Easy to have confidence in this company. We were briefed well, and jumped into our helicopters for a magnificent view of the Otago region. While the wind didn't allow us to land in the snow, we were impressed with pilots confidence Nd concern for our safety so we landed on Queenstown hill. We hit golf balls from the top and... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed the most amazing and incredible experience when we chartered a helicopter flight with Over the Top Tours in Queenstown. We were met on arrival at the airport by the happy and friendly Pedro for the short drive to the office. We were then given the option for different flights and met with James, a... More

I booked a Helicopter earlier this year to take my partner to the top of Cecil Peak to pop the question. From the outset the communication with Maddie and Pedro at the OTT office was easy going, friendly and followed up. On the day Pedro picked us up in their courtesy van - spotless and comfortable. When we arrived at... More

We had such an amazing flight. From the moment we entered the airport meeting space until the end of the flight was fun, friendly and so professional. We had 'Choppy' as our pilot and she was freaking awesome. Great lady and up for a laugh. We had so much fun. We got engaged on our flight which made it even... More

This was honestly such a unique experience. It is the only way to visit so many views and terrains in a short period of time. It gives you a taste of Queensland. You land on top of a glacier, on top of a waterfall, and everywhere between. The pilot was great and so were the snacks that he brought along

We didn't know what to expect never having been in a helicopter but from takeoff it was an incredibly seamless and relaxing adventure. My wife, son, and I took the flight from Queenstown Airport over the lake as far as the Dart River, then through mountain passes to land on a glacier, and over to a west coast beach before... More

We did the helicopter ride with the Milford Sound cruise and glacier landing. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and personable in an understated way. I would highly recommend Over The Top and this tour for everyone going to Queenstown. It is the best way to see and appreciate the natural beauty of the area. Standing on that icy glacier was...

My wife and I took an unforgettable flight from the Queenstown Airport, over the mountains - landing on a glacier between peaks at 9,000 feet on a beautiful sunny day - then flying to the West coast and landing on the beach and being at another area that you can't get to by motor vehicle. We then flew down the... More
