Our family of 6 took the fly - cruise - fly trip from Wanaka to Milford Sound. We had a lovely day. We were the only ones on our plane. The pilot pointed out all the landmarks below. It was just gorgeous to see the mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers from the air. The cruise on Milford sound was fantastic. We were on one of the smaller boats which was so great because they could get up close to the sides of the fjord. He took us up so close to the big waterfall that the boat was sprayed with all the water. It was so peaceful.
We opted for this trip because I couldn't bear the idea of being on the road for so many hours to take a coach there. The day we went was right after a storm and it was very windy. A couple of us were a bit air sick on the way back. I'm so glad we chose to take this trip with this company. It couldn't have gone any better.
