We had a great time visiting Milford. Our tour guide was great. The only bad thing was the weather that day caused the flights out of Milford to be canceled, but the boat tour of the sound and the stops that we made on the way to Milford more than made up for this.

This involved an early start and a long coach drive, but the stunning views and cruise on Milford Sound made up for this. We had an excellent buffet lunch on board the Pride of Milford. Due to low clouds at Queenstown, we were unable to fly back and returned by coach, but this did not spoil the enjoyment of the day. The coach driver was excellent, stopping at various locations so that we could take photographs.

Awesome trip. The flight back was cancelled due to high winds, which was unseen BUT our excellent drive on the day sorted out for us to take the helicopter ride instead. This was a bonus as we landed on a glacier making this great trip even more memorable. Overall a must do and if you can take the flight option - DO!

An early start and long coach journey from Queenstown to Milford Sound. However, it was worth the trip for the spectacular scenery and cruise. We were even lucky enough to have dolphins follow the boat for some of the way. The bento box lunch was excellent good quality and plentiful and it avoided having to queue for the buffet food as it was at our table when we arrived on board. The only disappointment was the cancellation of the 40 minute flight back due to poor visibility no rain or snow but simply low cloud. The 4 hour return coach trip was comfortable but nothing exciting. We were offered a helicopter trip back but this was a lot more expensive. The refund for the flight portion of the trip was received quickly and without hassle.
Fantastic trip through a very beautiful area of the South Island of New Zealand. Bus driver was on time picking up from hotel and very knowledgeable in telling us what we were seeing on our 4 hours ride. We were lucky to have a perfect weather day! Lunch on the boat in Milford Sound was a bit of a disappointment in terms of food quality. Scenic flight and pilot were tremendous pilot was great about pointing out different things we were seeing. All in all a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend.
Beautiful sights! It took forever to get there but was well worth the trip. Most beautiful place in New Zealand was Milford Sound. The plane or helicopter ride back is so worth it! You get great aerial views of the majestic beauty that is NZ! Also, you get home so much faster than that long bus ride. I would recommend!
Couch driver was a mine of information and pleny of stops
Great weather for the cruise, food on arrival prior to departing, well organised
Delayed scenic flight back, so had to hang around for a bit. Planes are small so photo oppertunities were somewhat limited, which if anything is a slight grumble.
That said, spectacular scenery throughout and we had a superb day
Weather hindered our flight, so I can't give a full review. However, stagecoach was fairly comfortable with nice windowing. Stops along the way were scenic and brisk. Cruise showed the highlights of the sound.
The coach journey and the boat trip were both fine and the beautiful weather made the day in the Fjord. What completely spoiled the day was that after getting off the boat, and thus with only fifteen minutes notice, our scenic flight back to Queenstown, which we had really been looking forward to, was cancelled. Considering that the weather was perfect, and that other plane companies were flying back to Queenstown, this was disappointing and unacceptably poor. It ruined our day.
