When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a great experience! First time for both of us on a chopper and wow was the one hour trip was incredible. It really gives you a full, immersive experience from the Kingston harbor all the way up to both castles way up the seaway. Would have been even better had we opted to do this in autumn, but doesn't take away anything from the beautiful scenery that we enjoyed. Everyone was amazing and our pilot was super personable and even though he has repeated his stories countless times, his re-telling was animated and fun.

Both of us would come back again in the future and felt the trip was full value for the price paid. Way, way better than a plane ride with an epic field of view and the takeoff/landing was super thrilling.

We had booked the Kingston City Tour & upon arrival the staff informed us that the Two Castle Tour was probably a better choice.
It was a wonderful beautiful experience, highly recommend.
The Pilot puts you at ease immediately, very, very informative & highly skilled.
Really happy we did this, it is a must - number 1 item to do in the 1000 Islands.

I booked the 20 minute 1000 Island and Boldt Castle tour as a birthday gift for my spouse and it was pretty amazing. The views were beautiful especially with the beautiful fall leaves this time of year. Our tour guide/pilot was great and so friendly making us very comfortable throughout the flight. He also gave us some good tips for future trips in the area, and recommended taking a different route back home to Ottawa via the thousand islands parkway which made the drive much more enjoyable seeing the extra views.

We just happened to book on a very rainy weekend so we were required to reschedule to the next day due to the weather and it was so worth the wait - and still amazing on a cloudy day.

It is more affordable than I thought and I would love to go back for a longer tour someday. I highly recommend this to everyone - it’s a must do!!

We took the 30 minute two castle tour. Highly recommend the longer options for tours (30m or 1h). The pilot was confident and knowledgeable on the area, she provided excellent commentary throughout the flight. The views were spectacular, it left us speechless.

Fantastic tour! Our pilot was Martine who is bilingual and very knowledgeable. She was very charismatic and made my apprehensive 10 year old feel comfortable with her jokes. She flew us over thousand islands and showed us some shipwrecks we wouldn’t have been able to see without the birds eye view. Staff was welcoming and took great care for our safety. Absolutely worth it!

The overview of the area that the pilot offered was excellent. As we flew over the area the pilot put us in situ by telling us what landmarks were around. As we got closer to Boldt castle he told us the story behind the castle which was sad but fascinating. The way he told the story painted a clear picture of how much Boldt loved his wife. While telling us the story the pilot showed us the castle from both sides of the helicopter so everyone had an good view at some point. It was beautiful. What I also was extremely happy about was the fact that the pilot was ex-Air Force so I knew we were in safe hands!

Our pilot, Bill, was friendly, informative, and readily engaged with my teenaged son in the front seat. We enjoyed multiple perspectives of the Twisted Sisters shipwrecks, Boldt Castle, Singer Castle, Millionaire’s Row, and a multitude of islands in the area. Their facility and airframes appear well-maintained and staff are warm and friendly. I’d easily recommend this tour company to anyone interested in excellent aerial views of the 1000 Islands area.

Very nice people who welcomed us and made us feel at home in their big, comfy waiting area. it was like any small airline terminal. The choppers are just outside and a short walk away. They ran on time and gave a great running commentary on what was below. Very scenic and worth every penny.

This was an awesome experience to see the area and it's landmark by helicopter. It was my grandson's 12th birthday and both our first time in a helicopter .Our pilot Brianne put us at ease with step by step procedures of take off.She guided over the landmarks and islands with her knowledge and answered all our questions.My grandson not only enjoyed the tour but also picked up some knowledge of the area.Would definitely recommend the helicopter tour to anyone visiting the area.Get a bird's eye view.
