"We splurged and did the 3.5 hours tour that hit all the major attractions like the Milford Sound etc. We actually landed on a glacier and got out. Our pilot Dave was excellent and had fun behind the scenes info. We landed at 4 other LOTR sites too because the weather was perfect. I highly recommend this tour if you're a LOTR fan!"

Excellent tour! We had originally signed up for another type of tour, but the wonderful people at Heliworks let us know that weather was going to be a problem on that day, so they rescheduled us for this tour. Matt was our excellent and knowledgeable pilot pointing out different geology and geographic along the way. We had 3 landings and all 3 were incompletely different areas. I cannot say enough about this company from the welcoming front office staff to our flight with Matt. What an incredible experience! I highly recommend this Heliworks!

We did everything. Milford sound, earnslaw, glacier, and an alpine landing. It was the lord of the rings tour and it was worth every penny. If you are on the fence just do it. I will say that the Earnslaw Burn is quite amazing. Make sure you get a tour that you land here. They are the only company allowed to land there. We actually couldn’t fly the first day (weather)of our tour but Tori did such a great job accommodating us and found a solution. This was the highlight of our trip.
