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.
This tour was great - the guide was very friendly, he remembered my name for the whole day! haha The bbq lunch was also yummy and we had it while sitting near a lake.. very scenic. The Milford Sound is a must - but if you have already seen the Fjords in Norway then this won't come close to that.. Milford Sound, I would consider, is just 10 of what Fjords you will see in Norway. The lazy seals were the highlight of Milford Sound for me!
BBQ Bus is the way to go visit Milford Sound. Very personal trip, the driver giving historical accounts of the area on the drive up... we did not hit a great day weather-wise rainy and foggy but my family enjoyed the trip and mentioned that it was nice that we weren't on the larger tourist buses since we made a couple stops along the way and then were right back on the road to Milford Sound. Driver even picked my family up and droppped us off across the street from where we were staying. Highly recommend!
Driver/guide was great at stopping at nice places to stretch/snack/take pictures along the way, food was home made and very tasty. It was a long trip, but a good balance of stories along the way and down time.
The views were absolutely gorgeous! The movie the tour guide played on the way back into Queenstown was really entertaining and hilarious. This tour is definitely a MUST!
Exceptionally well organized. Our guide and driver Marty was incredibly engaging. This tour provided exceptional value.
The Tour was an incredible experience full of enchantment and landscapes that I will never forget ! Its a little bit long for one day, but for sure its a MUST DO TOUR ! Recharge your baterries and be prepared for a full day of outside magic. Thanks Viator Team.
Excellent trip, Graham is a great guide, chef and driver, Gave excellent insight of the scenery and history. Will love to travel with him again if we are back.
We had a clear day and Milford Sound was amazing. Saw dolphins, penguins, and seals. The waterfalls were great. And, if the Captain says, You my get wet, - you should heed his warning. The bus ride over with Marty on the BBQ bus was very relaxing and well thought-out. Totally enjoyable experience.
We selected this from a plethora of available tours and hoped for the best,,, we got it fortunately. This is a small bus tour which was truly wonderful. The bus is able to visit spots coaches can't and is ini matey cosy and comfy.
Marty... The Owner/Driver was exceptional. Not only did he provide a service above and beyond that expected, his knowledge of conservation through past employment, of the area and attractions and commentary all round was outstanding. It was a pleasure to be onboard.
The cruise, well it is just simply a must to do in life, enough said. Our boat also was a smaller one than the huge commercial ones, again this is a bonus as it can get into the Waterfulls, and far more intimate and enjoyable for the passengers.
The BBQ lunch on this booking is terrific... Others looked in desperation as we indulged!
Fantastic day trip. Our driver was funny, informative and cooked a mean BBQ. His conservationist background meant we were given all kinds information that really made you appreciate the whole experience. A definite must do if you visit Queenstown. We had a car and could have done the drive on our own but doing it this way was stress free and so enjoyable.
Great trip. Small tour with more personal feel than the meg-buses. Very convenient hotel pick-up and dropped us off at another spot upon request. If you plan to tour Milford Sound while in Queenstown, I highly recommend this tour.
Unbelievable! The views and scenery were magnificent and we learned so much about New Zealand! I would highly recommend this journey!
This tour was just amazing. Our guide was very friendly, funny and extremely knowledgable. We loved how small the group was! Would 100% recommend :)
A must see if you are going to New Zealand. Our guide Nigel was wonderful and so informative. Would definitely do this tour again.
Words can't describe how beautiful this was. Nigel was great. I Highty recommend it.
Absolutely fantastic. Scenery amazing.
Long day trip from Queenstown, but oh so worth it.
Lovely BBQ lunch, Nigel our driver very informative and great fun.
Marty was absolutely phenomenal. He showed us some really cool sights and was a great ride along the way. He more than accommodated everyone's requests and we made frequent but not too many stops along the way. Others have already said this in previous reviews but taking the BBQ Bus helped provide a much more intimate experience for us. I had the opportunity to get to know the other amazing people in our group and some of us even hung out after we got back from the tour. Marty stopped at some really beautiful spots for photos and the boat ride was perfect - it felt full, but not overwhelming. We had ample space to walk around the boat to catch 360 views of Milford Sound. Also, unlike many/most other tour guides and companies, Marty didn't try to up sell us on anything. Try out the BBQ Bus - you won't regret it!
Nigel did a wonderful job providing fascinating insights on the trip. The small group tour allowed us to hike some trails rather than just following the herd on the larger coaches. Nigel prepared a delicious BBQ lunch with diverse meats and salads.
I would recommend to anyone who wants a thorough trip to Milford sound! Sooo good
