When I set up Delectable Tours, I wanted to work with a support other great businesses, and one of those is Pterodactyl Helicopters.
Mike and his team offer helicopter tours through the scenic areas of Ipswich, Brisbane, The Scenic Rim, Lockyer Valley, Somerset, Logan and Redlands regions. They regularly work with 63 on the ground experiences and each one is fantastic in their own right.
Mike, also know as Captain Mike is the Chief Pilot of Pterodactyl Helicopters. He is a character that will certainly enhance your experience. Mike’s passion is clear, he loves the flying, the people, and the challenge in finding new products that haven’t been done before. This passion and these products are exactly what have won the Pterodactyl Helicopter a number of awards including, Ipswich Chamber Tourism and events 2015 Runner-up, Ipswich Chamber Small Business of the Year 2016 Winner, and Ipswich Chamber Customer Service Award 2016 Runner-up.

Like us, their helicopter tours allows you to sample delicious local food and wine and meet real Australians along the way. They offer numerous helicopter experiences with everything from joy rides to group experiences and so much in between!
I think one of the unique helicopter tours they do are country pub crawls. You can choose a tour of three to five of the best country pubs in the region stopping for a beer at each pub and a great pub lunch at one. Who would have thought helicopter pub crawls were a thing? Amazing!
If you’re not a beer drinker, you might like to check out their wine tours. Mike and his team have hand-picked some of the region’s best boutique wineries to show you by helicopter. Their pilots will fly you in comfort while you sit back in the helicopter, relax and enjoy breathtaking views matched by premium quality wines served by the region’s finest winemakers where you can select a bottle of wine from each winery to take home. And, of course, you can’t go hungry, so they also include a two-course lunch.
Not only can you go wine tasting or beer tasting via helicopter, but you can also enjoy a romance or indulgence package. These are the types of tours we are also working together on.
They can customise tours to your requests, or you can enjoy one of their packages like the Total Indulgence Country Wine Tour.
This tour includes:
Hotel/airport transfers by limousine
Meals – Lunch
Wine tasting at 3 wineries by helicopter – all entrance fees mentioned on the program
