We took the fox glacier helicopter tour
We took the fox glacier helicopter tour. It was an absolutely amazing experience. All members of the crew and friendly and super accommodating. I would recommend this tour every time. Our tour guide was very chilled and down to earth which made the experience so much more enjoyable.
Got great tickets for the heli hike at a discount price better than anyone else
Got great tickets for the heli hike at a discount price better than anyone else. Unfortunately, the heli hike was cancelled due to weather but ExperienceOz was quick to respond back to my query for a refund and is processing it with the organisers of Heli Hike.
