“I was scared to death, but I did it!!”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

My husband wanted us to take a helicopter ride. I was terrified but I knew our 2 year old would absolutely love the experience. We decided to do it and although I was a nervous wreck the whole time, it was absolutely beautiful and a great experience. I didn't want my anxiety to limit the experience for my son and I am glad we did it. He sat on my husband lap with his headphones on listening to the audio explaining the sites and loved it! The helicopters are very nice.

“Ticked off my bucket list!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

It was my 1st time in Canada and have been wanting to go in a helicopter for so long! There is no better place than over Niagara Falls! It defiantly met all expectation and more! Niagara helicopter ltd were amazing with me and my mum, which made the experience everything I ever wanted! Still can't believe I have been lucky enough to go up and see Niagara for the sky! Defiantly would recommend this company and would do it again in a heart beat! Thanks Niagara Helicopters! X

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

This was amazing! I was a little nervous about it beforehand, but the helicopter is very stable and I felt comfortable once I was on it. The staff is friendly and helpful. Most importantly, the view of the Falls and the surrounding area is breathtaking! The ride was a highlight of my trip and worth every penny.

“Great highflying fun at the falls.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

My wife and I always wanted to do a helicopter tour and decided to try
NHL while we were in Niagara Falls on vacation. The experience was
absolutely fantastic, the weather was perfect and the views were
amazing. The ride from start to finish is approximately 15 minutes
and was relatively smooth. There is a pre-recorded explanation on the
history and what you are viewing along the flight path. I would
highly recommend NHL and the experience to anyone visiting Niagara
Falls. The one knock I will give NHL is that people who reserve
ahead of time should be contacted when flights are delayed or
cancelled due to weather.

“I loved this experience!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

I wanted to do something unique and exciting and they delivered! The flight was amazing, I only wish they had flown lower to the falls but it is breathtaking. I also think it should have been a longer flight. The operation is professional, they had us in the air in 20 mins. I would do this again!
