Excellent service and experience!

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.
A super trip over Mount Aspiring

We flew with Jim our pilot on Good Friday around Mount Aspiring to view the Glaciers. It was a perfect day, weatherwise and Jim was a perfect pilot, giving a good, knowledgeable and interesting commentary, whilst also flying the Cessna 206 very professionally. All the organisation beforehand and afterwards, including the pickup and drop off worked flawlessly - especially because ours was a relatively short notice booking. We'd certainly recommend this as a very special activity on a blue sky day.
Highly recommended, great pilot, great airline, amazing day trip

We had amazing day flight from Queenstown to Stewart Island which included a boat ride over to Ulva island once we were there. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the trip and highly recommend Glenorchy Air. We were picked up at our hotel by Jim who was punctual, friendly and really knowledgeable about our trip and he had some great recommendations for us fir once we were there. Our pilot was Will and he was outstanding, looked after us in the air pointing out all the sights as we flew and also looking after us on the ground. Highly recommend!!
