The bus ride was...
Mildred_A, Jan. 2022
The bus ride was extremely long and then the ferry was also a good few hours. Wouldn’t recommend for those with motion sickness
Great experience
Pornpop_U, Jun. 2021
The company was eager to respond enquiries quickly and the tour guide, Kreig, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had great time with this trip.
Small group better
Joan_R, Feb. 2021
A great small group tour. Unfortunately our bus driver Callum talked all the way to Milford and mostly about himself which was a little annoying. The smaller cruise boat was really great. The captain took us into extra places and even nosed the front in under a waterfall so we could fill a cup and drink fresh mountain water. Tea/coffee was available free the entire cruise.

The tour itself was amazing, Krieg the Aussie was a very knowledgeable guide and an excellent driver. He was helpful and entertaining and super patient. We had rain, snow, wind and sunshine all in one day. The views to and from the Milford Sounds was spectacular. There was lots of opportunities to take photos. Couple of suggested areas for improvement, we were out for atleast 12 hours of the day so the lunch pack was merely a snack and not suitable for such a long trip. If you including lunch then provide a descent lunch not a $5 sandwich and chips. Secondly the stop at Te Anu was exceptionally expensive. I have never paid $6.50 for a pie ever! This is the only stop for food on the tour so it should be affordable. Overall the tour was still great.
A tour that you must do!!!

Excellent Tour Guide
william_p, Jan. 2020
Our tour guide Callum was fantastic with an upbeat attitude and fantastic knowledge. The cruise was not great and a long drive. We anticipated a different experience.
Fantastic
winnie_W, Dec. 2019
It rained for the most part, but fantastic nonetheless. One could only imagine what a majestic place it would be had it been sunny! We were also fortunate enough to have a great tour guide (Dan) and group of fellow travelers.
Amazing tour and guide
Sb01211931, Oct. 2019
Callum was an amazing and knowledgeable guide. He drove with care and took time to answer any questions we had. Made sure to take pics of us and we never felt rushed. We highly recommend this tour and Callum!! The boat crew was also amazing and knowledgeable! Thank you from Karen and Amy
