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.

Spectacular day beginning with a stop on top of snow capped mountains then on to Milford sound for a cruise. This was followed by a trip back over the mountains and a stop below a glazier. Our pilot was brilliant and gave us a thorough narrative throughout the trip. A beautiful lunch provided with an overall experience we won’t forget. .

Sonya & Nick at Heliworks Queenstown went above & beyond to sort out a Milford Sound helicopter flight experience for me at short notice after another company couldn’t deliver what was paid for 6 months in advance. Sonya, Nick & the whole team at Heliworks are such great people & you can see their passion for showing people their little part of the world from above. Cannot thank them enough for the personalised experience, if we ever get back to New Zealand & Queenstown i would definitely use them again & take the whole family.

TLDR: This company is worth booking and I cannot recommend them enough. Professional, highly capable with great knowledge.
We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the airfield and the driver was absolutely lovely. We went through a safety brief and were introduced to the pilot. Ed the Pilot was exceptional while flying and had a rich knowledge of the area and its history. We landed in the most stunning location with a lovely waterfall to have a picnic. We did not eat as we were so happy exploring around the area until we left.

Visiting Milford Sound was the most anticipated part of my holiday and I was not disappointed. Booking Heliworks made the experience even more special and it was worth every penny. The helicopter pilot, Craig was knowledgeable and went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. The modern helicopter was comfortable, with large windows to enjoy the scenery.

The cruise was peaceful and amongst the glorious waterfalls, we had pods of dolphins swimming beside the boat, saw penguins playing, and seals sunning themselves on the rocks. Lunch was included and we were the envy of the other passengers. Popping our half bottle of champagne while eating our gourmet lunch finished off the day beautifully.

The Check-in and Booking staff were really friendly as was the driver who collected us from our hotel. Helicopter pilot was great, some commentary and typical relaxed kiwi. However, for the money we paid I expected to not just fly from the base to the nearest mountain with snow on it which was in view of the helicopter base and then fly back. From what I had read and the pictures on line I thought we would at least have a scenic flight around the mountains landing somewhere within the remarkables. Our scenic experience was basically Arrowtown and some housing estates before landing on a mountain and we took the same route back. Honestly, I would have preferred to have spent the money on another activity.

We can thoroughly recommend these guys! We took a trip last month to Milford Sound which included two incredible landings. Our pilot, Eddie, was a top guy and such an incredible pilot- I never once felt unsafe or uneasy. We are using them for our post-wedding photos also. You won't find a better team in Queenstown!
