Amazing experience & a fantastic way to see the glaciers with 2 children, aged 5 & 11. Check time of year for flights, though, as during summer the weather can be unpredictable & flights don't go. We got lucky!
It was brilliant! The snow landing was great fun, especially when you don't get to see snow often coming from Australia!
The staff was very friendly and well-informed. Overall, this was a great experience.
After doubt whether trip could take place because it was too cloudy and postponement until 5pm, finally at 6.30pm the trip went to plan and was certainly well worth the wait. An amazing experience!
Great weather made the perfect day. Pilot and staff very personable and professional.
Our first touch of snow...........considering our family at home were suffering through over 40 degree heat we were loving the temperature. Highly recommend to anyone; even those who THINK they may fear heights!!! loved it.... only thing.... wish it took a little longer.... ;-)
Really a great experience, a very good pilot, fantastic scenery and over all too soon.
It was everything and more! The helicopter flight was so smooth I was not at all worried though this was my first helicopter trip. In good NZ words, "AWESOME."
Fantastic views and informative piolit but we were squashed in like sardines and found it very uncomfortable. We are photographers and barely had space to raise my arms to take photos in the helicopter. I understand the company has to make the most of the fine weather but the amount we paid I would expect a more comfortable experience.
It was too cloudy we couldn't fly on the day, but used the purchased voucher in Queenstown for an alp landing that was awesome.
We were unable to take this trip due to Haast Pass being closed down due to a landslide.
We went to the Helicopter Office was escorted across the road to the landing pad flew over the glacier and landed stood around for a few minutes the view of the ice was nice and then flew a short flight back, we sat in the back of the helicopter and was disapointed in the view, I like to take photos but they werent much through the windows, overall a bit boring and personally I wish I would of spent the money eleswhere, but you don't know untill you go, it wasn't awful.
