      Don't Um or Ah, DO IT!!
      A definite must do when in Franz Josef. Well worth it. Views were amazing and Dion was a fantastic pilot who made you feel as if you could touch the glaciers, thats how close we got to view going up the glaciers. Unfortunately on our day weather conditions didn't permit us to land, but still worth the flight. Very friendly staff and were all great with being very safety conscious and interactive.

      Amazing
      Our trip was amazing. It all started with an extremely helpful crew. The chopper was fantastic. Views and landing were spectacular. I proposed to my lady and the crew helped with the secret and filming it. We will be back for an anniversary.

      The best plot of our story! 🫶🏻💍❤️
      The experience was the most memorable experience of our lives me and my fiance. The staff members and the pilot were very supportive when my boyfriend (now fiance) secretly told his plan that he would propose. They made adjustments to make it more private and the pilot captured that once-in-a-lifetime moment. They said that was the least that they could but for us, it was way more being what was expected and more personal for us!!! We are so glad that we booked the flight with the right people in it. I'm telling you guys, whoever gets to read this, book with them if you want to have a blast and great experience of your West Coast Trip!!! GCH will serve you with a heart! 🫶 Thank you, Glacier Country Helicopters!! 🫶🥰😍🫶

      The team went out of there way to make this happen. Having a whiskey on the snow was incredible. Wouldn't book with anyone else. Dion did an amazing job and was very informative.

      10 out of 10
      A really magnificent experience. Everything from the reception to the safety briefing the flight, glacier landing, and the pilot was above expectation. The information during the flight was brilliant and nothing could be as spectacular as the scenery experienced. Overall a 10 out of 10.

      Great Way to Explore the Glaciers
      The tour company was great to work with. They contacted us to offer moving us to an earlier time which allowed us to see the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers in the morning light. Beautiful. Our pilot Poppy was awesome, flying us over the mountain ranges and glaciers telling us the names as she went. We had a great spot to land and take pictures. The outfitter provided us with a souvenir picture on the glacier for a small fee. Would highly recommend this tour.

      Amazing helicopter flight
      Fabulous experience! I was very nervous about going in an helicopter but our pilot Dion was brilliant - such a smooth flight to the glacier. Beautiful sunny day made for stunning views. The flight was the highlight of our trip to NZ!! Highly recommend this small family owned business.

      Best Heli Flight Experience ever!
      We booked this tour since it included a landing on the Glacier. Original time was 09:30, however there were some clouds not allowing the original flight time. The whole thing was handled highly professional and we got re.scheduled to the afternoon. Clouds opened up and off we went. Dion was our pilot and his comments and explanations were great. He helped us to take pictures and all of us truly enjoyed every moment. Fantastic scenery, great pilot, safe aircraft, all was perfect. We did Heli flights before, amongst them also the Grand Canyon, the Great Ocean Road, the Iguazu Waterfalls and some other places but this was by far the best we have done! Thanks to the whole team, you made our experience unforgettable!

      Magical, Etheral and Amazing
      This is truly one of life's great journeys. Even though the weather was against us and we didn't get to the 3 glaciers because of cloud cover, our pilot Deon skillfully took us up to the top of the Tasman Glacier and gently nestled his chopper onto the ice. It felt so surreal to step out and walk or should I say slide our way on the ice above the clouds at the top of the glacier and this should be a 'must do' trip for anyone visiting this part of NZ. The whole flight there and back gave us the most amazing scenery. Deon was very informative with his commentary and as I was sitting beside him I was able to ask questions. It is also special that this is a family run business and the courtesy extended to their guests is above and beyond. My only suggestion is that some sort of spike or special rubber grips to slip over your shoes be provided so that you can comfortably walk on the ice. Thanks again for a truly magical experience, one that I will never forget and will highly recommend

      Out of this world experience
      We can’t recommend this highly enough! It blew both our minds and exceeded our very high expectations. Glacier Country Helicopters is a very professional outfit with great staff. If this is something you want to do (and I highly recommend you do!) you should prepare to be flexible. The weather is unpredictable and you want to be in a position where you can rebook, if you need to.

    It was out of this world. The scenery can only be experienced first hand. Totally recommend this family run business if you're thinking of taking a trip to the glacier in Franz Josef.
    Really enjoyed our pilot Poppy. Thank you for being informative and entertaining 🙂

    We have done a lot of travel in the last 20 years, both within Australia and overseas. This was one of the most amazing things that we have ever done. Great service, friendly staff and a wonderfully knowledgeable, experienced pilot. The two landings on glaciers were memorable - walking around on powder snow with spectacular views in all directions. Simply exhilarating!

    We had an absolutely amazing experience today celebrating our Wedding Anniversary on a Heli flight over Tasman & Franz Josef Glaciers and a stunning 15 min snow landing. We also viewed Mt Cook & Mt Tasman.
    Thanks to the wonderful Aaron & Nicole and Dion.
    We were even surprised with a glass of bubbly.
    Thoroughly recommend Glacier Country Helicopters!

    I cannot thank all of the GCH team enough for the wonderful, exhilarating experience of flying with Glacier Country Helicopters on May 1st doing the 60 minute Supreme flight. Right from the time of booking with Megan, through the check in process with(???sorry I forgot the big guy's name), the informative, laugh a minute bustrip with Aaron out to the landing field and then the actual flight, snow landings, informative insights & photoshoots with Dion were all fantastic and added up to a 110% experience.
    The flight price was great value for money, especially compared to other flights I have done, but the big thing is that I was made to feel welcome and part of the family. The souvenir photo and folder that Dion did while were on the snow was a wonderful extra momento of the time spent and the experience had. I was blessed to have chosen that day & time for my flight, as that night and for two days after it just rained & rained. Through this experience, I made a couple of wonderful new friends in Aaron(GCH) & Nicole. I would & will thoroughly recommend G.C.H. to all who are heading in that direction to stay & sight see and make sure you see that beautiful part of the world. 'from above' with GCH....Yours sincerely....Phil Thomson.
