Absolutely stunning experience! The scenery was indescribable; a must-see when traveling to Queenstown. The flights to and from the Milford Sound were so comfortable, and the plane was just superb. James was an excellent guide, and provided lots of commentary about the scenery along the way there and back. I can’t wait to do another flight with Glenorchy Air on one of their many flight experiences.

Amazing day, magical views and great way to see Milford Sound. Jim, our pilot was super friendly, knowledgeable about the scenery and the flying was very comfortable. We loved flying over the glaciers. Our kids loved it, highly recommend the whole experience.

Absolutely brilliant! From booking through to flight we couldn’t fault the team. Our pilot, James, was knowledgeable and great with our kids. Took the time to talk about everything we were flying past/over and taking in a different return route. The landing was so smooth we didn’t even notice the wheels touching the ground!

We flew return Queenstown to Milford Sound. I had been tossing up for weeks whether to spend the extra money and fly or do a day trip by bus or car. So, so happy we flew with Glenorchy Air! What an amazing experience. The scenery is absolutely spectacular. Our pilot Will was informative and lots of fun. Excellent service, pick up and return from the hotel, all tickets and transport to the cruise included and even the picnic lunch we ordered was great. A memorable experience, highly recommended.

This was the highlight of our week in Queenstown. We flew to Milford on a beautiful day through stunning scenery, with charming and informative commentary from our pilot. At Milford our cruise was on a comfortable boat and we were lucky to see the dolphins surfing along, directly below where we were standing at the bow. The skipper also nosed the boat right up to a waterfall where we could feel the glacial spray in our faces. Was our second flight to Milford, but first time for our kids aged 8, 12 and 14. We all loved it!

There just can’t be any more soul fulfilling and breath taking flights than the one from Queenstown to Milford Sound. Glenorchy Air were a class act from booking to execution: efficient, professional, safe and super friendly. The planes have optimal viewing windows and everything is thought of for the clients comfort and joy. Thanks, James, Jim and team. You guys are the best.

We had an awesome time doing the fly-cruise-fly with our kids to Milford Sound. The pilots, staff, and service were great and they did everything possible to make it a great experience for us. The flight was absolutely epic, and a must do if you're in Queenstown...highly recommended over driving, and probably the most beautiful flying I've ever done. Beautiful day for a cruise, we saw waterfalls, dolphins, and seals. Can't say enough good things about the trip with Glenorchy Air.
