Milford Sound Cruise

Excellent. The commentary on the glass roof couch is beautiful and very interesting. The cruise is also excellent and yes the waterfall at Milford sound is breathtaking. Suggestion: The times given for viewing different spots in the couch on the way to Milford Sound should be more and longer. Specially the areas of the snow-capped mountains.

Absolutely AWESOME

I can not recommend this experience enough. It was absolutely awesome. We were on the bus ‘AWESOME’ and Paul the driver was so entertaining giving us a lot of history and interesting detail about the native birds, environment, area and all given in a way that was definitely not not boring

Marvellous

It was an excellent trip. Thanks to Jucy. A big thanks to the coach driver who took care in giving a detailed commentary as we drove to Milford sound. Must say that his voice was that of an test cricket commentrator. Very soothing voice indeed. The trip took full 12 hrs door to door. But every moment was worth it. The meal was also good. All in all a 5 star experience.

Average tour

Get ready for a long day in a crowded bus and boat, “lunch” was terrible (suggest bringing your own food). Milford sound is a bit over hyped

Amazing

The journey was great. The coach driver Brendan was funny and informative but knew not to talk all the way. The views were absolutely amazing! We saw dolphins and seals and a penguin! So lucky. One of the best experiences of my life!
