Fantastic experience- this is an amazing trip as we did not get to the snow in Queenstown we treated our family this helicopter trip for our daughters 20th birthday. Initially we were going up to the Remarkables but as not much snow they suggested Cecil peak which was awesome.

Ok, so they're on a winner already with the scenery the Heli trips operate in, and it certainly lived up to all the hype on our trip to the snow at Cecil Peak. Helicopter is comfortable, smooth, and headsets superb in cutting out all noise and allowing conversation. Windows

Previously I had the chance to take the helicopter ride during a business trip, but this time it's a leisure trip and I was wondering should I spend the money to experience it again. It was well worth the price for a chance to fly up to the Alpine again to experience the surreal
