I will give this company top marks for being understanding and tourist friendly. We had to change our booking due to a road closure caused by a slight landslide driving from Wanaka. They were more than happy to change our time. When we arrived there was cloud cover and our booked time was cancelled and rescheduled two hours later. The flight was excellent and we landed on Fox Glacier for photos etc. There was fresh snow which was very soft and almost every step we went down to our knees in the snow. The pilot was very helpful in assisting me around. We then recorded and flew over the ravines and onto Franz Josef Glacier which was just as spectacular and the whole trip was very memorable.

Awesome. I rate it as one of the top ten experiences in my life. Well wort the money in hindsight it is actually very reasonable. As Franz Joseph glacier is disappearing very rapidly the view from the ground would have been a bit disappointing if I hadn' first seen it from the air. A must do!!!

A trip not to be missed! The pilot, Andrew, gave an excellent commentary as well as expertly flying the helicopter to ensure a smooth and stunning trip.

It was awesome. We had a beautiful sunny day and the pilot was brill. We were just sad we didn't have enough time to do the heli-hike, if u have the time that would be even better.

What a brilliant experience this was. Even though we could not go to Fox Glacier due to the clouds rolling in, we did get in a snow landing. The pilot was fantastic and the company has offered to refund monies owed. We would thoroughly recommend this experience as it gives you a new and interesting perspective of the beautiful glacier.

Great experience and service. We had planned to fly the next morning, but the weather forecast was bad, so at very short notice, they arranged for us to go up the afternoon before.

The helicopter trip was awesome and to stand on the glacier was fabulous. Only criticism is that the reception staff at The Helicopter line were very unhelpful and rude and the pilot's commentary was lack lustre. Apart from that brilliant!
