What people are saying about Milford Sound

Pick up was on time and everything went smoothly. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip. The other passengers were friendly and Andy, the driver/ host was top class. His friendly commentary ensured a good day. Small numbers made the trip even better as we felt we had a personal guide. A long day but worth it in every way and would certainly recommend using a commercial operator to do this trip from Queenstown and would certainly recommend this company.

The activity was very professionally run. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The Milford Sounds themselves were stunning. I would highly recommend this experience!
