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)!

Thank you, we appreciate your feedback, It was certainly a pleasure having you both on board with us and sharing our beautiful backyard!
Will share your kind words with our pilots and we look forward to welcoming you back to fly with us again soon!
