    Unbelievable, magical experience. Flight to and from Mllford sound was breath taking. Flying is the best it led to experience this glacial wilderness. Lakes formed between rises and waterfalls, untouched and unreachable. Tommo our pilot from Milford Air was very friendly and went around showing various attractions with excellent commentary. Weather was really good and I was extremely lucky for that. Flying gives best bang for buck and you don't have to spend 12 hours on the road and get the best seat in town by flying, unless you are that type :). Milford Sound itself is a natural wonder and see to believe. No wonder this was the set for many movies including Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, X- men wolverine, Jurassic World, Alien Covenant Etc; Highly recommended and a must do if you visit Queenstown.

    The bbq lunch was great, even better than pre-covid when I last visited. Just wish there was more time for my little one to visit the farm and interact with the animals. Perfect trip!

    We had family come twice and did it both times. We enjoyed this experience both times! The views and flight were amazing! Breathtaking! Our pilot, Will, was knowledgeable and funny! What a great way to see the sound without having to drive. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely incredible. From the coach ride up with an amazing driver (Brad) who made the 4+ Hour drive enjoyable & informative, to an amazing cruise, topped off with a scenic helicopter back home and landing on a glacier? Words can’t describe how amazing the day was. This is a MUST DO!

    We did the 2 night cruise on 16 and 17 March and I highly recommend this over the one day trip. It was a fantastic trip, and we had time to explore every arm of the fjord. There was plenty of time to kayak and swim, without having to rush as I think would have been the case with a 1 night trip. Professional yet still friendly crew that all worked really well together as a team. The food was also fantastic, so thanks to the chef. This is not a luxury cruise but everything on the boat was sparkling clean and very well maintained. My only disappointment was the window in the cabin was tiny and so high up you couldn't see out it, so the cabin was very dark. The cabins with the larger windows are the same price and are the ones shown on the website, so this is what I was expecting. However we spent very little time in the cabin so it wasn't a deal breaker, just a bit misleading.

    Mere words and even pictures could never describe just how amazing Milford Sound is. The boat Captain was awesome and thoroughly showed the full extent of the Sound. The bus driver was also full of great information and the drive out to Milford Sound was equally amazing the whole drive

    The Earnslaw trip highly recommended and the BBQ at Walter Peak Station a must do well worth every $$$. So many choices of Meats, Vegetables Salads Breads and Desserts. The Sticky Date is absolutely worth having.
    I am going back to Queenstown in August and definitely going to do this trip again.

    I love this trip! This was my third time and I would go again. The TSS Earnslaw is a beautiful vintage steamboat with an excellent cafe and bar. Visit the engine room and see them shoveling the coal. Walter Peak farm is in an idyllic situation, a magical place where time seems to stand still. The animal feeding is great fun (especially Dougal) and the sheepdog demonstration is very impressive. The dogs can be patted and stroked, and love the attention. The afternoon tea was very upmarket with beautiful little cakes, savoury and sweet scones and mini sandwiches. You can eat as much as you like! The staff at the farm are outstanding. Our guide Peter was so knowledgeable and interesting and clearly loves his job and his super intelligent dogs.

    Our driver Pete was a legend. Great day and exceptional service. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a relaxed way to visit some of the best wineries and pubs in the region. Pete went above and beyond to make sure our trip was memorable.

    This is hands down the best thing to do when visiting Queenstown! the flight is jaw-droppingly beautiful and the sound itself is stunning. The staff and crew at Air Milford were super friendly and professional. The flight allows you to get a unique perspective as to exactly how remote and relatively inaccessible the area is and of cause showcases the beauty of those mountains and Fjiordland national park.
