Thank you! We really appreciate your amazing review, we are certainly lucky to fly our passengers to some of the most stunning locations in the world on a daily basis. The Milford & Fiordland Highlights is one of our favourites and most popular, due to the diversity in which you described - one minute your on a beach on the West Coast and next your hundreds of feet high on a frozen glacier! It was a pleasure having you on board with us and sharing our beautiful backyard, thank you for choosing us. I will pass on your kind words to Pedro & James and we look forward to welcoming you back to take your breath away again in the future! Kindest regards, Katie Over The Top Helicopters
