I booked this trip as a surprise for my wife and it could not have been better. The team were friendly and helpful. The flight itself was comfortable and offered brilliant views over Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables Range. After a very scenic flight we were landed into an idyllic spot with a spectacular view. We were dropped off and left with an excellent picnic containing everything you could want. We had chosen to stay for around 2 hours, but were told we could choose to be picked up earlier if we wanted or stay longer by letting the team know. Having such a beautiful spot all to ourselves truly was magic. I can't recommend this highly enough - especially for a special occasion.

Thank you Daniel for your review. We were so happy the weather worked for us in the end to provide such a fabulous backdrop to enjoy your Picnic on a Peak. Our backyard is truly amazing, with views you can only experience from the air, no doubt you have some fabulous photos to remember it by. Thank you for choosing us to fly with, we appreciate your support and will pass on your feedback to the rest of the team. Kind Regards The Over The Top Team

I have to say that this is one of the best experiences we’ve ever done. Everyone had an amazing time, it couldn’t have been better, the weather, the views, the flight, the helicopter, the staff, the golf (apart from a few errant shots) all just brilliant. Super smooth flight there and back, Brad the pilot was awesome too. A 100% must do in Queenstown, even if you don't play Golf, the views from Cecil Peak and during the flight are worth it. (try and snag the front seat on the return leg if you can!) The 4 of us that visited all live in Queenstown so are spoilt by the view each day but what you see from up here is just next level.

Thank you, we really appreciate your amazing review, we think it's a Queenstown Must Do too, even for our lovely locals like you. We are certainly lucky to have our Over The Top Golf 4500ft high to create a truly unique golfing experience, even if it doesn't improve your golf! It was a pleasure having you on board, thank you for choosing us and I will be sure to pass on your kind words to the rest of the team. Kind Regards, The Over The Top Team

Just pure magic from the start to end. Welcoming customer service and an entertaining pilot for the day showing us the local sites from the air. It all started with a landing at the top of the Remarkables and ended with three of the top Central Otago vineyards. See Queenstown from a different perspective and travel like Rockstar's!
