A must!!

INFLITE deserve more than 5 stars, their ground service is second to none. Then comes the flite and the whole experience for a first time heli-passenger is beyond words - landing on the Glacier was a bucketlist ticked - the pilot is one of the most experienced of all pilots - truly fantastic!!

Spectaculars view of Mt Cook and Tasman Glaciers

It was our first time flying with a helicopter, the view was amazing and breathtaking. A must-do and tick off bucket list for whoever like to be adventure. The only draw back is the flying time is not really that long, but the stopover on a slop that look like a ski field slop was more than 15 minutes. We did not get to fly over the top of the mountain which was a bit disappointed. Also, the experience with the pilot was not that pleasant and only talking with the passenger at the front row and not much interaction with the back row. The pilot presume that we couldn't speak English and repeatedly told us not to touch this and that otherwise if broken we will need to pay more than the ticket price. The company was really unorganise and rang to ask in the morning if we could change the schedule flight time a bit earlier. We accommodated and rushed to the airport and reschedule our trip to ensure that we can catch the flight. There was no compensation like another discount voucher or maybe a welcome drink for doing that. Really feel like they value our time. They just want to fill the helicopter with at least 4 passengers and we are a group of three. The view on the way to the airport is a must stop and see before this flight. For summer flight, you don't actually need to wear a lot of warm clothes as it was pretty warm and sunny up the hill. But sunglasses is a must-have to prevent your eyes from damage The ground staff lady was really friendly and felt welcoming, but we were put off by the pilot and the short flight time but long stopover time. Maybe look for another company in the future if want to try similar activity. Really not worth the money even after discount.

Best experience of the trip

Awesome is the word. The flight around the glacier and the landing on it inspire awe. This has to be one of the most beautiful spots in the whole country and we will definitely be coming back here again.
