Beautiful scenery all around...saw fur seals and a waterfall...it was an awesome day out too! Would highly recommend this day trip. I found the bus there and back comfy and enjoyable as well but you can take a helicopter or short flight back for additional funds.
It was a long day, unfortunately rained on the day but still good:)
The driver was very nice and informative.
excellent tour. great place, great people. loved it! The Great Sights staff rock.
If you are in Queenstown, you must see Milford Sound. It is a spectacular sight. Even though it rained the day of our tour, if was worth it. It is a long day, but the bus ride is comfortable. I was a little disappointed with our guide, however, because we were constantly being rushed i.e. you have 10 minutes here, 15 minutes there, immediately after the boat ride be back on the bus. That is my only reason for not "highly recomending" this tour.
While the trip was long, the stops along the way in Fiordland and the trip to the Tasman Sea were well worth it. FYI - they stop in Te Anau for souvenirs and snacks to help tide you over during the long journey.
A well paced trip and very well organised. Milford Sound and the scenery to the Sound were wonderful. Smaller than Doubtful Sound but still wonderful.
The programme for the day was well-planned. Weather is something out of control so depending on the weather one sees a different view of Milford Sound. Would be good to get back to Milford a second time with a sunny weather. The most impressive thing is the detailed and lively commentary performed by the driver during the 4-hour drive, even better was the available translation in Mandarin and Japanese. The only disappointment was the quality of the meal on board the boat. Meant to be international lunch buffet, it was just not cooked and served well enough for the price we paid.
It was a lovely day, but a very very long day.
The trip across the Fjordland National Park was great but Milford Sound is a hype. Nothing extraordinary about the place.
The only problem was the weather - it rained about all day.
