Best cruise at milford sound

Would recommend book the early morning cruise, buffet breakfast included and extra 20 mins cruise time, and most importantly less people. visit milford sound twice, one was with Jucy, and this time with Real journey, and from my experience, real journey has better value. will definitely choose real journey again!

Our booking through BookMe was quickly confirmed by the cruise company and we experienced no problems. The boat was new, the commentary informative and the journey as beautiful as we had been told
