    Brilliant

    It was o fantastic experience. A long drive with plenty of stumps. It was snowing, we saw keas and our driver Ngaire was a blessing. Her knowledge and sense of humour much appreciated. Her driving was amazing. The views were awe inspiring. I love my country and I love Go Orange

    Incredible!!

    If you have a day to spare, you won’t regret spending it driving to Milford Sound (Fiord) and cruising the Fiord. It was the most stunning scenery we’ve ever seen, we spent most of the day with our mouths open in awe. The mountains and waterfalls was just fantastic. Our bus driver was fantastic, funny and very knowledgeable. The cruise itself was very nice too with good seating, a good cafe with two levels and plenty of space on deck.

    A fun day out!

    So glad we chose to delay the hiring of our car and do the coach & cruise option over self-drive! Our driver was excellent & had plenty of interesting stories & facts on the way down, and then we relaxed with a DVD for the last part of the trip back. Its a really long drive from Queenstown so enjoying the journey to Milford as well as the destination is important! The photo stops were also pretty stunning. Milford Sound itself is really beautiful & we particularly enjoyed going under the waterfalls. Would have preferred a seat on the top floor of the boat as they looked super comfy but we were too slow - ours was still quite good though as the boat was nice & modern. I took away a star as we didn't have great weather and we were excited to try the special brew, but the bar had no beer left!

    Milford Sound

    Milford Sound was great. Unfortunately the ship ran out of most food at the beginning of the trip, so probably best to bring lunch with you.

    Trip was canceled too late

    Our pick up time was scheduled at 6:40am. We left our Airbnb in Wanaka at 4:30 in the morning to be there on time. We were there at 6:15 because we were advised to be there 20mins before that. We waited there out in the cold for 50 minutes until around 7:05 when a Go Orange personnel arrived and informed us that the road to Milford Sound was closed so they had to cancel. She was in a hurry because she said she needed to inform other joiners too. She did not mention any back up plan. A lot of us in the group have tight schedules and we felt like Go Orange could have endorsed us to another tour operator. Fortunately, there was another bus across the street who allowed us to join their tour to Milford Sound. The driver said roads were closed because of avalanche clean-up which if very common but they open at around mid-day. Upon checking my email, I found out that they sent the cancelation notice at around 8:00am which is already too late. If we did not find a bus who allowed us to hop on, we could not have gone to Milford Sound because we were scheduled to leave the day after. We visited their office when we arrived from the tour to request for refund but the office was closed. Tried sending an email and still waiting for their reply. I hope the refund process is not as disappointing.
