We had the most awesome flight and trip up to Cape Reinga. Communication was excellent as our trip was delayed a day. We were fortunate enough to just have ourselves and Sam our Pilot. Great commentary with excellent information and stories about the area. Our son particularly loved being able to sit in the front with Sam. Thank you again Sam for making it such a great trip. Was awesome to meet you !

WOW!!! What an amazing flight. We've been coming to Paihia for the past 6yrs 4-5 times a year and this time we decided to do the helicopter. I soo wish we'd done it sooner. Thank you guys. We loved it

Words can't describe the beautiful views you get on this scenic flight, we're so pleased we did it. Our pilot Sam was brilliant and gave a great commentary pointing out things and places of interest and was happy to answer any questions we had. At this time of year it's just a scenic flight right to the top of the cape and back which we loved as you get to see the lighthouse from the air which gives a totally different perspective from seeing it from the ground. If you're heading North would definately recommend this trip, even our two kids can't stop raving about it.

What a fantastic & efficient way to see Cape Reinga. The scenery was spectacular, the flight smooth, & awesome commentary by Sam along the way. The whole family enjoyed the experience - it was a quite something to see all the teenagers staring out the window instead of down at their phones! Highly recommend it.

Wonderful to hear the whole family appreciated the scenery and experience of our tour, it certainly is a beautiful part of New Zealand worth seeing and we love it that kiwis are taking in views from above they wouldn't otherwise be able to see.
