It went like clockwork as planned. Plenty of room on the boat. Good food but the word is, get your meal as soon as it is available. They claimed to have run out of bread rolls when my wife got there but we saw them later being set up for a later cruise. Not helpful.
We got close to waterfalls, penguins and seals. (something the smaller boats were claiming they had an advantage on - Not so).
Tip: We heard the day before that the road was blocked. Don't believe it until you see the sign on the road as you are driving there. We heard the same thing last time and it was clear in the morning.

What a fantastic trip. The boat was well appointed and great soup for a cold morning. We had a brilliant clear day. Our skipper was humorous and very informative. Great value.

What can we say, yet another great trip with Viator made better by the great weather we had on the day so we could see the awesome scenery. You really mustn't miss Milford Sound - just make sure you get there early if you are trying to park a camper van - spaces quite limited

We were blessed with great weather. I was expecting not to see much at all from other peoples comments but it was truely spectacular. I think this is a must see on any trip to New Zealand. The roadtrip to Milford Sound was very windy through the mountains but everywhere in New Zealand seems to be the same. Loved this trip.

Milford is more dramatic, but smaller than Doubtful Sound. Treat yourself, do both.

Simply spectacular is the only way to describe Milford Sound. You travel to a place hoping to enjoy a beautiful sunny day with blue skies. No-one should under estimate the splendor of the area when it has been raining.

The sights to see when water is gushing over the face of such dramatic mountain faces is something to behold. Can't wait to return and do it all again. The ferry ride is worth every cent
