Excellent from start to finish.

Far exceeded my expectations, the helicopter pilot's experience made for a thrilling and informative trip.

Milford Sound was beautiful, we were lucky enought to see some dolphins too.
I would highly recommend this trip.

We did the Milford Sound Helicopter and cruise and it was one of the best experiences of our lives! From pick up at our hotel to drop off back in town everything was spot on! The team were super friendly and helpful when we needed to change our booking and on the day. Our pilot was Luke and he was brilliant! The flight itself was just unbelievable, we were initially lost for words! Luke was very knowledgable and gave us lots of commentary on the area. Landing on top of a mountain in the snow was definitely an experience to remember. The whole flight was very smooth. There is a fair cost involved but it is worth every cent. Can't recommend it highly enough and I would absolutely do it again! Many thanks to Luke and the team!

Trip of a lifetime and this excursion was the best part. They were so accommodating to my family. We landed on a mountain top and had a gender reveal that the pilot so graciously videoed. I would recommend taking the helicopter because the scenery is indescribable.

Very nice tour! We loved the helicopter flight-- it affords some amazing views along the way. The cruise was great, but be prepared for the weather if you want to enjoy the top deck. Our day was very windy but mild so a windbreaker and hat come in handy. Worth it though-- we saw penguins and seals along the shore.
