What an amazing day from start to finish. Both the pilot and captain were informative and knowledgeable. It helped that we had one of the few near perfect days that Milford seldom has.

Awesome, breathtaking flight through the mountains to see glaciers and the view below. Then a peaceful cruise up the fiord you the open sea to experience a few swells. A sunny day, there were multiple waterfalls. Both pilot and captain gave running commentary full of interesting facts. If you can possibly afford this, do it!

If you never flew a small plane like this Cessna 208B, you have to know that flying in the mountains is an adrenaline experience as well. But it is definitely worths it! The mountains are magnificent, and Milford Sound is miraculous. The service is very well organized, the personal is friendly and supportive. Highly recommended experience!

What a great trip. Scary but great. Have never been on a small plane before (probably never again) and whilst i didnt feel great as suffering from a cold am so glad i did it.To be so close to such scenery was fantastic and so much better than a long bus ride. Cruise was great..actually saw a penguin.Would recommend. Weather is always an issue but we were blessed with a lovely sunny day
