What people are saying about Ontario

First of all our tour guide was by far the best guide ever, and we’ve been on a bunch of tours all over the world. Although the helicopter ride was cool, and offered a view like no other, I would have liked a lower altitude view. We really enjoyed our lunch, and loved the view. We had a last minute substitution for the boat ride, and at first we were disappointed, but it was a very fair trade, and we had a great time while picking up the boat ride on our own the next day. Wonderful tour!!

The experience is amazing and best believe your in great hands with an allert pilot. Breathtaking view of the falls and surrounding places. I recommend 100%.I will definitely be using this company again for future flights around the falls.

Great experience. Totally worth it though not much adrenaline rush as I expected.

This is a must do while in Niagara Falls!! Breathtaking views and it’s fun too!

My daughter and I went together and it was wonderful. Very invigorating.
