Really great tour - our driver- Jamie was outstanding, and made the whole experience even better . Highly recommended .
Great trip will do again when I return. Driver bus and cruise first class. Loved the stops and walks on the way to Milford Sound. Spectacular scenery does not begin to describe the magic of this wonderful wilderness. Area.The wet weather did not dampen my experience and Mother Nature turned on a spectacular display of magnificent waterfalls at every turn.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. Enjoyed the comfortable coach and excellent commentary from our guide. Lost our breath repeatedly with all the beautiful scenery!
Great tour with a very humorous driver/guide. It was raining on the day that we went for the tour but that proved to be fantastic. We were surrounded with hundreds of waterfalls cascading down the hills as we drove into the ranges. The boat trip was very good and memorable. Highly recommended.
great trip. One of the best Ive taken. The guide, Brian, was spectacular. The scenery was gorgeous and it was worth every penny. Id recommend this to everyone who goes to Queenstown.
Fantastic! And such beauty! Even though this was a long day, it was so scenic and amazing I didn't mind the long drive at all. Our driver was very friendly and ensured we were informed of all the highlights along the way. Very happy I took this tour.

Excellent! Good combination of bus, catamaran and trecking.
Places visted are amazing!!
Milford Sound is a must-see on the South Island. This tour is long (takes at least five hours to get to the Sound) but with stops on the way, the ride is beautiful and relaxing. The tour guide Brian was informative and had a great knowledge of the area - if only he didn't talk so much! :D The cruise itself is great, however, do not get the buffet lunch as we didn't think it was worth it. You are better off bringing your own, or buying a sandwich, crisps and a drink on the boat. Also, highly recommended to upgrade to a scenic flight back to Queenstown. This is organised by the tour guide on the way to Milford and worth every penny if only to shave 4 hours off the bus ride back. :)
What an experience! Even with terrible, rainy weather this was so worth it. A sight to see, don't miss out!
Well worth doing this trip. The river cruise was the highlight.
The bus driver needs peoples skills though.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome - don't bother with the lunch though. not good at all or worth the money. I should have brought some sandwiches along with me.
The bus ride was long, but was quite interesting and included several stops along the way! Milford Sound is and was amazing, so well worth the trip. The boat trip was also fun and made for an enjoyable day. I did not take the buffet option and I am not sure if it was worth it to be honest. Personally, either buy a sandwich onboard or bring your own. I did not fly back to Queenstown, however the option was there... however I found the cost's were very high! I found out you can take a helicopter tour from Queens town and land on a glacier for just over $200 NZD compared with the $550 or so that was suggested. So best to do your home work ! All in all it was a good day out!
