Great service starting with complimentary pick up from our motel in Te Anau. Next was a coach bus ride to Milford Sound. Brian, our bus driver was very friendly, informative and knowledgable about the area and gave us a great commentary along the bus journey. The staff on the catamaran were also very friendly and knowledgable as well. The sights... More

We booked via telephone. Very efficient service. Decided to include the bus trip from Te Anau to Milford and the marine observatory. Picked up at the prearranged time by driver called Reece. An outstanding ambassador for both Southern Discoveries and the Fiordland district. He was very professional, knowledgeable and for someone who has clearly completed the journey many hundreds of...

We were lucky enough to have a really beautiful day for this cruise. The lunch provided was fantastic, the tour guide was very informative and the views spectacular. The boat wasn't over crowded with tourists which is a huge plus!

Our motel made this booking for us and we were picked up promptly and dropped off at the end of the day. Our guide, Dave, was an excellent driver who has a vast knowledge of the area. He made lots of photo stops which was really appreciated even though it rained continuously. The boat was very clean and comfortable and... More

We went to Milford Sound with Go Milford today 16 April. Our driver was Reece, what a lovely man. Full of interesting information, friendly, personable but not over the top like so many tours we have been on where the guide talks all about himself and forgets just why they are there. Reece is fun, kind, knowledgeable and polite. The... More

We were lucky to have a sunny day and enjoyed a wonderful cruise. Breathtaking scenery. The cruise was very professionally run, all went smoothly and at a relaxed pace. The supplied picnic lunch was delicious - varied and generous. We enjoyed the time at the Underwater Discovery Centre. We also enjoyed the commentary.

We were very fortunate on the day of our tour that we had a completely cloudless sky. We were on a small boat so we were able to get our hair wet under the fairy falls and one of the bigger ones as well. Views of the sound were absolutely breath taking and although it was cold, it was one... More

We drove to Milford on our own and took the 1300 Nature Cruse. The boat used is the smallest inn the fleet and go some places the larger boats can't. We also did the optional stop at the Underwater Observatory. We had been told the cruise was fully booked but if so it didn't seem like it at all. We... More

We took the tour from our motel in Te Anau instead of driving a hire car. Driver was relaxed, informative and stopped at everything worth seeing. The scenery is outstanding which i would have missed if i had been driving. The Milford Sound Cruise was equally outstanding. I am normally sceptical about tours like this but this one is value...
