Fabulous Flight! Today's Doubtful Sound flight was unforgettable! Stunning views all the time, excellent commentary from pilot Rod, and absolutely amazing in general to see such a beautiful place from above. The flight (60 minutes), was scenic from the start, with two stops in between at places you'd never have seen if you'd gone on one of the walking tracks or on a boat cruise in the area. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Go do it if you can. - Kapestaartje, The Netherlands
