A wonderful, memorable trip - we absolutely loved it! The pilot was great, very chatty and enthusiastic. We took the 4 hour trip to Orakei Korako which turned out to be amazing. Landing and taking off on the river was awesome and felt very special - it was so smooth. If you dont do anything else, do this!
