Best daytrip

This day trip was the best we did so far. Compared to all the others we had a very small bus, we had so many stops on the way up to milford sound and the longest cruise with 2 hours ! The best you can book for milford Sound!

Excellent day out

This is the way to see Milford Sound from Te Anau. Carlyn, our driver/guide, stopped at interesting and beautiful places we might have missed if driving ourselves. The commentary by Carlyn and his pre-recorded fellow guide Mike was informative and amusing. Our journey out included a stop for morning tea with scones at quirky Gunn's Camp. The cruise went the whole length of Milford Sound and gave us close encounters with fur seals and waterfalls. A temporary closure of the Homer Tunnel caused by a car fire delayed our return by nearly three hours. Carlyn still offered to make the stops he had planned but by that time we were all ready to get back. Overall a fantastic day out with a terrific driver/guide.

Outstanding experience

A great day trip to Milford Sound was made perfect by Ray and his company - small buses, excellent commentary from someone who has lived in the area for many year and great attention to detail (including taking us on to the boat to ensure we got the best seats) - I wouldn't go with anyone else.

Magnificent day to Milford Sound

We had a magnificent tour to Milford Sound. Our busdriver/host was very enthousiastic and had a lot to tell about the nature, history and day-to-day life in the Fjordland National Park. He took all the necessary time to explain what we were seeing and took the effort of showing additional things like flowers on the roadside. The main goal of the tour wad off course Milford Sound. We went on a small boat, Mitre Peak, with one upper deck and very good viewing points from all seats on the boat. The captaon took the boat as close as possible to the cliffs. At one point we could even touch them. Also we were right under 1 waterfall getting soaked if you were stabding outside. We got good and interesting explanation from the captain and the tourguide on board. All in all a beautifull and exciting day.
