Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The whole thing was incredible. The helicopter flight was beyond believable, and the cruise was spectacular. Can't recommend it enough!

    Absolutely made our trip to Queenstown for our 40th wedding anniversary - apart from the scenery being spectacular the pilot Johno was fantastic and gave a great commentary of where we were and what we were seeing - and the company accommodated us at the last moment as the weather was changing at Milford Sound - we would have missed it had we had to wait - thanks Chris Dore for recommending them - the glacier landing was a once in a lifetime experience

    The staff were great at accommodating a solo traveller with others and Chris the pilot was fab at taking photos for us. Views and feeling of being on a glacier are incredible and definitely worth it

    A stunning bucket list experience! From the moment you take off you see close up views of mountains and deep valleys from 7000 feet that you would never otherwise see unless you were a mountaineer. Then you fly over to Milford Sound making a couple of stops and see the fjord, but the ultimate experience is landing on the glacier where you get stunning pictures and a sense of exhilaration. It's all weather related of course but, if all is well, they give you the green light about one hour before take off. Only at that point do they take payment. The staff are helpful and friendly and Will, our pilot, was calm and professional. Even if you think you have seen it all do not miss this adventure....its worth every penny!

    The weather gods were kind after failed attempts at a flight at Franz Joseph and Fox Glacier and we finally got to enjoy a mind blowing flight. We were very grateful for Ann’s coordination and persistence in getting us in the air on our second day of trying for this flight, especially working around a pre booked cruise. We were expecting a scenic flight over Milford Sound, but this was SO much MORE. The view of the spectacular ranges seemed endless, and a vastly different perspective than from ground level. After flying over Sutherland falls and Lake Quill (and other tarns) we dropped down to land on a ridge for more photo opportunities. We alighted from the helicopter and looked back at the falls and lake, across a massive void. There was ample opportunity to take photos of the falls and surrounding mountain tops, while marvelling at the skill level of our pilot Dion. Our second landing was on Tutoko glacier and again allowed time for stunning photo opportunities and a quick walk around the soft snow. There were 4 passengers on our flight and 3 of us were able to rotate through the front seat. The pilot excelled at banking and turning the helicopter to enable all passengers to get the best possible views. The commentary and information provided by the pilot was educational and interesting. This really was a once in a life time experience which far exceeded our expectations and has provided memories that will last a lifetime. You can’t put a price on that. Thank you everyone at Milford Sound Helicopters who made this possible. You have an awesome job. 😊
