Marvellous helicopter ride. Courteous and welcoming staff. Michelle is sweet. Pilot informative and great. Thank you
Excellent way to view the bay of islands. Staff were very friendly and professional, went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience.
In a word 'fantastic'. Will worth the trip. The pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. A great experience.
The tour was fantastic! An absolute must do, even for those of us who are a little bit afraid of flying in a helicopter. The pilot was exceptionally professional and informative. Be sure to include the landing on top of the rock portion of the tour --- it is well worth it.
This is definitely the way to see the Bay of Islands! This was one of the highlights of our trip. The helicopter company was on time and the pilot was very informative. Would highly recommend.
This tour was brilliant. It exceeded our expectations. The scenery was breathtaking!
