Spectacular views of the mountains, which to me looked like chocolate cake topped with meringue. The pilots were friendly and the plane was comfortable

Many thanks for your review. I think your description of the Mountains as Chocolate Cake topped in Meringue is probably the most unique way I have heard one of our passengers describe it! Thanks again for your review!

We did the Fly-Cruise-Fly option but would also recommend Fly-Cruise-Coach option. You are very safe in the hands of an experienced pilot with great personality! We will be coming back as Milford Sound is nothing short of addicting!
