Superb trip - exciting going on the trip - 2 boat journeys, 2 coach journeys were brilliant but, and we were prior aware, that the return journey being the same naturally and understandably lost the "newness" and hating the Americanism "W*W" factor saying was lost on the return journey - superb just the same but wouldn't repeat the trip - flying back might be an option but not sensible because gaining little returning from Te-Anau.

Bonne organisation du voyage. Beau fjord. Dommage que le soleil n'ait pas été au RDV. Chauffeurs-guides très bavards. Attention au moustiques au point d'embarquement sur le bateau ! Je trouve qu'il manquait un point d'orgue à cette croisière !

A fantastic day filled with gorgeous views. Very similar to the Milford Sound tour, but both are worth doing.

Beautiful! What more could you ask for, seals and flipping dolphins and don't forget the view. Beware though that this is a long day and like yourself there are many tourists on one big boat. Be quick to secure a good spot or you will be bombarded with pushy photo snapping tourists.

A wonderful trip from start to finish. The whole tour was well thought out and well paced. Doubtful Sound is breathtaking and a must see on any trip to NZ.

Pleasant day although a long way from Queenstown. Better to do this trip from Te Anau.

The portal seemed to be confused with daylight saving times. We booked the trip before changing the clock and the voucher clearly said 8:15, but we were woken up at 7:15 with the bus expecting us. Other than that, the trip was great!

Unfortunately the day I went it was very misty and so couldn't see much of Doubtful Sound. It was a relatively expensive trip though and going on a big bus tour-party isn't for everyone

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

This trip is very long, 12 hours and only 3 hours is actually in the Doubtful Sound Area. The rest involves both Coach and Boat Cruise getting out to the area. The day we went in September it was cloudy and rainy. They said it often rains in the area and acted like is was more the norm than the exception. I would wait to book this trip until you are in Queenstown and know for sure the weather will be good.
