My wife and I recently traveled to Queenstown for our honeymoon. We were excited for all the adventure it had to offer, but also hoped to take in the scenery in a less daring way. Lunch on a mountain peak seemed like something out of The Bachelor, and an experience we never thought we'd share. Simply put. This was everything... More

Shakespeare should have lived to these times to see this Helicopter Company justifies its name through the professionalism and genuine hospitality they offer. You can just imagine how highly rated they are in terms of their work that when we told our taxi driver about the trip he was like "OVER THE TOP ??GUYS YOU GONNA HAVE TIME OF YOUR... More

Over the Top Helicopters provides a TOP NOTCH experience. The booking and check in where seamless (despite the delays with weather), the staff was spectacular, our captain was a true host and the views and flight were unmatched. Thank you for a stellar adventure!

Our family took a helicopter tour of Fiordland national park, up to milford sound at new years. i was a bit nervous, given only my second helicopter ride but Steve, our pilot, a former English military pilot, put us immediately at ease. He was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and great with our kids. We saw the most incredible scenery - only... More

We were taken to such beautiful places, only reachable by helicopter. Our pilot, Brad, was so professional and knowledgable about the area. I highly recommend this company.

This helicopter ride over the NZ alps was one of the highlights of our three week trip We almost left it out since it is expensive, but it was SO worth it. Our pilot, Michael, was knowledgeable and good company, not to mention an expert heli pilot. He took us to a rarely visited lake, flew us down Milford Sound,... More

This is a must do for honeymooners, ask for this trip as a wedding gift like we did! This trip is amazing! We were taken by helicopter up on a peak overlooking Queenstown and the beautiful lake and snowy peaks. There we were handed lunch bags and then the helicopter took off, leaving us to ourselves with a gorgeous lunch... More

Thank you Over the Top for a wonderful time exploring the mountains around Queenstown. We had a start/stop morning due to weather, but Pedro kept us informed and got us in the air with our pilot, Michael. Informative ride and incredibly kind staff. Looking forward to recommending this tour to our friends!
