Good journey, good price and good customer service. Surprising they had consider the people with special diet. One guy in our group really enjoy his gluten free meal. The bus driver is really informative as well. Highly recommended. Vicky Chang

The Coach Driver was excellent and his commentary on the area and sense of humour were well received by all! He had excellent communication & driving skills! The DVD and monitor size & quality was a real boon for the return journey to Queenstown. Good choice of film! The stop by the waterfall on the Sound cruise was memorable and wet as expected. Good Fun! Kevin & McEvoy Kevin McEvoy

We ended up opting for the FLY back option on the day. The weather was perfect and an ideal opportunity for the one-in-a-lifetime experience to see NZ from above. It was worth every cent and our Bus driver Willie had wonderful knowledge of the area on our trip to Milford Sound. Fiona Wilkes

A perfect experience. Hotel pickup (on time), high quality bus (very roomy, great visibility, and comfortable), a great guide (lot's to learn), and very professionally run. Highly recommended. Bruce Zentner

Very enjoyable trip. Coach was particularly comfortable and the driver made it interesting and fun! Would certainly recommend this. neil whitehead

This is one of the best tours our family has ever had the pleasure of undertaking. The stunning scenery, commentary, comfortable, roomy bus seating and the fish'n chips on our return to Queenstown - wonderful. Our boat at the Sounds was a lot smaller than the others which meant we were closer to the surface of the water - ideal when we were blessed with the presence of a huge pod of dolphins to escort us back into the launching piers. A truly amazing, special experience.

Excellent although it was a rainy day. Coach ride from Queenstown to Milford is comfortable. Made a few scenic stop. Milford cruise, medium size cruise ship. See hundred of waterfall during the trip because it was a rainy days. But not any other animals other than seals. Food on cruise ship is OK although not luxurious. Overall is excellent

There were 4 of us in our party from Queenstown to Milford Sound and return on Thursday 14 April 2011.  On the way to Milford Sound Marty's on board commentary was free flowing, informative and exceptionally enlightening as he recalled his previous work experiences, namely as a Conservation Officer. We were fortunate to encounter a school of dolphins whilst on the boat in Milford Sound. Lunch was provided as was 'fish and chips' at Mossburn. Marty was a fantastic tour operator - very knowledgeable in all aspects of the region. We also enjoyed the 2 DVD's on the way back to Queenstown.

Great tour. The bus driver was very informative and we had a wonderful experience. We got to see dolphins in the ocean. Will definitely be doing it again and would recommend it to our friends and family. Isabella

We had an awesome time.. Our coach driver/tour guide Dean was very friendly, informative and made our journey memorable.. Thanks Dean Peta & Colin Peta Francis

First I will say that our driver was knowledgeable and kind spoken without being over the top. His Professionalism and 6 year experience driving the road to Fiord-land alleviated the stress I sometimes experience on mountain roads. The nature trail stops were breathtaking and not over the top and the time seemed to fly. My Fiance and I enjoyed once on the boat the beauty of the sun coming out after the rain which contributed to multiple waterfalls and rainbows. The ships crew were helpful and friendly. This trip is one of hte reasons I will continue to holiday in NZ.

Couldn't be happier - simple and easy booking, great discounts and a tour to the most beautiful place on the planet. Brian Mason

We had a smaller group of people and left later so was able to enjoy the trip without feeling too much like a tourist. the driver gave us information all the way to milford about the area. It didn't rain when we were there (lucky i know!) and I am glad that I've went as it is really gorgeous and how many times in your life do you get to see a fiord?! Definitely worth it, especially with the discount! Oh and be sure to grab the venison pie in te anau as the driver points out! :-p Tina Lai

What a great deal! We got our Milford Sound experience for half price and it was great. Everything was included and we didn't miss out an anything because we had paid a discounted price. It's a full day trip and well worth it. The scenery is amazing and our driver knew so much about the area's we drove through it was fascinating...thanks Ken! We were lucky enough to experience Milford with sunshine and without rain, which we are told is rare, so it really was worth it. Kylie & Danielle

Guys I travelled to Queenstown NZ for holidays with my wife and daughter. The tour to Milford Sound was absolutely gorgeous. They even threw in a complimentary Fish, chips, sausage dinner on top of standard picnic lunch. The driver of the coach, Robin, was a class above rest. A plethora of knowledge about the local history, flora and fauna. Stopped several times for rest, photo shoots etc. 12-14 hours of sheer bliss!! Good on ya. Thanks Robin!!

