Full description

In the heart of Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is known as one of New Zealand’s top scenic attractions. On this day tour from Queenstown, jump on board an air-conditioned coach and be entertained with commentary from your driver/guide.

After passing through the 1.2-kilometer-long Homer Tunnel, descend into Milford Sound. Here jump on board a boat to cruise along the fjord. Take in the famous sights, like the uniquely-shaped Mitre Peak and the glacier-scarred rock. Keep an eye out for marine life like dolphins, seals, and penguins too. The fjord is dotted with waterfalls that tumble through the valleys and crash into the sound far below, making the scenery in Milford Sound spectacular, rain or shine.

Definitely recommended. Trip doesn’t feel long because the tour guide Paul does a great job of keeping us entertained and informed about the surrounding areas! Very modern and clean bus. Picnic lunch is great. You see a lot of nice places esp in the Fiordland national park. Plenty of opportunities for photos. The Milford sound cruise is top notch. Well worth it.

An amazing trip with the best Guide! Funny and Quirky was a great time! Super fun and informative! Plenty of stops to overcome tiredness the bus (from someone who has motion sickness) Alongside more than enough time to enjoy the views in the hotspots and take photos and just take in the nature and scene!

Whatever the weather, you must go. It was windy, cloudy and raining when we get to fiorland to the cruise but it was super cool and fun. You're like in real adventure without worrying because the tour coach is experienced and knows everything. He will let you know every details of the mountains/rivers/waterfalls/etc. The cruise itself was amazing and getting wet from the rain and waterfalls was the best experience. While I took a lot of photos of myself and the views. I even met new friends whom I asked to take a photo of me
