The best you could do in Queenstown
Aug 2021 • Couples
First time on a helicopter, and I think, so far, the best one that we'll ever experience!
Beautiful views and very educated and friendly pilot that was showing us around (unfortunately forgot his name). Milford Sound was beautiful, all people and capitain are very friendly. Experience that you should feel at least once in your life.
We went on 9th of August, the best thing to do before level 4 lockdown 😀

Incredible experience of a life time - helped my partner to propose.
My partner organised this as a surprise. We were picked up at our hotel (which is included in the price) - all on time & prompt. Once there they discreetly weighed each person when you arrived. They noticed I was nervous and helped comforted me. Our pilot was Alfie. He made me feel safe and the flight to Milford sound was incredible & scenic. He spoke to us pointing out spots & explaining everything. He took some great photos too. After the cruise at Milford (which was also incredible) we flew back. On the way home we had a snow landing. This was incredible. At this spot my partner proposed and Alfie was an amazing photographer getting some incredible photos. My partner had spoken to the staff prior and they let the Alfie know so that he was ready to video for us. Just an incredible experience , I can not fault it at all! Thanks Alfie for making our experience one we will never forget!

Glacier Landing, Milford Sounds and West Coast Beach
May 2021
We have never been in a helicopter before and it was the most incredible experience! Matt, the pilot was totally awesome - he made our trip great fun and very educational. The team on the ground, were responsive, friendly and professional.

We loved the glacier landing, trip to Milford Sounds and the West Coast beach. Magic!

We would love to fly with you again and we highly recommend you!

Thanks for the great flight.

“Out the gate!” - amazing flight
Wow.... what an experience. We had a rough start weather wise earlier in the week trying to get up for a flight to a glacier and the beautiful mountains and Milford Sound. The team at Glacier Southern Lakes kept us up to date every day while we travelled the district and on our second to last day we hit the jackpot weather wise. We were met by an awesome ground staff who cared about us and made us and the other passengers feel welcome and safe. Jeremy our amazing and super experienced pilot flew us on an amazing trip from QT up the Wakatipu lake over the mountains and into the Lord of Rings filming sites, landing on a glacier for photos and a possible snow fight and then onto the mighty Milford sound and back again. It was simply breath taking. Thanks so much and we absolutely loved it.
