Where are we going today?

Have you ever wanted to feel like a bird flying across the world? Well, a helicopter is an experience which feels pretty close to that!

Rainbow Air Helicopter Tours is a great experience for the family, which will really give you an unforgettable experience.

Imagine flying over the mighty Niagara Falls - looking at those crashing waters far below you, whilst looking out across to the horizon and New York State! You also get really close to the falls as Rainbow Air Helicopter Tours get really low and close to those incredible sites so you can get the best photos and experiences!

Throughout the whole flight you will never lose sight of that incredible Niagara River.  Kids will love looking at the Upper Niagara River descending to those mighty rushing rapids!

If you really love the tour and have the time, you can take part in their extended tours. Here, after viewing the falls and all the surrounding sights, you can head north following the Lower Niagara River.  Here, you can experience the incredible World Class 5 Rapids (Better experiencing them from the air and not from the water!)

You get to experience two of the WORLD'S largest Hydro-Electric plants and look across to Canada and some of their amazing sites too! 

Niagara Falls is one of the most famous and popular sites in the country, and you can see why! Kids will love hearing the loud thumping sound of all that water flowing over the edge, and LOVE zooming through the sky high and low. It's such a difference experience to being in a plane, and one that kids will never forget!

    What a great way to see the falls! From start to finish professionalism. Great crew & staff. Pat the manager was the best. I did this with an old army friend I haven't seen in 25 years. We were both blown away by the views! If you have a bucket list add this to it!!! Thanks Pat & crew. See you guys next summer...

    Cost is $85. If you are not visiting Canadian side this is the bext best thing to do. Lot of fun. Especially if you are from India dont miss this. Ask for Pat Proctor. I'd highly recommend you do this ride

    They charge $85 if paying by credit card, $80 cash. I have never been to the Canadian side, but if you are staying in the US all the time, I'd highly recommend you do this ride. It is worth the money, they have a pretty decent-sized chopper that seats 4 people. The views that you get from high up above are simply spectacular. If you can go in on a clear day, like we lucked out, this is a very enjoyable ride. The guys are very helpful taking pictures with the chopper in the background and all. The headsets we received were merely noise shutters,...Read More

    We came here on our honeymoon this week. Yesterday my husband called to make a reservation for today but we were told it's a first come, first serve basis so we figured we could come at any time during the day. We arrive at 3pm to find the business is closed. Hoping they were on a tour, we waited around but decided to ask the neighboring business (Three Sisters) if they knew anything. She explained if Rainbow doesn't have business early upon opening, then they close up & go home. I wouldn't be so let down if this wasn't the only helicopter tour...Read More

The headsets we received were merely noise shutters, no audio commentary on it. But again, its not like you miss anything, because you are so spell-bound by the views. Only drawback was that it lasts all of 7-8 minutes. 15 would have been great, but still, this one is highly recommended.

The pamphlet says open daily at 9am, but they fail to mention they may close due to slow business. I'll be sure to have my passport next time.
