Not worth $, terrible communication
, Mar 2021
We had booked a tour for 2 on the 28th, this company called to cancel but still charged us. We are still waiting for a response, we have called and left numerous messages as well as email, we ate at the point of just wanting to cancel but we've had no communication and our credit card has been charged, we regret purchasing from this company for our son's birthday, it's not worth the hassle, there are quite a few other helicopter operators out there to choose from.

Hello Ian, Thank you for your review. Your booking details show that we had contacted you twice to talk to you about your concerns before you left this review. When you purchase a voucher on Viator, you are paying for a discounted ticket because you are purchasing in advance. As we explained to you, your credit card is charged at the time when you purchase the ticket, not when you take the helicopter ride. We always give a 100% money back guarantee if customers buy vouchers on Viator - for any reason at all. We have a number of five star reviews from people who didn't actually fly with us, for one reason or another, but were very happy with the communication and customer service. When we initially called you to let you know that we needed to move your flight, we let you know that it was because we were going to be unexpectedly closed for the week and that communication would be limited because of that. We didn't cancel your flight at any time - we agreed with you to move it to the following weekend on the 3rd of April during the first phone call. The second time that we contacted you, we let you know that there was no one in the office to answer the phone and that our detailed message left on the answering machine explained that. We contacted every customer who was affected by our week long closure ahead of time and explained exactly what was happening and either moved reservations, or cancelled reservations with a full refund if people requested it. Thank you again for your review. National Helicopters

Stunning way to see the Falls
, Nov 2020
We had to re-schedule a couple of times due to weather (which is totally understandable). We were able to fly this past weekend. It was a great experience from start to finish. The staff were excellent and informed us of the safety protocols for both Covid-19 and helicopter safety. The Pilot was very nice. We had stunning views of the falls and the fall leaves. It was over too soon! Great time!
Unique Experience

It was an amazing experience. I planned it for my girlfriend birthday and we really enjoyed it. I really recommend you to do it especially if you haven't been in helicopter before!

What a great experience, the pilot was very nice and we will definitely fly with him again 💕 this was our first time on a helicopter and we definitely were not disappointed, this is a must try for sure , very worth it 😊🚁😊
Staff are Great!

The length of the tour was perfect. In regards to COVID they were good about keeping a distance & sanitizing between rides. They were clear on instruction and the tour operator was really nice and they do a phenomenal job at communicating. It was an amazing experience.
Ride is not enough for falls view and not enough time for picture after ride,
, Oct 2020
Get the 20 minutes ride and get on fall for 2 min. rest is surrounding. NOt enough time to get pictures after ride complete.

Hello Devang, Thank you for your review. I'm the base manager here in Niagara and I was the person that took your photos beside the running helicopter, after your Niagara tour on the 17th of October. After each helicopter tour of Niagara Falls, we allow our passengers to take as many pictures as they would like beside the helicopter, within reason. We took quite a large number pictures of you and your wife exchanging rings beside the helicopter for your anniversary before we needed to board the next group of passengers. We had five consecutive flights that were scheduled to depart after your flight landed and only one aircraft operating, which is why I discussed with you that we didn't have time to take you back outside for more pictures. One of the positive comments that we get quite often in our reviews is that we take a lot of time to accommodate passengers with special requests. If we have prior notice that people would like to take more time for photos or for boarding, we will always accommodate them if we can. We are located a bit further from Niagara Falls than the other two Niagara based helicopter tour companies, which gives passengers quite a bit more time in the air to take in the surrounding Niagara Region. All three Niagara helicopter tour companies spend the same amount of time in the flight pattern above Niagara Falls, which is a mandatory route for everyone. Thank you again for taking the time to review us. Best regards, Jamie
Our pilot Ryan was Great,,,Very friendly and accommodating
, Oct 2020
Went on this adventure as a date with my girlfriend, my first time flying in a helicopter not hers but we both loved it. It’s the best way to see the fall colours I must say. The view of the falls was excellent as well. If you have a camera (SLR) don’t forget it lol, We both had fun. Thanks Ryan (pilot)

Was an amazing adventure. All staff were kind and attentive with great attention to detail. Our seats were disinfected from the previous flight before we boarded. Well worth the price.
