Milford Sound Extraordinaire Tour Including Picnic Lunch Ex Te Anau

Maximise your Fiordland and Milford Sound experience in an unhurried atmosphere in our comfortable small coaches

Explore the road to Milford Sound with up to 17 scenic stops along the way concluding with an amazing cruise with towering mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

Our "Extraordinaire" tour is the most comprehensive tour which includes magnificent views of the mountains beyond New Zealand's largest lake, three glacier carved valleys and photo stops in abundance.

Your day is highlighted with a cruise on Milford Sound on a cruise boat that limits numbers to less than 75 passengers. You will be up close to wildlife and have the chance to see dolphins, seals, albatrosses and the very rare Fiordland Crested Penguin (in season). Your cruise boat will actually carefully maneuver under at least two waterfalls enabling you to get wet with pure clean glacier water.

We as "Fiordland Tours" pride ourselves with providing an elite personal service during your day tour to Milford Sound. Our local guides will share their experiences and knowledge as we travel through awe inspiring scenery. Interaction with them is always invited, and question along the way

makes for an interesting and fun time.

Whilst we always plan our itinerary at the start of the day, we pride ourselves in the flexibility of changing the order of stops if inclement weather prevails.

Our guides are fully trained on all camera/phone devices, and will make sure to end up with a perfect album of memorable images of you day with us.

Best Milford Sound Tour Ever!

I did this tour with my elderly Mum and we both had such a great time. Lots of photo stops along the way, yummy date scones for morning tea and very knowledgeable, entertaining guide. I felt like they really cared about giving their guests good memories. Highly recommend ?

Fantastic trip!

Had a great day out in a beautiful part of our country. The only down side was that we were not given the lunch that was included with this tour.

Thank you for your review of our tour to Milford Sound. My apologies for the lack of lunches. My mistake. If you are ever back down this way please contact me direct and I will offer you a voucher for a free meal at one of the restaurants here in Te Anau Cheers Ray Owner Fiordland Tours

Thoughtful and knowledgeable guide

We had an intimate group of 16 tour mates and it was an absolutely wet and cold day. Not surprising as it rains 200 days in Te Anau, however, our thoughtful guide Jonathan has made our trip relatively enjoyable. He made some timing adjustments so that we do not meet groups from Queenstown and thus have a less crowded cruise journey. Umbrellas were provided for the stopovers. Lunch, scones & hot drinks provided was delicious and timely. Throughout the car ride, Jonathan shared many interesting information about Fiordland and answered any questions posted to him with good humour.

Great tour, lovely host!

My sister and I really enjoyed the tour. Jamie was a great host with lots of knowledge and was very good with stopping at cool spots along the way. We really enjoyed the food and drink provided too. Would recommend going in a smaller tour versus a big tour, you get a lot more out of it. Thank you Fiordland tours 🙏
