We had never been on a helicopter, hence we had researched what company to book with and we are so glad we chose this one!
The day before our trip we had to call reconfirm for a weather check.
Chris kindly asked if we would change our 10am booking to 3pm instead due to weather, we were more than happy to do this putting safety foremost.
We were picked up from our hotel half an hour before our trip and taken to the launch area located at the airport.
Inside we were warmly greeted and thanked for changing our time, then given a full safety brief for the trip.
We were permitted to take our camera and camcorder to capture everything, not many operators let you do this.
Our pilot "Andy" arrived and greeted with excitement, reiterating the safety points approaching and disembarking the helicopter.
Once on board the brand new helicopter, we were in the air in no time with earphones and microphones to ask questions and listen to the great commentary from Andy along the way.
The experience of viewing the landscape was jaw dropping, with snow as far as the eye could see and amazing given that in Queenstown it was 26 degrees!
We landed in snow and we able to get out and take pictures, throw snowballs and enjoy the views.
Andy took a company photo for us to view on our return.
After about 15 mins we were back in the air taking in more of the picturesque views.
Returning to the airport launch was the only negative,because we just wanted to keep on going it was so fantastic we didn't want it to end!!
Andy escorted us back into the office shook our hands and thanked us and showed us the photo he took together with a DVD of images and footage of what we had just experienced.
There was no pressure to buy, but at $25 it was great value as a souvenir from the experience of a lifetime.
HIGHLY recommend this and we can't wait to return!
