Awesome day visiting Milford Sound. The flight is stunning and absolutely worth the extra cost. And the walk isn't hard and nice to walk thru the forest. I cannot recommend this strongly enough. Note they cancel the flights due to weather often so be prepared to reschedule, or you can take the bus.
