    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

    Good transportation. Excellent flight. We had a nice clear day, no turbulence. There was a short bus ride from the little landing strip at Milford Sound to the boat. We're 65 and 66 and we're not complaining about having to stand but some people may not have liked that.The box lunch was big but not exceptional, sandwich, apple, chips, beverage, sweet. The falls were really running as it had been raining for several weeks. Since we have seen the Rockies and the Alps, I'd rate the southern alps of mainland NZ as better than okay but not a must see. Best part was seeing all the people on the lower deck crowd in the get waterfall, the captain pulled in very, very close, People got soaked.

    This was an excellent trip - especially the morning flight over the glaciers and Milford Sound was exciting and definitely worth the money.
    Being a small ship we were able to get really near the rocks with seals and the waterfalls even under one!

    Amazing trip thru the Mountains! Very kind and helpful pilot.

    It was a beautiful day for flying and to see the majestic mountains, snow capped and both jagged and verdant was remarkable. You feel like the pilot is a bird guiding you through the peaks before the reveal of Milford Sound. The boat cruise was lovely, thank goodness for the warm tea as it was cold. The captain pointed out some things and game minimum historical references, would have been nice to learn a bit more. The flight back was as spectacular and was grateful to have been able to see the birds eye view, and the seal level view.
