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!

This ranks as one of the top three Helicopter rides in the world.In July we did the Kauai ride.This is better.Our pilot Michael was delightful and extremely professional.He exudes confidence.We went to Milford Sound and few other surprises.We rate the flight the highlight.The scenery is without peer.Worth every cent.

My wife and our two teenage sons went on tis 1.5 hour excursion. What an awesome experience that we will always remember. The sites were breathtaking and our pilot James Forward was outstanding. Milford Sound is just breathtaking and no better way than to see it by helicopter.

We were met with lovely staff and had a fantastic experience on the top of a mountain playing golf in queenstown. An experience that everyone should indulge in! Thank you to the very lovely team.

We were met by Choppy with her spotless Eurocopter on the lawns of Blanket Bay. This very cool lady took us under her wing and we felt like we had known her for years. She made our trip (our honeymoon) to NZ. We saw more with an hour with her than the rest of our 8 day trip around the... More

My husband and our 5 year old daughter had tried unsuccessfully to fly (by plane) over the Mountains in North Island the previous month. We arrived in Queenstown and after a few days it became apparent that our plane trip to Milford Sound was also unlikely to happen due to the weather. After a few recommendations and phone calls we...

I was passing through Queenstown whilst on holiday and wanted to take a helicopter excursion in order to propose to my girlfriend. With only a couple days notice, I booked an "Alpine snow landing" through Over The Top". From the start their team were extremely helpful in making things happen in order that my proposal went smoothly! From organising champagne... More

We booked the “Alpine Snow Landing Tour” in the Eurocopter EC130 and were lucky in the fact we picked a stunning day. We were very privileged to have Louisa a.k.a. “Choppy”, the company owner, as our pilot who was great. Depleting Queenstown we were soon over the top of the mountains admiring the stunning views. We then set down on... More
