    What to Expect
    Board your panoramic coach upon hotel pickup in Te Anau, referred to as the ‘Gateway to Fiordland.’ Your full-day tour includes a majestic Milford Sound cruise within the UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park. 

    En route to the fiord, your driver-guide motors past the ancient beech forest of the Eglington Valley, pausing at the Mirror Lakes for a leg stretch and photo op. Continuing on through the Upper Hollyford Valley, you’ll be mesmerized by Christie Falls before entering the Homer Tunnel, drilled through the solid mountain rock. 

    Brace yourself for the grandeur of the Cleddau Valley, where you’ll follow a footbridge over the Cleddau River to the Chasm to view the river’s turbulent whirlpools before descending into Milford Sound.

    From your cruise boat, indulge in the splendor of your surroundings as you glide past waterfalls that splash down vertical, glacier-carved rock walls. Hear commentary about natural wonders such as the postcard-perfect Mitre Peak, which rises 5,551 feet (1,692 meters) from the water. Don’t miss the wildlife such as New Zealand fur seals, bottlenose dolphins, and the rare Fiordland penguin. 

    Gourmet buffet lunch is included on board the cruise, before you re-board your coach for the return journey to Te Anau.

    We were picked up at a convenient location to our accommodation about 10 minutes after the assigned pick up time, which was ok because it was clearly stated pick up times could be 10 minutes after the assigned time. Unfortunately first impressions were not so great, the driver

    Beautiful place to visit. Bus trip from Te Anau-Milford had plenty of stops for photos and it started snowing at the top of the range. The Fiordland was unforgettable place and the day was worth the price.

    Had an amazing trip going to Milford Sound, what should have been a boring 5 hour drive turned into an interesting fun history/science session with our driver Eric. Made me wished that the rest of my tour guide drivers were all him! Definitely learned alot of NZ history from

    Great tour guide and coach driver! The stops he does along the way are also wonderful. Then you cruise along the Milford Sound on Jucy cruisers. It's such a great experience and the lunch was really great too! Would highly recommend this company!
