    Kia Ora Ash, Thanks for choosing to cruise Milford Sound with us, and for sharing this awesome review. The drive is just as spectacular as the destination, but the fiord itself really is next level! We are so thrilled you were suitably wowed by the beauty of Fiordland, and that you enjoyed the hospitality of our famously friendly team. We hope to see you at Milford Sound another time, Best wishes, Kate

    Every second at Milford Sound is worth the long coach journey. The boat is excellent and both the captain - and the coach driver - give excellent commentaries along the way.
    The rain made for great waterfalls..but
    PATSY195261, Dec 2019
    Constant rain in Queenstown made for a less pleasant visit and journey to Milford Sound. However the fast flowing rivers and the waterfalls were magnificent. All arrangements went smoothly and our driver allowed us several stops along the way. Not sure whether it would be better or not in nicer weather, but enjoyed it anyway.
    This was the best tour I have ever...

    This was the best tour I have ever been on! Although the coach ride was long, it was well worth it! The scenering through Fiordland Park was amazing. The driver was very informative and entertaining. The cruise in Milford Sound was stunning (jaw dropping).
