What an absolute awesome experience!!! From the time you get picked up to when you step off the plane back in Queenstown the service and interaction with the staff were professional. The commentary during the flight was informative as well as during the short walk to the boat departure at Milford Sound. The pilots knowledge was much appreciated and a bonus! Can highly recommend True South Flight, you will not be disappointed! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This flight was more than we expected. We were upgraded on the flight to include a cruise in Milford. Very much appreciated and thankful for the opportunity but the flight was the the highlight. Spectacular scenery.

A must do in Queenstown

Thank you Lauren for an amazing journey, we were blown away. The trip by car over to Milford is an awesome day trip but this was spectacular, epic, and something that we will always treasure. I made an error with booking the wrong day but True South had no hesitations in getting us on the day I meant to book. Well worth the dollars, even if you were to pay full price.

Amazing time!!

I had the privilege of flying ‘co-pilot’ with Jason to Milford Sound last week. I was most impressed by his knowledge and experience of the region. He was incredibly friendly and really made the whole experience so enjoyable. If you have a spare afternoon, or would rather avoid the four-hour coach journey from Milford Sound to Queenstown, I would strongly recommend hitting up True South Flights. Thank you Jason for making that afternoon one that I won’t forget!
