What a great experience! Seeing Queenstown from the ski was amazing. The helicopters are fitted with many windows (even on the roof) which allow for an amazing view from all seats. The pick up and drop off from the hotel was smooth and appreciated. Seeing fresh snow on the alpine mountain was a highlight of my stay.

Breathtaking, surreal, just incredible! Mountains look great from the ground but from above? It’s a whole other world.you feel so humbled and it is really quite overwhelming being surround by such beauty. Staff and our pilot were informative and friendly. You park on top of a nosy mountain and can see the whole range surrounding you. It’s magical. You get about 10 minutes to take some really great pictures. I know these scenic tours are pricey but they’re worth every penny. The best thing I’ve ever done.

I booked a last minute trip with the Helicopter Line on Queens birthday oMnday. The entire operation from the phone booking through to the flight was completely professional and friendly. Our pilot Gerard was a great guy with a fab sense of humour and lots of knowledge and I felt completely safe. The flight is incredible. You see the gorgeous Queenstown and surrounding mountain area from up high including a landing on a peak with super views. Spectacular experience and shouldn't be missed. I'll definitely return and do another flight with them and can't recommend The Helicopter Line highly enough.

What a spectacular flight! We the perfect blue sky day for our pilot, Ben, to show us the best of Queenstown. The landing close to Cecil peak was out of this world, with panoramic views of lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. Cannot recommend highly enough. A massive thanks to Haley, Simon and of course Ben for this wonderful experience. Will recommend highly to all!

Our family of 5 including an 11 year old loved the tour. We chose the 30 min. ride so we could land on the mountain and take photos. The pilot was professional, friendly and informative. The ride was smooth and we all loved it.
