Amazing flight from Queenstown over the glaciers, to Milford Sound. Followed by an interesting tour of the fjord on a small tour boat, much more intimate than some of the tours available. Followed by another short flight to get to the Dart River jet boat experience. Great fun day - highlight of our holiday.

I have previously been from Queenstown to Milford Sound by road and although it is a very scenic drive it is a very long day trip. This time we decided to do a fly cruise fly tour with Milford Sound Scenic Flights and it was every bit as good as we had hoped. We booked online which was very easy... More

Fly over to the sound, get a great aerial view of the mountains, glaciers and fjords, then cruise the sound to see wildlife, etc.

We decided to fly back from Milford Sound to Queenstown. We had a long bus trip back to Queenstown so we decided to take the flight as we wanted to escape the bus.

many thanks for your review. Although the Coach trip to Milford Sound is a stunning trip and we highly recommend it we could not agree more that after the Coach and boat cruise there is no better way to get back to Queenstown than via our 40 minute scenic flight! Thanks again! More

A very professionally run and very efficient operation. Certainly the best and quickest way to get to see Milford sound. The trip there is just as spectacular, if not more so since you get a great view of the glaciers if the weather is good. Saying that it is very dependent on the weather since landing at Milford is purely... More

Me and my friend took a Real Journey tour bus to Milford Sound and was planning to take bus back, but we changed our mind to take a plane back and lucky we did because the scenery from the plane was just out of this world

Worth paying a premium for. Once in a lifetime experience. Also the staff was very cool, on top of their stuff. Super recomended. We did chopper on the way to milford and then plane on the way back. I would skip the cruise, but if you do go bring some wine and food!
