Excellent value for money. The boat trip which lasted a whopping 5 hrs a little longer than expected made you realise just how huge the Sound is. in all that time we only got to see a small part of it. Chance to see places that otherwise you would never see. Folk who live in places where the only means of transport is via boat. Saw Dolphins and seals. Definitely worth going if you have an afternoon to spare.

This was a long, all day tour, but well worth it. The day started out very cold and rainy, but it didn't detract from the beauty of the scenery. Shelly was a wonderful driver and tour guide, and our trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound was filled with great information and beautiful views. There were several stops for photos, as well as for food and souvenir shopping. Once we arrived at Milford Sound for the boat ride, the skies cleared and we had beautiful weather. It was absolutely breathtaking and definitely worth the time. On the bus ride back we watched a good movie based on a real guy from New Zealand. Since it was summer and got dark late, we were able to see more beautiful scenery on the return trip and watch the sun set. Don't miss this!
Doing what: Milford Sound Cruise and Optional Coach Tour
Nice tour starting from near the top of the gondola. They teach you how to do some fun moves like ziplining upside down. You get some amazing views of the lake on a couple of the ziplines. The only downside is that you basically waste half of your round-trip gondola ticket, since the ziplines take you all the way down the mountain. It would be nice if there was some sort of package including a one-way ticket up the gondola.

É um passeio incrível que vale muito a pena fazer! O tour foi bem organizado, o ônibus era confortável e tem uma rápida parada em Te Anau e a estrada até lá é bonita também.
O buffet do barco deveria estar incluso no meu pacote mas quando cheguei lá não estava, falei com eles e liberaram. A comida é mais típica chinesa. A equipe era bem simpática.

Great food, nice evening.
Food was excellent and cruising across the lake in style aboard a real steamship :-
The Shotover Jet was absolutely exciting and kept us engaged through the entire 30 minute session. The driver was highly experienced, with fast spins and brilliant maneuvers. The kids loved it and we would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a great enticing ride on a lovely canyon!
We had a fantastic day from the cruise over where the staff were fantastic as was the steamer. Everything was of a very high standard. At the farm we were greeted warmly and our guide/ shepherd who was Peter was lovely. His commentary was funny and informative it did not feel like a mass trip but personal and individual. The afternoon tea was delicious and the sheep dog demonstration and shearing of the sheep was a highlight. The ladies in the shop were a delight and the shop was very reasonably priced. We steamed back to Queenstown a very happy group of Ellen people thank you xxx
This was a fantastic thrill ride. The drivers are so skilful and scare the hell out of you but they know exactly what they are doing. You go quite a way down the river about 8 km and on the way there and back you weave in and out of canyon just missing rocks. Then there's the 360 spins!!
the jet boat and white water rafting were totally awesome, I would highly recommend these vendors and guides. The helicopter ride was a disappointment as there was no narrative and a quick ride to the drop off point for the raft ride. We were dropped off and then had to wait for the bus with the rest of the group and the rafts to arrive. There was the expectation that the heli ride would be as long as the bus ride but with some narrative and a thorough view of the valley and landscape, but it was a less than 5 minute ride straight to the raft departure site! Then wait for the rest of the group to arrive that rode the bus!
Awesome!!!! What else is there to say??
Very good trip exciting, great driver very informative
We loved every minute even though the weather was rainy most of the day we saw super sites and location. Hannah and Badger were super with lots of information and made it interesting and fun. Well worth the money and had tea in the elf woods. Great afternoon out thank you.
One of the best trips we have been on the water was high with all the rain and this made it more exciting. The whole afternoon ran like clockwork all equipment provided and was effective. The guide was great giving information, great instruction and very safety conscious. I cannot remember his name but he was from the South Island he was friendly and supportive throughout. The rapids were great and everyone in our party of 12 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We were picked up from our hotel in Queenstown and driven through some beautiful scenery. We stopped on route, the most memorable place was Mirror Lake, Monkey Creek where we were lucky to see a couple of Kea birds getting up to mischief and the Chasm. Our driver was very informative and friendly. Our trip through Milford Sound was amazing and the boat took us up close to a waterfall. An amazing activity that I would recommend to anyone.
