The Taupo tour. Great wee trip and thanks to Dale the pilot for the fun stories on the trip around the area. Well worth it.

“We loved our sky tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It was a birthday flight for my mum and there were 3 of us including my 4yo son. The weather was ok but not perfect and we really appreciate our pilot's effort to take us on a best trip possible in these conditions. And it was absolutely great! The scenery was stunning, the flight - smooth, and the pilot new pretty much everything about the area. It was great that the pilot was a local guy - who would know the area better? After the flight we could hardly drag my son away from the big helicopter outside the tour office - amazing kids can go inside, press buttons and click all those switches - an unforgettable experience for a boy. Take your camera with you - the pilot will take pictures of you.

“Just Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

If you have never travelled by helicopter before then it's like nothing else. The rides at Huka were not cheap, over £200 per person for about 50 minutes. But it is difficult to compare with any other experience. Our pilot was knowledgeable and friendly. The helicopter they used was small so it's quite nerve-wracking at first but you soon get used to buzzing along it. We flew over a volcano near Lake Taupo and across the lake, which is huuuuuge! As I said, it's not cheap but there is nothing to compare.
