What to expect
In the early morning, your climate-controlled coach picks you up from designated locations in Queenstown, then sets out for Milford Sound. Along the route, get great photo ops at the Mirror Lakes, Knobs Flat, Eglinton Valley, Monkey Creek Bridge, and the Chasm. You'll also stop in Te Anau to stretch your legs and have your morning tea. Upon arrival in Milford Sound after four hours of driving, board your boat for the 2-hour sightseeing cruise. Soak in the scenery of dramatic fjords and snow-capped mountains as your boat glides along the water. When your cruise returns, transfer to the airstrip in Milford Sound to catch your flight back to Queenstown. Get aerial views of Fiordland National Park, an immense land of rugged mountains, massive glaciers, dense forest, and numerous lakes. When your plane lands in Queenstown, your tour ends with drop-off at your accommodation. Have the option to upgrade to add a picnic lunch.

Best activity ever!
Jan 2020 • Solo
I've been living in Queenstown for some years now, and have done amazing things here. But flighing over the mountains to Milford Sound was one of the most incredible activities I've ever experienced here. I've got to see some incredible landscapes and waterfalls without having to climb for day. I felt really safe with the pilot, she seemed so confident on what she was doing. She also knew a lot about New Zealand landscape and nature, explaining us what exactly we were seeing. Also, thecrew is very friendly, willing to help you any time.
I'd totally recommend this flight.

Excellent trip
Jun 2019 • Couples
Stunning views as you travel across the mountain range in a coach. Very friendly and knowledgeable coach driver. Excellent cruise up the Milford sound with very picturesque views of the surrounding mountains. Dolphins riding the bow wave was awesome. The weather conditions were good enough to be able to fly back across the mountain range again with absolutely stunning views.

We took the Milford Sound tour going by coach, doing the cruise and returning by plane. What an amazing experience!!! Everything is beautiful, the roof of the bus is a glass so you can take a look at the scenery, the cruise between the fjords is incredible and the flight back is the best way to close a day like this...

Great Service
Jan 2018
I think I could have rated this tour excellent, weather permitting. Unfortunately the mountains were socked in, so we were unable to fly back. But the bus driver was a hoot---and super safe! No signs of boredom in spite of the number of times I'm sure he's done the trip. The cruise thru Milford was first-rate;very professional crew. And the tour company was very prompt in returning the portion of the cost of the cancelled flight. Highly recommend!

Many thanks for your review. It is unfortunate that you were not able to fly back with us and hopefully you will be back in the future so you could try again. Many thanks for your comments on the Bus as it is still a scenic trip despite the weather. Thanks again!

Return flight cancelled, spent 10 hours on the coach
Jan 2018 • Family
We booked a coach/cruise/fly from Queenstown.

THE COACH JOURNEY
The coach to journey to Milford Sound takes around 5 hours with rest breaks. Along the way there is some spectacular scenery.

MILFORD SOUND
There is absolutely nothing at Milford Sound so make sure you take some food or buy the picnic pack.

The food in the picnic pack and at the main stop on the way is extremely basic (like a petrol station sandwich from 20 years ago) so it is well worth taking your own food.

THE CRUISE
There are not many seats on the outside of the boat (it is clearly geared up for bad weather) so try to get on the boat first if the weather is good.

The views are good but after spending a week driving around Queenstown not as impressive as they would be if this were the first place visited.

FLIGHT
Our flight back to Queenstown was cancelled because of bad weather.

We only discovered that there had been no flights that day when we arrived at Milford Sound.

We would like to have known this was the case before we left Queenstown because we would never knowingly signed up for 10 hours on a coach.

HotAir balloon companies (who are also dependent on the weather) confirm that they will be flying the night before by asking people to check their web page or call to an answer phone to get a weather update in case the trip is cancelled.

Thanks for reviewing your trip with us. I do apologise that we were unable to fly back due to the weather. Unfortunately we are not able to make weather calls the day before as we make weather calls for all of our flights 1 hour prior to the departure due to the ever changing nature of the Milford Sound Weather. As we have to book the coach for our Coach Cruise Fly passengers we are also not able to cancel bookings on the day as this is within the cancellation policy of the coach provider. I hope that you are back in Queenstown at some point so we have another chance to get you on the flights with us. Thanks again