Great Trip! Had a wonderful time. Excellent Driver and Guide! very informative and friendly! Would recommend this to everyone! Great sights to see. Amazing place to go! josh lau

Good tour, informative commentary all the way, interesting stops made, clear instructions about what was going to happen and when. Great timing of the day too, as we weren't on top of all the other Milford tours which leave Queenstown rather earlier. That meant that most of the places we stopped at, we had to ourselves, although it did mean a late return to town (9.15 ish). I'd go again with this company. And Milford Sound really is awesome!

Great day out despite the poor weather which just made for more atmosphere at Milford. The Driver gave great commentary throughout the trip and with stops on the way the long distance flew by. Thanks for a most memorable day. Adrian Herring

Great tour, the bus driver was very knowledgeable and friendly, his commentary was excellent! Bring warm clothes. Andrew Baxter

Milford sounds is breathtaking and the tour does it justice. Russell our driver and tour guide was fantastic, his knowledge and humour really enhanced the experience. I would recommend this tour (especially if you are lucky enough to get Russell). Andrea Clements

I did a day excursion which did not disappoint despite the fact that it poured with rain for most of the day. The famous 'Mitre Peak'(which I had specifically gone to see) was obscured by cloud. The tour incorporated numerous stops at other places of natural beauty and geographical interest. The coach driver/guide imparted more knowledge than I could retain, in a relaxed and interesting way. I also did a tour to the Fiordland National Park with another company. Definitely the seats were more comfortable and the bus warmer. Personally I found no added advantage in a glass top roof. My day is still up there as a day I would not hesitate to recommend.

We enjoyed ourselves very much. Worth every single cent paid- highly recommended! Although it was a very long drive from Queenstown to Milford and back, Dave, our driver, made the journey a comfortable and pleasant one. He made many stops for us to take pictures along the way - he even stopped us at a very scenic spot (for pictures), where no other tour buses would go! Thanks Dave :) The cruise was excellent - with good commentary by the skipper. My parents spotted some dolphins too! The picnic was OK and we had free fish and chips for dinner. Thank you for the wonderful experience! :D

Hello  Thank you for an amazing trip to Milford Sound. Our journey was excellent and our Coach Guide Russell was outstanding. We were overwhelmed by the views and have come to the conclusion if you haven't seen Milford Sound you haven't seen New Zealand. Thank you again. Kind regards Debra

If the weather was good, that would be great! The coach & the cruise are both very good! The coach driver gave us very good guiding & introductions to every spots. We were lucky to see both seals & dolphins. It's really a highlight to the tour! Cherry Chong

The tour was fascinating and very well organised. I was impressed that they managed to fetch us even though we didn’t mention any pickup point. Very informative during the tour. Highly recommended. Herminigildo Jr Zuniga

If you get Russell as your driver/guide, you are in for some great fun & good knowledge! He made the 5-hour drive to Milford Sound very interesting, it didn't feel like 5 hours at all. The many scenic stops along the way added to the fun. For people who may experience motion sickness, the road from Queenstown to Te Anau on the way to Milford Sound is a bit winding. You may want to munch something, or do whatever it is that helps to ease your discomfort. Otherwise, the scenery all the way and Milford Sound itself is stunning and the glass roof enhanced the views. In short, my family and I had a great time!! Joyce Hoong

A LONG BUT VERY ENJOYABLE DAY MADE ALL THE BETTER BY RUSSEL'S (THE DRIVER / GUIDE) KNOWLEDGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC STORY TELLING THROUGH THE DAY. BEST VALUE FOR MONEY EVER...... JOHN WALKER
New Zealand
What can I say. Couldn't ask for a better service. Starting from picking us up from our accommodation, to fantastic and interesting story telling and facts throughout the day from our amazing bus driver Russell! He was so full of knowledge and stopped at all the great photo ops, even places where we wouldn't even think to stop (including a great place to fill our water bottle). On the way back we got to watch a DVD which made the trip fly by. I highly recommend this trip to anyone!! Soooo worth it! Defiantly got more than what we were expecting! Best value for money!! Thanks heaps! Nicole Deed
New Zealand
Exceeded all expectations!! A must see experience before you die!! Made better by the bus driver Russell who added value to the trip with his enthusiasm, knowledge and love for his country. The crew on the boat were on hand to recommend places to stand on the boat for the best experience and to take photos. It was raining and we didn't know what to expect. This actually added to our experience as there were more fabulous waterfalls, seals and dolphins. The dolphins were amazing and the driver had really skill to get us in a prime position, chasing the dolphins as they jumped out of the water- I have some amazing photos and memorise that I will stick with me for life. Mark Chadwick

