We were recommended Over the Top Helicopters for a unique honeymoon experience. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and engaging and made us feel like a valued client. The picnic hamper was amazing and the champagne was yummy. However, the real thrill was being flown in a modern comfortable squirrel helicopter to the top of Cecil Peak, and being left alone to enjoy endless views on a beautiful sunny day. This is an experience that we will never forget. Thank you OTT Helicopters.

Amazing experience and would do it again in a heartbeat! Our pilot Rene was great, he recommended a couple of nice spots to land. It wasn’t cold and we were shielded by the rocks for the light wind on one side at the time, so more than comfortable throughout. Our Champagne picnic hamper provided was impressive and delicious, we couldn’t finish it all, including the beers that went untouched. From start to finish we were very happy with everything and highly recommend.

While in Queenstown I was lucky enough to do the Over The Top Golf experience.... From Start to finish the experience was excellent and I highly recommend it to golfers of any level. Our pilot Rene was that good and the weather so still I had to book somthing again for the next day but this time for our family of 4. Our 2 girls had never been on a Helicopter before (ages 5 and almost 3) And the team at OTT recommended the Remarkables Discovery. Again Rene took us on a brilliant trip... Played cheif photographer and Snow collector for the girls who had an absolute blast and still keep talking about their helicopter trip in Queenstown. Huge thank you to Louisa, Victoria, Pedro and Rene You guys Rock!

Thanks so much for the kind words and for taking the time to post a review. We are very lucky to be able to show off our beautiful back yard from above and we're glad you were able to be a part of it, and for the record, the girls are a great shot with a snowball! Warm regards, The Over The Top Family

From start to finish this experience was incredible! A few days prior to our booking Victoria was proactive in contacting us to sort a better time weather wise to make sure we could complete the flight. With the new time close after our arrival into Queenstown the team were more than happy to pick us up from the airport for a timely departure. The whole crew were friendly and knowledgable making the experience the best it could be. We had plenty of time to take photos and soak up the incredible views from Cecil peak with a smooth flight to and from thanks to Stephen. They even dropped us at our accomodation afterwards - talk about over the top service! All in all a must do experience made even better by the awesome team - big thanks in particular to Victoria, Stephen and Pablo for their true over the top service! 10/10 Will be back to try out this golf experience!

Having waited 20 years to do this, we weren’t disappointed. From the time of booking, communication was great. This is a very professional company, friendly and approachable. Don’t have a late breakfast! The platter was outstanding but just weren’t hungry. We spent 2 hours, just taking it in. Fabulous! Am keen to get back and do it again..
