    As someone who tries to do a lot of adventures in NZ, I’ve been put off doing most of the heli and glacier trips as they all seemed really short for the cost.

    I am so glad I found this trip. Such good value and so much longer than most in NZ. I actually don’t think I’ve ever used the phrase Bucket List, but I did after this!

    I would recommend the sea plane and heli combo as you get 2 amazing experiences in one (thanks for letting me ride up front too!).

    From the drive to the airport, the flights themselves, seeing icebergs, learning about the Glacier and experiencing walking on actual deep snow… so many amazing aspects to the experience! Also kudos to the team who welcome you, make you feel at ease and even remembered me and called me by name, which was such a comforting and personable touch to an already great service.

    If your trying to decide if you should book it, trust me it’s worth it!

    Our tour guide Shane was excellent, knowledgeable and sensible. He is an experienced tour guide with full of energy and great personality.
    Mt cook walking track it took us under 3 hrs to walk return journey. The views was amazing. There were ice, glaciers and iceberg. The hanging bridges was quite lengthy and neat. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Of course not forgetting the salmon at salmon farm was fresh and the pie at the cafe was one of the best.

    Going up in the helicopter, and landing in the snow, amazing! The guides knew a lot and were very friendly and entertaining. The trip was long on the road, but our guides had a lot of interesting information about geology, movies that were filmed in the area, and fun facts as well. Definitely worth it. There is also the opportunity to do a short walk around Aoraki/Mt Cook, or you can explore the Village. The guides made it their mission to make sure everyone got what they wanted out of the trip. Thank Dan and Kreig!

    Shane was our tour guide for today, 7th of May 2022, to Mt Cook and he was competent, friendly and entertaining and had a lot of knowledge. We enjoyed our day thoroughly throughout the journey.

    From beginning to end, the team at Mt Cook Airlines was helpful and professional, only wanting the best outcome for us. The Grand Circle was amazing, seeing all three glaciers, each so different, and to get so close to Mt Cook was a bonus. The landing on Tasman Glacier is not to be missed either. An unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience.

    We had a great tour in the Aoraki-Mt Cook area with Gary from Maossie Tours. Gary is very friendly and knowledgeable, and took great care of us throughout the day. Though the weather wasn't the best, and Mt Cook itself was shy all day, we had a very pleasant day seeing great lakes and glaciers, hearing about the history of the region, and visiting small towns in rural New Zealand. I recommend it highly, because you get to see this part of the country close up, and you can take in the stunning views as Gary drives.

    This is the best adventure I’ve had in a very long time. If you want breath taking views, and the time of your life then I recommend this company for the 45min scenic flight and landing on top of a glacier.

    Our pilot Andrew had over 17 years experience including rescue helicopters overseas and it’s the pilots knowledge and commentary of the surrounds that makes the differences.

    The company is older than the Governments Department of Conservation and hold more permits to land than any other helicopter company

    . Even little things like turning the engine off on the glacier to allow you to listen to the silence (which costs the company more in fuel than it does to leave them on) however they are massive into customer experience. I highly recommend doing this

    A fantastic experience and wonderful service. Our driver and guide, Anuj, took good care of us on our trip to lakes Tekapo and Pukaki. His commentary and local knowledge was appreciated, as was his flexibility in moving the schedule around owing to a change in the weather (making for some stunning views). The journey makes for a long day, but the transport and company makes for a comfortable ride. I highly recommend NZSI tours and would use them again.

    Cheeky Kiwi tours are amazing! All the way from Mark helping us book our skydive tour and giving us the go ahead to get our own private tour, to Lance our tour guide who looked after us the whole day!

    Echoing the many great reviews. Absolutely fabulous, felt very safe in the hands of Dan and the ski plane though I'm a timid flyer. Great sights. We couldn't land because of wind, but the company went out of their way to accommodate a landing later or refund. Great customer service, friendly, clean facility, great plane, great piloting. Highly recommend.

    This was amazing - what a wonderful location for my first ever jump from a plane (tandem jump). I wasn’t scared for a moment - the staff were so wonderful. If I can do it at my age - 66 and way overweight - anyone can. It was a perfect experience from start to finish and I never felt anything but totally confidence in my tandem mate - and seeing the mountains, lakes and landscape from way up there was just stunning! A huge thanks to everyone at Skydive Mt Cook - especially the young man I jumped with.
