HANDS DOWN the best activity I have done in Queenstown. Our pilot Jim was a gem - very lovely and full of fun knowledge. I usually hate flying and I would do this again and again. Recommend doing it when there is snow on the mountains! I couldn't stop grinning the whole 1.5

Sounds like a pretty epic Birthday present. It's always so stunning with the snow caps. My favorite thing to point out as we approach the west coast is how the composition of the mountains changes from shist to granite, and the valley walls get steeper and steeper as they do. Every valley out there has its own story to tell about the formation of this beautiful country of ours. Thanks for flying with us again! Reuben.

Hi Greg! Thank you for choosing to fly with Glenorchy Air and for taking the time to write us a review. Being an independent family-run operation, we do our utmost to deliver the best service we can from start to finish, we strive to provide the most incredible experience for our customers. We agree that the flight really is breathtaking, but then we are somewhat biased, we absolutely love having the opportunity to share scenic flying and the Milford experience with our passengers. Getting feedback such as yours is exactly why we do what we do! Kind Regards The Glenorchy Air Team
