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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I've booked the Milford Sound Scenic Flight for today. It was amazing from start to finish. I was even allowed to sit in the front next to our pilot Andrew, who was very nice and gave us a lot of information. The views were just breathtaking, beyond words. Thank you for this great experience, which I will never forget :) Absolutely worth it!

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.
