We did the Milford Ultimate Experience with friends from Germany. One of our friends had never been in a helicopter before and although initially apprehensive ,was quickly convinced that this is the ultimate way to travel. The first stop was lunch at Lake Erskine where we had a very tasty picnic of local cheeses, meats and pickles accompanied by fresh... More

My wife and I were recommended Over the Top Helicopters and have to say we were not disappointed. Friendly, helpful staff, superb pilots and great "gear". Landed on the Jura glacier in our Eurocopter. Chopper Dan was informative during our flight and knew his stuff. Simply memorable , a trip where memories were made. Stephen McIvor

We took a 1.5 hour flight from Queenstown over the glaciers and Milford Sound. We landed on a glacier and had the most spectacular views with perfect weather. Our pilot was very informative and the trip went above our expectations. I would highly recommend this company. The experience was truly amazing... even our 13 year old boys were impressed!

Today my wife and I had the ultimate Queenstown experience and took a scenic helicopter trip the top of a mountain for a Fergburger. The pilot James was a brilliant guide and and made the whole trip incredible. The best way of seeing the town and avoiding the queues at Fergburger.

I beg you, please do this. It was an amazing way to see the incredible beauty of Queenstown and beyond. Our helicopter picked us up near the hotel and flew us around the mountain tops. We landed on top of a mountain next to a clear uninhabited lake. You are completely alone and feel like you are on top of... More

This is a must do if your in Queenstown and have the time and resources to visit Milford Sound with this chopper operator. First class chopper and pilot - couldn't have been a better trip - but check the weather.

Highly recommended to all! Daniel our pilot was extremely knowledgeable about the area and we learned so much. The trip to Milford was breathtaking. We stopped for a few hits of golf off a glacier which was a simply surreal experience. A+++
