I went on this cruise with my hubby & our ‘boat mad’ toddler. Was a really good time frame excursion to go on with an almost 3 yr old. Was neat having lots of space to wander around in, even with the Covid restrictions they made it very comfortable. There was a lot of space to move around on the boat & my son kept going up to the top deck to wave at the captain & eventually the captain kindly invited us in to look at everything. Was definitely the highlight of the trip for him! The scenery was absolutely magical.

Most incredible experience, from getting picked up from the hotel the friendly staff was very informative. I was slightly nervous as i had never been in a helicopter before but the staff and pilot made me feel at ease. The flight it self was very smooth and enjoyable, the pilot (Matt) was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed out cool landmarks. Overall very impressed would do it again next time we are back in queenstown.

We had the best guide!! He had so much enthusiasm and absolutely loves what he does. A fun filled half day. We saw the back drops of scenes used in filming the LOTR films, drove on an old gold mining road, drove on an old one lane gold mining equipment road through the mountains, panned for gold, and had morning tea riverside. We learned so much! Best half day tour of our month long trip.

This Cruise was amazing and fun, great commentary through out, a bit of rough seas but the captain knew what he was doing. Staff are really welcoming, Helpful and kind. Thank you.

This was my first time in a helicopter and it did not disappoint. This was a must do activity. You get to see so much more than you can ever grasp by land.
