    Sinchan was a great host! Very knowledgable and accomodating.
    Tour was well organised and not rushed.

    Shown experiences and events that would not have been possible without local knowledge.

    Highly recommend their services and would definitely use them again in the future.

    The aerial views of the snow capped mountains from the plane was spectacular. The views of the fjord from the boat were simply awesome. A most wonderful excursion. Highly recommended. We are very glad that we chose the round-trip flight approach.

    I thought that the long bus trips would be boring and tiring, but I was very wrong. The views on the entire journey are consistently mesmerising. Our tour guide Paulie Potatoes was excellent - extremely passionate, knowledgeable, and energetic. He clearly loves his job and we enjoyed our trip because of him. We learnt plenty on the way about natural flora and fauna, with fascinating cultural history. An overall great trip that I’d do many times again.

    One of the best cruises I have done. Fantastic service and the cruise itself is stunning. I would highly recommend doing a Milford cruise in winter.
    It was raining which meant a lot of waterfalls and the fiord looked stunning .
    Excellent commentary and a smaller boat size made it personable.
    Tea, coffee and biscuits available.
    Would highly recommend this cruise.
    Excellent value for money

    What a day, we were recommended this tour by Sue who was so helpful and even remembered us on our return. Having done Waitomo caves in the past we were unsure what to expect but were blown away! The boat trip across the lake was stunning and the caves and tour guides were exceptional! Awesome family day out, great value for money, if you are considering this just do it!

    What an excellent tour guide Ray is he has so much knowledge and is very funny, he was so good with my 3 yr granddaughter. It was a fantastic day so glad we did this tour. We even got to stop at places he even took us on a walk to a beautiful waterfall he took a fantastic video for us he really knows what he is doing. On the cruise we got to see dolphins which made my day.... Thanks again so much Ray... Will be telling everyone I know about this.

    All round brilliant and breathtaking. Our tour guide was a Maori driver with tons of knowledge who brought something very special to the whole tour to Milford.
    Thanks for the wonderful trip with mum!

    This trip is literally a once in a lifetime outstanding thing to do.
    Whether it is a bucket list or a "hell no not for me" item you will surely overcome those nerves, enjoy it and talk about it for years to come and cherish the memory.

    As it was a surprise on the day, I stepped into the helicopter with a good dose of nerves and I was that "hell not for me" person!

    But, for my fellow nervous people, trust me when I say you are in very good hands on this trip. Our pilot Matt used to fly swinging "buckets of water" as an Aussie fire fighter so flying the outstandingly beautiful mountains and glaciers above Queenstown and Milford Sound is a breeze for him!

    He kept up an informative narrative about the area which also kept me at my ease as well as imparting knowledgeable interesting information about the area.

    But this is no ordinary fly straight there and back trip!

    Matt took us inside the "bowl" of the mountains gently and slowly flying around so we could get the best possible close up views, a truly unique and special flight that also included an alpine landing.
    Standing on top of a mountain with thick snow underfoot is a priceless incomparable feeling.

    Matt flew us to Milford Sound where we embarked on a boat which served both fantastic views alongside great fish and chips on board!

    Without hesitation I would highly recommend Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters as a very professional company who provides the best adventure in the air.

    Thank you guys for a day that will never be forgotten in its excitement, sheer incredible wonder of the views and the very very happiest of memories.

    Katie . Auckland.
