Very professional and considerate towards their customers.
The staff were friendly and very helpful. The actual helicopter ride was amazing and the pilot was good at informing us of where we were, what we were seeing, giving us background on the glaciers/area and also reassuring us when it got a little bumpy. Landing on the top of the glacier for photos was awesome. Definitely a highlight of my trip!
The organisation at base office was friendly and professional, our Pilot Marcus left us with the feeling that he enjoyed his work taking great pride in explaining all the features of the flight. It was my wife's Christmas present, she was smiling from start to finish there is no better accolade
The view was very good, unfortunately the photo session was too short (not more than 10 minutes) and allowed at 1 spot only.
Quite amazing and definitely a must for anybody visiting New Zealand. Unexplainable, you have to experience the trip to really "get it"
We had a fantastic time! The weather, the views, the helicopter it was all fantastic. The guide was great too, he told us what we were seeing and made sure we all had photos taken on the glacier. Well worth it! Thank you.

We think it would have been amazing if we had been able to walk on a glacier; however, we did get to walk on some snow.
This trip was very good.
Re-booking our flight to a later date was no problem at all. Friendly service and a flight experience that I definitely recommend to anyone keen to see some spectacular views.
This trip was truly amazing. We saw all there is to see and the landing on the snow was fantastic. We were booked to fly the following day but when we phoned earlier to confirm our booking etc we were offered this flight a day earlier as the weather was good - we just had to 'race' up from Queenstown to do it - and it was well worth it as the sky was almost cloudless - perfect! Thanks to all at the helicopter base for accommodating us. Just one downside. The helicopter seats 2 people in the front seat and 4 people in the rear seat and we were advised before the flight that although we were in the rear seats for the first part of the flight, seating is rotated after the snow landing to allow some of those in the rear seats to sit up front but the others on the same trip as us ignored this and took the front seats both times. We didn't want to cause a scene, but you need to make this much clearer to everyone going on the flight to make it fair to everyone.
Stunning vistas, excellent scenic flights and covered lots of area including circling around Mount Cook. Brilliant snow landing too.
This trip was one of the highlights of our two-week journey to the South Island. The views were amazing, and the photo opportunities endless.

It is excellent just to be so close to Mount Cook.
We were very fortunate to be taken to the Plateau Hut with an employee from the Department of Conservation. The whole experience was mind blowing and a highlight of our holiday in NZ.
