An incredible day providing breathtaking views of hills, sheep, mountains and rivers. The cruise on Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea added waterfalls, rainbows, awsome rock formations and seals. It was a day to remember and comes highly recommended.Reviewed by: Karen K, USA, November 2013
Great trip - albeit a long bus trip to get there. The driver was very knowledgeable. We brought our own lunch for the cruise, but the buffet smelt good (no idea if it was actually nice). You can buy snacks, drinks and tea/coffee on board.
If you suffer motion sickness, you'll need something for the bus trip - it's a good 3 hours of windy roads in each direction. Even with multiple stops, this can be hard going.
Apart from that, great day out!
A must see even on a cloudy dayReviewed by: Joseph J, March 2013
It was raining on way which was good as when there were lots of waterfalls on the journey and also when we got to Milford Sound. There were lots of photo stops so a chance to stretch your legs very frequently. We came back by Helicopter and this was amazing. The Helicopter isn't cheap but it's an experience you'll never forget - it will also reduce the 4-5 hour drive to 45 minutes! The pilot took us up to 9,000 feet between the clouds and the mountains (which was a bit scary) and landed on one of the highest peaks where we had our photo taken beside the helicopter. The views coming back to Queenstown are fabulous.Reviewed by: Colin W, January 2013
Spectacular Landscapes.Reviewed by: Usman S, January 2013
We reaLly loved the Milford sound trip. from the moment we were met by our bus driver we knew we were in for an interesting journey. He was very knowledgable and added lots of great photo opportunities to match the fab scenery.
The boat trip portion of the tour was spectacular.
It was a great trip.Beautiful scenery and plenty of stops for photos to break the trip up.Milford sound was amazing.Our guide(Brian) was fabulous.He was friendly and knowledgeable.Just fantastic.Reviewed by: SAMANTHA C, July 2012
Very long long bus ride, 4.5 hours per way.. the scenery was awesome though and probably worth it on they way there as they do a lot of photo stops at very nice places.. but the return journey was just a 4.5hr dash back to queenstown..
Would be better to do the tour from te anau which is only 2hr away.. or take the helicopter/plane ride back to queenstown but needs minimum numbers and quite expensive
The trip to Milford Sound from Queenstown was a long one, but there were several stops along the way to see some beautiful sights. The boat ride on Milford Sound was stunning, and the weather cooperated with beautiful, blue skies. A highlight (of many we experienced) on our NZ holiday.Reviewed by: Albert B, January 2012
Excelent, from the begining to the end everything was well organized and perfect, with a lot of opportunities to take pictures.Reviewed by: Sapetti, Spain, January 2012
