I would recommend a boat tour in Milford Sound to everyone, It is awesome. The mighty water falls coming down from the mountains. Its spectacular. Even when you get some rain, more waterfalls appear. Something to mention is, when going with a small boat you have the opportunity to take photos in a more relaxed manner. These are the memories... More

Milford sound is well worth the trip. Taking the large couch is super spacious and comfortable and the drive there alone is worth the trip. There are many stops to take in the views and plenty of time given to take many pictures. The cruise is well organized and there are designated seats for all tour groups. The lunch though... More

We arrived at Queenstown 2 days ago, went to I-Site and start asking question on tour to Milford Sound. We settled on the day trip with Milford Sound Select as they are having a discount of its normal price and was the most competitive for a glass roof coach. The journey on the coach is great. Our guide/drive Jaime gave... More

Kia Ora Irene, So lovely to see your Review, Jaimie is absoultely brilliant and conveys his best regards for this! Milford Sound is an amazing place, the weather is unpredictable; green landscapes, rain forest and torrential rainfall is what makes this place so magical. We are sorry to hear the weather was not as expected. We are thrilled to hear... More

Long bus ride through gorgeous country to get to Milford Sound. Took the cruise out in to the sound and it was a very good visit. Saw lots of waterfalls, seals and nature in general. Apparently you can get a plane ride back for 400 dollars to Queenstown to avoid the long bus trip but if fog rolls in on... More

This was an amazing adventure. We were picked up by the Milford Sound Select glass roof bus coach from the front door of our motel and driven 5 hours via Te Anau to Milford Sound with food and photo stops, and commentary. We then boarded the boat to tour Milford Sound for 1 hour and 45 minutes seeing great waterfalls,... More

This was a great day that was relaxed while seeing plenty of the Fiordland National Park. Our bus driver told us stories and the history along the route and local knowledge that was helpful. The weather was rainy for November but made for a moody Milford Sound. The glass ceiling in the bus was neat as it allowed us to... More

I had the most incredible time on my Milford Sound Select trip! My friend and I had Dave as our bus driver/tour guide and he was so awesome! He had so much information about the area as were were driving and kept everyone on board engaged! We sat at the front which gave us the ability to see everything straight... More
