    This was such a great experience. Andy the pilot made us feel safe and pointed out interesting things along the way. The views from the plane were incredible.
    Once we got to Milford we casually made our way to the marina where were were handed over to the cruise operators.
    The cruise was a great way to see the sound. We chose to stay outside and enjoyed the full experience in the open air. There was plenty to see the whole time, including the iconic waterfalls, dolphins and the stunning mountains. The operators gave us great information during the whole trip.
    The flight back to Queenstown was just as good as the way over.
    I highly recommend this tour.
    Our group was a family group with kids in their 20’s.

    I booked the coach/cruise/flight option. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best and the flight was cancelled but it didn’t matter. We had the best day visiting Milford Sound.
    The scenery on the drive there was spectacular. Our guide Andy was great - very knowledgeable providing history of the lands and wildlife. He also stopped at all the best places so we could get some photos. The cruise was amazing also. 2 hours of stunning sights in a very comfortable boat. Our scenic flight was cancelled in the afternoon due to strong winds. It wasn’t an issue as we had a spot on the coach (which was a great ride) to get back to Queenstown.
    Definitely would recommend this tour to anyone who wants an easy, relaxing day visiting Milford Sound. This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to NZ.

    I really enjoyed the trip from Te Anau. We stopped along the way for photos and there was so much to learn about the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a glorious day.

    The entire trip was awesome!!! The coach ride was reasonably comfortable despite the long drive. The coach driver was absolutely AMAZING!!! He definitely made the experience for me. He takes pride in connecting with the passengers and being his authentic self.

    The recent flood had striped many of the glow worms from the walls, but the caving and boat ride was still great in the off season. The kids loved it as did we.

    Rob was very friendly and we have a cosy cruise around Milford Sound. The pricing is also competitive and this is for people for prefer a smaller crowd rather than a bigger crowd on a bigger boat.

    Beautiful scenery. Paul (the guide) was very knowledgeable on a broad range of topics (flora, fauna, geography, natural occurrences such as earthquakes and avalanches, adventure sports) and a safe driver. It was very comfortable and relaxing.

    We had a wonderful day out, starting with the cruise across Lake Manapouri, and the skipper’s repertoire of facts about the lake and power station. Followed by the coach trip from West Arm to Deep Cove, highlighted by the scenery and Beatles’ trivia as applicable to the project in the 1960s! Followed by the cruise along Doubtful Sound, with commentary. The scenery is wild, untouched, and magnificent. Enhanced by a number of temporary waterfalls resulting from the heavy rains the day before.
    We were able to approach the fur seal colony, and see a number of pups and adult seals. Regretfully no dolphins though.
    All in all we can thoroughly recommend this tour, it’s brilliant.

    Air Milford is an outstanding and well experienced operator which maintain all safety measures that exceeded our expectation from a family paint of view.
    Great experience to Milford Sound via the air and I would definitely try it again and would highly recommend it. Special thanks to Capt Antony Sproull who went above & beyond towards making this experience most informative and unforgettable
