Natural wonder is a thrilling expérience. You also get to see the dam and Niagara river and this makes you see the whole site in a different way then if you must see the falls from thé ground.

I was amazed at how stable the aircraft was. Did not even feel like I was flying except when the helicopter banked. Great narrated tour over the American and Canadian falls and some local landmarks and attractions. If you only do one thing in Niagra this should be it.

This is our 4th or 5th trip to Naigara falls and on each trip we learn more about the falls and this beautiful place. Since we have had the opportunity to experience most of things you normally do here, we decided to go either for the Whirpool ride or the Aero cart ride. For some odd reason we could not... More

regardless of the cost, it's over 100 dollars US per person this is a must do. the flight could not be smoother, we had never been on a helicopter before, but whether it was the view, or the commentary, or just the machine and pilot we never had any feeling of discomfort. Just a google search got us a 29... More

Lovely staff and amazing experience with informative, narrated ride. Very efficient, we didn't have a booking and only waited 15min. I felt very safe at all times, although I suggest that the screen on which the safety video is played shouldn't have a big black dead space in the middle, and should be clearly visible.

Our group of 4 were quickly buckled in and connected with headphones. As we took off an automated audio tour began. Though the ride was only about 15 minutes long the memories and majesty of the falls will be forever. The staff inside the terminal and outside were simply outstanding.

A Frugal Friday coupon purchased for 1/2 the usual price put us in a Niagara Helicopter Ltd. whirlybird, and we quickly agreed it was money well spent and something we should have done years before, especially since we've lived in Niagara for 70 years.

I had a ride in Niagara Helicopters today. Unfortunately I was sitting in the back row in a middle seat, the view to the side was obstructed by the person sitting next to me and couldn't see out of the front as impossible as three people in front of me. In my opinion there are only four good viewing seats,... More
