The driver picked us up from accommodation. We drove 2,5 hours to Milford Sound with a very informative commentary and a lot of stops along the way, to take stunning pictures and to get closer to the nature! The cruise ship was from real journey with a nice lunch buffet with many options.(yes it's very Asian oriented, but still delicious!) On both ways we made a stop to use bathroom facilities. girls no worries ;) The best thing about leaving Te Anau early is that all the tourist buses are not in Milford sound yet. It's still quiet with a nice VIP feeling. Thanks for this day!

We were so glad that we had booked with VIP Milford!!! Mark, our guide and driver, was absolutely fantastic. There was a delay on the road because of snow conditions. Guess what? Mark took us to some "bonus" areas with wonderful scenaries before resuming to our drive to Milford Sound. The cruise was excellent. The buffet lunch was nice (and well coordinated). We would recommend VIP Milford again. Many thanks for our wonderful memories of New Zealand (particularly Milford Sound). Minh, Belinda, Alexander and Isaac.

This experience was amazing. Really comfi couch for just 10 people. Steven, driver guy was really really nice and he was giving us a lot of information about everything. Every stop on the Road was perfect. The food was good, just a little bit spicy for me but ice cream fixed it. I recommend this experience.

Our trip with VIP Milford Sound during mid January was absolutely sublime. Our coach driver was friendly and informative and the places he stopped at, both to and from Milford Sound, were stunning! The cruise was brilliant and the food superb. I’d highly recommend this company for your adventure.

The whole family had an awesome day. The vip tour is the best way to get the most out of your trip. Our Driver Rhys was so knowledgeable and knew the best spots, as well as good timing of the whole trip. If you drove yourself you would miss all of that. Such an awesome day and everything was with ease. We were extremely lucky too.! The weather turned it on for us- raining at the best times and holding off at the right times. The rain brought out all the cascading waterfalls. We even got to get close to some seals and dolphins on the cruise (perks of being on a small cruise), and if you’re game you take a dip under a waterfall on the cruise too. A must do and we all wish we could go back some day soon with VIP Milford

We were picked up from our accomodation by Justin our tour guide in a luxury comfortable van. Justin gave great commentary along the way, he was a real book of knowledge when we asked various things. Awesome to have a guide that really knows his stuff. We were blown away when Justin told us how many trips he had done into Milford. We can clearly see he is very passionate about his job as for the amount trips he has already done, his commentary was full of life and enjoyable. We had a few stops along the way, taking in sites that we probably wouldn't of done if we had gone in ourselves. Justin showed us some real hidden treasures that the kids enjoyed exploring. Milford Sound was wet but this created an even more beautiful experience. The endless waterfalls were admirable and we felt privledged to be able to witness so much beauty. The boat cruise was fabulous the experience of getting wet under a waterfall and hearing the laughter and smiles from my family and fellow passageners is unforgettable. The buffet lunch was amazing, a real treat to have so many yummy options to choose from and enjoy while cruising the water. We had a best experience, we highly recommend VIP Milford. Our daughter suffers terribly from travel sickness, so we were concerned about traveling in and out of Milford and were well prepared in case. I had told Justin about this upon being picked up and he made sure we were in the front so she could have a clear view of the road. Well we made it there and back with zero sickness first time ever! I put this down to Justins driving, we felt very safe on what can be such a dangerous road. Big thanks to Justin and the team at VIP Milford, a truly unforgettable experience indeed.

I am really grateful that the tour was set up even there was only 2 guests on the van. That was a beautiful sunny day when we were in Milford Sound, so lucky. The sceneries with waterfalls, mountains, creeks, and the snow left me a deep impression, so as the excellent introduction and guidance given by our tour guide Justine. The cruise started early enough so there was not crowded at all in the ship. Strongly recommended. Thank you!

Mark at VIP was an amazing driver and tour guide. Mark took us to a lot of different stops on the way there and back that we would never have done if we had driven ourselves. Mark had an extensive knowledge about Te Anau and Milford Sound and was always approachable. The cruise was amazing and we loved seeing a beautiful part of New Zealand we had not explored before.

I took up VIP Milford shuttle from Te Anau to Milford Sound Cruise by Real Journey. VIP Milford driver Mark was really informative and shared a lot of information along the shuttle journey despite it was a foggy morning and we could not see anything. The only thing I would like to comment is on the Real Journey Cruise where we could not hear the English guide talking when we were having our lunch in the cruise, the voice was too soft and unclear.

Awesome transport! Leather seats and very comfortable. we had such a small group too. Our driver was really nice and you could tell that he is passionate. We had plenty of stops and no rush really. The boat was small so it did feel that you are too close to the waterfalls - which was awesome! The commentator on the boat was great as well. It was an awesome experience!

Once on the Real Journeys cruise the Milford Sounds scenic cruise was everything we could have dreamed of. Even with rain and wind was such a breathtaking trip. Loved every moment. Would go back again and again. A must do for visitors and locals like. A+++++ ❤️

We really enjoyed all the short stops along the way to milford sounds And A couple stops on the way back. Milford sounds was amazing! Unforgettable experience. Lovely buffet. Yummy ribs, chops, chicken and Asian food, even ice cream. Your in for a long day, abit tiring on the way back but worth it in the end. Just have a early night the night before! We personally wouldn't pay full price but the special was worth it which was $99pp. Thanks Justin for your touring us you made it enjoyable ?

So happy we booked a tour with a smaller luxury coach and to depart from Te Anau than Queenstown. Our guide Liv was so friendly and knowledgeable, we loved all the short walks/photo stops, Milford Sound itself was incredible! Absolutely amazing. Photos really don't do it justice.. The buffet on the boat is delicious and more than enough food. We had such a great day, couldn't recommended VIP Milford enough. Would 100% do it again.

The coach picked us up on time, the driver was very informative, entertaining and friendly. The coach was very comfortable and always on schedule. The cruise was clean, friendly staff, food was tasty with a wide choice. The views were spectacular and heavenly. Overall the entire coach-cruise by VIP Milford was one of the best journeys we have taken so far. I totally recommend it to anyone. For that price, it is totally worth your money.

We all really enjoyed the Milford Sound experience. Our driver that picked us up for VIP was very nice and made commentary on the way there and back. Kate was our guide on the nature cruise and was very informative. I am glad we chose nature over scenic cruise. The picnic lunches were pretty good too. I would definitely do this again!
