An Amazing Tour of Niagara Falls

Vinnie, awesome tour guide. The word awesome says it all. Helicopter was down til after the clouds cleared up and he made sure to show us extra sites til the helicopter was ready to fly. We were leaving town the next day and we pulled up beside him at the light. And said our goodbyes. Best thing was. It was ugly out the morning we left. 1/4 inch of ice and he was out showing a tour. That's called dedication. Thumbs up to you Vinnie. See you next year.


Canadian Horseshoe Falls with Niagara Helicopters

Helicopter tours are not something we usually do, but I am so glad we decided to book the Niagara Falls private tour with a helicopter. We were given complete details upon arriving there and the staff was wonderful. Helicopter rides can be kind of scary but we were measured and all the safety measures were taken. Niagara Parks' mighty falls and the Niagara River were marvelous to see from the air. We had a spectacular view of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.
