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

We took a flight from the lawn of our accommodations at Whare Kea in Wanaka. Michael was our pilot and he was terrific. We flew over the top of Mt Aspiring, landed on a nearby glacier (stopped and walked around), then onto Milford Sound where we again landed and walked to the lookout. We flew out over the sound and...

We chose Over the Top Tours to celebrate as part of two major family events. On the most awesomely beautiful day imaginable we were first picked up from our hotel most courteously by taxi. Then after a safety briefing, Louisa got us strapped in and off we went, over lake Wakatipu, over mountain tops. We glided effortlessly past the most... More

While planning our trip to NZ we (me, Dyso, Stewart and Davina) wanted to go to Milford Sound from Queenstown by air which takes in a journey over the mountains and after some serious deliberations went for the helicopter option which took in the Milford Sound cruise and a stop on a Glacier. We went for Over The Top and... More

Forget booking with any other company this is by far the best. My husband and I did the Milford Sound trip with the Glacier landing and it was breathtaking. We both come from an aviation/ tourism background and were highly impressed with the whole Corporate operation. Thankyou Louisa and Brad for a truly once in a lifetime experience.

Brad was our pilot and he was great. We did Milford and Fiordlands with stop on a glacier and it was breathe taking. We were on the eurocopter which was comfortable with tons of windows. Love it!
