    In my opinion this is a "must do" experience when visiting Queenstown. The whole package including pick up from our hotel to our drop off was seamless. The staff at the check in and especially our pilot Dean were helpful and very personable. The flight to Milford is a truly unique experience. Flying between mountain ranges and up beautiful and majestic valleys is a lifetime experience. The cruise on the Milford is also memorable. We are experienced boaties however this cruise showed us something a little different about our amazing coastline. The skipper was very informative without being obtrusive and gave us some amazing experiences. I fully recommend this tour. It was very good value for money.

    The flight in fine weather from great. The view is great. There was nothing to top it. However, I don't think it's okay that we were sitting on the wings on the return flight. Here I would have expected that the seats were exchanged and all guests had a clear view.

    There Milford flights team was great from start to finish. The experience worth every penny. ( we were lucky with the weather - light winds, no cloud.). Pilots great, the flights to and from even better than the wonderful Milford sound. Breathtaking mountains, emerald lakes and middle earth countryside. We felt blessed. Btw originally booked for bus trip which was cancelled due to road washout. Get your guide refunded within 2 days and set up our alternative booking. Painless.
