Enjoy a great value, small personalised tour in a modern 8 seat mini bus to spectacular Milford Sound that also includes a full Scenic Cruise and tasty BBQ lunch inside the boundaries of the beautiful Fiordland National Park. Tour duration: Ex/To Te Anau 9:45am - 5:45pm Te Anau pick up and drop off - 'Kiwi Country' on Miro Street. Tour includes: The Road Trip. Sit back and relax in our comfortable, modern coach and take in the experience. The beauty of this trip to Milford Sound is that around every corner is something new to wonder at. With our smaller coaches, we are able to access a wide range of areas for photo opportunities. BBQ Lunch in the world famous Fiordland National Park, we break for the BBQ lunch. While we prepare your tasty lunch, take a short walk and breathe in the fresh alpine air. Cruise at Milford Sound, we link up with a spectacular scenic cruise, where the wonders of the area will unfold. The BBQ Bus links up with the 2pm Scenic Cruise operated by Real Journeys. This is an off peak time that is less crowded. Not only is BBQ Bus a great experience but it's also great value - so join us for a "Day to Remember!"

Nigel our driver is a start. We had a pleasant trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound. Being a small tour has too many advantages: Nigel memorised all our names and kept all entreteined. Views are amazing. Definitely an unforgetable trip.
