This is a MUST during your time in Queenstown. We took a heli tour to Milford Sound. What a remarkable view. There is no better way to see the natural beauty of New Zealand's mountain ranges. Our pilot Ben took us to see hidden lakes up near the mountain peaks, and took us to arms-length distanced from the ice-blue glaciers... More

On our first visit to Queenstown we decided to splash out on a heli tour of the Remarkables, including a mountain landing. I can't recommend these guys highly enough. From pick up to drop off, the service was superb, the staff and pilot were awesome - so friendly and knowledgeable and the views were absolutely breathtaking! This is a must-do... More

I chose this because friends went on it in January. There are lots of companies that do this. I found it quite expensive, $980. I did the Milford Sound trip with a 'glacier ' landing and a cruise on Milford Sound. As I am getting old (72), and with short legs,I found it very difficult to get into the helicopter... More

I would say this is a must do. The views are absolutely breathtaking & the flight is so much fun. Our pilot, Callum was friendly & really funny, he really made the flight that much better. The service from start to finish was great with all staff being really nice & friendly. If you are tossing up whether or not... More

Our scenic ride departed from the Coronet Peak and landed on The Remarkables. Scenery was so breath-takingly beautiful. Our pilot Gerard was easy-going and happy to chat on the flight. After we landed at Queenstown airport we were driven back to the town in a courtesy bus. Faultless service. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were due to do a scenic flight to Milford Sound with a different company but due to weather conditions it was cancelled. I still wanted to do some sort of scenic flight so I booked for the Remarkable helicopter flight. I booked it through 'The Station' and they organised a pick up shuttle from Queenstown to... More

The weather gods smiled upon us as we travelled from Queenstown to Milford Sound. Due to icy conditions we were unable to land on the glacier however our alternate landing site was just as breathtaking. Fantastic flight path, awesome pilot, stunning landscapes, you simply can't say you've seen New Zealand until you see it this way!

We took the tour - Remarkables Mountain Range Helicopter Flight from Queenstown. The service of the employees was pleasant however length of the tour is too short with boarding, flying to, landing on Remarkables and flying back from Remarkables, all within 20mins. Therefore it was not totally value-for-money. Would be better if the tour is ~45mins.

Well worth the money. After the disappointment of our Franz Josef glacier flight being cancelled our tour driver booked us on this as an alternative. The sun was shining so our morning flight was clear to go!! Our group went in a convoy of 3 helicopters which added to the spectacle. We landed next to some snow and had our... More

The Gods smiled on us giving us a beautiful day to fly out of Milford Sound after days of low cloud and rain. Our pilot was the consumate professional and gave us an excellent running commentary as we lifted out of Milford, flew close to Bowen Falls and then climbed out of the Sound. We landed and disembarked on the... More
