Rob was an excellent guide. He was funny and knowledgable about everything we did. We stopped and saw so much Milford Sound was absolutely breathtaking, but I think my favorite part was the drive up.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

Very well organized tour. Amazing views, the scenery is really overwhelming. It takes a full day, very long, but its totally worth it.

Amazing place. Our guide, Chris, was really good - very informative about the area - went the extra mile for us and kept us laughing as well with his sense of humour. Magnificent, beautiful, rugged area of New Zealand and not to be missed. The drive was long, but the result was worth it and if people don't fancy the return trip by road they can at an extra cost as you would expect arrange to fly back to Queenstown.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Nigel, our tour guide continuously provided information about the history of everything that we passed through. On the way to the Milford sound we made few stops at scenic sights. The lunch was delicious. Since we desired vegan lunch he had special vegan choices for us. On the return we got to watch a nice movie in the bus. The whole trip was very enjoyable.

This was a super great experience! Everything from the boat cruise to the BBQ, everything was superb and organized well! It was a bit cloudy and rainy when I went but the views were incredible and loads of rushing water at Milford.

Our driver Chris was excellent - knowledgeable and entertaining. we had had some good photo opportunities and a great spot for our bbq lunch. We also stopped at the Chasm and it was an amazing taste of rainforest. it was amazing to see Keas at our last stop before the tunnel. The Milford Sound boat trip was awesome - it wasn't too crowded so everyone got great views. it was a misty rainy trip but that meant we saw many waterfalls and there was a great atmosphere to my many photos. Beautiful scenery the whole way. It was a long day but worth it. Totally recommend this to people of all ages.
