“magical Maketu experience”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

only my 3rd time ever in a helicopter and wish I could afford to do so every day, friendly pilot, great views of Bay of Plenty and vineyards. Don't let the small size of the chopper fool you, once airborne feels very safe and like you are going really slowly even though you are not!

“First ever Helicopter Ride”
Reviewed 14 May 2008

Wow, I'd never been up in a helicopter before and what a buzz. Hard to believe the views you get from up there and so comfy!
Talk about a birds eye view...Fantastic views of the Bay of Plenty. Friendly very good (thank goodness!) pilot
This could become habit forming!!
