Mountain Helicopters were fantastic! Called the day before we intended on coming through to check infant prices as most other companies charge 50% of an adult race for infants. Was told that infants under 15kg didn’t incur a charge as they can go on a lap-great family friendly company. Had several great informative calls and planned to turn up and see what the weather was like. When we got there we had a great experience-weather only allowed for a 10min flight and a quick glimpse of Mt Tasman From start to finish Mountain Helicopters were fantastic to deal with, family friendly and we all had a great trip out with them. Will be back to do a longer flight at some point. Highly recommend!

Therese and Michael went above and beyond (literally) to get us flying over fox glacier. I can’t find the words the describe the views from the helicopter but I will try anyway. Amazing, stunning, awesome, majestic, out of this world. Thank you for getting us out there Michael and Therese. You two are amazing and we wish you all the best. If you are ever in Rotorua you know who to ring 😊

We first travelled to Fox Glacier 3 weeks ago to be greeted by dismal weather. No flight for us!! We then circumnavigated the South Island, and re-travelled SH6 from Greymouth specifically to take this flight with Mike. It was so worth it. We flew over Fox, Franz, landed at the top of the glacier, took a walk, flew around Mt Tasman and Mt Cook. Words really can't describe it. I totally recommend this flight, Mike, Therese, and the crew. Thank you so much. Heather and Peter

Exhilarating, magnificent scenery, perfect views, close ups, in your face, excellent pilot, great overall experience. Memorable and worth the very reasonable cost. Our favourite adventure from a brilliant campervan trip of the lower South Island of New Zealand out of a week of great memories. Thanks again Therese and Micheal for the experience. Oh and Bruce Bay was the best finnish, great recommendation. We live in an amazing country.
