We got a really nice day for our tour. Apparently Milford Sound the other destination out of Te Anau was expecting rain. It was mostly sunny, with some clouds moving in near the end of the tour. Gorgeous scenery throughout the entire cruise which I cannot compare to any other place I've ever been. Alaska come the closest, but even not quite. We made it al the way out to the Tasman sea for a little bit and even caught site of a couple of penguins, which I though would all be gone by this time of year. My only complaint is that I had too many pictures to wade through!
fantastic we really enjoyed this trip but did wonder why it is not more advertised
Stunning scenery, very well organised, a highlight of our trip to NZ
Service was excellent and the boat trip on Doubtful Sound was spectacular. A perfect day.

A lovely trip, coach driver was funny and very informative.....brilliant!
An absolutely brilliant day. One of the highlights of our trip to NZ.
The staff were excellent but it was all about the scenery.
Even fealt quite emotional when they turned all the engines off for a silent 2 minutes
We were a bit concerned when we got to the dock at Manapouri as it was raining and very overcast. It started raining hard and rained for the boat ride and then the bus ride but the bus driver told us how lucky we were to be there when it was raining as there are more and bigger waterfalls. He was right. It stopped raining shortly after we got on the boat for Doubtful Sound and the experience could not have been better. Everyone was very nice and shared a lot of information.
