This was definitely one of the best activities we've ever done as a family. The flight was incredible - breathtaking scenery from the comfort of a fantastic aircraft along with outstanding service both in the air and on the ground. Our pilot Antony was awesome at explaining all the details of the areas we flew over. It's a stunning part of the world and this is definitely the best way to experience it. If you're reading these reviews like I did before we booked to decide if this trip is right for you - my advice is just do it. This was a huge highlight during our holiday in the Queenstown area, a fantastic experience from start to finish. The cruise through Milford Sound is excellent too. The combination of flying in and out with the cruise in the middle is awesome. The service and attention to detail from Milford Air really took this whole experience to the next level. From hotel pickup to check-in to flying over beautiful wilderness we really felt looked after and so did the other people flying with us. They're really committed to making sure everyone has a fantastic experience. If I had to pick a highlight it would be the flights in and out of Milford Sound. Just amazing.

We had the most amazing day with Air Milford. They picked us up from Queenstown and promptly checked us in. The flight was stunning, we had fantastic views of the mountains and our pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. we had a lovely short walk around to the wharf. Milford itself was breathtaking and it was a great cruise. I fell so lucky we had the option of seeing it in a day. Thank you so much Air Milford!

absolutely amazing way to see the southern alps, sounds and lake wakatipu. Service and communications were superb, we were in Queenstown for a couple of days and the Air Milford team were great at shuffling our day so we got the best weather possible. a long bus ride was only going to put my kids to sleep but the flight had them looking at the beautiful scenery and landscapes from take off to landing.

Dear Traveller, Thank you for sharing your review of Air Milford with the TripAdvisor community. We could not be happier to know that you enjoyed your trip over the Southern Alps, Milford Sound, and Lake Wakatipu. Weather in this region can certainly complicate things at times, but we are thrilled that we were able to work with your family to find you the best weather window! The scenic flight is an especially great and enjoyable option for families with children who may or may not be able to sit through the long bus ride, and it is pretty wild to think that a 5-hour bus ride can be accomplished in a 35-minute scenic flight! On behalf of the entire Air Milford team, we thank your for endorsing us to future travellers and wish you all the best on your next adventure. Sincerely, Sara

Such a stunning day to fly to Milford Sound, all staff were very professional and happy to help, Tommo our pilot was amazing, very informative and professional. Stunning trip on Southern Discoveries boat down the sound, bit windy but you can't pick the weather. Seen seals, got wet under waterfall which was an amazing experience. Staff on boat were lovely. Would recommend to anyone wanting to do this trip
