I’ve always loved helicopters so this was a fantastic experience! The views from up top were great and the landings in Milford Sound were stunning. Pete was a fantastic pilot as well and has great knowledge of the area. Definitely an experience well worth the money.

My wife and I thought the flight was brilliant and would love to do it again. It made a super holiday even better! The only negative was the uncertainty of the flight due to lack of numbers. The flight time was changed three times and only confirmed about an hour beforehand.

J'avais réservé ce vol en janvier pour le mois d'août, donc j'avais un léger doute ! J'ai appelé la veille pour confirmer et le jour J on est venu nous chercher à l'hôtel, on nous a conduit à l'hélicoptère et on a décollé quelques minutes plus tard pour la plus merveilleuse des excursions, 1h30 de paysages merveilleux jusqu'au Milford Sound, un endroit paradisiaque. Au retour notre pilote a cherché un endroit sécurisé pour se poser sur la neige à haute altitude et nous nous sommes amusés pendant quelques minutes dans la neige avant de redécoller pour rentrer. Trop génial, ma fille de 11 ans a adoré!!!
