      Magical trip with a great pilot
      Davey (our pilot) was I credibly knowledgeable and friendly whilst also making us feel safe and explaining how the pilots use their experience and knowledge of the area to ensure all flights are as smooth as possible and always with safety at the top of the agenda. It was a great trip and we even got to play a bit of impromptu golf off the top of one landing spots . Would not hesitate to recommend this trip and company.

      A must do in New Zealand. Beautiful, comfortable helicopters with talented pilots.
      We had excellent weather to start. We felt extremely safe flying with Hamish who flew over spectacular heights with outstanding views. The glacier stop with a beautiful calm and stunning beauty then an awesome fly over New Zealand's steep mountain face thrilled us all. The cruise gave us a calm 2 hours viewing the majestic beauty of the fjord and mountains at water level. Seals and birds added to the excellent commentary as we learned about the area.

      Once in a lifetime trip!!!
      AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING trip!!! One of the best things I have ever done. Did it as a family of 4 - views were absolutely incredible and managed to stop at the top of one of the mountains and throw some snowballs. The pilot (Choppy) was great, so good with the kids - even gave them free peanut butter sandwichs!

      Missed the boat
      Our scheduled Milford Sound landing was cancelled because of weather there. Instead we landed at a glacial lake and on a beach, where we sipped champagne. We think this was a better trip than the boat cruise would have been.

      Must do when in Queenstown
      The views were amazing! Our pilot Liu was very informative He gave us insights on the towns and mountains when while we were passing them. We had 15 minutes on the mountain to walk around and take heaps of photos. The helicopter was shut down so it was serene and peaceful on the Top.The entire experience was excellent from the start till the end. Would definitely recommend Over the Top Helicopters.

      A Queenstown must do!
      We did this helicopter tour as part of our honeymoon and it will go down as one of my most memorable travel experiences! Our pilot, Davy, is from a family that has been in the area for generations and I was pleasantly surprised by how much commentary he was able to offer about the history and landscape of the area. The views are actually remarkable! We had a travel agent book the experience so didn't know we'd be making landings until we were on the tour. I highly recommend it so you can get some fresh air and take in the locations from the ground also. This was an all around great way to see places that typically require a day trip or significant hiking.

      Absolutely fantastic. Davey explained all our views of the mountains and lakes etc. we landed twice on snow and by a lake . We took time at each place to take pictures, walk around and take in the spectacular views. Highly recommend.

      Highlight of a highlight-packed month in NZ
      One of the highlights of a highlight-packed month in New Zealand. Hamish was a friendly, calm, and competent pilot who took us over spectacular scenery, accompanied us on the Milford Sound cruise, and then landed on an alpine lake on the way back to Queenstown. We have seen a lot of beautiful vistas from the hiking trails and enjoyed seeing them from the air We were novice helicopter riders so we didn’t know what to expect. Now we’re ready to do it again!

      Beautiful Helicopter Tour - Can't Wait to do Again!
      We had a fantastic flight with Phil and Over the Top. Phil was top notch in not only in his piloting skills but also in his tour and pointing out all the amazing features of the landscape. We made two landings and enjoyed both equally - somehow with staggeringly different verandas in only a matter of 20 minutes. We will certainly do another tour next time we're back!

    One of the highlights of our time in NZ, would 100% recommend! We had booked the Queenstown Memories trip for a shared helicopter but unfortunately there were not enough people for it to go ahead but they were super accommodating and we upgraded to a private Remarkables tour that same morning which I thought was a bit extravagant but it was definitely worth it, one of the coolest things I've ever done! Our pilot was super friendly and knowledgable and though it was just a short helicopter ride the experience was so fun and the views from where we landed were just insane.

    While in Queenstown I was lucky enough to do the Over The Top Golf experience.... From Start to finish the experience was excellent and I highly recommend it to golfers of any level. Our pilot Rene was that good and the weather so still I had to book somthing again for the next day but this time for our family of 4.
    Our 2 girls had never been on a Helicopter before (ages 5 and almost 3) And the team at OTT recommended the Remarkables Discovery.
    Again Rene took us on a brilliant trip... Played cheif photographer and Snow collector for the girls who had an absolute blast and still keep talking about their helicopter trip in Queenstown.

    Huge thank you to Louisa, Victoria, Pedro and Rene You guys Rock!

    From start to finish this experience was incredible!

    A few days prior to our booking Victoria was proactive in contacting us to sort a better time weather wise to make sure we could complete the flight. With the new time close after our arrival into Queenstown the team were more than happy to pick us up from the airport for a timely departure.

    The whole crew were friendly and knowledgable making the experience the best it could be. We had plenty of time to take photos and soak up the incredible views from Cecil peak with a smooth flight to and from thanks to Stephen.

    They even dropped us at our accomodation afterwards - talk about over the top service!

    All in all a must do experience made even better by the awesome team - big thanks in particular to Victoria, Stephen and Pablo for their true over the top service! 10/10

    Will be back to try out this golf experience!

    The really knowledgable pilot gave us so much information about the area. We felt through all the bookings and communication emails that we already knew the staff at OTT. They were so on point with thier excellent communiation. Once we were in the air they started making everything so special and it was a thrilling experience. Most of all if you are a nervous flyer - dont worry you are in such good hands as they are are so skilled - top notch pilots. The helicopters also were well maintained and felt so clean and brand new. We thouroughly enjoyed the sense of humour of the two poilots who looked after us - Thanks OTT for making this a memorable experience for my family.

    Amazing time! The staff are fantastic and even though our trip was delayed due to low cloud, they updated us at the earliest with a new flight time.
    The ground staff and pilot were great, very informative and we didn't feel rushed at any point in time, even though their schedule was pushed out for the whole day.
    Very professional and I would rate this business over some of the slightly cheaper flights. Worth the extra!
    Thanks so much Over The Top - you made my husband's birthday very special!
