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.
The best thing that we did!!!! The beauty of this place is just amazing, being on top of the glacier was like being in another world, our pilot ben was amazing and the whole experience was just great!
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.
Fabulous, friendly staff, on time, first time kids touched and played with snow . Would highly recommend to others.
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 twin glacier helicopter flight was fantastic, we had a beautiful trip.The pilot was very helpful and very good photographer either. altogether would recommend to anyone.
