“Spectacular trip to the active volcano, White Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

Amazing trip from start to finish. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Taza out pilot was brilliant, very informative and funny and above all, a great smooth flight. The trip to the volcano was amazing, walking through it was breath taking, quite literally, but no panick, they provide masks!!!

Highly recommend this company and trip to all, it may be pricey but worth every cent!!!

“Trip of a lifetime to White Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Stand on an active volcano, boiling mud pools, fumorals, steam, smell of sulphur knowing you can be out of there within 5 minutes was just fantastic. And Helipro provided the comfort blanket to do it. If you go to Rotorua you have to do this with Helipro. Very professional, informative and relaxing for a first time flyer.

“HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We stumbled across this tour operator in a local guide book and booked a tour on a whim. When we called, the pilot advised us that the whether may turn bad if we left it too late in the day, so we booked and went straight there. Twenty minutes later, we were in the chopper and on our way to do the 15 minutes Crate Lake Views helicopter sightseeing tour. It was absolutely incredible and worth every cent. So glad we did this. The pilot was lovely, informative and happily took some photos for us at the end of the tour. Couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Beautiful was to see Rotorau - you certainly get a whole different perspective of the place.
