based on 5 reviews

the double rows of sky windows are awesome! The cruise went underneath the waterfalls and we saw some seals and dolphins! Everything’s pretty smooth and easy, we had a very good time!

A long day but so, so worth it. Gill was a great guide. Learned so much along the way. A must do for kiwis - especially while the overseas tourists are away and there's more space.

The bus ride is long with some commentary, however the long drive was worth it! Our 10yr was board for part of the time, so this maybe best for groups without kids.

Long day but very comfortable bus, loved the glass roof. Excellent commentary from Che the driver, lots of photo stops. And, of course, Milford Sound.

A long long day, but really well worth it. Amazing scenery
