The whole ride. From the second we walked into to airport we were greeted and the experience was explained. Take off was a rush, the ride along the Niagara River was amazing. The falls and the other attractions were incredible to see from 2500 feet. Even the landing was memorable
Stunning views

Really fun tour and a great way to see the falls. The ride was so smooth and the entire family loved it
Chatty kid.
Alan_W, Aug 2022
We were combined with another group with a young child. Pilot talked to child the entire trip and did not point out any points of interest. Did not need headphones just to listen to their conversation. We have kids, but this was overboard.
Awesome experience

A Must Do In Canada and Great Company
Jerry_S, July 2022
We ended our wedding anniversary weekend with this excursion. There were many companies on the US side offering this excursion. This company, National Heli was….. EXCELLENT!! My first helicopter ride. Airport is small, clean, quiet and no big crowds. Loved that!!! I was already anxious on what to expect. Safety instructor had us read the rules then we were escorted to the tarmac and onto the aircraft. This Company is “ ALL ABOUT SAFETY AND A GREAT EXPERIENCE”. Our pilot was amazing. He took off slowly and our ride was soooo steady and smooth. I was able to easily record my entire experience in my iPad and husband captured beautiful aerial shots. They were also gracious enough to take photos of us with our own devices after the ride. Thank you National Helicopter Tours for making our experience so memorable. We did not realize distance coming from the US side when we booked. However, we would do it again. The airport is about a 45 min ride from Buf Niagara airport area. We ended up renting a car for the day, as we were flying out later that day and this solved our transportation issue and eliminated an expensive Uber ride and luggage storage issue.
Christmas in July
Holly_L, July 2022
This adventure was a family Christmas gift. We were the last trip of the day and the staff got us in even earlier and with just our group of 4 - so that was great! The views of the Falls was definitely the highlight - magnificent. Thanks for a great memory.

Ronnie_M, July 2022
Excellent experience great way to see the falls. Pilot was attentive to who was taking pictures and made sure we had the best views
Great tour!
Josh_K, June 2022
Worth every penny! Great views. More communication from pilot would be nice, but he’s busy talking to multiple towers so it’s understandable.
