Magnificent scenic flight, especially with different return route; this is quite simply an unforgettable experience, somehow generating closeness and intimacy with these forbidding mountain peaks. Have flown into Queenstown on a number of commercial flights, but even after these inspiring arrivals the scenic flight was a wonderful treat. Pilot Peter seemed knowledgeable and gave a good commentary. The excitement of the landing at Milford it is hard to beat, but (Jucy) cruise is fine, with some awe-inspiring up-closes to the rock cliffs and waterfalls, and comfortable boat. Ok commentary but jokes wear thin after a while, and sometimes hard to hear what was being said. Then another flight....just wonderful. So glad we did this.
