The driver Barry was Fantastic - Real Journeys, so helpful and informative. He clearly knows his trade and filled the long journey up with interesting information. The day is long if you take the coach both ways so I recommend the scenic flight back. More expensive but well worth it.

This was an incredible journey through Milford... stunning landscape, stunning waterfalls that they get you close into. They laughingly told us that if the waterfall sprays on you... you walk away looking fifteen years younger. The staff aboard are lovely, attentive and passionate about their job. It's an experience you simply must take. Words are not suffice to elaborate on how magnificent Milford truly is.

This is a long day out as Milford Sound is approx 180 miles by road from Queenstown, so if you do not like sitting in a coach this may not be the excursion for you. Travel time is over 4 hours. There are regular stops on the way to view other things and the loos! So the outward journey is broken down into smaller segments, though the return journey had only one stop. There are great mountain views throughout the journey.

This trip is well worth the cost and Milford Sound does not disappoint, and if you are driving a car around NZ then this is a relaxing day off for the car driver. As a final comment if you have come half way around the world it would be a shame to miss Milford Sound.
