A must do experience!

If you're in the area you absolutely must take a trip to Milford Sound for some amazing natural beauty. Our tour provider was lovely, we took the coach and boat tour and it was so nice to kick our feet up and enjoy the scenery. The bus stops frequently on the road to the Milford Sound, so there is plenty of time to see the sights along the way! The boat was very comfortable, you can buy food on board too - so if you forget your lunch or don't opt for the provided lunch option you won't go hungry:)

Excellent Amazing Incredible Special Breathtaking

These were the 5 words each of our family members chose to describe our experience. From our fab, informative and humorous driver to the glass roofed coach, we loved every part of the drive into Milford and all of the stops along the way. Milford Sound and our scenic cruise was one of the best experiences we have ever done as a family so thank you so so much From the Longworth family

Absolutely recommend!

Great tour, excellent guides. The team makes you feel very welcomed and shows great pride in their work. Definitely worth taking the tour instead of driving as you get to enjoy the scenery. Boat trip was lovely as well. Very comfortable and great food.
