The tour is rushed and it didnt help that the bus driver/tour guide was not nice to us. He was inconsiderate.

The cruise to Milford Sound was great but the driver/tour guide of the bus was inconsiderate. The trip was rushed but we understand the tight schedule but he made the experience uncomfortable with his unplesant attitude.

The route and the sites were wonderful, and lasted longer than I expected. It rained for part of the trip, but there's plenty of indoor seating. There are various levels and platforms to enjoy this tour.

Milford Sound is absolutely gorgeous! We had a great guide with terrific jokes – thanks Deano! Just note that it is quite a long bus ride from Queenstown to Milford Sound.

The drive and boat trip were unforgettable; hundreds of waterfalls. Of course it was raining, but that made all the waterfalls possible. So go rain or shine.

Fabulous trip. Take a jacket, it can be cold even in summer. Only issue, there is only one road in and one road out. There was an accident in the tunnel so our tour couldn’t get out. We opted for the flight back to Queenstown. Best option! I didn’t find our tour guide Deano knowledgeable but when we were stranded at Milford Sound, he was so experienced and knew what to do.

The cruise was nice. Great food was available. The narrator did a good job -- as we were passing particular areas of interest, he provided a good description. We learned much!

Free taxi brought us to meeting point from hotel. Easy check in process. Friendly, kind, and safe tour bus driver. Comfortable bus-don’t forget to pack a lunch to save some $$! Boat allowed for indoor/outdoor experience per customer preference-but go outside! And dress for wind/cold on the water.
