This tour was amazing and they also changed our booking to the other town that we been on the other side of the glacierwas a GPS bad location from Here Services and we ended up on the other side 50km, now I always double check with Google maps. I would also go with glacier hiking but for fast pace you can use only this helicopter tour.
Awesome flight, we were lucky to have clear weather which made it even better. Tour was really well organised and the pilot was great.
A stunningly beautiful day up on the glaciers. Our pilot Tyson did a wonderful job of taking us up there and back, and telling us about what we were seeing. We were impressed that he didn't rush us while we were out on the glacier, and offered to take our pix. And he printed off his own pix for us to purchase at a reasonable price. Awesome trip!
It was just a fantastic experience, the tour guides were very helpful and friendly. aA must do for all tourists
A wonderful experience, first class service. And the weather was perfect. Would love to do it again.
The most amazing, spectacular experience! I just wanted to go again, it's not to be missed!
Absolutely stunning views as long as you're lucky with the weather. We'd organised to go to both glaciers but because of high winds had to settle for 1. First chopper up so we had it all to ourselves for a while. Also did the walks to the base first. Fantastic!!
Awesome!Beautiful ! Great friendly pilot. Fantastic trip -thank you.
I will give this company top marks for being understanding and tourist friendly. We had to change our booking due to a road closure caused by a slight landslide driving from Wanaka. They were more than happy to change our time. When we arrived there was cloud cover and our booked time was cancelled and rescheduled two hours later. The flight was excellent and we landed on Fox Glacier for photos etc. There was fresh snow which was very soft and almost every step we went down to our knees in the snow. The pilot was very helpful in assisting me around. We then recorded and flew over the ravines and onto Franz Josef Glacier which was just as spectacular and the whole trip was very memorable.
The best thing that we did!!!! The beauty of this place is just amazing, being on top of the glacier was like being in another world, our pilot ben was amazing and the whole experience was just great!
Awesome. I rate it as one of the top ten experiences in my life. Well wort the money in hindsight it is actually very reasonable. As Franz Joseph glacier is disappearing very rapidly the view from the ground would have been a bit disappointing if I hadn' first seen it from the air. A must do!!!
A trip not to be missed! The pilot, Andrew, gave an excellent commentary as well as expertly flying the helicopter to ensure a smooth and stunning trip.
It was awesome. We had a beautiful sunny day and the pilot was brill. We were just sad we didn't have enough time to do the heli-hike, if u have the time that would be even better.

What a brilliant experience this was. Even though we could not go to Fox Glacier due to the clouds rolling in, we did get in a snow landing. The pilot was fantastic and the company has offered to refund monies owed. We would thoroughly recommend this experience as it gives you a new and interesting perspective of the beautiful glacier.
