I booked this tour at last minute, being a tour I wouldn’t normally choose, but it was only one of the only ones left, however I walked away absolutely amazed. Our pilot (Jeremy) was a fantastic guide, and gave a great commentary plus both landings away from the airport were in awe-inspiring spots - as was all the scenery! The helicopter was immaculate and the rest of the team more than happy to help in anyway.

I can’t recommend this trip, or Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters anymore. If you’re not ‘across the line’ on whether to do this tour or not, do it, you won’t be disappointed.
