A mesmerizing experience on my honeymoon trip, was planned as a surprise for my wife, she was elated to have this experience. Magnetizing landscapes from the helicopter, our pilot Jonathan was wonderful, took our photographs with the helicopter. It was exciting to see the Queenstown lake, the entire city, many peaks with few mountain capped with snow. Clear skies too made our view great. Is a must for any one visiting Queenstown. It would have been great if we could have landed on the glaciers, however, the season was such the snow wasn't there.

Perfect weather. Staff were friendly. Pilot was amazing! Narrating fun facts on places we hover. Was totally entertaining my kids. Flew through a cloud. Hovered over waterfalls. And made us play on the snow for as long as we can. Also took amazing photo with the helicopter whilst at the glacier. Super amazing experience!!!

Nous avons plutôt fait le vol de 50 min sur le glacier . Ce fut une expérience hors du commun ! Voler comme un oiseau au travers des montagnes si majestueuses ! Nous sommes bien peu de chose !! Des paysages fantastique , des sensations époustouflantes et un service hors pair de la cie . Un seul mot ... WOW !!
