great experience

day trip to milford sound, it will takes a whole day and you won't be able to do other activity, unless dinner. The bus is good, our driver give lots of information about New Zealand and what bouts. Lunch is good, a bit crowded but the option is plenty and we don't running out of it. Whole trip feels a bit rushed, especially in several photo stop. Also the cruise trip is short, for the amount of time you spend on the road for this, you'll hope you will stay longer at milford sound, to enjoy the view and such. But the weather is good and we can see sea lions. The waterfall experience is priceless! Luckily we got the discounted price so it worth.

Must do

Loved every second of it. There is enough time to take photos. We were unfortunate as we went on a sunny day, hence waterfalls weren’t running as strong. But it was still amazing and breathtaking. We saw dolphins and a pair of seal cubs which were very cute. Lunch is packed sandwiches, fruit, cookie and sweets. We were full from grabbing lunch during one of the pit stops on the coach. Me and my partner really enjoyed our coach driver as well.

Totally worth it!

Recommended to us by a friend and was totally worth it. Our bus driver, Ben, was very entertaining as we rode through Te Anau, making stops along the way and making it to Milford Sound at lunch. We brought umbrellas with us due to the rain but there should’ve been available umbrellas just in case because others couldn’t even get out of the rain. The cruise ride was surreal! I’m speechless. Ride going there and back were fantastic. There was a guide who give useful information and overall, crew was very accommodating. One of the best experiences of our lives.

Wonderful but Misleading

The booking on book me was misleading as it said I was booking with the international buffet lunch however when the confirmation email arrived it had changed to a picnic lunch and then to find out that there is only tea and coffee included and no cold drinks The coach driver was fantastic there and back and the cruise was great too however don’t bother buying the soup it was terrible. The crew on the boat were also great. The tour itself and the magestic countryside and waterways was absolutely magnificent and I would recommend it to everyone

Nature is an awesome architect

Milford Sound is such a beautiful place, with awe-inspiring, other worldly scenery. I could just imagine dinosaurs or dragons suddenly appearing out of the mist.
