Hands down one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had the pleasure of doing. Many thanks to Brad, Shannon, Pedro, Choppy and the team for providing a professional experience from the moment you walk through the door. Brad went the extra mile stopping in some of the most remote locations on our way to and from Milford Sound.... More

This was absolutely the highlight of our trip! I would definitely recommend anyone who is visiting Queenstown to do this. We had a Picnic on A Peak and it was more than worth it! The picnic was delicious and the views were so unreal, it was such an amazing experience.

We booked this in advance before visiting queenstown. Had to wait for really nice weather first and luckily, the day was so perfect we got to land on the remarkables, have a picnic lunch ALONE, and enjoy the amazing views of this region. All the staff were informative, friendly and accommodating. The picnic lunch was huge, we would have lasted... More

My son and partner booked Over the Top on Saturday 11 Feb for their Wedding. We had 2 helicopters to the Ridge in Queenstown and the whole experience was magic. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. They made the whole experience brilliant. Would Highly recommend this company. Thanks guys you were awesome!

My partner and I were over in Queenstown for our honeymoon and as an avid golfer I thought we must give Over The Top Golf a try after seeing images on google. It was an amazing experience! My partner doesn't play golf but even she gave it a go and loved it! The view and scenery is spectacular and the... More

This is one of the most memorable experiences! It really is a once in lifetime opportunity. This is the most extraordinary way to view the Milford sound and surrounding mountains. We took the Milford Ultimate trip-and it was worth it! Our Pilot Dan, is very experienced, we felt safe the whole time. In addition he is very knowledgeable about the... More

This was an amazing trip. The pilots Dan and Jim(?) were terrific. The boat trip to Milford Sound was nice but the helicopter flight is what made the trip. They offered to do a helicopter tour of the sound and in retrospect we should have done that! It was great

This was out first heli experience and every moment was amazing. We met Dan and Shannon when we entered the office and knew this was going to be a fantastic experience. Dan was very calm, and walked us through the route he planned for us en route to Milford Sound. We sat up front and it was much smoother than... More
