This is a great way to explore Milford Sound! Highly recommended - but be flexible with your trip as your flight may be cancelled/rescheduled due to weather conditions.

Spectacular views of the mountains, which to me looked like chocolate cake topped with meringue. The pilots were friendly and the plane was comfortable

Many thanks for your review. I think your description of the Mountains as Chocolate Cake topped in Meringue is probably the most unique way I have heard one of our passengers describe it! Thanks again for your review!

We very much enjoyed our trip to Milford Sound. We had perfect weather (which I know isn't controlled by the tour operator) but the tour was great in every other way, too. Good communication before the trip, on time pick up and flight departure. The...More

Wow wow wow! We did a fly-cruise-fly and it was amazing! The views you get from the plane are absolutely stunning! The cruise is so beautiful and relaxing. Best part was going almost under the waterfall! If you're going to Milford Sound, you've gotta fly....More
