Would happily give this a greater rating than 5/5. I have been to Queenstown many times and can honestly say if there is one thing you must do in Queenstown please make it this trip with this company .Alfie our pilot made this day the spectacular, it exceeded all expectations. The scenery was mind blowing, to be so up close to waterfalls, mountain tops, glacial lakes, heartfelt gratitude to the Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopter Team.
