Took my two sons for a flight and it was brilliant. Hamish was our pilot - he was smooth on the controls and placed the helicopter nicely so we could all get a good view. Highly recommend this professional company and the services they offer.

Pick up and drop off from hotel was very convenient. Our pilot, Callum, had lots of information and good commentary to share with us. We had a beautiful day and beautiful views. The only downfall is that you are packed into the helicopter like sardines (7 including the pilot!)

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your experience with us! We appreciate all feedback as it can help us to improve in the future. Unfortunately it can be tight in the helicopter if there is 6 passengers on the flight, however we always think that the views make up for it! Our pilots try their best to swap people around in the back seats to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to take amazing photos of our beautiful backyard! We want to thank you again for flying with us and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Queenstown. From the team at The Helicopter Line Queenstown.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your flight with us! Our Southern Glacier flight is definitely one not to be missed! The snow covered mountains on a beautiful sunny day definitely is for sure one of our favourites too! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here in the Wakatipu Basin.
