What to expect
Fly through the grandeur of the Alps, over rain forests, frozen lakes and majestic Milford to touchdown on an age old glacier. In the Queenstown area, we have three of the largest glaciers in New Zealand’s South Island and they are all above 6000 ft. Our Milford Sound and Glacier experience combines a scenic flight over the Southern Alps to the majestic Milford Sound, where you will fly over the Sound before heading north to the glacier areas. We will land beside one of the glaciers, providing the ideal opportunity for you to explore and take some memorable photographs. Either self-drive to our departure lounge at the Queenstown airport where we have ample complimentary parking and aim to be here 15 minutes prior to lift off. Alternatively, we can arrange a pick up from your Queenstown accommodation 30 minutes prior to lift off. Please note: Flights are weather dependent and subject to the pilots discretion.

The office crew were also very nice and the guy who picked us up from hotel was very nice .
Thank you and we will be in touch when we in Queenstown again !

A truly outstanding and memorable day
Oct 2020
What a truly spectacular day! Over the Top were amazing - the chopper was modern and comfortable. Our pilot (Brad) was just lovely - very knowledgeable and gave a running commentary throughout. I would give Over the Top a rating of 6 if it were possible, but 5 is the max...

Highlight of our trip!
Jan 2020
A truly amazing experience. Flying over mountain tops, landing on a glacier, lunch at a glacier lake and touring Milford Sound. We saw and interacted with some of the most gorgeous scenery anywhere. Out pilot Ryan was a terrific pilot and great guide. The helicopter was clean and comfortable. We felt safe the whole time, and learned a lot about the area from our pilot.We’ll never forget this experience but if we did we have fantastic photos to remind us.

The most amazing adventure and a lifetime experience we will never forget. The most exhilarating breath taking views and to land and walk on the glacier was very special. Michael our pilot was amazing and professional and made me very comfortable on my first time in a helicopter. Excellent friendly 5 star customer service.

We took a tour with Over the top helicopter tours to Milford sound while we were in Queenstown NZ for our honeymoon. Hands down the coolest and most amazing experience ever. We had a beautiful sunny day and when we landed on the glacier we were the only ones up there! Totally worth it!

We want to come back for our 10 year anniversary for a vow renewal with our pilot Dan!!

Cheers!

Unparalleled birds eye view

Amazing experience with beautiful views you won't normally see. Included two landings, one on a glacier where we were able to walk around and the other on a secluded beach. Renee, the pilot was very experienced and informative. He was personable and made sure to speak to everyone and answered all our questions. Overall great experience!

Professional, Excellent Experience
Feb 2019 • Couples
We traveling around the world heavily and like to try new experiences. Most of the helicopter rides appear to be sketchy or money-grubbing, with safety being a big question mark. We heard from multiple friends about this company, and when visiting Queenstown, this is a city that justifies a great helicopter experience. The mountains, glaciers and Milford Sound are stunning and very hard to get to by car. The perspective was magical from the helicopter. The pilot (I think his name was Dan) was very professional, very safety oriented, and knowledgeable about the area and sites. We landed on a glacier and got out to check it out, then we landed on the beach, then we landed by a mountain lake before heading back. Amazing experience. Didn't feel rushed at all. Felt very safe (and I'm crazy about this topic, reading NTSB reports all the time on safety issues of tourist helicopter companies!!). Highly recommend this group.

Best helicopter company
Jan 2019 • Couples
Our tour agent recommended this company and we were not disappointed. Fabulous experience with a first rate pilot. Recommend the earliest flight as the weather seems better. Plus, the mountains get crowded with helicopters as the day goes on and there may not be a glacier landing site available. Also, be aware they can only fly 100 days a year and flights can be cancelled due to weather at any time. Nobody’s fault but a bummer if it happens so plan your helo flight on your first day or so in Queenstown and reschedule if necessary due to weather.
