Milford Sound on the South Island of New Zealand is one of the country’s most spectacular sights. Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is a fiord, which is best described as a long, narrow inlet of sea, with steep sides gouged out by a glacier. If you’ve never visited a fiord before, Milford Sound will... More

This tour is great value, $99 for the 2 hour each way journey with interesting commentary, boat trip and pita wrap lunch. It's really not worth driving yourself, this way everyone can enjoy the spectacular scenery. We had many short stops for view points and short walks and the boat trip was a real highlight of our NZ holiday. John... More

We have booked the tour "Milford Sound Full-Day Tour from Queenstown" using viator.com. It was an awesome experience from start to finish. The tour company sent a taxi to pick us up from a very close place to where we stayed and at the end they dropped us to our holiday house by a taxi. The entire journey was so... More

We took the Jucy coach to Milford Sound and it was well worth the long bus ride. Our driver was informative and there were just the right amount of stops there and back. I'm glad that we didn't drive as the roads were very windy. Part of the road was closed due to a rockslide but was reopened in time... More

You will be in a small bus most of the time, but you'll definitely not get bored, because you will be amazed by the sights during the journey. The driver was Frank, he was very friendly, humorous and knowledgable. We went during the winter time, so we got to go through the old forest, empty canyon carved out by the... More

From the minute we were picked up to the minute we were dropped off the trip was great!! Coach driver was knowledgable and stopped at great areas of interest. Boat was modern and not overcrowded. Would recommend coaching in so you can take in the scenery on the road in (rivals the sounds themselves)

We opted for the eco tours tour to Milford Sound even though the person at the tourist center who helped us said the only difference was that ours included lunch and had a bit nicer bus. You can purchase lunch once yu get to Milford, and there was one stop mid way to have a snack and a drink, but... More

Picked up exactly on time. Driver Frank was very knowledgeable. Weather was bad but cleared up in the mountains where the scenery was superb. Especially loved the Keas in the alpine carparks. Milford cruise was very nice but enjoyed the drive in more. Great value for $99 and a whole days entertainment. A must do when visiting the south island.

Spent a whole day on a bus being constantly told we were running behind time and how lucky we were that the roads were open but not enough time to stop at all locations they would normally stop at for views and photos. Got there half hour early. Captain of boat sounded incredibly bored. Buffet lunch was nice on board.... More

Our driver was excellent, giving us great information along the long drive. The scenery along the way is the most beautiful I have ever seen with snow covered mountains, beautiful lakes, and rolling green hills. This tour stops many times for restroom breaks and even for photo opportunites. The roads have many curves and it very nice to have someone... More
