This has to be the highlight of our South Island trip. Chris was great at putting together a fantastic experience, ensuring the best "bang for our buck" and one that we will remember forever. We did the one hour flight in the Cessna taking in all the grandeur that Aoraki Mount Cook national park has to offer. Sheer cliff faces, glaciers, lakes, snow caped peaks... amazing scenery in all directions and all right at eye level and all with a calm, witty and clearly experienced commentary. It was an awesome thing to have been able to do and I am glad we got to do it with Red Ca, definitely recommended. Still want to experience that bi plane too... so we will be back!!

A trip of a lifetime. We did the 1 hour "grand circle" in the Cessna with Chris and it was breathtaking. Conditions were perfect with still air the whole way and clear blue skies. The mountains, lakes and glaciers are incredible, as is Chris' knowledge of the area. There are various options for different budgets but I would recommend the 1 hour grand circle trip if you can afford it. Everyone should do this trip once in their life!
