If you are nature which trip to take we recommend the Glacier Tour and Mt Aspiring. Land on the glacier, take amazing photos and have fun. Peter drove us out and about with great commentary and took our photos. Thanks also for the Admin team who really looked after us.

Best part of our trip was the helicopter ride from Queenstown. First time in a helicopter and it was spectacular- we landed on a mountain and we were on top of the world.

Took my two sons for a flight and it was brilliant. Hamish was our pilot - he was smooth on the controls and placed the helicopter nicely so we could all get a good view. Highly recommend this professional company and the services they offer.
