Right from the start of booking our flight with Sylvie we knew we were in good hands! Positive, professionail, friendly service. We were booked to fly on Wednesday however the weather wasn’t the greatest so we were able to move it to Friday, glad we did! Charlie was our pilot, very professional with a top personality and great sense of humour. My fiancé, our son and myself chose to fly from Nelson landing in Awaroa near the lodge for lunch. We enjoyed a nice walk while there and some time/swim on the beach before flying back to Nelson. Beautiful flight, stunning views, we felt safe the entire time. We all thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend Helicopters Nelson. We will definitely return. Thanks guys!

Our trip out with Toby was superb. Even the views from the hill top heliport were stunning before we started but once we were airborne for our mountain top trip, the vista was truly breath taking. We enjoyed a welcome hot drink on the very top of Ben Nevis as we took in the amazing panorama all around us. An amazing trip and highly recommended for a special occasion.

It's a must, beautiful scenic vistas - and takes you right back to when you saw it in the movie! Yes, you have to go to Hobbiton too, but this shouldn't be missed.

The Wine Depot was fantastic. Michelle is knowledgeable and helpful. Her staff make it easy to taste the numerous wines in their renovated train station, and also serve food to make sure that you can make your way home. A Must if traveling in Marlborough region.

Fantastic for Lord of the Rings Fans to see and visit some of the iconic - and not easy to reach -filming locations. Pilot was very knowledgeable about the locations and behind the scenes stories. I recommend making extra time available as weather can be an important factor so you don't miss out. Our original trip was rained out, but we were able to go the next morning since we kept that morning open - just in case!
