        Fantastic Trip to Milford Sound
        Wow! What a wonderful experience! Our flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound is undoubtedly the most spectacular flight we have ever taken. The mountain scenery was amazing and the clouds playing with the peaks looked almost unreal. The plane was a Cessna Caravan which was big enough for the job but still gave great views out the windows. Our pilot Tom was very professional. The cruise up the Sound was great and the boat was able to approach towering cliffs and waterfalls very closely. A truly beautiful place. I highly recommend this tour!

        Unbelievable scenery
        The flight to Milford was out of this world! Our pilot, Tom, was great and let us know what we were seeing just outside our windows. The boat cruise was also wonderful, with an up close waterfall experience being the highlight. We only wished the flight was longer! If you only have a day in Queenstown, do this tour!

        Had an amazing half day flight and cruise with Air Milford. Our pilot Anthony was excellent. Had lots of interesting information for us and pointed out the sights to see from the plane. A must do if you are in Queenstown.

        Phenomenal experience to see Milford Sound by plane and boat in one morning
        Phenomenal experience with a very experienced pilot! Don’t miss this opportunity if you’re in Queenstown! The flight to Milford sound was incredibly dramatic with lake views and mountain views. We also circled out over the Tasman sea and flew over Milford sound to our landing strip. From there a short ride to the boat cruise. The cruise took you up close to numerous waterfalls and scenic views. it even included the sight of some fur seals basking on the rocks. We could not have asked for a better experience. Tom our pilot was fantastic on both flights. Highly recommend this trip!

        What could we name hospitality combined with professionalism?...Air Milford, I guess.
        Back in October, our family flew with AirMilford on the return from Milford Sound, as part of a day tour to that location, in Fiordland National Park. Our pilot was Antony Sproull, a member of the family that owns and operates AirMilford. Being an airline captain, myself, I could not but notice Antony’s extreme professionalism and competence, two essential traits for any pilot to which he also added the traditional good spirit and welcoming stance we systematically observed throughout our 1-month stay in New Zealand. Our oldest, took the right front seat and Antony made a point of adding detailed commentaries about the technical aspects of the flight for my son’s benefit, while also managing to do the traditional intercom narration covering ground features and relevant stories about the places we flew over. Arriving in Queenstown, I was again very impressed how AirMilford facilities were top notch and very well kept, while all the planes in the fleet that were present seemed in immaculate condition. All in all, this was a very impressive and enjoyable experience, and I can only but wholeheartedly recommend AirMilford for your air travel needs in the region. Keep up the good work and...Safe flights!

        Highly professional pilot
        Fantastic experience in a 10 seater plane piloted by Hugh Sproull. He provided excellent commentary after providing a thorough safety overview. Flight from Milford Sound to Queenstown only took a short 35 minutes. We had wonderful weather which allowed us to view the sound and surrounding mountains with clarity. Personnel at the airport terminal were professional and helpful. Highly recommend this reputable company for an air transfer from Milford sound to Queenstown.

        A day to remember ⭐️
        Just a huge shout out to Air Milford for the most incredible day - a real trip to remember. Our pilot Antony and the rest of the team both on the flight & cruise were absolutely fantastic. It was an absolute trip of a lifetime. The flight was magical passing over the Southern Alps and the cruise (& the picnic lunch provided) were excellent. Not at all overcrowded which we’d heard lots of the cruises are. Huge thanks to everyone at Air Milford for day we’ll never forget. Highly recommend to anyone & everyone :)

        Epic tour
        One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The tour was absolutely perfect being able to fly over the mountains and see the waterfalls during the cruise. Incredible. Photos don’t even do it justice it was so gorgeous it can barely be described. Must go and experience for yourself!

        Awesome views but poor commentary
        Awesome views but a shame I and others couldn’t hear commentary. The pilot talked a lot but because the plane was so noisy we couldn’t hear about 90% of what he said. The plane had speakers but nothing came out of them ! So we had no glue as what he was saying for the whole trip. Not worth the money

      The entire experience was magical, made even better by the amazing service we received the moment we stepped through the door to the pilot who was informative and friendly and made the whole trip so much more memorable for myself and my girlfriend. Planes were brand-new and beautiful inside with great viewing opportunities through the large windows and spacious fuselage when compared to the other planes we saw from other companies once we landed in Milford. The cruise and the cruise crew were also hilarious informative and super friendly. I shall step up from the other service industry types we encountered in Queenstown. At the time the road was closed but this was never an option for us as we wanted the scenic flight which went above and beyond our expectations.

      Dear Bbartz, Thank you for sharing your review with the TripAdvisor community. We are so pleased that we were able to exceed your expectations and take you above and beyond (awesome pun)!! Our pilots love flying our state of the art Cessna Caravans in the mountains and with their high wings, they make for incredible machines for flight seeing in the Southern Alps. So, we are really pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the experience of soaring above snow capped peaks, from the comfort of your leather seat, in an airconditioned cabin. It is awesome to hear the you had a great time on the cruise in Milford too, we are very proud to work with the best cruise providers in Milford Sound and we absolutely agree that they provide an excellent service. On behalf of both the Southern Discoveries (cruise provider) and Air Milford, thank you for choosing to fly with us and all the best for your future adventures. Sincerely, Mary, Air Milford.

