Really enjoyed this 12hour round trip. Spectacular scenery practically all the way and a terrific pay off with the boat cruise on Milford Sound. Driver Paulie was a mine of information and managed the itinerary like clockwork with a fine selection of stop offs.

The bus trip was very good. Our driver, Ewan Tosh was engaging, very knowledgeable and a good story teller. Ewan was very friendly and introduced himself to every passenger and made the trip enjoyable.

I took the AwesomeNZ bus to Milford Sound with my fellow cyclists to ride back. Paulie and Johnnie - thank you for the great help without which my one week cycling trip would have ended in 1-2 days. Fantastic job ! See you next time.
