We’re a Tripadvisor Traveler’s Choice Award Winner for 2021!

We’re exceptionally proud to be awarded the Traveler’s Choice Award from Tripadvisor, showing we’re in the top 10% attractions worldwide! Alongside this award, we’re also proud to announce that we are the #1 Rated Outdoor Activity in Queenstown on Tripadvisor.

This award celebrates attractions that consistently deliver fantastic experiences to travelers, having earned great traveler reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months. In this particularly challenging year, we’ve shown our great kiwi and Australian passengers the beauty of Aotearoa New Zealand and we can’t thank them enough for supporting our family-owned business. We also want to thank our wonderful and dedicated team here at Glenorchy Air.

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety. The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent – delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience you provided guests in the midst of a pandemic.

Below are a few of our glowing reviews from this past year:

Glenorchy Air and Milford Sound Cruise | One of the best tours I have done from start to finish. Glenorchy Air were excellent in everyway, from booking the flight to on the day itself. James and his team were incredibly professional, the aircraft was near new and the flight itself simply amazing, taking you to breathtaking views in every direction. The cruise was just as amazing, scenery, dolphins, waterfalls you name we saw it. Highly recommend. 

Stunning | This is the second time I have taken a Sunrise Flight with Glenorchy Air - both times were incredible and the service was faultless. Must do experience if you are visiting Queenstown - you won't see anything else like it. The staff are friendly and helpful and Jim, our pilot, was a delight - as well as very knowledgeable of the surrounding landscapes.

Queenstown to Stewart Island day trip | New plane, friendly professional experienced pilot (thanks again Jim!)
 Awesome views, bucket list experience, and that was just the flights!
 Stewart Island itself, wow. Isolated paradise. We’ll be back with the kids for a longer stay.
Loved it.

Best Day Ever #2! | Another incredible experience with Glenorchy Air! This time we did the Fly-Cruise-Fly to Milford Sound from Queenstown. What a glorious day we had, we even had a pod of dolphins visit us on the cruise! Can not fault the whole experience from the professional and friendly staff and pilots to the amazing atmosphere surrounding the adventure! Can't wait to return for a third time!
