The whole experience was excellent from being picked up from the Hotel by Gregg, being welcomed at the office by all of the friendly staff, to a fantastic value for money guided helicopter tour of Queenstown. The pilot was knowledgeable. Definitely recommend

Breathtaking, surreal, just incredible! Mountains look great from the ground but from above? It’s a whole other world.you feel so humbled and it is really quite overwhelming being surround by such beauty. Staff and our pilot were informative and friendly. You park on top of a nosy mountain and can see the whole range surrounding you. It’s magical. You get about 10 minutes to take some really great pictures. I know these scenic tours are pricey but they’re worth every penny. The best thing I’ve ever done.

Exciting and enjoyable experience. With our safety front and centre with clear and precise instructions it waylaid any fears. The pilot was personable and gave a good running commentary of locales that were in view during the flight.

WOW, just wow... what an amazing time! Can't remember which of these trips it was that we did, but landing on the mountain and spending time standing high up in the snow taking in the stunning views over Queenstown was absolutely incredible. Our chopper pilot was highly entertaining as well. Would definitely recommend this as a must do on your visit to Queenstown. Well worth every cent!
