    Great view

    This is very nice experience. But you need to drive a long way to get to the Cruise first. The weather might be a big factor, too. Cheers Enjoy

    Milford Sound Scenic Cruise

    A magical place one of the best experiences of my life. The landscape is unbelievable and the most waterfalls I have ever seen. The cruise was great getting so close to a waterfall that you get wet was the best. A must see for everyone.

    Boring...

    Don't waste the 10 hour round trip... you can honestly see just as impressive views in Queenstown on the route 6!

    Fantastic!

    The trip was well planned with lots of information and interesting stops. As Kiwis it was nice to visit a part of New Zealand we had never been to before. We were blown away with the beauty in Milford Sound
