Owner description: OVER THE TOP – more than a helicopter flight. With the latest helicopters available, our interpretive excursions take you over Queenstown, Milford & the Fiords of southern New Zealand. We shut down the helicopter on all of our landings to enjoy quiet beauty of this incredible part of the world. Fly with Over The Top to experience alpine glaciers & remote lakes with gourmet picnics, hiking, boating, extreme golfing, wine tours, fly fishing or skiing. Our selection of relaxed experiences distils the essence of New Zealand’s most dramatic scenery whilst immersing you in the natural history of the area. Meet, friends of ours, local photographers, high country farmers, wine makers, skippers all of whom are delighted to share their expertise & friendliness. Safety is paramount & continued investment has seen our fleet grow to include the Eurocopter EC130, the worlds most advanced flight seeing helicopter & the 9 seater BK117, Queenstown's largest & only twin engine Cat A helicopter.

If you are planning to visit Queenstown, I highly recommend that you book a helicopter ride with Over the Top! Landing on top of the mountain and seeing the amazing sights is truly unforgettable! The flight was so smooth and that’s all due to our great pilot, Dan. He was also knowledgeable, personable and friendly. It has been our favorite excursion on our trip!

On a clear sunny day last week I was delighted to join the Over The Top - Milford and Fiordland Highlight Helicopter tour on a beautifully clear Spring evening here in Queenstown.

From the moment I walked in the door any nerves subsided as Katie warmly greeted myself and Choppy introduced me to the other lovely passengers joining on the same flight.

The pilot James was fantastic, from the get-go to the safety briefing, to answering the many questions we all had throughout the flight, any turbulence we did experience - was hardly noticed by any of us as we were completely distracted by the beautiful surrounds and James pre-warned us the only two times there was a slight bump and no discomfort for any of us.

I would highly recommened the Milford and Fiordland Highlights trip to every person -
solo or a group who would like to experience the full show of New Zealand's beautiful climate and terrain as we flew through the Milford Sound, onto a beautiful beach along the West Coast, after a few photos, a stroll, a pocket of knowledge on the cray fishing in the area by James, a switch in the seating and we were on our way again over the mountains and towards the glaciers, we flew over iced lakes - landed on the glacier in complete awe of the surroundings, threw a couple of snowballs and we were on our way back over the alpine mountains, farmlands, and well known walking trails such as Ben Lomond (an iconic trail here in Queenstown with spectacular views from the top).

If I were to choose a company in Queenstown for my friends, family and/or colleagues to fly with - Over The Top would be my first choice.

Thank you for the best time!

Felt like an eagle taking in the stunning landscape from high in the sky, breathtaking with 360-degree views. Every angle was stunning--felt like a real photojournalist--took tons of pictures. You can really appreciate New Zealand's natural beauty and grandeur from a helicopter. Our heli captain was knowledgeable and friendly, and definitely had my confidence regarding safety. We flew to Milford Sound which is gorgeous. We got to land in the snow--on a glacier!--and take in the amazing view. When will we ever do that? My family and I all loved it. What an experience! It was so much fun.
