“Grand Greta Heli Bike Trip”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Being the weakest link in the group I was anxious about the Mountain biking. I was totally inexperienced but thoroughly enjoyed tho whole day from the helicopter ride to the feeling of smugness as we drove back to Twizel. Our guide exuded passion for the region and was full of information regarding flora and fauna and history . He was most encouraging regarding the biking giving me helpful tips .. enabling me to complete the ride with growing confidence !!

“Grand Greta Helibike Trip”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

February 2014. This trip surpassed expectations by quite a margin. Our guide ensured we were safe and also provided a very interesting commentary on the area. The helicopter ride is fun and allows access to a superb vantage point. Everyone including less experienced riders enjoyed the descent.

“Awesome Helibike trip out of Tekapo”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had a great half day MTB trip out of Tekapo in April 2012 with this outfit. After a pre-flight briefing we had an early flight up to the top of one of the mountains beside Tekapo. Only a 10 minute flight but great views over the Southern Alps. The view and sense of emptiness at the top of the mountain where we landed was truly awesome! However the best bit was to come - the descent... Quite steep for the first few km, but not too technical. As things eased off there were a few small river crossings and then a beautiful gentle down hill MTB ride across the grassland towards Tekapo. With a bit of "Lord of the Rings" sightseeing on the way. A really enjoyable morning MTB ride with a very professional outfit.
