The perfect afternoon out
Cannot recommend this company enough. Various package options given. We picked to have the helicopter to ourselves as we were 4 already. Everything was explained in detail. On the day we received a call (which I missed) followed by a text to let us know weather was good for the flight & what time we should show for check in. Once there welcomed by Pedro who checked us in, explained how the trip would go. Then our pilot showed explained where we would go on the map did a quick safety briefing and we were off. The helicopter was spacious & beautifully maintained. Once we were buckled in we were off. Seven minutes later we landed in an untouched location with fresh snow. Nothing can describe the experience. The pilot took so many photos for us and explained where we were and answered all our questions. Definitely great value for money & would recommend for a special once in a lifetime experience.

INCREDIBLE! To be taken to areas that are so untouched is just breathtaking. Pilot Michael was so knowledgeable on the areas we went and made everyone feel so safe. Experience from as soon as you check in is 5*. Would do this a million times over!

Magical experience - must do!
Oct 2020 • Couples
One of the best (if not the best) thing I’ve done on holiday anywhere in the world! Absolutely loved our experience - right from being greeted at the office by Katie (who arranged our trip at short notice for us) and being introduced to our pilot which put me at ease, having never been on a helicopter before. We were flown over Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu with excellent commentary on the way, and then landed on Cecil Peak - to have pavlova and bubbles! Incredible scenery, great staff and excellent value for money. Highly recommend it! Wish I could do it all over again.

Absolutely Stunning
This was the highlight of our visit to Queenstown. From the moment we arrived and met Katie at reception to taking off with our pilot Michael, we felt safe....and excited. The climb up over the ridge to land on the top in the snow was exhilarating. The view from the ridge overlooking Queenstown was spectacular and taking off to head back was even more breathtaking. Michael was full of great information and we were still buzzing about our flight hours afterwards. A must do in Queenstown

Amazing day out
Sep 2020
Would have to say this was the highlight of our Queenstown trip. Right from the snow landing to the delicious BBQ lunch and little exploration of the grounds at the high country stone cottage. James is a great pilot and tour guide and really made the trip. Nothing was an issue. The entire experience was very professional and I would totally recommend Over the Top helicopter tours if you are looking to do something special.
