Amazing tour!

We were three international students from Canada and Norway and it was wonderful. Fantastic tour, weather was gorgeous so the drive from Te Anau was amazing, stopped at lots of amazing places and had the chance to get photographs and walk around! The cruise was absolutely fantastic, we sailed under two waterfalls and if you’re on the deck you get a nice shower. We also saw penguins, fur seals and dolphins! Everything was timely and the staff were lovely, complimentary hot drinks were the icing on the cake

Wonderful Experience

The bus from Te Anau promptly picked us up on time and Frank our bus driver was funny, informative, interesting and lovely. The trip through the Fiordland National Park was awe inspiring and Frank stopped at interesting places along the way for photo opportunities and to inform us of the areas history. Our boat was extremely comfortable and spacious and was not as crowded as the other boat I saw. Our Captain's running commentary was very informative and we we're lucky enough to see some Bottle nose dolphins swimming at the front of our boat. On the bus trip back to Te Anau, Frank stopped at a couple more places and tried to find us some Kea's but no such luck and he delivered us safely back to our pickup points in Te Anau. Awesome experience - thank you!

Great Experience!

Had an awesome day on this tour. The coach picked us up from our hotel which was very convenient. There were a lot of stops along the way for pictures and leg-stretches. The driver was a great host, provided a lot of in-depth information about the surroundings. Upon reaching Milford Sound, we had our complimentary lunch and boarded the cruise. It was a beautiful vessel, very large and spacious with 3 levels for a wide range of view. Very comfortable. Also had the chance to spot some seals and encounter multiple waterfalls all the while being provided with associated commentary! (Would definitely suggest wearing a raincoat, if you want to have a close-up encounter with the waterfalls) After the cruise, back on the coach. Followed again by some amazing commentary from the driver till we were dropped back at our hotel in Te Anau. Absolutely amazing experience. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing Day

Did the Milford Sound bus tour and cruise in August, absolutely amazing day! Simon, our bus tour operator was fantastic. A Te Anau local, he had so much knowledge and passion for region, the flora and fauna, wildlife conservation and all the interesting politics surrounding conservation. Top bloke with lots of funny stories, felt like you were hanging out with a friend. During the bus trip we stopped at many beautiful spots to take photos, these spots including the chasm waterfall were just as impressive as Milford Sound. During the cruise we were lucky enough to see dolphins and seals! Highly recommend.
