Sam our hotel pick up driver arrived at our hotel on time and was polite and engaged throughout our driver. I also believe Sam was also the employee I spoke to the previous day as our original booking was cancelled due to weather. Sam managed to ensure all three of us were able to experience Milford Sound together the very next day Dean our flight pilot was fantastic! He acted as a tour guide and pilot all in one giving us information as we flew above. Dean always had a smile on his face and tried to keep the flight seating fair
2nd go at this flight. Bad weather last year meant we missed out. Pays to have a spare day if you can. This flight was amazing although Milford had a bit of low cloud obscuring the view. I’d recommend the fly in boat trip if you really want to see Milford. This flight focussed more on the out of reach small mountain glaciers up towards Mt Aspiring. Beautiful remote otherwise impossible to see parts of the Southern Alps of Aotearoa.
Worth every cent, we had a group of 8 so split across 2 helicopters. The pilots met up on the mountain so we could take a group photo. The experience was one I will remember for a long time!
It was a great thing to do, our pilot Charlotte was very informative about what we were looking at from the air, landing and taking photos in the snow was a highlight, loved it
Fantastic crew from the ground to the air !! Reply looked after us and made us feel welcome and safe.
