    Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
    Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
    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.

    The trip was amazing! I had one free day in Wellington and went straight from the airport coming from the US to the pier where the helicopters were. The people working there were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I got to see fur seals, talk to the pilot a lot, and overall had the best experience. If anyone is visiting Wellington or lives there that has not done this it is an absolute MUST DO!!

    Solid outfit, good equipment and an excellent team. Out Pilot, Adam, provided a great experience and my "rotary wing shy" wife ended up really enjoying the experience.

    Amazing views of around Wellington from a completely different perspective. Dai was very friendly and made you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Was a few bumps as you’d expect from Windy welly but overall a smooth ride.

    Only thing was my overwhelming feeling of sickness and disappointment when I got home and found a Grab one deal for champagne, brunch and the flight for two people for much cheaper than what I had paid - gutted!

    My husband booked a special flight for a bday gift for me and my two eldest daughters and some friends. He especially organised pick up and drop off from our rural property. The whole experience was just incredible. Flying up transmission gully and down along coast to the south where we landed and saw the seals then flew back over Eastbourne and the Belmont hills. Our pilot gave us a great commentary and made us all feel very special. Beats magazines and hand cream as a bday present any day. Thanks so much for making my first helicopter ride such a memorable one

    Great to hear that your birthday flight was a success. It was a great afternoon for flying! Unfortunately your husband has now raised the bar significantly for the rest of us lol ;) It was our pleasure to fly you ladies, and hopefully create some happy memories. Cheers Dai

    I have wanted to do a helicopter ride for decades and came close the last time we were in Wellington about 7 years ago. At the time, my partner did not want to join me, so I decided not to go alone.

    This time, my brother and sister-in-law bought us gift certificates for two people as a thank you gift for paying their way for this trip. Finally, I was going to be able to make a dream come true.

    Prior to going out to the helicopter, we had a briefing on safety and received life jackets for the over water part of the tour. Our pilot was Andy was so kind and caring, making sure each of us was using our multiple seat belts properly before we took off. None of us seemed to need any calming, but his calm nature could soothe anyone who may have had apprehension.

    What Andy did that I really appreciated is he suggested two of us who were in the second row move up front on the way back from the coast.

    This was one of the great experiences of my life and having traveled to 74 countries, I have had some really great experiences.

    If this is on your bucket list, these are the people to help you check it off.

    A wonderful combination of great Wellington weather, professional and friendly service, a classy helicopter, and superb views of Wellington City and the Southern coast from above - an unbeatable experience!!! Preparation for the flight involved careful well paced explanation of safety procedures which instilled confidence in the pilot and ground crew. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the flight and highly recommend it to others. Thanks you staff at GCH Aviation Wellington Helicopters.
