“A must - breathtaking experience!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were considering driving to Milford, but were put off by the 10 hour return trip from Queenstown. We saw a great deal from Air Wakatipu on bookme.com and decided at the last minute to fly. Words can not describe how breathtaking the views are. Gareth - our Top Gun pilot was brilliant. Have to say Milford Sound is beautiful but the highlight of the trip was the flight. Highly recommended!!

“Epic Views & Friendly Service”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

What a great expierence! Flying is the best and only way to see Milford Sound in my opinion. Gareth, our pilot was very friendly and knew all landmarks and pointed them out to us. The flight felt really safe and comfortable. The entire expierence was flawless and really well organised. Thanks!
