Great Day on Milford Sound

Great experience, was nice being apart of a small group. Trip was great, the buffet lunch was ok, tour guide/driver Chris was very personable and was very knowledgeable of the area. The day is long leaving from Queenstown, is to be expected and if you want to spend the money can upgrade to a flight home instead. Would highly recommend.

Bucket list ticked off

simply stunning. Its a very loooong day. Mark was a great driver/tour guide with a lot of knowledge and great personality. The bus was only about an 18 seater, which I would recommend doing rather than a huge coach/bus - its more personal and intimate and very comfortable. The cruise was beautiful - helped by the great weather. However, don't except a feast for lunch on the boat - very average and not much to choose from. Overall a great day and something to tick off the bucket list.

Awesome day

This day could not have been better. Wonderful weather, favulous tour guide, small group size, good information on the boat, and good barbeque. The day ended with travellers being stuck at Milford Sound because of a car on fire in the tunnel, but Altitude arranged for pur group to be flown out, and a driver was waiting at the other end to take us to our hotel. It doesn't get any better than that for five star service. Hands down, this will be a memorable experience and well worth the money!!!!!

Thank you for leaving a great review Robert! A similar incident in the past resulted in the tunnel being closed for 2 days and we didn't want anyone's travel plans disrupted or for anyone to be stranded in Milford overnight so we didn't hesitate in arrange flights back to Queenstown. We're really happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and the disruption actually added to the experience! Thanks again, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your time in NZ!

Excellent day trip

My family of 2 adults and 2 kids (aged 7 and 11) loved our day trip to Milford Sound. Our guide was fantastic keeping us entertained throughout the long drive, with stories, facts and interesting photo opportunities of the beautiful landscape. The cruise and lunch was also very enjoyable, with commentary on key sights in the Sound. We had a great day. I highly recommend this tour.
