Just....wow!!

When i was trying to decide who to go with for this experience it was hard to decide. The reviews were either great or ok. I decided to go with Over the Top and have absolutley NO regrets!! Our driver was friendly, our welcome inside was super cute (cute dog alert), the team were very welcoming and our pilit, Ryan, was A-MAZ-ING!! He took the time to explain his plan. He had a back up plan if we couldnt get a landing. Then he had a back up plan to his back up plan! There isnt any point in getting grumpy if you dont get a landing. They do there best to get you one but no one can control the weather. We hovered for a little bit due to wind and other planes then he decided he knew where to take us to not only get an Alpine landing but also to get amazing views!! He was very informative, checked on everyone throughout the flight and gave us ideas on what to do next in queentown. The best experience and the best place to go to! Soo happy with the experience we had!!

EYE CATCHING! BEAUTIFUL!! SPECTACULAR!!!

Right from the start of arriving to the office, the receptionist is warm & welcoming. You then meet the Pilot for the flight who is very professional, friendly & reassuring for the venture ahead of us. After the H & S check completed it was awesome to have the group participation & shared choices of who got to sit in the front seat there & back, as I am sure this is not for all, but for those who go just for this experience, so thank you for the option. The Pilot then advises the optional preferences of destinations that are available at the time of flight, of course "it had to be snow, snow, snow" & that is exactly what we got. Jamie (pilot) was so friendly & informative on our flight, Everyone needs to go with this Professional Team. Highly Recommend to ALL!!! Thanks for the Perkys advise later that night, it was an Awesome Place to eat our meals & have some evening drinkies. Cheers Team I will tell everyone of your business, Oh..check out the Portrait on the Reception Wall..all feedback accepted.
