Wind and clouds made it look like we were not going to get our flight in. But the very helpful staff suggested we see if the weather improved - it did. The flight was awesome and the pilot was just great, taking photos etc. Pick up and return to our motel was also very appreciated. The best experience of our trip.

Mum & I thought it was one of the highlights of our trip. We had the best time and want to thank you for making it worthwhile. We couldn't believe our luck with the weather and getting an extended time up in the air. Thank you from the both of us.

The flight over The Remarkables was amazing. I booked 3 seats on the helicopter for myself, my daughter and my Mum for her 70th birthday. She was absolutely blown away by the shear size of the mountains and when we landed up top and were able to get out and have our photos taken on the edge, well it was like the icing on the cake. She hadn't been on a helicopter before and this was a great experience for, not only her, but for all of us. Thank you. You helped make her birthday one of the best yet.
