I was hesitant to take a tour but I don’t regret it at all. It was fabulous from beginning to end. So much more interesting than had we just driven ourselves. The glass roof bus was perfect and the driver and guide had a lot interesting info. There were a few stops on the way allowing photo opportui
This tour was well organized and a good value. The coach ride was enjoyable because the bus was designed with windows in the roof of the bus and this allowed passengers to take in all of the scenery. The boat tour of Milford Sound was also enjoyable--it was clean and it was nice to be able to go inside to warm up. I am very happy I did this tour.
The sights of Milton Sound are quite iconic. However when we had our trip it was raining with very low cloud/mist and difficult to really appreciate the sights. However, it would be wrong to suggest that we saw nothing. The vastness of the place was incredible as were the waterfalls. We saw seals a couple of times but it would really depend on the time of year for other wildlife. There was a great guide on the nature tour with a good sense of humour. Very informative and amusing at the same time. In the two hour trip there were moments when we could see a bit better but it does rain there 260 days of the year. I am very glad I made the trip as I wouldn't have missed it.
The tour was undertaken by Real Journey. It was just amazing from the time we were picked up from the Hotel right to the end. Our bus guide was very knowledgable, and so was the guide on the cruise. There were ample stops for photos both ways and we were not rushed at all. Food on the cruise was just lovely and delicious. Overall a very great experience and would highly recommend this tour and Real Journey.
My day tour to Milford Sound was fantastic!!! The bus with glass top was amazing and everybody, from the driver to the boat guide, did their best to make the day really especial. I enjoyed every minute.
We decided to take the tour rather than drive ourselves as the weather was predicted to be rainy. Glad we did as it was a wet, windy day so we all got to relax and enjoy the scenery. The bus driver was funny and informative. The kids enjoyed the day and seeing the waterfalls going sideways in the Sound, instead of down, was pretty amazing due to the wind, and we saw two seals on the cruise.
A unique and unbelievably beautiful part of NZ that remains unspoiled. Thankfully Milford has not become commercialised with unnecessary retail outlets and offers an unforgettable experience of natural wonder.The nature cruise wasn't overcrowded and delivered on education and awesome value.
