Very expensive for the amount of time we flew and stayed in the glacier plus the driving all the way from Queenstown.

First time to experience helicopter ride and glacier which is amazing. All the crews are all friendly.

Thank you Lorna_R for your star rating and feedback. The cost of operating helicopters is not a cheap option unfortunately however we put great efforts into safety in our operation for all passengers and staff and only fly when conditions are safe and value for money with great views. Additional Department of Conservation fees we incur for landing in the Westland (Tai Poutini) National Park and government compliance costs do unfortunately add extra cost. I am please your first time helicopter experience was so amazing and thank you for your comment on our friendly crew. You will have some very memorable pictures from your experience. Thank you for flying with HeliServices.NZ
