I loved this tour! The bus is fairly small and comfortable so our group was a decent size without being too big. Our guide was extremely informative. Lunch was absolutely delicious and we stopped lots of times on the way for photos and beautiful scenery. The cruise on the Sound allowed for more amazing photo opportunities and was a welcome chance to walk around a bit. My only complaint would be the length of time spent on the bus but otherwise there was nothing wrong with this tour. I would easily do it again.
Super! the sights, BBQ everything was great. Just that the weather weren't that great.. but still it was phenomenal.. It was also a small group which I really liked..
Milfourd Sound was breathtaking. Experience guide and unforgettable vistas.
Amazing, has to be one of the most picturesque destinations on earth.
We had a wonderful time in a small group, enabling the two tour leaders to give us lots of information. Plenty of stops and opportunities to do short walks. Good barbecue lunch. Video on way home when most tired.
Not the biggest company operating the Queenstown to Milford route, but I really enjoyed the smaller BBQ bus and the personal commentary of the guide. Milford to Queenstown is a long way but worth the trip. I was just glad that I was not driving.
Great trip, great guide, and wonderful trip - if only the weather had been better!
All I can say is WOW - My friend and I were visiting NZ south Islands for the first time and my breath was taken away more than once on our trip to Milford Sound. We were picked up promptly try and grab breakfast somewhere before you board from the beautiful Novotel Lakeside and off we went...it is an early start and a long journey so make sure you get plenty of rest the night before and are well hydrated. A mini bus took us to join the other bus tour and we were off. Leaving early on a beautiful day in October gave us perfect views and breathtaking scenery as we traveled towards Milford Sound. We stopped enough times to take photos and since we were a small bus we could change the schedule to beat the crowds! Our bus driver was superb and professional and the boat tour was just WOW! We saw waterfalls and seals and views everywhere like in a movie and the BBQ lunch was decent with coffee and tea included. Take your own water bottle for the trip though! Also take warm clothing for when you are on top of the boat as it gets very windy and cool and you get quite close to the waterfalls. We took all pictures on the way there of all the parks and treats along the scenic route and it rained on the way back but that's OK cause we slept most of the way back anyway - a long day but worth every penny!
Very good day trip. Staff were awesome. Good NZ commentary. Had perfect weather in the morning and had fun watching movie on the way home. Thanks!
We absolutely had a wonderful day that was really well organised - heaps of time to take photos and a great lunch!! I would definitely recommend this day trip with Viator!!
Great informative and entertaining driver. The views and hikes were awesome. The buffet on the boat was also awesome.
It was awesome!!! I loved it!!! It was a very long day, so I was very tired but I enjoyed!!! The guide and driver were very kind and friendly. I and my mum felt very welcome. It is a long way to go and come back, but it's worth the time!!!
