Our tour guide Simon was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We learnt so much about the area that we wouldn't have learnt if we'd just driven to Milford ourselves. Overall it was a great experience and well worth it!
Great trip with a very good guide. Simon was knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining. Although Milford Sound was beautiful, I probably enjoyed the drive there and back even more. We stopped at scenic sights, took a couple of short strolls around the mirror ponds and to cascades in the bush and had a chance to play with Kea birds. Very glad we chose this company for the trip rather than doing it on our own.

Perfect trip. 33 passenger bus was just right for the trip.
Arrived early and did not have to put up with mobs that arrived around 12:00 to do the same tour.
As a general rule you either travel the sound in rain and see many beautiful waterfalls or have no rain and no waterfalls. We loved seeing the waterfalls as they are the beauty of the sound.
Must do! We had a guide going around for years. He knew a lot and he told us a lot. Little group so lots of time to have very nice stops and take pictures. The Soundtrip was in the sun so unforgetable. Very nice and almost a whole day trip. Relaxed and fun too!
Excellent. Really informative driver. Excellent organisation. Stunning trip. Would highly recommend this trip.

This was brilliant, the small group idea worked perfectly as when disembarking from the coach you were not waiting around when we had to move on. Coach driver was great, very informative and a good sense of humour. Boat was perfect as again their was not too many people so all in all would really recommend this trip.
Absolutely breath-taking ....wonderful day and very well looked after .. just one improvement, maybe an extra loo break on the drive or at least info on how long to next one!! but memorable day !
Fabulous day trip, had it all. Bus driver excellent, very informative and many interesting stops. The boat trip was great too, just the right length of time and lunch was adequate. Thanks
Very informative, awesome landscape, well equipped boat which was not too large.
This tour was by a local tour operator under Jucy, had around 18 ppl. Our guide was Simon, who used to work as a conservationist before becoming a guide. Very knowledgeable about the stuff around Fiorland. Did a couple of short hikes which is not possible with those big tour buses. Enjoyable and recommended!
The most fantastic experience of our holiday. The guides Duncan and Dougie were great, I would recommend this trip to anyone, first class all the way.
Excellent trip, had a fantastic day. Tour guide very knowledgable. Lunch was fab, pitta pit on board the boat (I had chicken and cheese, boyfriend had BBQ steak) and cookie and free hot drinks! We paid $320 each to take the separate helicopter trip, was the best money we spent in NZ.
Well exceeded our expectations, with knowledgable and experience local guide we thoroughly enjoy the tour.
Fantastic trip. Beautiful scenery. Frank, our driver was very entertaining. Lunch was just a pita wrap. Ok but not great. Tea and coffee available for the whole trip.

A good guide (Frank) and plenty of stops to view the incredible scenery. The boat ride was spectacular and overall the day is breath-taking.
It's difficult not to have a magnificent time when sailing through Milford Sound. Our driver was nice and friendly, letting us stop at plenty of beautiful places. We were a bit annoyed to find out that way more people were on both the bus and ship than is promised in the description--33 people on the bus and about 100 or so on the boat.

Fantastic day out - driver was hilarious, and knowledgable, but didn't overload us with information.
Great day out - highly recommend.
Driver was polite and informative but we did not stop much on the way in - trying to get there on time or early.
Missed photos when the light was best. Also did not make many stops on way back so photographers would be disappointed with the bus trip. The boat trip and lunch were good.
Shouldn't be advertised as small cruise really as at least 30 people on our bus. Driver was very informative along the route, cruise was brilliant and food on boat very tasty. All in all a great day out.
It was a fabulous trip with lots of information and beautiful scenery. It is well worth it to visit Milford Sound with a small group in stead off making your way there by yourself. The cruise was peaceful and scenic and the staff very friendly. Well worth the money.
It was awesomeeeee!!!!! The weather was good for the first way, so we did some walks, on the boat also, we saw some dolphins, very great and for the return was raining but not too bad because we could see a many of waterfalls, it was splendid. The guide explain a lot of things about the nature and also the country if you ask some questions. Good value for money.
