We have visited the sounds by road before but chose to fly this time. Queenstown was a bit overcast on take off but the sounds were bathed in sunshine for a perfect flight. For us it was a once in a lifetime experience and was truly breathtaking. Words cannot adequately describe it, so do try it out for yourselves, you will not be dissapointed. Recommended whole heartedly.

The sun shone the whole time as we flew to Milford Sound in a fixed wing aircraft. The flight is the only way to see the stunning scenery of Fiordland, landing at Milford is a thrill ride in its own, and the cruise on the sound was magical, with a knowledgable crew to help us understand the geology.

from start to finish a superb friendly and professional service.
picked up from our hotel bang on time, and dropped off @ the airport. met our pilot david who walked us to our Islander, and gave a safety brieifng. the flight was a little lumpy, but was never a problem.
lovely 2 hr crusie on milford sound, given an informative commentary, that was nver too invasive. fantastic scenery and waterfalls.
flight back was equally picturesque over the snow capped mountains, and down the lake back to queenstown. great day out, thanks guys!

My wife and I did a coach/cruise/fly back option from Queenstown to Milford Sound. The trip is well organized and the scenery is unbeliverably amazing. No need for more good words for the tirp. :-)

Only a little disappoint for us. Since we come from China, it is hard for us to catch entire information of commentary. It is understandable that there is no Chinese commentary because most visitors can communicate smoothly in English. I wish some documentaries in Chinese version can ben provided, and we can know more interesting information, and we also can show the trip in our hometown. Most of my friends will be interested with the trip. Is it a good idea for promotion!
