We joined the coach from Te Anau. The drive to Milford Sound was spectacular and the coach driver was brilliant. He has provided more information with a sense of humour making the trip more intresting. The meal on the boat was good. The boat trip was full of breathtaking scenery the whole time with plenty of opportunities for photos. Seen many water falls all along. It was a fantastic and memorable experience. Love to spend at least a week at Milford Sound.

We went to Milford Sound by Coach from Te Anau. The drive to the Sound was actually as spectacular as the Sound itself. It was a rainy day and there was a light dusting of snow on the mountains. Visiting Milford Sound when it is raining does not disappoint as the many waterfalls are spectacular. Make sure you dress very warmly. When we left Te Anau it was sunny and quite mild but it was raining and absolutely freezing at the Sound. The Coach Driver was brilliant. The information he provided was excellent and his sense of humour was great. If I did this tour again (and I would), I wouldnt bother with the lunch on the boat. If you do have the lunch make sure you get yourself a table (so you have a window seat while you eat), and then queue up for your meal. It takes a long time to get through the queue!
Overall a great day with many wonderful photo opportunities.

Bus ride was comfortable and the driver offered an excellent commentary. Enjoyed the glass roof to the bus for great views of the mountains. The boat was very comfortable and lunch was nice. Breathtaking scenery the whole time with plenty of opportunities for photos. An exhausting day but well worth the effort.

well organised day. I would like to make a special mention of our coach driver, Brian Stacey, who was not only an excellent driver but was very informative.

Every thing about the trip went soothely, the bus transferes and the drivers comments along the way made the trip come alive. But it rained heavily on the date which spoiled the views, however the waterfalls were spectacular. Over all evaluation a good day well worth seeing.

We enjoyed the bus trip and our driver was very friendly and informative.Highly recommend this trip.The only thing i would suggest is they need to clean the glass roof of the bus.

Trip was wonderful and well-organized. Brian bus driverguide was knowledgeable, funny and helpful. Always check prices doing it independently vs thru Viator. Driving to Milford Sound on your own you would miss seeing and understanding a great deal take the bus!

It was a fantastic day - misty rain, lots of waterfalls. Everything was organised very well. The driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The cruise on the Sound was magnificent. I understand how difficult it is to accommodate many people's different tastes, but sandwiches, cake and fruit would have been ok for lunch instead of the buffet. I felt like I was missing out on the scenery while I was eating!

Tour was well organized. Kind bus-driver with knowledge about content of the trip.
Negative point: when we returned with the bus the driver seemed to be in a very rush resulting in very fast driving, passing by others on two-lane ways in the mountains and pushing cars away from the bus by driving very near to those cars.