We had amazing weather and the trip was out of this world. Russell, our driver, was very informative and played a huge part in us enjoying the trip as much as we did. Mirror lakes are breathtaking and seeing dolphins was an added bonus. Thank you Grotz

Really amazing day at Milford sound, bus driver was really good and give lots of information along the way. Lots of stops in beautiful place. Cruise is really nice all around the fjord. If you hesitate just book you shouldn't be disappointed. jeremy robert
New Zealand
The cruise totally met my expectations, which were really high - the crew was really nice, free tea, coffee and a tasty big muffin. We were on a small boat with just a handful of people, mainly because of the time of the year, but also because we chose the 9:15 departure. So if you don't mind getting up early, go for that one! The drive to the wharf is spectacular in the morning sun. At all those photographers: add enough time (2.5hrs should be fine, depending on your driving style) to stop every now and then on the way to the cruise, it's so much better. Stefan Scholz
New Zealand
The Milford Sound is one of the wonders of the World that needs to be seen to be believed by every New Zealander and visitor. The drive up to the sound is the most picturesque drive we have done. The beauty of booking with book me is that the trip becomes affordable. The boat trip was fantastic, the scenery out of this world and how do you describe dolphins gliding in the bow wave at the front of the boat - so close to us magic!! The other thing we really enjoyed was that the boat was smaller than a lot of the other bigger boats and a lot less crowded. The crew are great and we even got a free muffin to munch on the way.

One of my best trip is cruize to Milford sound. Muhammad Imran Saeed
New Zealand
Had a great trip up Milford with the team from Cruize Milford. Informative commentary which helped our friends from France understand a bit more about it's history and the smaller vessel means we can get right up close to the action (seals & rock walls). Reccommend this trip to anyone. Jon Tamihere-Kemeys

It was great time of cruise. Boat is not big, but staff are very friendly and can see wild animal very close. Thank you very much for all!! Yuriko Kameyama
New Zealand
We had a fantastic time on the cruise. The sights were amazing, and when the captain spotted a few seals on the rocks he took the time to ease right up beside them for a better look. We took our 2 girls (nearly 5 and 2 and a half) with us, and they enjoyed the cruise as much as we did! The free tea/coffee and muffins was a welcomed surprise. Thanks so much for an amazing time. Kirsty THompson
Australia
The Milford Sound was the most beautiful place I've ever seen, and Cruize Milford Sound made it all the more enjoyable to explore. We saw dolphins surfing the waves at the front of the boat within minutes of our departure, and then continued the journey in absolute awe of our surroundings. The captain provided great commentary, and the free coffee, tea, and muffin was a great addition to the adventure. Since the boat was smaller, we were able to get up close and personal with one of the waterfalls, which made us feel like we were on a roller coaster ride! The 90 minutes felt long enough- I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything at all, it was perfect. Definitely recommend to anyone! Jamie OConnell

Had a amazing time...the crew was educated and friendly. would highly recommend to anyone.. bradley alty

Cruize was fantastic and running commentary was very informative certainly worth the drive there. We were very lucky that it snowed the night before so the view going up the sound was exceptional with snow peaked mountains. dael giddins
New Zealand
Well organised, pleasant and informative staff - we had a misty rainy day but still enjoyed the cruise, the waterfalls were spectacular, and great to get so close. The terminal does not open its doors until 9am, so if you get there too early there's nowhere to wait indoors, I think the terminal should open earlier for tourists on the early cruises, and a coffee shop is sorely missing in such a large and busy tourist spot!! A golden opportunity for a business operator. Christina Ahearn

We booked the cruise the night before and arrived first thing the next morning. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The cruise was magic! Definitely one of the highlights of our New Zealand trip! I highly recommend this cruise to anyone wanting to experience Milford Sound. :-)

The cruize was awesome, the employees was smiling, helpful, funny, and the comps tea and coffee a real pleasure!! The commentaries was interesting, and just enough (not too much "blabla"), and the duration, perfect!! And we missed our cruise at 9:45 am because the road to Milford sound was closed. That was not a problem for them, they gave us boarding pass for the 11/45am cruise instead, without changing the rate. Awesome!!! Emma Michon
