5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Having never been in a helicopter and also never seen a glacier this was double the excitement for my wife, our 14 year old son and myself. Amazing scenery, the stop on the mountain was also awesome. The day was beautiful weather which helped but it was the highlight of our trip to the South Island. The only thing that would have made it only a little better would be a slightly longer flight over the mountain and glacier, otherwise fantastic!
