So flexible due to bad weather. Such a unique perspective and definitely worth doing even if you can't perform a landing. Breathtakingly spectacular. Very friendly and accommodating guys

For the scenery and the experience it would have been a five! The pilot expertly manoeuvres the helicopter to try and give all the passengers a good view whilst maintaining a commentary. My reason for knocking a star off and marking the trip 4 out if 5 is just that 30 minutes is not long enough to take it all in. It just felt a wee bit rushed if you were trying to take photos on the flight.
Yes, the trip is well worth taking. My advice.... film/video record the scenery whilst in flight. There's plenty of time on the glacier for photos.

We loved this helicopter ride. It was well worth the money and we would have regretted not going.
It was a trip of a lifetime and the helicopter ride was part of making it so.
