What a great day. Chris the driver was excellent. Stopped en route at great places to take pictures.and gave an excellent commentary on history and local facts.

Smaller bus able to stop more frequently for photo ops also access an area that a large coach cannot. Loved the commentary, very informative without being excessive or patronising. Fab cruise as always. Perfect timing for pick up and drop off. A friendly more intimate way to do Milford.Reviewed by: JOHN G, August 2012
This trip was amazing from start to finish. The Bus driver was so friendly, the lunch was fantastic, heaps of stops to check out the beautiful scenery. Loved it!!Reviewed by: Kim S, April 2012
What a great day, Chris our driver was informative, knowledgeable and funny, everything you need in a driver. Oh and did I mention he is a great chef, the BBQ was delicious, even the possum snags, yeh good one Chris. A big day for Chris, but he made our day memorable. Being on a smaller bus meant we stopped at places the coaches couldn't, which meant more photo opportunities, If you get the chance,do it !Reviewed by: Ross T M, March 2012
This has to be the best milford sound daytrip we found. the guide/driver was very polite and friendly, and was always to keen to take pictures for you. there was only 5 of us in the minibus so had plenty of room and got to move alot faster than a traditional large coach tour.
the places we stopped along the way for a walk or pictures was brilliant and the bbq lunch was beautiful (even by aussie standards!)the cruise itself was ok, we had really bad weather unfortunetly but was very accomodating none the less.. we had our own prebooked table and free tea/coffee for the cruise. i would thouroughly recommend this tour for any milford sound trip

This was a really great day out. The bus driver Nigel was very informative with his narrative on local fauna and flora which certainly made the bus trip interesting. Noriko was welcoming and friendly. Gorgeous scenery with plenty of stops for photos. Cruising up Milford Sound was amazing... it is certainly an untouched area. I'd recommend this to anyone.Reviewed by: Liane M, November 2010
