We spent 2+ weeks in New Zealand on our honeymoon and this was the highlight of our trip. I could not recommend Over the Top enough. If i could go back and do it over again, I would have booked another tour (or two)!

Great flight to Milford Sound. I felt safe at all times. Pilot was responsible and decided on an alternative landing site when weather conditions deteriorated. Communication with the pilot over headphones was clear commentary on the geography

Fantastic experience -made even more so as it was a surprise! OTT literally! Totally worth it. Late afternoon was a superb time to do it about 5pm in December, as the light was amazing.

Superlatives do not do justice to our experience! Two of the party were disabled and required extra help. This was provided with alacrity. We all had a wonderful trip. Tony Heyes (Dr)
