Great Experience!
, Aug 2022
Baught this as a surprise birthday gift for my boyfriend and we both had an amazing time! Would definitely recommend.
Great flight, Misleading ad
, Aug 2022
We had a wonderful flight and the team at the airport was amazing. However, the Viator ad was misleading. It said it covered fees that we were charged for at the airport. The trip cost double what the Viator ticket cost. For three people, that is very pricey and disappointing. It was a once in a lifetime bucket list trip so we went forward with the flight.

, Aug 2022
It was canceled due to the weather. It just happened yesterday but I'm still awaiting a refund. The pilot was nice enough to drop us off somewhere we could walk around because we had paid 50.00 for a taxi to get us there and then everything was cancelled..he did show us a few spots and had recommendations for my husband and I. But unfortunately it doesn't take the place of the airplane ride for my birthday.
No safety equipments in the plane
, Aug 2022
There was no safety jackets and parachutes for emergency happenings, so it wasn’t safe. I want to recommend company to keep safety equipments in the plane for emergency. Although ride was good.

What an amazing way to see Niagara Falls!! The view was spectacular. The staff were fantastic and informative.
What an experience !
, Jul 2022
We celebrated our anniversary with the plane tour. Even being local to the falls it was an amazing experience - views you have never seen before ! From the moment we arrived we felt so welcomed and taken care of and everything thoroughly explained to us. Our pilot was amazing and very knowledgeable! I was worried about the landing in such a small plane but I couldn’t believe how smooth it was. We had such a great time and definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for an unique experience!
Tour cancelled last minute

Thank you for taking time to review the Viator advertising and our timely customer communications with passengers. When we are forced to cancel a flight for any reason, we always offer 100% refund, or the opportunity to re-book for another date and time. In this case you were leaving Niagara that afternoon. I am sorry we did not have the opportunity to meet, and take you on the 30 minute Regional Tour of Niagara Region and Niagara Falls. We hope we have another opportunity to meet in the future. Thank you.

This is a must do. My boys loved it, they said they will remember this experience for the rest of their life. Expect to pay a total of $500.00 for a family of 3 with the additional fees. Well worth it.

Pretty good experience with my trip , never had a view like this before first time & best experience ever ✌🏻

Thank you, Jatinder, for taking time to review. Our small aircraft 30 minute tours bring passengers within 580 meters above the Falls, for a truly unique view. I am delighted the experience was the best ever! Thank you
Disappointed with no commentary and silent flight!!
, Jul 2022
We came with our 12yr old and spent over $400 hoping the experience would be fun and educational. We were accommodated at an earlier time for which we were thankful. But when we took the flight and the headphones were silent and when asked were told the audio commentary failed. We had to guess what was happening and the pilot pointed to couple of things. He said he cannot do the commentary and fly us at same time. Very very disappointed and wasteful trip. Make them check the audio and then fly.

Thank you for reviewing the automated audio portion of the tour. We would be delighted to have you as our guest again, in Fall or Winter, to enjoy the spectacular views, as the seasons change. Thank you.
Memorable experience
, Jul 2022
If you have never been in a small aircraft before, this is the best way to do it to enjoy your first time. Amazing view of the Niagara Falls region and the pilot was super friendly. Owner was an amazing person and has a passion for what he does.

Thank you for taking time to review our combination of 'small plane' experience and the amazing views of Niagara Falls Regional tour. We enjoyed having you and your family as our guest, and hopefully see you again for the Fall Colors tour in autumn, as the leaves are changing colors on the Niagara Escarpment, Provincial Parks and Lake Ontario Shoreline! Thank you!
Amazing experience but expect extra fees
, Jun 2022
Amazing experience but expect extra fees. The experience as a whole was very good: friendly staff, beautiful views and a nice sentiment of champagne and chocolate on the flight! However, expect to have to pay extra fees of more than 50% on the original price. This was disappointing for us, especially with little notice just one hour before the flight. Despite this, we enjoyed our flight and had a great time. Thank you for the experience.

Thank you, Vanessa. I'm delighted you enjoyed our flight with beautiful views of Niagara region, and had a great time. We would be happy to see you again in winter, for a whole new visual experience. Thank you,
Amazing views and service
, Jun 2022
Very friendly welcome. You can have your picture taken on your own phone with the plane.This was a private plane for 2, very intimate. Great if you do not want to share. The commentary during the flight was very informative. A little bumpy but expected. This offers amazing views of the Niagara region and the Falls. Very recommended.

Thank you, Melanie, I appreciate your very thoughtful and detailed review of the Niagara Grand Tour. It was our pleasure having you both visit with us and thank you for making us part of your Niagara vacation. Thank you.
Stunning, professional, and affordable!
, Jun 2022
This was an extremely well organized, thoughtfully prepared experience. The champagne and chocolate was lovely, the flight was smooth and stunning, and most of all both the Viator front end (Ian) and the pilot (Eddie) were kind, very friendly, and professional. I would absolutely recommend this specific booking, agency, and pilot to anyone wanting an actually affordable experience to make their loved one feel extra special. Thank you to all involved in making this a wonderful flight.

Celebrating Wife's Birthday!
, May 2022
One of the best experience for me! Had planned a surprise for my wife, loved the fact that everything was well organized and on time. Our pilot Mr. Naresh was very cordial and made us feel very relaxed and made the trip enjoyable. Will suggest that if a memorabilia can be included in this package as well, of course we clicked many pics ourselves, IDK may be a framed picture by professional cam would be the icing on the cake! Enjoyed a lot! Thanks :)
Great experience, be mindful of extra costs!
, May 2022
This experience was good. Staff was friendly and the complimentary champagne and chocolate was a nice touch. My only complaint was all of the additional fees. I paid $200 upfront and did not realize there would be an addition $150 in fees added the day of. I could have justified the 30min flight for the initial cost but $350 is a bit much!

Hi Melissa, thanks for the great review on the Air Tour and Customer Service. This 30 Minute Air Tour of Niagara Region, including Niagara Falls, is always exhilarating and fun. Regarding the Airport Improvement Fee, Fuel Supplement and 13% HST Sales Tax, these are advertised and listed in the Viator Ticket Price under "What's Included / Not Included". All fees for air service in Canada must be listed in the product advertising. Thanks Melissa.
