New Plymouth adventure tourism operators Heliview have bagged another award, this time from an international travel website.
TripAdvisor, which describes itself as the world’s largest travel website, has awarded the Breakwater Bay business a Certificate of Excellence.
Jolanda Foale, who runs the helicopter passenger service with her husband Richard, said she let out a big “wahoo” as she read the email advising them they had won.
“We really appreciate this award as a thank you back from our customers for our hard work and thanking us for their experience,” Mrs Foale said.
The award recognises hospitality excellence and is given to businesses that consistently achieve four or five star reviews from people who have used a service.
“We have received 28 reviews with 27 being excellent or five-star and one being very good of four- star,” Mrs Foale said.
