  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    A very great tour. Rhys was our guide for the day. It was an early start but well worth it. There were several stops along the way for scenic shots and local information. The tour company handled everything including lunch so we had no worries! The boat tour of Milford sound was scenic and enjoyable. It was a long day but it’s probably highly recommend that this tour be done with a guided company instead of on your own.

    Wow! What a wonderful experience! Our flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound is undoubtedly the most spectacular flight we have ever taken. The mountain scenery was amazing and the clouds playing with the peaks looked almost unreal. The plane was a Cessna Caravan which was big enough for the job but still gave great views out the windows. Our pilot Tom was very professional. The cruise up the Sound was great and the boat was able to approach towering cliffs and waterfalls very closely. A truly beautiful place. I highly recommend this tour!

    We were picked up on time from our pick-up spot. Dani, the tour guide with Cheeky Kiwi tours, arrived in an immaculately clean Mercedes Sprinter van. The seats were comfortable, and the temperature in the van was just right for the conditions. Dani was an engaging tour guide. She included interesting facts and historical information with a sense of humour and made sure that all guests were included throughout the trip. There were ample stops for photos with enough time at each place to take a look and stretch before continuing. Our fellow travellers were all considerate and polite. The cruise was pleasant. We had a mostly sunny day, and the scenery could never be spoilt by weather. Dani ensured our handover to the pilot was smooth. We were transferred by bus to the airstrip and enjoyed a flight back to Queenstown on a Kodiak 10 seat plane. It was a little bumpy due to the conditions. However, the pilot kept us informed of everything flight related as we went. She pointed out many land marks, taking us close to the falls as we left Milford. A thoroughly enjoyable day. We were back to town by 3:30. I would highly recommend this tour.

    When the flight is cancelled and have to spend extra 2 hours getting home in a bus, you will only get refunded $350 for 2 person, making the coach and cruise to be about $350 per person. Contacted them several times, they said that they told Expedia to refund, but nonetheless I still did not get refund for the flight portion. I will never ever use them again and will caution fellow travelers of using them. I understand flight is weather dependent. But refund the money when flight can’t take off.

    This is a very well run operation that cares about your ability to view the fabulous sights and above all about your safety. We had to reschedule our booking due to bad weather and they worked to get us onto a flight the next day. The equipment is excellent and the pilot pointed out all the sights and maneuvered the plane so that everyone was able to get photos and a great view. Definitely the way to view this fantastic terrain.

    We booked air transport to and from Milford Sound because we were scheduled for an overnight cruise. Unfortunately, we had completely underestimated the potential weather impact. Luckily, the entire crew at Air Milford worked to arrange alternative flight arrangements to ensure we made our overnight cruise as well as our flight home. The pilot, Antony, even arranged to have the cruise ship's bus driver drop us off at a different airfield when weather prevented him from landing in Milford Sound for our return flight. We travel often, and our experience with Air Milford far exceeded our expectations.

    Made for a nice day, as it was quick to get to Milford Sound from Queenstown rather than a long drive. Scenery from the plane was breathtaking.

    This was an experience of a lifetime for myself and my family. The airline and boat cruise operators were professional, highly competent and extremely personable. Special shoutout to Mike our pilot who flew the plane flawlessly and described such beautiful parts we witnessed on the way to Milford Sound. I cannot recommend this enough. Don’t hesitate just sign up!

    Fantastic experience in a 10 seater plane piloted by Hugh Sproull. He provided excellent commentary after providing a thorough safety overview. Flight from Milford Sound to Queenstown only took a short 35 minutes. We had wonderful weather which allowed us to view the sound and surrounding mountains with clarity. Personnel at the airport terminal were professional and helpful. Highly recommend this reputable company for an air transfer from Milford sound to Queenstown.

    Our pilot Jason and the crew were amazing! This was worth every dollar and exceeded my already high expectations. A “must do” if you are visiting this part of the world. The flying experience added so much to the overall trip. Jason shared a lot of interesting information on the flight over and back. Pick up and drop off in town were super easy. Thanks True South!!
