Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was truly an amazing experience made all the better by our local guide Shelley. The scenery on the bus trip to Milford was simply “1-2-3 WOW”. On the sound itself we were fortunate to have up close encounters with bottle nose dolphins and baby fur seals. Shelley provided us with secret vantage points along the way and her personal connection to the Milford area made the trip all the more special. We learnt about the history and the significance of Māori culture while enjoying the scenery. Commentary was entertaining, funny and engaging. Great music choice for the return. It’s a long day trip but it went fast and all worth it!

Great experience - beautiful views along the trip and at Milford Sound! We were a little disappointed that it was drizzling/raining during out trip but our guide had umbrellas for each stop and the rain allowed us to see lots and lots of waterfalls! The only suggestion I have - lots of windy roads driven pretty quickly so if you're prone to motion sickness, take medicine/a spit-up bag. Also, might want earbuds and your own music for the trip back. The Altitude tour was definitely the way to go!

Honestly one of, if not THE best , tours going out of Queenstown , Nev was outstanding and a constant source of fascinating information and laughs.

Goes without saying the scenery is world class and 100% worth it , you will spend your entire day going “ooooo , aaaahhh” and have a sore neck from looking around so much !

You have to book this! Absolutely wonderful day out with Pam as our guide. Pam is hilarious and so knowledgeable. The absolute only way to see Milford is with Altitude. Don’t drive yourself. Thanks so much Pam and also Tatiana for sorting out my location mishap at 630am. Excellent service and adventure

Thank you so much Altitude, we had THE best day. Our tour guide Nev did such an amazing job getting us to and from safely for such an enjoyable long journey, great company with unbeatable views. I’ve previously travelled on a Milford Sound Tour with a different company on a larger coach, I am SO glad my partner suggested we try the smaller group this time around, it was a far more enjoyable, personable experience. Again, thank you so much to Nev for taking such good care of us all, I normally get motion sickness and HATE being a passenger, for the first time in my life, I wasn’t affected by either, could not be more grateful or appreciative of the hospitality shown by Nev with his genuine, happy go lucky energy and positive attitude. Highly recommend this tour with this team xoxo

Thank you for choosing Altitude Tours, we're so pleased you enjoyed the classic kiwi hospitality from Nev and that you got to experience Milford Sound the small group way - definitely a more personal experience!

What a memorable day we had! When I mentioned to someone before our tour that we had made arrangements with Altitude Tours, their response was, “Oh, they are a very well run, first class operation” and I couldn’t agree more!

Our driver/guide Andy was the best!! He really made the trip special for us.

He had lots of great information to share and knew just when, and how much, to share during the early morning portion of the tour when most people weren’t yet fully awake.

This was an exceptional tour. A small group of 16 people in a comfortable Mercedes Van. The guide Nev was great, and the scenery was absolutely amazing. We managed to travel on a beautiful day which meant great views and comfort of environment when hoping out at stops.

Absolutely amazing! Anyone doing Milford Sound day trip should 100% fly back! Your guides are legends and makes the day so enjoyable instead of just sitting on a huge bus curving around the windy road, your able to stop, walk around, get some fresh air and know what you’re in for as the day goes along. Small bus enables small group and also small boat trip into Milford Sound.
