Hands down the BEST experience we had in Queenstown. Katherine is a great host and our pilot Phil did an outstanding job in making us feel comfortable and cracking a joke or twenty! From hotel transfer to the ledge landing & back again we could not fault the experience. The ledge landing was unbelievable - the view, the snow, and the thrill! Great job guys - we also added a Go Pro shot we took ☺

I cannot recommend Heli Tours high enough. The views were spectacular, the landing on the mountain was like something from the movies and our pilot (Phil) was a real classic local kiwi, who added character and fun to the trip. Definitely do it! You won't regret :)

Fantastic!! We got picked up from our accommodation by a friendly young girl who took us out to the airport. She was helpful and answered our questions about attractions/nightlife/restaurants/driving times ect. A huge asset to the company. The lady behind the desk, along with her hubby the pilot own the company. We got a quick safety briefing before heading out. We got strapped in, and handed our headsets. We took off and did a huge loop over the airport. The weather was perfect!! The views breathtaking!! We landed on top of Cecil Peak and were allowed to get out and take pictures, throw snowballs. The pilot took photos, and me being from the Aviation industry, i was able to ask lots of questions which he was more than happy to answer. We took off again and headed over Queenstown Central, before landing back at the airport. The whole experience was about 25-30mins, and was amazing!!

I will be back!!! Thanks Heli Tours Queenstown
