If you can afford it do it. Nothing beats flying over a glacier area and getting out of a helicopter to see the beauty of the peaks close up. We planned to do the whole circuit but Franz Josef was shrouded in cloud so we flew up to Mt Cook area and over Fox Glacier. It is particularly good if you cannot do one of the glacier hikes. Booking was easy, the staff efficient and our pilot very professional and helpful. He ensured everyone had a chance to get good views by changing the seating arrangements when we re boarded our helicopter on the glacier snowfield.
