Good fun

Fly up to the Tasman glacier in a ski-plane & return in a helicopter. We had a snowball fight but no-one else wanted to join in. The top of Mount Cook was in cloud but we got good views of the other mountains. Note that its a flight to the glacier, not round Mount Cook.

Very disapponting ...Not worthy for ur $$$

It was very disappointing experience. Ive done heli tour before in NZ and aware it depends on weather condition. However I never thought it can be used as dodgy excuse. You better keep that in mind.
