Take the hassle out of driving to Milford Sound and join a guided coach tour from Queenstown. Sit back, relax and enjoy magnificent scenery and informative commentary. Your experienced local coach driver will show you the best views along the Milford Road and connect you seamlessly with a 2-hour nature cruise. Travel in a spacious coach with USB charging ports. Marvel at the native rainforest, spectacular waterfalls and glacial lakes. Pause briefly in Te Anau before continuing along the spectacular alpine Milford Road. Admire incredible views at Eglinton Valley, Mirror Lakes, Knobbs Flat or Monkey Creek and pose for photos. Be wowed by the glaciar-carved Milford Sound as you approach the visitor terminal. Seize your cruise and lunch passes from the driver who’ll help you find your cruise departure gate.  Climb aboard a purpose-built catamaran for a nature cruise along the fiord’s deep blue waters. Savor a freshly prepared picnic lunch. Marvel at the impressive natural landscape and keep a lookout for native wildlife like dolphins, seals and penguins. Be fascinated by live commentary from your skipper in the open wheelhouse. Get within touching distance of impressive glaciar-carved rock walls and feel the full force of the powerful 15,000-year-old Stirling Falls on your face. Awed and satisfied, rejoin your driver for the scenic return journey to Queenstown.

What people are saying about Fiordland

Shallindra (excuse my spelling) was our guide and I would like to say this man deserves a promotion, a pay rise and at the very least employee of the month. Incredibly hospitable and very in touch with his passengers needs. I was a solo traveller and he ensured I still had photos taken at all of the scenic pictures spots. He was so attentive when a child on board felt unwell and even shared some cough sweets to someone with a bad throat. His humour was delightful, knowledge of the area very insightful, we all learnt lots and the actual trip itself was smooth, effortless and super easy. Such a relief for a solo traveller. Thank you Shallindrah

The tour guide was very informative and humours which made the whole trip very engaging. He went above and beyond to make sure he provided us with as much information as possible by doing his own research and quizzing us with fun facts and riddles.

Breathtaking experience… loved so much the scenic views. Our driver/host, Brad, is so brilliant and patient. Highly recommended and must be included in the itinerary when visiting Queenstown!

Our tour guide was awesome and make the whole experience beautiful

Bus service and guide are excellent, so is the cruise.
