Spectacular Experience

This was the highlight of our trip to Queenstown. Out pilot was excellent and gave us a great commentary of the surrounding landscape. He also took the time to take pictures and videos for us. I was a little nervous as the first time in a helicopter but he put us at ease and talked us through the whole thing. It was really a spectacular experience and once in a lifetime for us. Well worth the money and I would do again if I got the chance. The view from the mountain and the experience of flying over Queenstown is a memory I will not forget. I'm just disappointed I cant remember the pilots names to give him the credit he deserves!

Helicopter flight

Loved the view and ride - was amazing. Pilot was great. But very very disappointing when it says 30 minute flight, you pay a lot of money, to then only get a 13 minute ride, including the take off, alpine landing and landing again….. a lot of money for 13 minutes as I timed it.

Excellent trip! Pilot and the team were great, and our family really enjoyed it, especially my daughter as it was her first time in a helicopter.
