We did the flight over Queenstown with the alpine landing. Brilliant from start to finish. Our pilot was great, made us feel at ease, took photos and just made the experience 100 times better. I would highly recommend doing the heli tour with this company.

I've been fortunate enough to fly a few times with Heli Tours now, and have always had fantastic experiences. This review is relating to my recent flight with my parents. Due to the tail end of ex-tropical cyclone Cook, poor weather meant we weren't able to fly on our initial day. Fortunately had a few more days available, so rebooked... More

A helicopter ride is like no other & best way to see the glaciers is with Heli Tours. Blair was our pilot and cruised his way making us feel very comfortable. Views were breathtaking & touching & seeing snow for the first was amazing in summer. Ps. Always take a jacket as weather is crazy cold up on those peaks.

Hi Angela, Great photos and thanks for the review! Up on the glacier at 7,000ft is certainly different weather than down at Queenstown, good to hear Blair looked after you guys, certainly viewing the crevasses from the air and landing on the ice is a highlight! Enjoy the rest of your holiday, warm regards Paul and Katherine More

Took my parents and my souvenir 😉 haha my partner on the scenic flight, landing on queenstown stunning remarkables. We had Ben who was amazing, from the moment he welcomed us, to the moment we thanked him for the trip of a lifetime. He tested my blood pressure with a cliff drop. Highly recommend this! Aj
