Apart from the fact that the day was perfect - no wind, no clouds, the whole experience was 6 stars. Weighing the people was a good safety measure; no baggage was another one. We were impressed with the pilot's concern for the other passengers when one of the passengers brought an ipad, thus tending to block the view of the others. He put a stop to it, very kindly. His knowledge was great, and this is one of the events where I'd say to everyone "Save your pennies and do this trip. Magical! Many many thanks.
Had to wait a day because of the weather but well worth it! The front seat helped but it was definitely the trip of a lifetime! The photographs that I took were fantastic and who would have known that a glacier was blue?

Excellent. The pilot gave us an experience we will remember for a long long time. If you are going to New Zealand, do not miss this.

Our first helicopter flight! My 80 and 82 year old parents were with us and found the experience awesome. It was probably the highlight of our holiday and would recommend it as a must to anyone. Any age can do it!!!
We were blessed with the most perfect day imaginable to take our helicopter flight to the top of the Fox Glacier. The sky was a vivid blue and the snow sparkling white. Our flight took us up and over some stunning mountains and glaciers. Our pilot was so friendly and kept us informed as to what we were viewing as he guided the helicopter up to the point where we landed. The flight and the experience of actually walking on a glacier on the most spectacular of days was the HIGHLIGHT of a wonderful ten days we spent travelling around the south island of NZ.
An exciting experience but scary! Your life is in the hands of the expert pilot. Superb views.

it was fantastic one of the highlights of our trip . to see the glaciers from the air as well as the landing on them as well is something i will never forget and the photo of mt cook i took up there was something quite special .the i would like to yhank all the staff as well from the girls behind the desk ,the loader and the piolet they were all fantastic
We were seated in the back seat behind the pilot and could hardly get a decent view throughout the flight. I have registered a complaint with your customer care team. Expected a lot more for the price paid! Would only recommend to others if they were able to get a front see in the helicopter.
