An incredible scenic flight over Queenstown and the mountains, followed by a fantastic 2 hour boat cruise through Milford Sound. We were afforded good weather and saw penguins, seals and dolphins during our cruise. There was a shortage of seating outside on the boat, with plenty of seats inside. This was not an issue as most people were standing around and moving in and out. The scenic flight was incredible, and our pilot Stu was a legend. We went on two different flight paths just to see some different scenery.

Our group of four adults loved it. We are regular visitors to Queenstown and are glad we decided to book this tour and finally get to Milford Sound. We were really impressed by both : A) the team’s commitment to safety B) the team’s commitment to ensuring we had a great experience. The flight to Milford was perfect. The transfer to the wharf was seamless and the tour on a smaller side send vessel was intimate and engaging. I highly recommend this tour to any group.

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.
