Outstanding experience with VIP

I am really grateful that the tour was set up even there was only 2 guests on the van. That was a beautiful sunny day when we were in Milford Sound, so lucky. The sceneries with waterfalls, mountains, creeks, and the snow left me a deep impression, so as the excellent introduction and guidance given by our tour guide Justine. The cruise started early enough so there was not crowded at all in the ship. Strongly recommended. Thank you!

A+ Experience!

We were picked up from our accomodation by Justin our tour guide in a luxury comfortable van. Justin gave great commentary along the way, he was a real book of knowledge when we asked various things. Awesome to have a guide that really knows his stuff. We were blown away when Justin told us how many trips he had done into Milford. We can clearly see he is very passionate about his job as for the amount trips he has already done, his commentary was full of life and enjoyable. We had a few stops along the way, taking in sites that we probably wouldn't of done if we had gone in ourselves. Justin showed us some real hidden treasures that the kids enjoyed exploring. Milford Sound was wet but this created an even more beautiful experience. The endless waterfalls were admirable and we felt privledged to be able to witness so much beauty. The boat cruise was fabulous the experience of getting wet under a waterfall and hearing the laughter and smiles from my family and fellow passageners is unforgettable. The buffet lunch was amazing, a real treat to have so many yummy options to choose from and enjoy while cruising the water. We had a best experience, we highly recommend VIP Milford. Our daughter suffers terribly from travel sickness, so we were concerned about traveling in and out of Milford and were well prepared in case. I had told Justin about this upon being picked up and he made sure we were in the front so she could have a clear view of the road. Well we made it there and back with zero sickness first time ever! I put this down to Justins driving, we felt very safe on what can be such a dangerous road. Big thanks to Justin and the team at VIP Milford, a truly unforgettable experience indeed.

Hi Leevonne Wow what a fabulous review! Thank you so much. Justin is an excellent and experienced driver/guide and loves sharing his local knowledge with our amazing guests. We try our best to make sure everyone has an amazing experience and it sounds like you have, which we are supremely happy about. We don't think there is ever a bad day in Milford Sound and as you say the waterfalls are spectacular when it is raining. Thank you again. Kind regards VIP Milford Team :)

Amazing experience

Great host, comfortable bus trip, beautiful scenery and that all before you even get to the boat. Once on the Real Journeys cruise the Milford Sounds scenic cruise was everything we could have dreamed of. Even with rain and wind was such a breathtaking trip. Loved every moment. Would go back again and again. A must do for visitors and locals like. A+++++ ❤️
