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.

We booked a heli drop (Peak Vert) for our last day in Queenstown but sadly the weather didn’t cooperate and it was too windy for the chopper to fly safely. We were offered a reschedule but this was our only day so Fraser our guide quickly pivoted to a car shuttle. And we had the best half day - the trails are great, the views amazing, and we got over 1500m of fun flowy descending. The drive out of Skippers Canyon is very sketchy and there is no way we would want to attempt it on our own. I would highly recommend this company and I guess we’ll just have to come back!!

Hi Leah Stoked we still managed to get you guys out on some epic trails even when Mother Nature cancelled the Heli on us! Skippers Canyon Road is an experience! but hopefully next time we'll be flying out of there on the Heli to Bowen Peak rather than driving out haha Look forward to seeing you back soon Cheers

Epic fun to be had with these guys. Fraser was super knowledgeable and knew the trails we did on peak vert like the back of his hand, could give us a run down on each section before we hit it meaning we could hit it a bit harder than normal when running a trail blind.

From start to finish helibike was such an incredible experience offering the best days riding I have had on two wheels. Super friendly team and definitely would recommend to anyone that wants to see mountain biking around Queenstown through an entirely new lens.

We took on the Old Woman Range for an all day adventure and were not disappointed. Great service from pickup to drop off. The whole ride, from the Heli drop in to the guided ride out, had the perfect mix of professionalism and excitement. We got the boss himself, Henry, and new guide and Rotorua native Brook, who took care of all the logistics, so all we had to “worry” about was having a great ride. Not hard to do when descending 1.2km in vertical distance in Central Otago wilderness. Shout out to the ilabb crew who joined us at lunch and finished the ride with us, all the way to the pub!

Big thanks to the whole HeliBike crew for going above and beyond to make the day hassle free and an excellent and most memorable adventure.

Hey Chux75 Stoked you got to ride with our legend of a boss Henry! I was gutted I couldn't come guide you guys with my broken collarbone, as our Old Woman Range trip is one of my favorites! (but there's always a silver lining) I'm all healed up to take you guys out for next time though! Cheers

After having our trip cancelled in 2020 due to Covid our group of 7 finally made it down to experience the Double Down with HeliBike NZ. Our guides Peter & Amanda were amazing and informative and made the day run very smoothly. Epic backcountry riding in an epic part of NZ. Thanks to the team at HeliBike NZ for an awesome day out. We will be back!

Great fun and knowledgeable guides, and any day in a Heli is a great day. It was great to see different views of the area and amazing to see both lake Wanaka and Wakatipu at the same time. Thanks, guys
