Booked private island trip for birthday. At reception asked to pay for trip although already paid online. Eventually got voucher numbers to prob payment made. Reception, transfer guide and pilot were friendly. Helicopter ride was short, felt like 5 min, to a private beach. I was disappointed, as I expected a private island at least 15 to 30 minutes helicopter... More

Really friendly group. Browney fixed up our mixup with our booking with no hassles, the software package on the iPad to book in was pretty impressive. The tour was fantastic around the Island, we would recommend doing the extra time, the information and commentary

We thoroughly enjoyed our flight over Vila on 7 June but were somewhat dissappointed in the duration. The commentary from our pilot was excellent and we enjoyed our brief history lesson. We booked through the cruise line and this was offered as 1.25hrs, one hour of which was spent waiting for the flight. Unsure if this is the fault of... More

Hi Shirley Thanks for the comment. We advertise the flight as a 7 min scenic and it is called a taste of Vila. The cruise line mentions 1.25hours in their tour description as this is usually the turnaround time from leaving the ship doing the flight and returning to the ship. Sorry for any confusion there on that behalf. Hope... More

We booked through cruise line - Great experience, wish we had taken the longer flight around the island, however the short one was the only one listed on the shore tours. If going on a cruise give the tour company a call and arrange it yourself. They are so helpful. Picked up from the ship taken to flight, then offered... More

My first helicopter trip an it was absolutely amazing. Our pilot immediately made me feel comfortable and he was very knowledgeable of the area. We flew up through the canons where we were dropped off at the beautiful summit gardens. Highly recommend

We loved our flight with Vanuatu Helicopters, from the time we approached the counter right through until touchdown everyone was so professional. Our taxi driver Georgie recommended the flight to us and we were so glad we listened to him. Seven minutes went by in a flash, next time we'll take a longer flight. It was awesome to see Port...

Saw there sign on street front advertising short flight for 99 Australian dollars. This price is false as when we went to book we we're told the price had increased. The company needs to correct signage and website immediately.
