Spectacular views of the mountains, which to me looked like chocolate cake topped with meringue. The pilots were friendly and the plane was comfortable

We very much enjoyed our trip to Milford Sound. We had perfect weather (which I know isn't controlled by the tour operator) but the tour was great in every other way, too. Good communication before the trip, on time pick up and flight departure. The...More

We booked online on 12 August, 6 weeks before our travel. Each time we did a weather check we were told 'they weren't flying today'. By some miracle we were able to go to Milford Sound with Air Milford on our last day in Queenstown....More

We did the Fly-Cruise-Fly option but would also recommend Fly-Cruise-Coach option. You are very safe in the hands of an experienced pilot with great personality! We will be coming back as Milford Sound is nothing short of addicting!

We went in May and we were in Queenstown for three nights. I can safely say to fly in to Milford sound... do the boat tour and fly back the same afternoon. It is not worth the bus trip. Milford Air was who we used and it... More
