Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice ride over the mountain tops but would have been ideal if the pilot could speak more clearly to hear the spots he called out. It was not a technical issue but his verbal. And, one couple brought a water bottle and we were told to not do so -- too bad they put it in the snow at the glacier top and it showed up in the pics.

This was our first helicopter ride, and we are sold! Our pilot, Luke M. was knowledgeable, kind and competent. Being able to disembark on an isolated hilltop and a glacier was unique and unforgettable. Flying over ridges, glacial lakes, and waterfalls brought a new appreciation of the beauty of the Southern Alps in New Zealand. Thank you!

Our knowledgeable chopper pilot, Jezza, first flew us around the area pointing out the features and places of interest. He then flew up to Mt Larkins on to a snow filled basin. What an awesome experience, climbing out on to snow where there were no previous footprints. And we got to takeaway a great photo of ourselves on the snow, by the helicopter at very reasonable price. Thank you to the team at The Helicopter Line for a great experience.

Trip highlight! So well organised and worth every dollar, check the weather and book for a clear day - spectacular! Our pilot chose a spot with some snow for the kids to play and they absolutely loved it. Highly recommend!!

We chose this helicopter flight over the Queenstown area as it appeared to give the best value for money. The previous day, we had planned a trip over Fox glacier but unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate. This service came recommended by our travel guide and we weren’t disappointed.
We had door to door pick up and return via minibus to our accommodation which was prompt and friendly.
After our safety briefing, and with perfect, calm weather, we were strapped in for our adventure, 1.5 km above Queenstown.
Our pilot gave a running commentary of what could be seen all around us and reassuringly gave plenty of notice of his manoeuvres so that there were no surprises.
Landing in the snow at this time of the year was a treat we will never forget. It was soft and powdery, as we sunk up to our knees and laughed so much it hurt until we found firmer footings. There was about 10 minutes of “magic time” to take photos and to try to absorb the breathtaking vistas that totally surrounded us.
A quick reshuffle of seating was organised to share photo opportunities for our return journey back to the airport.
Optional souvenir photos were available to purchase from the reception area upon our return.
It may be a comparatively short flight, but it certainly lived up to the advertised promise and provided a “grand view” of the Queenstown basin topography.

Kia Ora, Thanks so much for your wonderful, 5-star review. We're glad you were able to visit us after a weather day in Fox Glacier. The views above Queenstown are spectacular. It sounds like you had a wonderful flight and pretty special to see snow this time of year. Thank you for joining us in Queenstown. We hope you get to see the West Coast glaciers on your next South Island visit. Kindest regards, The Helicopter Line

Simply stunning. Scenery is beyond belief and all staff from the courtesy driver through to our pilot Danny were just awesome! Views were spectacular and didn't feel rushed on either of the 2 landings. Plenty of photo opportunities. And felt safe at all times. Thank you Helicopter Line for this experience.

We absolutely loved this tour. Bill was great, really hard to hear him speak bc you're in a helicopter but didn't matter - the views and experience in whole was just fantastic. He landed us on a alpine lake and at the sea - just breath-taking. Make sure to take motion sickness medicine before if you're not used to the belly drops.
