We booked the fly/cruise/fly option to Milford sound. We left from Queenstown & the amount of time we saved was fantastic because who really wants to be stuck on a bus all day when there are so many other things you could be doing. So in that perspective it was fantastic however the plane we had had two large propellers... More

The cuise was very comfortable couple of... More

We knew we wanted to see Milford Sound but didn't know that best way to do it. Based on some research and a great advisor, James, at Happy Travels tour company. Basically you can take a bus tour and then tour the sound... about a 12 hour day. Or you can fly in, take the tour boat and fly back..... More

Partly it's the majesty of the destination, partly it's the amazing views from the air on the journey to and from Milford and partly it's because Milford Sound Scenic Flights saved the day after Glenorchy Air cancelled my trip the day before departure. The flight was amazing. I got to sit in the co-pilot's seat on the outbound journey, which... More

Early morning on the day of booking the scheduled 10.00 flight was delayed due to bad weather in Milford (despite great weather in Queenstown) - however we were rescheduled for 12.30 and that was it - orderly quick check in despite the 25 person going on 4 flights (due to delays). After briefing from Corey (pilot) we were on our... More

We were picked up at our Queenstown hotel at abou 7am and driven to the airport. After the formalities, we were introduced to the pilot who walked us to the aircraft, an Australian built light plane the GA8 Airvan. The pilot gave us the safety briefings and off we flew in a westerly direction across the Southern Alps towards Milford.... More

We flew over the sound and out over the west coast - the flight was stunning and so so calm - perfect for all ages. An absolutely fantastic way to see Milford Sound from all angles and to appreciate the true scale and beauty of the natural wonder.

Had an absolutely amazing scenic day on 17/4/17. Highlight was being gifted the co-pilot seat on our flight to Milford Sound! The snow capped peaks *speechless* The cruise around Milford and its astounding waterfalls was lovely, as was the flight back. Many thanks to our superb pilot Blair!

The flight was certainly one of the highlights. I have done the trip to Milford by road as well and I promise you the money to fly there and back is worth every penny. The views are spectacular and even though the ride can be a little bumpy the pilots are skilled and you always feel in safe hands. Like... More
