“Great day!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We had a wonderful time for the whole day. The minibus picking up from the caravan park was great,the knowledge of te driver was outstanding and the cruise was amazing! We had a wonderful clear day on Milford Sound and the scenery was just stunning, words cannot describe the beauty. The smorgasboard on the cruise was way beyond expectactions. Just a great day!

“Go Milford with Bruce”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

What a magical day discovering Milford Sound, Bruce our driver picked us up and straight away made our children 2 boys aged 10 & 11 feel welcome. We decided to leave our camper van in the Top 10 Holiday park at Te Anau , this was a good decision, both my husband and I could relax and enjoy the views and experience Bruce's wealth of knowledge of the area plus enjoy a laugh or two. The boat trip once at Milford was fun and the lunch couldn't be faulted. The discovery centre is well worth the visit. Our family really enjoyed the day with ample opportunity to take photos of this amazing landscape to add to our holiday memories. Bruce also recommended the Ata Whenua Shadowland movie at the cinema which was the perfect way to end the day and enjoy a quiet drink. Big ups to Go Milford especially Bruce!!!

“Go kayaking!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We decided to do the cruise/kayak combo with Southern Discoveries and it was a highlight of our trip. We were lucky enough to be part of a very small kayak group with a lovely guide. We were able to get within meters of rare crested Fiordland penguins, something most tourists don't get to see. Simply wonderful!

“Go Milford Bus Trip/Cruise”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Asked at our motel the best trip to Milford Sounds. Advised Go Milford. Picked up at our Motel by Bruce, 2 other stops and then on our way. Plenty of stops along the way. Lots of jokes and laughs. Cruise was awesome. I'm not a boat person but loved it. Weather was shocking, but because of the rain we got to see the stunning waterfalls. Great value for money and would most definitely recommend. Oh and look out for those square trees.........Bruce will show you.
