Owner description: Air Milford is a family owned and operated business based in Queenstown, New Zealand, specialising in personalised sightseeing excursions for visitors who want to experience the very best tours of Queenstown and the South Island of New Zealand. Air Milford purposefully remains a mid-size New Zealand tourism business. This allows the company to stay committed and focused on offering its guests exclusive, niche sightseeing tours of the Queenstown, Fiordland and South Island regions. Air Milford is a tour company - not a transport company. The Air Milford team have an intimate knowledge of the scenic wonders of Fiordland, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Mount Cook and the Queenstown region. The 'hands on' tours take in magnificent fiords, New Zealand native forests and glaciers. Guests will be introduced to New Zealand's stunning native birds, seals, penguins and dolphins. Our modern aircraft are meticulously maintained and we are proud to have achieved one of the Civil Aviation Authority's (CAA) highest audit ratings for operations and safety.

“Well worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

We had perfect weather! Our pilot Megan was great, we loved the flight. On ground was well organised, both at the Queenstown end and also with the tickets for the boat cruise on Milford. Fantastic, do it!

Dear Steve/Ali,
On behalf of Megan and the Air Milford Team, we wish to thank you both for this succinct review. We realise that for most flying into Milford Sound is a substantial decision, so to have you headline the trip “Well Worth It” speaks for itself. Thanks again for not only taking the time to share your experience, but choosing to fly with Air Milford.
Yours Sincerely,
Antony Sproull

We did a fly/cruise and found this a totally professional outfit from booking process to keeping you informed re weather to flying and ensuring smooth running of your day. Absolutely amazing scenery from new comfortable 14 seat aircraft, felt like we were in safe hands. Recommended.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your mobile review. We are gifted with scenery that never disappoints, but what is most pleasing is to have your feedback on the quality of our operation. And to cap things off it's great to hear you enjoyed flying in the new Cessna Caravan.

Thanks again for choosing to fly, and review Air Milford on Trip Advisor.
Faithfully,
Antony Sproull

For sure the best thing I did in my New Zeland trip. It was a amazing fly with a wonderful cruise included. The Milford is the best / must see attraction in NZ. Don't miss it!

“Unbeatable views with great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

We took a doubtful sound and cruise trip with fixed wings. Our pilot was very polite and very good at explaining everything during the flight. The view was simply incredible! You really get a sense of the magnitude of the mountains up in the air.

One minor complain is that the land operator that Milford Air connected us with in Doubtful sound was a bit disorganized. We joined a very large tour group which was a bit overwhelming.

Dear Billy and Nattavadee,
Thank you for taking your time and writing this review. Real Journeys are the only company operating cruises in Doubtful Sound. They get very busy especially between Christmas and New Year, which is high season. We will defenitely pass on them your feedback.
We hope that despite the size of the group travelling on the boat , you still enjoyed the trip.

Kindly,
Jana & Air Milford Team
