It looks like you had a gorgeous sunny day in Milford! Thank you for leaving us a good review and we're really glad you enjoyed the day with us :)

Awesome!

It was definitely one of the most amazing part of our entire New Zealand tour. The view was just magical. Not something you should miss when coming to Queenstown or the South Island. We also had a wonderful tour guide. Chris was very knowledgeable about the entire journey and has a great sense of humor too. It was a good choice to opt for a small group tour so it was not too crowded. Our BBQ lunch on board the cruise ship was very sumptuous and filling. The staff were very accommodating. They even offered desserts individually to each table just so we would not miss it. All in all it was an awesome tour package. 👍

Beautiful journey back to nature

We generally had a great experience. Podge, our driver was very knowledgeable about the history and nature of the region and we were picked up from near our accomodation. Although the weathee was not as great as we wanted it to be, we were still able to see Keas, seals and alpacas at the Alpine Centre at Te Anau. We would recommend hopping on the van in town because if you get picked up later on, you might have to sit at the very back seat which is very cramped. Would also advise not getting the optional lunch, not worth it and you can pack or get some snacks at the stop at Te Anau. It is a very long day so be prepared!

Hi Min-Ji, Thank you for leaving an honest and thorough review. We are glad you got to enjoy some of the wildlife Milford has to offer, and are sorry to hear your experience in the back seats of the van, and of the picnic lunch were less than ideal. We have taken your notes on board and are always aiming to better our product.
