      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.

      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.

      Fantastic tour of queenstown via helicopter by Over The Top…..
      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!

      OMG!!! What a ride. We were not sure if we could go up because of the weather. But…when we arrived we were cleared. Our pilot Hamish, was a pleasure. He pointed out everything. The glacial areas, the snow topped peaks and a herd of Chamois. We had a light rain and spotty clouds but a smooth ride. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

    INCREDIBLE! To be taken to areas that are so untouched is just breathtaking. Pilot Michael was so knowledgeable on the areas we went and made everyone feel so safe. Experience from as soon as you check in is 5*. Would do this a million times over!

    Would have to say this was the highlight of our Queenstown trip. Right from the snow landing to the delicious BBQ lunch and little exploration of the grounds at the high country stone cottage. James is a great pilot and tour guide and really made the trip. Nothing was an issue. The entire experience was very professional and I would totally recommend Over the Top helicopter tours if you are looking to do something special.

    Our pilot Michael was exceptional. He shared alot of knowledge with us & was not in a hurry to get back, therefore we had extra time. We felt in completely good hands & Michael was so relaxed. You could tell he loved what he does. So amazing landing in the snow & incredible views. We were so lucky as the morning couldnt of been better. This was absolutely the highlight of our trip & a must do. We can definitely highly recommend "Over the top Helicoptors"

    First class service from the first phone call to the actual flight from OTT.
    Thanks to Pedro, Steve & pilot Renee - they made a fabulous experience even better.
    We were lucky to land in pristine snow after a fresh snowfall and our pilot ensured we landed in the best possible spot - it was breathtaking with lots of photo opportunities and plenty of time allowed to take in the magical scenery.
    Would definitely recommend this company and look forward to booking the Milford Sound experience when we are next in Queenstown.

    This was the highlight of our visit to Queenstown. From the moment we arrived and met Katie at reception to taking off with our pilot Michael, we felt safe....and excited. The climb up over the ridge to land on the top in the snow was exhilarating. The view from the ridge overlooking Queenstown was spectacular and taking off to head back was even more breathtaking. Michael was full of great information and we were still buzzing about our flight hours afterwards. A must do in Queenstown

    The weather did not allow our flight to take off first thing but the team worked around our day to make our flight happen, they kept us in the loop by letting us know when they would call and keeping to that time.

    The exoerience itself was fantastic, great flight, awesome views and a Steve landed us in snow with a bit of sun so we were comfortable. He was great with giving us info of the area and keeoing our son safe as well.

    Cannot recommend this company enough. Various package options given. We picked to have the helicopter to ourselves as we were 4 already. Everything was explained in detail. On the day we received a call (which I missed) followed by a text to let us know weather was good for the flight & what time we should show for check in. Once there welcomed by Pedro who checked us in, explained how the trip would go. Then our pilot showed explained where we would go on the map did a quick safety briefing and we were off. The helicopter was spacious & beautifully maintained. Once we were buckled in we were off. Seven minutes later we landed in an untouched location with fresh snow. Nothing can describe the experience. The pilot took so many photos for us and explained where we were and answered all our questions. Definitely great value for money & would recommend for a special once in a lifetime experience.

    Our party of five (including one with mobility issues) had an amazing flight this morning.

    We had updates over the preceding days regarding the weather and where we would be flying and always felt that OTT were thinking of us.

    The flight itself was on a beautiful day around the mountains surrounding Queenstown. Highlights were every single part of the experience. René catered for all of our requirements (mobility issues, first time flyers and some scared of heights)!
