Many thanks for reviewing your recent trip with us. We absolutely agree that the Flights to Milford Sound are an awesome experience. You can experience some bumps at times when flying over Mountainous terrain but a few bumps are a small price to pay to experience the majestic scenery of Milford Sound from the air! Thanks again!

What a product! They picked us up at our hotel, drove to airport, put us on a plane within 5 minutes and gave us the most scenic flight of our life. We hugged the mountains edges and dove in to the very small runway at Milford sound. They took the long way to and from so we got more than... More

We had previously done the Milford Sound cruise so this time we chose the return flight, and it was just awesome. Excellent pilot Jake and the Cessna plane was as he said the Ferrari of the fleet. Breathtaking views and we landed at Milford Sound for 20 minutes before returning with a detour to see the waterfall. We were on... More

Our fly-cruise-fly to Milford Sound from Queenstown with Milford Sound Scenic Flights was simply breathtaking. A experience not to be missed or forgotten. We were lucky that the previous days poor weather had cleared up providing the opportunity to fly and see simply magnificent views.

Highly weather dependent but we got lucky with a clear enough day to fly from Queenstown. Great views and arrived in 45 minutes to board Mitre Peak to take the early cruise which sems like the most calm water and less crowded than arriving with all the busses. Amazing doesn't begin to describe it. So many waterfalls and mountain scenery,... More
