The tour was very well organised . Good stops on the way.
Now, just so you know-it will rain. You will need and umbrella, waterproof shoes etc, as you will get wet. It rains more that 200 days a years so the likelihood of being there on a Sunny day are very slim. Also in Autumn and Winter months it may be too cold/windy to be out on the deck during the cruise, which means you won't get nice photos. The ferry itself is very modest, the view from there may not be worth a 12 hour trip. Try to get a weather forecast for Milford Sound before you book to make sure its worth the effort.
Kia Ora Katrin, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. You are right that Milford Sound gets about 200 rainy days a year, but this can be the most beautiful time to visit as water = waterfalls!
This was an awesome whole day outing. Our driver/guide was very well versed with regards to the history of the area we drove through. He also stopped frequently for us to stretch our legs and to take photos. We enjoyed the boat trip on Milford sound. Weather was not all in our favour. We saw quite a few waterfalls, saw a penguin and some seals.
