We decided not to join the hordes of day trippers who try to make the 14hr day trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound and back. Bad idea. Most of the guys got sick or worn out the day after. So we decided to heed local experts advice and to stay over in the beautiful town of Te Anau for 2... More

Thank you for your review of our small group tour to Milford Sound. Good on you for going to the trouble of visiting Te Anau as a base for your Fiordland adventure. That enables us to spend more time on the special parts of the Milford Road. The scenic part of the tour begins in Te Anau. We hope you... More

Fiordland Tours Te Anau When we booked, 3 months in advance for the Milford Sound tour. We didn’t expect it to be so good. It’s a small group tour. Very well organised. Jacqui our excellent tour guide explained everything very professional when driving. The stops were very well organised, with tea break. The pre ordered meals were also very good.... More

We took the bus trip up to Milford Sound so both of us could enjoy the scenery. It was raining & although the clouds were low the waterfalls were majestic. Our driver Terry knew every detail of the area. Ran a full commentary as he drove & had the answer to every question asked. And he was a great bloke.... More

Thank you for your review of our tour to Milford Sound. We are pleased you appreciated Terry as your driver/guide for the day. His 30 years living here in our beautiful Fiordland has obviously shown through when answering your questions during the day. We do have other activities for you to enjoy next time you are here.

We had a really wonderful trip to Milford Sound from Te Anau with the extremely knowledgeable and friendly, Jacqui. She's a gem of a guide! There were seven of us on the tour, and even though it was rainy for most of the day, we made 19 plus stops and enjoyed the incredible scenery. Jacqui was always conscious about finding... More

Day trip to Milford Sound from Te Anau in a minibus and 2 hour boat trip in a smaller boat on the Sound. This has to be the best way to visit the Sound in one day. You are picked up from your accommodation in a comfortable minibus and driven to the boat. There are numerous beautiful stops on route... More

Okay yes, we got stranded at the underwater observatory because we thought it was part of our tour and we had to get an emergency (free) shuttle boat back to shore so we weren't stranded in Milford, but before that mishap, we really enjoyed the tour with our host Jackie.

The Underwater Observatory is an option with the "Day" tour but not the "Extraordinaire" tour which is a complete day without any extras. When Jacqui found you had 'jumped ship' and would have had to wait for 45 minutes for you to re join the tour, she had no option but to make alternative arrangements for your return to Te... More

We almost NEVER do tours but opted for this one after reading reviews touting small groups. Did we ever luck out! There were 4 of us in a 15 seat van, making the numerous photo stops on the way in and way out so easy! Having someone else do the driving along the winding road gave everyone a chance to... More

After hours of research, we found this gem. Leaving from Te Aanu in a modern 15 seater bus gave us more time to stop (19 different stops!) and take in the scenery. The smaller bus gave us more access to places where the coaches couldn't reach. Our guide for the day was Jackie, and she was fantastic. Her knowledge and... More
