We actually didn't see Mitre Peak in its entirety because of low cloud, but the number of waterfalls in the area was amazing, literally hundreds! The tour guide was very obliging and quite happy for people to chat to him on the bridge. He took us very close to the edges of the sound for a closer look at the vegetation, wildlife etc.
The cruise on Milford Sound was amazing, it was everything I had expected. The on-board was lunch was very average. Do the cruise only.
The cruise was absolutely stunning! The only bad thing was that the road was closed when we got there. I understand you can update us if we call, but as someone who doesn't read the fine text, I would have liked an update via email. The road opened luckily but it was closed for 2 days before hand
Beautiful scenery and the information given during the trip was great and relevant. The only downside was the incredibly rude lady who met us at the desk. A smile doesn't cost anything!
loved it but I wasn't that impressed with the buffet lunch for the price.

We really enjoyed the cruise, it was a perfect day with lots of sunshine and hardly any wind. Magnificent scenery.
The staff and facilities on the cruise were excellent and the scenery could have been spectacular but unfortunately the weather was bad and the rain and mist made it hard to see as much as we would have liked. I had been to Milford Sound with my family many years ago on a clear day and remember the scenery and dolphins which were not evident this trip. The rain did, however, help allow for the many waterfalls to be spilling into the fiord and so that was a consolation. My husband enjoyed the experience and found the weather exhilarating.
I would recommend that visitors remember to take insect repellent for the local sand flies which are quite determined!
This is an awesome tour that I will be recommending to others. The commentary was fun and informative, the scenery spectacular and the food was pretty good also.
The only complaint is, as I was accompanied by an elderly person who has trouble walking any distance, the walk from the carpark to the wharf is a little long, perhaps a shuttle service should be provided for more imobile patrons. Otherwise fanatastic. Well done!

Excellent cruise. Everything very accurately and in time. The only thing, walk it is small on time, for 1 h 50 minutes you manage to examine only the main gulf, and there is a wish to look at other gulfs.
The experience was well worth it even allowing for the rain. The waterfalls were spectacular. The only thing I was not happy about was prices displayed to buy drinks were not correct and they would not honour the board prices. Staff were a bit rude.
We had an excellent time on the cruise, the only downside was the weather!
Stunning views, delicious meal provided and very well detailed explanation during the cruise.

A beautiful day and a thoroughly enjoyable cruise. The scenery is stunning! The only complaint we had was that there were not any window tables available to us, even though we were one of the first passengers to board. The tables were all allotted to tour groups, even though we had booked months in advance. We were told to find a seat upstairs to eat, what turned out to be - a delicious buffet. Not fair really, but everything else was wonderful.

A greet cruise but skip the lunch, otherwise you'll find yourself running outside between mouthfuls to look at the view and, if you're lucky, (we were) the dolphins. You can change your mind once you get on board.
Due to mist and train we didn't see a lot but it was still a fabulous cruise..really eerie and mysterious. Loved it
I was very pleased with the whole experience and the 11am cruise was the one to be on as all the coaches arrived later. The lunch buffet was good too.

Better organization or verbal explanation by staff at entrance of the reserved seating for the lunch.There was some confusion regarding reserved signs on some of the tables which were reserved for certain groups.

The trip to Milford Sound was sensational. The scenery beautiful. Unfortunately the food was not good, but the trip is still worth it.
Scenery and ship fantastic. Lunch not so great and very early
Heavy rain/strong winds kept passengers inside the cruise vessel for most of the excursion. Although there's a lot more waterfalls due to the rain, did not managed to experience the tranquility of Milford Sound
