Your journey from Queenstown takes you along the edge of Lake Wakatipu beneath the rugged Remarkables to Te Anau for a morning tea break (own expense). You'll then enter the Fiordland National Park, pausing at the Mirror Lakes before passing through the Hollyford Valley. The road then climbs to enter the Homer Tunnel, emerging above the CleddauValley before descending to Milford Sound.

Carved by a massive glacier in the last ice age, Milford Sound is one of the most treasured regions of the World Heritage Fiordland National Park. The best way to check out the heart-stopping, pristine scenery, towering peaks, waterfalls and marine and bird life is aboard this Milford Sound cruise. While cruising, you'll enjoy a full commentary about the rich history and environment of Milford Sound.

Our trip to Milford Sound was on a Great Sights coach with tour guide and bus driver Brian. Though the tour took up the entire day, the scenery and sights from Queenstown to Milford Sound were beautiful and kept us captivated! Rain forests, alpine streams, blue-hued lakes, snow-capped mountains were plentiful. Milford Sound with its canyons, rain forests, and numerous waterfalls was breathtaking. Brian was very knowledgeable and kept us well-informed throughout the tour.

Some of the most beautiful scenery you'll ever see. The tour was well-operated and our guide was extremely friendly and kept us on schedule. The tour bus also had wifi that worked well except when we got deeper into the Fiordland territory. All in all a must do tour when you're in Queenstown.
