Our helicopter flight & tour to White Island with Volcanic Air Safaris in early October was incredible. Our pilot, Danielle, was very knowledgeable (answering every question we had) and patient when we wanted a few more photos in a spot before moving on.

We almost passed up going on this excursion, but we are so glad we didn't. It was more certainly a highlight from our entire 2 week vacation. Worth every penny!

The weather just about allowed us to have the flight, with the sun out on the island when we were flying over it. Angela, our pilot, kept us entertained in a very informative, expertly and friendly way which made the time fly past (excuse the pun). Flying out from Rotorua was a treat in looking at the ever changing landscape, and once at White Island all the reports we had read about the island came true. Amazing feeling in flying over an active volcano, feeling the bumps as the hot air rises. We went round the island 3 times, getting ever closer which allowed us brilliant views and the chance of taking plenty of photographs. Our trip was over too quickly and the flight back to land on the lake was lovely. A trip to thoroughly recommend.

We gave my parents for their wedding anniversary gift a scenic flight which we took on Mothers' Day - the weather was perfect and the trip was amazing. Dorienne in the office was very helpful and went out of her way to accommodate our group - thank you! Phil was our pilot and was very informative and gave us a wonderful experience - what a smooth landing. I urge local residents of Rotorua to take this trip to see our beautiful scenery from a different perspective. Top marks all around for this company and their friendly staff.

Took a seaplane trip with Phil (great pilot) with Volcanic Air Safaries to Hidden valley & back - it was awesome!
Next day we took the helicopter with Danielle (best pilot ever) out to White Island - it was awesome, awesome, awesome. The view from the chopper was magic & we had a gorgeous clear day & could see the lakes & valleys so well. White Island itself is truly worth the trip & landing right in the crater in the helicopter was an exhilarating experience. Danielle guided us around & showed us the crater & all the volcanic activity which was just unbelievable. Felt like being on an alien planet! Highlight of our trip!!

As said, we hadn't planned to do this! It was a beautiful day 28 Jan 2013, and we decided on the spur of the moment. We took the Floatplane tour 'Mt Tarawera/Waimangu volcanic valley. Angela our pilot was informative and generally made you feel she cared about what she did and the area itself. Would recommend.
