Another company I was travelling with pulled out so Glenorchy Air stepped up and delivered the goods. Fantastic service and a very good pilot. The views we were shown were marvellous. It was my first time in a plane of this size and it didn’t disappoint. Well done team!

Kia Ora Stewart, Thanks for writing such a great review of your trip. I am so glad that we were able to get you out on a trip with us. We are so lucky that we live in such a beautiful region and loving showcasing it to our passengers. If your ever back in Queenstown maybe you can join us on a scenic flight to Mt Cook or Stewart Island to see even more of the South Island from above. Kind Regards, Jasmine & The Glenorchy Air Team

Hi Clare Thanks very much for your kind review - it is fantastic to show people around our wonderful part of NZ. Next time we can show you Mt Cook or Stewart Island, or perhaps Mt Aspiring at sunrise! Thanks again Megan

Amazing day, magical views and great way to see Milford Sound. Jim, our pilot was super friendly, knowledgeable about the scenery and the flying was very comfortable. We loved flying over the glaciers. Our kids loved it, highly recommend the whole experience.

I'm glad they (and you) enjoyed it. Those glaciers can even keep a kid's interest! Happy I could help. Jim
