Great Day on Milford Sound

Great experience, was nice being apart of a small group. Trip was great, the buffet lunch was ok, tour guide/driver Chris was very personable and was very knowledgeable of the area. The day is long leaving from Queenstown, is to be expected and if you want to spend the money can upgrade to a flight home instead. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely awesome

This smaller group tour was the perfect way to experience Milford Sound. Our tour guide Andy was so friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining with a wonderful sense of humour. Andy made sure we were well fed and comfortable along the way. The drive from Queenstown to Milford was full of beautiful scenery with a couple of stops along the way for food, drinks and comfort stops as well as photo ops. We boarded a smaller, comfy boat for our tour through the Sound with heaps of room for everyone, great commentary and ample food and drinks. So glad we chose this tour.

Bucket list ticked off

simply stunning. Its a very loooong day. Mark was a great driver/tour guide with a lot of knowledge and great personality. The bus was only about an 18 seater, which I would recommend doing rather than a huge coach/bus - its more personal and intimate and very comfortable. The cruise was beautiful - helped by the great weather. However, don't except a feast for lunch on the boat - very average and not much to choose from. Overall a great day and something to tick off the bucket list.
