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.

Stunning trip.

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.
