Our group of 6 people experienced the Milford Sound Coach Tour & Lunch Cruise from Queenstown. This journey was a 12.5 hour journey, which we all enjoyed our journey by bus coach and our driver who had a lot of knowledge providing information about the scenery areas while traveling to the Milford Sounds. The two hour boat cruise was an enjoyable experience to explore the Milford Sounds. Traveling by boat cruise, to capture the beautiful scenery views of the lake, water falls, sea lions and dolphin's. I would recommend this day trip to everyone, to book the Milford sound Coach tour & Lunch Cruise from Queenstown. Because you can sit back and relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery views while traveling. It is a long day journey to travel, if you drive yourself there to Milford Sound.

In my opinion this is a "must do" experience when visiting Queenstown. The whole package including pick up from our hotel to our drop off was seamless. The staff at the check in and especially our pilot Dean were helpful and very personable. The flight to Milford is a truly unique experience. Flying between mountain ranges and up beautiful and majestic valleys is a lifetime experience. The cruise on the Milford is also memorable. We are experienced boaties however this cruise showed us something a little different about our amazing coastline. The skipper was very informative without being obtrusive and gave us some amazing experiences. I fully recommend this tour. It was very good value for money.

Wonderful day out, great food and wine. For a beer drinker , it was great to try all the different wines and learn something new. Gary our guide is a lovely person and so knowledgeable himself. he made the day extra special with his friendly manner.

Despite having to wear masks in the bus, the day was awesome. Gary was really interesting and went to extra mile. There were only three of us, so thank you for letting the tour go ahead anyway. Great choice of vineyards. A wonderful day.

We had an amazing flight and cruise with Milford Air. Our pilot Alex was so knowledgeable and friendly. He was a wonderful guide and we had spectacular views from both the plane and the boat. Would highly highly recommend.
