What people are saying about Mitre Peak

From start to finish this trip was awesome. The plane was a special experience flying just above the mountains in a 12 seater plane with fantastic views on all sides. Milford sound boat was equally impressive with beautiful waterfalls and great commentary along the way and great sights to see. Price was also affordable. Would definitely recommend this trip.

The flight was brilliant, well worth it and far better than the bus or car. The views were amazing!! Great pilot and very informative. Cruise was brilliant as well - cannot fault a thing. We are going to do the Milford Sound - flights and Cruise - again with True South Flights when there is snow and some more waterfalls. Recommend to anyone.

We had the best time Flight with Elliot, who took special care and attention pre flight and gave us great insight into the area during our journey to and from Milford sound. The cruise on the sound was also fantastic, just enough to capture all the great features and falls available. All round well worth recommending

Extremely knowledgable and informative guide. Pick up and drop off at motel door. Absolutely unbelievable scenery and the long drive was made more enjoyable by having stops for photos and informative talks. Well worth the time and effort.

Amazing! Kiert was an absolutely amazing guide and we had so much fun! Thanks!!
