Sensational experience of a lifetime. Highly recommended. The scenic flight to Milford Sounds was exceptional & a must see. The cruise on the sounds was such a special time with a very informative commentary. The sounds is certainly the 8th wonder of the world & every kiwi needs to visit this sacred part of our beautiful country. The flight back to Queenstown was yet another priceless experience. Can’t say enough about this experience. The extra cost for the scenic flight was worth every cent & I will be raving about our trip to the Milford sounds for many years to come. We went well prepared. Scout moto, “Be Prepared”. Take: Warm clothes. Raincoat/windbreaker, Towel & insect repellent. Also Take your lunch as there is limited food outlets at the sounds. A beanie is better then a cap, depending on the wind & a light backpack is better then a bag. Full phone/camera battery with plenty of space for pics & vids. (I needed a bit of extra charge. Too many vids. No internet reception.

Sam our hotel pick up driver arrived at our hotel on time and was polite and engaged throughout our driver. I also believe Sam was also the employee I spoke to the previous day as our original booking was cancelled due to weather. Sam managed to ensure all three of us were able to experience Milford Sound together the very next day Dean our flight pilot was fantastic! He acted as a tour guide and pilot all in one giving us information as we flew above. Dean always had a smile on his face and tried to keep the flight seating fair

Great experience - highly recommend. We had bad weather on original booked day but given the option to reschedule or refund without any issue. We were able to go couple of days later and it was great to see the snow on the mountains. On the Milford cruise got to see Dolphins and Seals. All around a seamless experience from check in at Queenstown, transfer from plane to cruise on mini bus and back again.
