So I've been traveling Australia and NZed for 1 month. I did 2 helicopter rides in Sydney, one in the Coral Reef Barrier and this one. This was by far the best. Have to be fair: just because the views are out of this world. I was literally speechless. Looking at the pics tonite in my room I think they didn't do justice to the beauty......just because it really is something you have to live.
James was our pilot. He did a fantastic job!! He took us in a fantastic ride! Not only because the obvious: but he also was really well informed about the area.
If you come to Queenstown......this is the way to see it.....:)

My husband and I took this helicopter tour over Milford Sound and the glaciers on our honeymoon. The views were stunning, the staff were so friendly, and landing on the glaciers was an amazing experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot. New Zealand is a stunning place in general, and getting to view it from the helicopter was a special experience.

We did the SWO (share with others). Brad was our pilot and he was very informative and friendly and took pictures for us. My wife was his 'copilot' for the 1st leg of the trip down through Milford Sound to beach landing. We did the bus/boat tour the previous day and getting to see the grandeur from all those different views made it more impactful. We then left the beach and up through the rainforest for a landing on a mountain where we got to play in the snow and get more pictures. Would recommend these guys to everyone.

My partner and I came to Queenstown for the long weekend and this helicopter trip was by far the highlight and one of the best experiences we have ever been on! We felt completely looked after by the staff at Over the Top and the scenery was out of this world! Our pilot was awesome and we learnt so along the way. We stopped off on top of the glacier which was beautiful and then made our way to the Milford Sound. As the weather on the beach was overcast and slightly showering we all voted we would go and do a bush walk in Milford instead! It was incredible! I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting Queenstown to do this trip!

This is an experience not to be missed in Queenstown. The service is exceptional from the moment you book. Even though we had to have our planned flight adjusted due to weather, Pablo kept us informed and provided great alternatives. James our pilot was really knowledgeable a great host and also a great pilot 😀. We had two landings, one at a beach on the NZ coast and the other on a glacier - it was stunning. We also were flown through Milford Sound - whilst this is the reason we went, the Glacier was the highlight.

I’d highly recommend Over the Top. Thanks to Pablo and James for an incredible experience not to be forgotten.

Thank you! We really appreciate your amazing review, we are certainly lucky to fly our passengers to some of the most stunning locations in the world on a daily basis. The Milford & Fiordland Highlights is one of our favourites and most popular, due to the diversity in which you described - one minute your on a beach on the West Coast and next your hundreds of feet high on a frozen glacier! It was a pleasure having you on board with us and sharing our beautiful backyard, thank you for choosing us. I will pass on your kind words to Pedro & James and we look forward to welcoming you back to take your breath away again in the future! Kindest regards, Katie Over The Top Helicopters
