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!!!
Was a great day out although a very long day. Guides were very informative of landmarks and general information of area. Barbeque excellent with a great spot to eat. Very good value for money.
The tour was very friendly. The nature land so beautiful very different than Tahiti. And the BBQ a good idea, this tour will be recommended to our friends.
This bus tour is absolutely perfect for anyone wishing to visit Milford Sound. Our driver was so passionate about 'his' country. He got us to all the perfect spots to see the beautiful scenery around the shed loads of coaches. So informative and such a nice guy. If you've spent your life savings flying around the world, the last thing you would want is an Englishman posing as a Kiwi- which I did actually have! Although the main reason we booked this tour was due to the response from the Manager on tripadvisor.com, this shows how passionate they are! A truly brilliant day!! Thank you so much.
The people who ran this trip really made it a wonderful experience, they were very informative and lunch was great.
What a wonderful trip! We experienced much more than just Milford Sound!
