I would recommend this trip to anybody as it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had. The helicopter ride was enough of a thrill in itself, but the hike too was just a fantastic experience. Our guides, San and Lauren, were knowledgeable, professional and sympathetic to the needs of our group which had varying degrees of ability. I was given all the equipment I needed before I left and felt warm and comfortable the whole time. The only regret I had was having to come back down!Reviewed by: Stephen L, Singapore, November 2013
Heli Hike was fantastic throughout. The guide was brilliant explaining how glacier was formed. I couldn't ask for more.Reviewed by: Suzanne C, April 2013
We missed out on doing this trip four years ago becouse the weather beat us but it was worth the wait. We had a brilliant guide (Cliff) who knew his stuff and encouraged us throughout to make the best of our time on the glacier. One of the best bits was the flight up as we went up over the glacier and then went into a sharp decent to where we were dropped off.Reviewed by: PAUL H, United Kingdom, April 2013

Excellent guide with great sense of humour made it especially enjoyable trip.
He encouraged and helped the more cautious members of the party and led us to some beautiful areas of blue ice.