      Dear Cassienicholson, Thank yo for taking the time to review Air Milford on TripAdvisor. We couldn't be prouder to receive your gracious feedback and know that you had a spectacular time visiting Milford Sound aboard our Milford Sound Fly/Nature Cruise/Fly trip. How fortunate to see dolphins in the fiord too - that certainly puts a cherry on the top of the day! The weather is one of our greatest challenges, we fly about 70% of the time, because flying to Milford Sound is weather dependent. Milford Sound receives over 7 meters of rain annually and is one of the wettest places in the world, so we try our very best to communicate with our guests if the weather is looking bad, so that they don't miss out on experiencing Milford Sound during their visit. On behalf of the whole Air Milford team, thank you for choosing to fly with us and all the best for your future adventures. Sincerely, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford. ✈️NZ🗺️🥝📷😍⚓🛩️🐬

      We were very lucky to have brilliant weather and the whole day was fabulous. On arrival at the small airport we were given a very friendly welcome and a briefing about the trip (what to look out for etc). We then headed to the plane (I think there were 12 of us) and took to the skies. The views were sensational and the pilot gave us a commentary as we flew. We landed at the tiny airstrip and boarded the boat and had an amazing trip across the Sound. We were lucky enough to see a pod of bottlenose dolphins playing at the front of the boat and some seals basking on the rocks. The scenery - towering cliffs and beautiufl waterfalls - is breath-taking. We then flew back. An awesome day. Would thoroughy recommend this company, they were extremely professional, friendly and made us feel very relaxed.

      We did the fly/cruise/fly option and the flights both ways were the most amazing views and scenery I've ever seen - got some great photos from the plane. It was fun going in a little 6 seater Cessna, it felt safe and well maintained. All the staff and the pilot at Milford Air were very friendly and accommodating. Our pilot Tom was very knowledgeable and a great guide, he even waited and took some photos of us next to the plane when it was time to fly back. The cruise was great too, highlights were getting close views of some seals and getting splashed by the Sutherland falls.

      Would definitely recommend the fly/cruise/fly option with Milford Air - you can't beat the views from the plane, and you save *a lot* of time not having to drive to Milford Souind.

      Simply amazing…..

      It truly is a once in a lifetime bucket list of must do’s whilst in Queenstown and priced well within budget, an awe inspiring flight with Hank over the mountain ranges in the pictured Cessna , filled with natural beauty and breathtaking views before descending into Milford sound then onto a nature walk before cruising the sound, filled with wondrous waterfalls (some of which you can touch if your game) fur seals and natural beauty aplenty. Back on the plane to Queenstown on a different route overlooking more wondrous beauty that only this part of the world can offer. It truly is hard to put into words the breath taking views throughout the journey to and from Milford Sound. Highly recommend over a 10hr return winding coach tour, there and back in just hours and looked after by true friendly professionals in Hank, Kerry and staff. Thank you air Milford for not only an unforgettable afternoon but also for a very very safe experience ….. no wonder you are voted number 1 for this trip. 👍

      An absolute highlight of our trip! Our pilot Tom was a great host, he shared so much valuable information and showed us some incredible spots during our flights to and from Milford Sound. We felt so well looked after. Eveyrthing was organised for us, including a reserved table on the top deck of the cruise. My partner was stoked after playing co-pilot on the return trip, he was blown away by the whole experience - so much so, he decided to propose when we got home from our amazing day. Thank you Air Milford!

      This tourist activity rates as one of the best we have been on. Air Milford were so professional and easy to deal with.
      We actually went a day earlier than we had booked as they rang us to advise the weather was closing in and did we want to go a day earlier. I am so glad we did. We flew in beautiful clear skies and it was a treat to to Milford Sound bathed in sunshine. Tomo our pilot was experienced and informative.
      Bring plenty of warm clothing as it gets very cold and windy on the boat if you want to go outside on the deck.
      I totally recommend Air Milford if you are considering this trip.

We try our very best to communicate with our guests and make the best of the weather conditions, endeavoring to not have guests miss out on visiting this incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site. We are so pleased to hear that you were able to be flexible with your itinerary and take us up on the offer of going flying a day early. Thank you for your recommendation to future travelers to bring a jacket and wrap up warm. In my opinion, while on the cruise boat, the best viewing of the fiord is done from the open air decks, but, even in summer it can be chilly outside. We have plenty of space aboard the plane for guests to bring a jacket, or a bag with extra layers and we defiantly recommend brining them along with you. On behalf of your pilot Tomo and the Air Milford team, thank you for choosing to fly with us and for your endorsement to future travelers. All the best, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford. ✈️NZ🗺️🥝📷😍⚓🛩️🐬

      We did the fly cruise fly option. Well worth it. Especially as at the moment it’s an 8 hour round trip only by an organised coach through to Milford Sound after landfall that they’ve had. Views were spectacular. We booked the smaller boat cruise, again worth it. As due to decreased visitors numbers due to road closures to private vehicles there were only 14 passengers on the cruise!
      Due to calm sea conditions we got right out to the Tasman Sea, next stop Argentina!
      Well worth the whole experience.

      Dear Yorkshiremanabroad50 (I love your username!!), Thank you for taking the time to review Air Milford on TripAdvisor. We are so pleased to hear that you had an exceptional time on our Milford Sound Fly/Nature Cruise/Fly trip, this summer has been a bit of a whirlwind with wild weather severely damaging the road in & out of Milford, but you defiantly lucked out being able to fly to Milford whilst the road was closed. We 100% agree, the views experienced during both the scenic flights and the cruise are spectacular. On behalf of the whole team here, thank you for your kind review, we all wish you a fabulous time in Argentina! All the best, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford.

      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
