My family and I had the absolute pleasure of joining Glenorchy Air for a sunrise Mount Aspiring flight. Words cannot describe how beautiful it was. Completely awestruck and speechless the whole time. Well worth the early start! Thank you for putting a few nervous flyers at ease and showing us just how beautiful our country is.

We had an incredible day doing the fly/cruise/fly from Queenstown to Milford Sound. The scenery was all round amazing, seeing the snowcapped mountains & seals, dolphins & waterfalls on the cruise. We loved the commentary given by Will our pilot & the day ran so smoothly. Extremely cost effective for a 4-5 hrs of fun.

Was booked on a fly/cruise/fly package but weren't able to do the cruise due to weather. We chose to do the flight only and so glad we did. The pilot was great and so knowledgeable. Views were incredible, simply breathtaking

Hi Navigator34351611815 Thank you for flying with us. I am sorry that we were unable to get you on the ground in Milford for the cruise. It is fantastic to see that you enjoyed the alternative Milford Overflight. Jim was your pilot for that departure and I have passed your great feedback on to him. Thanks again for flying with us and we hope to see you again in the future Regards James Stokes MD - Glenorchy Air

Fantastic flight to and fro' Milford Sound with James. He gave us a knowledgeable detailed commentary with lots of extra interest information. We Included a picnic lunch deal (generous) as well and this was provided on the Southern Discovery cruise which also had a great commentary. A superb experience.

Hi Jen Thanks so much for your support and for your review. I have spent the last 9 years flying around Fiordland and I still learn new information about the incredible scenery that we fly over. We don't follow a script. All of our pilots and staff have their own commentary which is always being developed in order to add our own personal touch to our passengers' experience. I'm pleased to see that you also had a great time on the cruise with southern discoveries, I will be sure to pass your good feedback on. We hope to see you again on a future trip to Queenstown Regards James Stokes MD - Glenorchy Air
