I decided to liaise with Wanaka helicopters while planning my proposal to my partner. From the outset Nicky was incredibly helpful while also discrete to ensure everything ran smoothly on the day. We were flown up Roy’s Peak by Nick who went out of his way to give us the trip of a lifetime. He even managed to take photos of the proposal that will be cherished forever. I couldn’t speak more highly of Wanaka Helicopters and can highly recommend them!
