If you are going to Milford sound plan it with trips and tramps. They are a family run tour operator managed by Steve and his wife. They are abolsutely WONDERFUL. It is a small 10 - 12 seater van that picks you up from the hotel and drives to Milford. They take time to stop by all the scenic views... More

There is nothing like Milford Sound! I visited Norwegian fjords before, but Milford Sound was a blast! Not only because of the views around but also the clarity of water, wild animals around and the view of the ocean in the middle of the cruise. It is very hard to describe so I urge you to visit this place next... More

The drive from Te Anau to Milford Sound is one that you should experience it yourself. Sceneries were fantastic. The cruise has a couple of excellent experiences, e.g. going close to the waterfall and the strong winds. But the duration of the cruise can be a little long, and if water is rough, the ride can be a little uncomfortable... More

This is a once in a life time Tour of the sound. Highly recommended. Worth every penny. Go on the smaller boats a lot better value.

I would highly recommend that you take a flight to Milford and hold your breath when they descend using the valleys - and then take off over the ocean - it was an amazing experience and if you are on a time budget then flying will get you to see a lot more in a short about of time. If... More

More than I expected. We took one of the local boat tours and I could not believe the landscape and calm waters.

This was the first place in new zealand i saw. It was morning and the mountains shrouded in low cloud. This place felt so mysterious & left me with goosebumps of how beautiful nature is when humans don't ruin it!

Legend has it that Milford Sound was shaped after all of the fiords, by which time the Gods had perfected their craft. Hence Milford Sound is their most beautiful creation. I will confess that I haven't seen all of the other fiords, but if there is a more beautiful one, I'll drop everything in a jiffy on order to see... More

This really ought to be one of the seven wonders of the world because it really is quite breathtaking! We took a 2 hour cruise with buffet lunch included & we spent the whole time just marvelling at what we were seeing - mountains, cliffs, rocks, wildlife, waterfalls & non-stop torrential rain! Ironically this was the 2nd time I'd visited... More
