Highly recommended to all! Daniel our pilot was extremely knowledgeable about the area and we learned so much. The trip to Milford was breathtaking. We stopped for a few hits of golf off a glacier which was a simply surreal experience. A+++

First time in a helicopter for 2 of us. Perfect weather no wind and blue skies. Dan our pilot was excellent. Very knowledgeable pointing out everything. Smooth flight. Loved landing on the glacier and getting out. Took some lovely photos. Milford river cruise was spectacular again lots of lovely photos. Definitely recommend it.

I can highly recommend the" Milford Sound Highlights" trip. This tour includes two landings and a fly through the Milford Sound. The pilot was extremely professional and had an outstanding knowledge about the area. It's really worth it.

This was the first time we had been in a helicopter. What an amazing experience. From the reception we received to the fantastic flight over Queenstown and in to the mountains! Dropped off in a stunning location with an equally stunning hamper. All very exciting and romantic. Thanks for looking after us so well.

Touch of Spice in Queenstown recommended Over the Top. What a great recommendation! Our pilot Dan was outstanding and we were treated to fantastic views of Milford Sounds, landed on a remote beach, a glacier and a ridge above Queenstown allowing us to get out and experience the sounds and smells and views. Saw dolphins swimming from the air and... More

From the moment we walked in and were greated by Pedro and the 2 Labs, (can't remember their names), we had a great experience. Our pilot Jason was a man of few words, but gave us information when we needed it or when asked. The entire trip was amazing and I would highly recommend this tour operator when in Queenstown...

Hands down one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had the pleasure of doing. Many thanks to Brad, Shannon, Pedro, Choppy and the team for providing a professional experience from the moment you walk through the door. Brad went the extra mile stopping in some of the most remote locations on our way to and from Milford Sound.... More

This was absolutely the highlight of our trip! I would definitely recommend anyone who is visiting Queenstown to do this. We had a Picnic on A Peak and it was more than worth it! The picnic was delicious and the views were so unreal, it was such an amazing experience.

We booked this in advance before visiting queenstown. Had to wait for really nice weather first and luckily, the day was so perfect we got to land on the remarkables, have a picnic lunch ALONE, and enjoy the amazing views of this region. All the staff were informative, friendly and accommodating. The picnic lunch was huge, we would have lasted... More
