Did this twice. If it were cheaper, I would have done it repeatedly everyday. Flying over the houses in Queenstown is definitely a good way to spend your time. Amazing photos from the instructor’s go-pro. Highly recommended!

My pilot was Brendan and I had the best experience. We had a clear day and you could see for miles. Well worth the money and the extra for the photos. A once in a lifetime experience.

Hi. Skippers Canyon half day tour. Absolutely amazing. Can include a jet boat element but suggest you do Buller Gorge one instead if you're in that area, as it's the best one by far.
