Ontdek Milford Sound tijdens een dagtrip vanuit Queenstown. U reist in een luxe bus met panoramische ramen door het prachtige Fiordland en maakt een onvergetelijke schilderachtige boottocht door de majestueuze Milford Sound.
Milford Sound has long been on to-do list but logistics of getting there were off—puttingHowever a comfortable coach, witty and knowledgeable driver and plenty of photo stops made the journey pass quickly. The cruise on the Sound was fantastic with the added bonus of a very high class buffet lunch
This was a great tour! Milford Sound was one of the highlights of our South Island tour. We wished we could have stayed longer! My biggest problem with this tour was the driver especially on the return trip luckily we sleep most of the way there. The driver chose to go very fast on very tiny 2 lane roads in a gigantic tour bus. This made me very queasy and I am not someone who gets car sick easily. I think we tried to do too much in the short time we had. Lunch was a bit later in the afternoon about 2 or so so make sure to bring a snack. The juicy cruise was awesome. The only downside is that it is really crowded. If we had chosen to do this on our own, I am sure it would have been easier to get pictures etc. The scenery of Milford Sound is well worth everything!
Milford Sound is amazing. The tour stopped along the way at 3 areas for photos, and that was good also. The boat trip on the Sound was superb, and due to the cancellation of one of the other tours, the boat was not crowded at all. The boat captain moved us up next to some seals, and at the mouth of the Sound, a school of dolphins joined us. He also steered the boat very close to one of the spectacular waterfalls. The weather, which can be quite variable, was perfect and quite warm for the time of year.
On the negative side which was not really too bad, the bus ride there and back was long, the coach was large and almost completely full, and the driver seemed extremely fascinated by farming production costs and methods. In hindsight, we might have preferred a smaller scale transport, or we might even have decided to splurge on the return trip via plane.
A very long day on the coach 12hrs but well worth the trip, The coach driver kept us well entertained and was very knowledgeable,but just a shame about the weather on the day we visited, but that's the luck of the draw when booking a holiday. But was still very spectacular on the boat trip and definately recommended.
An extremely long day, but would return in a heartbeat! Traveling to the Milford sound from Queenstown does take some time, and is not for those who get car sick. The roads leading down to the sound are very winding. The views are BREATHTAKING!!!! I would recommend skipping the free lunch wasn't that great and purchasing your own on the boat. Its SPECTACULAR EVERYONE MUST GO HERE
