The Milford Sound Fly and Cruise was one of the top 5 adventures we’ve ever had. The weather was inclement on our scheduled day but the team rescheduled for the following day with no problem. Exciting, jaw dropping! Staff and equipment excellent!

Air only, But Worth It!

Despite changing weather conditions and flooding, the Glenorchy team worked with me to make the best of a situation beyond their control. My Fly-Cruise-Fly turned into just a fly, but it was very enjoyable and Glenorchy team gave me a partial refund for the portion of the tour that they could not complete.

We are very happy with our Milford Sound tour! Everyone was so pleasant, even when we accidentally got into the wrong company's pick-up van at 7am from our hotel -- the company just sent another van to pick us up! The flights there and back were very smooth, the length of time of the cruise was just right, and we were able to purchase the buffet breakfast on the boat (I'd recommend bringing your own snacks, too, though). And this tour didn't feel too crowded or commercial. Highly recommend!

One of the best experiences of life

I was a bit apprehensive initially whether to go for this trip or not but this turned out to be the best part of our New Zealand trip. A must do for everyone. The views are amazing from the top as you are flying in the mountains with snow covered peaks on your side and clear water lakes below. Must do for everyone.

This was a wonderful experience. I cannot believe that mostly overseas visitors book this trip. It is so good.

How could anyone rate this less then 5 Stars plus. From the pick up at our hotel to the wonderful and personal plane trip into the sound over 3 mountain ranges and then the personal service picking up our passes for the ferry from our pilot was all wonderful. You could not wipe the smile off my husbands face. We loved every minute of the experience.
