Originally scheduled for the day before, I took this trip the day I was to leave Queenstown and drive up to Franz Josef (about 5 hours). I nearly bailed due to the drive I had ahead of me, but was SO GLAD I didn't.. The short flight offers panoramic views of many mountain ranges (our pilot and guide shared facts... More

We took a Real Journeys Fly/Cruise/Fly tour to Milford Sound, and this was among the top 5 highlights of our Australia/New Zealand vacation. The flight to Milford Sound was about 35 -40 minutes, and we flew over snow covered mountain tops, alpine glaciers, and waterfalls, stunning views. Their were maybe 10 or 12 of us in the prop driven plane,... More

This was certainly worth the money. We were happy we took the bus ride down, to see all that beautiful country. All the waterfalls, as it had rained the day and night before. We spent the night on the two masted sailboat. The next day was clear skies, and we were able to fly out as planned. Just the two... More

We were lucky to have a perfect day for flying. Our pilot, Corey, was a skilled, engaging and reassuring died over the mountain passes and through the gorges. The flight – coupled with the Milford sound cruise – was a highlight of 50 years of global travel

What a day. We did the Milford Sound flight, boat trip and the Dart Riverjet boating in the one day. Our pilot, Aaron, was just lovely and really looked after us. He initially flew us over to Milford Sound and then organised us onto the boat. However, he was also there to pick us up and fly us back to... More

Warm, engaging, and free with the infomation, he... More

We were so lucky to have the perfect day for Milford - even the pilot had his camera with him! We flew in, tramped to the waterfalls, did the boat trip & flew back. Such a day of amazing experiences - fabulous

Didn't know it could get even more beautiful from the air. Also, the pilots make a point of showing you the best without a lot of extra moves that might make you air sick. Absolutely loved hiking instead of taking a boat in between the flights. Really, it is the best thing you can do while in the Southland- with... More
