Me and my son 15years old, absolutely loved it. The pilot Andy was amazing at explaining all the different venues/places belows. He was very friendly. The guy who explained all the safety guides was very friendly too. Took a photo of us in front of helicopter.

While this trip is short, it is very worthwhile as it gives you the most amazing views and aerial insights to our capital city. Travelling at speeds of around 250k per hour, you feel like you are just taking a leisurely stroll as there is no reference point to judge your speed. Great trip to use as a gift.

Our 15 min flight was actually 11 minutes. Nearly $400 for 2 of us felt like a lot of money for such a quick trip. We were seated on the wrong side of the helicopter to get the best views and if you are not in a window seat the experience is rather disappointing. I thought the flight might go round the bay one way and then back the other way so all of us could see the view. But we didn’t.
This was a trip to celebrate a birthday and left us rather deflated

We had family from WA visiting and enjoyed showing them our beautiful city. They booked the 2.30pm 15 minute flight the night prior. Paid for and confirmed. Day of flight, 4/3/19, they went to check in early and were told a flight had just left for the Wairarapa. They may get a flight at 3.30 but they wouldn't guarantee it. (When booking there was only an 11.30 and the 2.30). Very bad attitude from staff, couldn't care less. Family leaving next day so refund given. What a disgrace!

Dear Imhooper, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback to Wellington Helicopters, it is always good to hear from our customer’s perspective and we are disappointed that you feel that way. Whilst we understand your frustration at not being able to view our beautiful city with your family, we would like to explain the terms and conditions which are inherent to booking a scenic helicopter flight as well as your particular situation. Our scenic flights operate on two main variables prior to confirming the departure time – the weather conditions and having minimum passenger numbers (4 passengers) for the flight. These terms and conditions are outlined on our website and on the Viator booking page. We do our best to schedule flights to ensure they go ahead but there will be times due to either unsuitable weather conditions or lack of minimum numbers that the flights cannot proceed. We received your booking at 5.30pm (after office hours) the day before the flight through Viator for 2 passengers. We messaged you through Viator at 8.38am the following morning as soon as we opened to advise that the flight was not confirmed. We tried our best to fill the flight by delaying the departure time to allow more people to book onto it. It is unfortunate the flight did not go ahead, especially when your family was only available that day – usually if people are able to, we try to reschedule them to an alternative day and time that suits. Viator requires that we offer specific time slots for our scenic flights to enable you to make a booking, however, our flights are organised to suit demand and often bookings are adjusted to suit a mutually agreed time to ensure we meet the minimum numbers for each flight. It’s worth noting that the confirmation you received when you booked was an automatic confirmation from Viator, and we receive no payment for the flight from Viator until it is completed. We confirm manually with the client as soon as possible, which we feel we did in this instance given the time of booking and the time of our response. We thank you for your understanding of the situation and have ensured you have been fully refunded for the booking. Kind Regards, The Team at Wellington Helicopters
