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.

Best of both worlds with heli + ski plane combo!

This was our most expensive tour during our NZ honeymoon, but it was well worth it and glad we got some savings by booking through BookMe. The combo helicopter + ski plane tour is an awesome package since you get to see the glaciers differently. We departed on the helicopter, admired the vast landscapes around Tasman Glacier, landed and hung around for pix, then departed with the ski plane where we soared the skies and saw the peaks of the mountains. Both pilots were professional and we felt safe the entire time. It's recommended to go on at least 1 plane tour during your trip to NZ, and we're glad we did it in Mt Cook. We considered Milford Sound and Fox Glacier, but the weather in Milford is more rainy/cloudy so more chances of cancellations, and although Fox Glacier is on the other side of Mt Cook, we preferred the landscape views in Mt Cook better. There are a lot of tour operators but we're glad we chose Inflite. The staff are exceptional and correctly predicted that the weather would clear up and we'd have a fantastic flight (since it was rainy the previous day). Highly recommended!

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.

Nice Glacier landing & propeller flight

The glacier landing was absolutely amazing. The helicopter ride is a lottery. 2 people sit in front with a great view, 4 people in the back with 2 window seats and 2 in the middle. The right window seat had views of the mountain not the glaciers or mount cook but at least you have something to look at. I had to sit in the back, in the middle so basically I had a great view of people having a great view and some glimpses of a mountain glacier. So that part was disappointing. The spot where you land is amazing, white glacier as far as you can see. The propeller flight back was very nice. Cool to take off from a glacier and everybody has a window seat. The best seats are on the right in my opinion because of the views of the glaciers and mount cook. The left side has a nice valley view though. I liked it overall but as I stated, the helicopter flight is a lottery.
