Excellent tour and Nigel our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. The Milford Sound cruise portion, about 2 hours, was amazing - high waterfalls, sea lions and dolphins. BBQ lunch was well done with sausage, chicken and lamb kebabs.
Be ready with your camera as you don't know what may appear around the next turn. We came across a huge herd of sheep on the road in the morning and also 3 Kea birds attacking a car roof.
Small group made for easy travel.
Would recommend as great way to visit Milford Sound area.
A Wonderful bus driver and guide. Awesome picnic along the way! We would definitely do this trip again!
Really good day. Weather was absolutely terrible but despite this the guy running it was very friendly, funny and informative. He really made the day for everyone.
If doing a Milford Sound day tour I would 100% recommend doing it with this company
Nigel the bus driver is our new friend. Views are magnificent all through the trip and the Milford Sound was incredible. Lunch was delicious,you feel you are in a picnic! Fly back if you can, worth the steep price!
Excellent trip! Nigel was a great host very educated guy with interesting dialog throughout the trip. The BBQ both food and lunch spot did not disappoint. Thanks BBQ Bus for a fun trip to the Milford Sound!
Excellent trip from Queenstown to the amazing Fiordland National Park and Milford Sound. Nigel was our driver/tour guide, and did a fantastic job keeping us engaged on what is a long day of driving about 7 AM to 8:30 PM. Major attractions include Mirror Lakes, The Chasm, more waterfalls than I've ever seen along the drive through Fiordland National Park, and a 1.5 hour tour on Milford Sound in a nice covered boat. Not to mention the BBQ lunch, which was excellent. Weather was absolutely not great the day we took this tour low 50s F, rainy, and high winds, despite being the middle of summer!, but the natural beauty of our destinations and Nigel's engaging personality made for a wonderful day! Highly recommended.
Excellent trip. The nature on the way to Milford Sound and in the fjord was incredible. Our tour guide Nigel had loads of interesting knowledge and great humor which made our long drive very enjoyable. And the lunch was top thing ! One of the best tours ever!
We had a great time on this tour. The scenery was amazing, the guide the owner of the company really personable and lovely. You could tell that he loves what he does and New Zealand. While we had our own car while on this trip, we opted to join this tour because we knew we'd be able to really relax and enjoy the sights if someone else was driving. I highly recommend this tour!
Our Day with Rob and our new friends on the bus was AWESOME! I am so glad we did this trip on a smaller bus with more stops to see and experience things. Rob was informative, funny, professional and a great guy to get to know. The food was some of the best of our stay in Queenstown. We would do it again!

Small group with small tour company made this a much better day and experience.
This was an excellent trip. Nigel, our tour guide, was very informative and kept us entertained all day. The BBQ lunch in a surprisingly beautiful spot was very tasty.
There had been a fair bit of rain and the day itself was quite wet but this just made all the waterfalls in the Sound magnificent and all the rivers rushing and tumbling along. The cruise captain was also very informative and the cruise through the fjord unbelievable.
Tour guide/ owner was very informative and interesting, he made everyone very welcome and the BBQ was more than plentiful and varied.
Really enjoyable day.
An excellent way to see the Fiordland National Park area and the great Milford Sound. We enjoyed it thoroughly. One of the must see places in the world.
An excellent day! Learnt so much from our tour driver, Marty. An excellent way to see paradise on earth. A must do experience!
It is a big day but a lot of beautiful scenery to see, so it feels like
The bus was small sized so it was a more intimate trip, our guide took us
to secluded stops where we got to see amazing scenery and many different
types of wild life.
Once we were on the boat we were provided with a BBQ lunch with a few
different salads, this was a nice touch for a long day.
Two thumbs up! This small tour can't be beat. Our driver, guide and BBQ chef Nigel kept us informed and laughing the whole day, and went out of his way to take care of things for us. Thank you for a memorable experience.
This was a great experience and one I would do again or recommend to anyone. The BBQ bus had great communication and was even 5 minutes early for pick-up. The driver/guide was the owner of the company for our particular day and trip. He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and was glad to talk to us about anything and everything. It was raining the whole day and the bus even had umbrellas for us to use. The food was great and there were plenty of stops offered. Boat cruise was also top notch. On the way back to Queenstown, a movie was even shown for our entertainment. All in all, a great day. I would highly suggest booking directly on the BBQ bus' website though!
Very much enjoyed the small tour setting with stops where no big buses come into!!! Highly recommend this company and our guide Marty who shows us his country with personal pride!!! THANK YOU!!
Awesome trip! I'm so glad I booked this trip versus one of the bigger tour busses. While we were on the same path as some of the bigger ones, since we had a smaller group we were able to beat the huge crowds to most places giving us first dibs at pictures without masses of people in the background and bathrooms when necessary. Furthermore, our tour guide Nigel made a point to learn everyone's name and include everybody in conversations/jokes/stories along the way which made a day with a lot of driving pass quickly. We were also able to stop at a few extra places and be flexible with our plan and take advantage of the best places possible that suited our specific group and weather the best. The lunch provided was awesome also, one of the best lamb kebab's I've ever had for sure. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone else thinking about doing Milford Sound in one day. One other advantage, we had a smaller cruise boat than other trips too so we were able to be outside on the deck, versus just inside the larger ferry boats. 10/10 would do again.
Best trip ever, wonderful experience with BBQ Bus to Milford Sound. Nigel was AWESOME and we had the opportunity to learn history and nature facts.
Our guide Nigel made the trip really great! Unexpected snow in November made it truly memorable, even though the cold weather wasn and #39;t ideal, still an amazing experience.
This tour was fun, exciting, and the barbecue was a tasty touch. Great trip, and our guide, Graham, was fun and knowledgeable.
