    Took this guided trip today and exceeded expectations. The guide ‘Romina’ was awesome, she guided us through the glacier taking extra time for those who required it and answering the many questions. Her sense of humour had everyone at ease and there was lots of laughter. A truly unforgettable team thanks to the team at Helicopter Line and Romina and her team of guided who establish the route before you arrive on the glacier. Would highly recommend this trip

    This was one of the best things I’ve done and I would highly recommend it. Jamie was our guide and was amazing! I did this with my friend and we had so much fun. You get to bike over different terrains as well as through the water. You get fully kitted out with waterproof clothing and a helmet. Definitely want to come back and do this again! Epic fun!! A Franz Josef must do for sure!!

    The Team at Franz Josef Skydive were all amazing. Could not fault anything. They kept you up to date with what was going on and made you feel really safe when you were about to throw yourself out of a plane

    Heard that Franz Josef has a better view for skydive than Queenstown which is absolutely correct. Drizzling upon arrived in Franz Josef but unable to skydive due to weather condition no good. Went again next day with blessing of good weather. My son did the value price fir 13,000ft and I did for the skydive of 20,000ft. Request for 2 personal photographer but they have only one available. They do have tandem master behind us which makes us fell secured. All the staffs are very friendly and those had a jump from 20k ft will get foc t-shirt. Paid for all the videos and felt worth it as it's a must for once a life time. You get longer time above the air for 20k ft. Will be cold jump from plane but very enjoyable. After the release of parachute, get to glide and have good view. An excellent experience. Assume they are the only company do the skydive.. Do book from them will feeling of assurance and confidence.

    What an absolutely amazing experience!! The two ladies working at Skydive Franz are absolutely lovely and were excited as we were. Unfortunately after going up in the plane in the morning we had to land as cloud came rolling in, so we were rescheduled for in the afternoon. Although it was pretty nerve wracking it actually made me feel calmer for the afternoon and the team were all so nice and encouraging about it. Put it this way - we had a little scenic flight too!
    The actual skydive was just incredible, it was my first time and I felt so safe and can’t wait to do more skydives in the future now.
    If you can stretch your budget I’d highly recommend having the full video package, having footage and pictures of me skydiving in front of the insane backdrop is so special, as skydives are over so quickly it’s nice to have something to show others and to watch back and remember.
    Thank you team!!

    During our over three week tour of Australia and New Zealand where we experienced a variety of tours operators in both countries, we found that that Canterbury Trails was the absolute best operator in either country. While a huge part of this extremely positive experience has to do with our specific tour guide, Mandy Mitchell, that the company itself provides small personal touches from beginning to end made the experience a joy.

    Unlike other day tour operators we faced throughout our journey, Canterbury Trails pays attention to the details that make a travel experience memorable and positive. For example, when we checked into our hotel, a letter was waiting from the company welcoming us, telling us who our guide was going to be and instructions about appropriate clothing for the tour. Although the time of the tour start was already on our itinerary from our U.S. travel agent, that written Welcome was reassuring as our U.S. agent had gotten several tour times wrong. That Canterbury provided Mandy’s and the owner’s name, and the local contact information the day before the tour was reassuring and considerate.

    We first used Canterbury for the Akaroa day cruise in a small group and then the next day our party of three undertook a separate private tour, by train, and then by SUV through Arthurs Pass and then back east down to Queenstown. In both cases Mandy was our tour guide. She was superb, knowledgeable, energetic, friendly, and helpful throughout. As there was some inclement weather during parts of private tour, Mandy made several key suggestions that allowed us see more of the key sights along the way, making much better use of our time than what our travel agent had outlined.

    We expected to carry home memories of the South Island’s scenery and history. We didn’t expect that we would also bring back such fond ones of our tour guide.

    From booking through to the landing all of the staff that I interacted with were amazing. The jump itself was a fantastic experience. For my first skydive, I couldn't have picked a better location. Glaciers, rainforest, beach; what more could you ask for
