My now fiance and I did the picnic on a peak tour. We loved it! We were given the option to fly with another couple on a longer flight and then be dropped at separate locations for our picnic or have a slightly shorter flight but be flown separately. We chose the latter . We were flown from the base, up over queenstown and over some of the surrounding mountains and lakes with reece our pilot who was great by the way very friendly.we were in the air aprox 6 or 7 min one way till reece found us a nice spot totally secluded from anyone or anything. He dropped us off with chairs and a fantastic hamper and said hed return in 90min to pick us up again, unless u want to leave sooner u are left with a radio to call the helicopter back early, no idea why anyone would want to leave early, the scenery from the mountain tops is amazing and by the time you look around and eat the time goes quiet quickly.on the return flight home reece followed the mountain lines giving us an unreal ride with some great views. I would definitely recommend this tour if your looking for a romantic moment away with a loved one or looking for that perfect moment to pop the question. I recommend if you are planning a proposal talk to the booking staff before hand as they can really add some personalize touches to the tour as well... the tour isnt overly cheap, for the 2 of us it was a touch over $1400 but if the budget allows especially if your looking at a proposal idea I felt its definitely money well spent for a once in a lifetime moment that youl remember forever . The day we did our tour the weather was a touch overcast but the pilot will do his best to fly you to a location that will give you the best views and weather , so dont fret if the day on the day of your tour is overcast the team do there best to still give you an unreal experience

Well there are definitely a lot of vendors that you can use for your helicopter tour rolling queen town, I would definitely go with over the top. From the minute we got in the van they were friendly, kind courteous and truly interested in making it a great voyage. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we were unable to go to Milford sound, however they did a range and explain and alternative triple tree were able to do. The trip was great. We went to the lake and also landed on a snowy and Cliff that we were able to take photos of. I would definitely use this company again. Brad the pilot was fantastic made everyone feel comfortable and safe.

This is a must experience while visiting Queenstown. The crew were incredible and the experience one can’t explain in words.

We had Reece take us up on Friday, he was fantastic with the kids and we never felt rushed to go back. We had a fantastic day for it that’s for sure. Our son left his sweatshirt up on Cecil Peak and Reece went back and got it for us. Fantastic service, Thanks over the top.

We took the 2 1/2 hr helicopter ride booked in advance before leaving the states,flew with such a nice family Campbell, Amanda and Hazel who were just as thrilled with the ride as we were.I would recommend this company to anyone our pilot was so nice and knowledgable, landed on glacier and on the beach also,it was worth every cent.
