The weather was terrible in the morning, so we decided to wait, and take the last cruise of the day, in the hope it would dry up by the time we got there. We were on one of the smaller boats, which was nice -...More

Peaceful and so beautiful ... Should spend at least half day to stop at each highlight point along the Milford Road for enjoying the views and photography

Beautiful drive through farmland, beech forests and majestic mountain peaks, followed by a boat trip around the Sound, where we saw penguins, dolphins and seals...My favourite day so far :)

I loved Milford! From towering Mitre Peak, to the water falls, and raging west coast, Milford is an unforgettable experience. I initially went as a bus tour and ferry (lunch included which is recommended), but when I saw the helicopters on this trip, came back...More

Although it was snowing on the road in and raining when we got onto a cruise we were treated to a special event of so many waterfalls along the entire cruise.

Our trip through Fiordland National Park was rainy,but still beautiful.We ended up taking a cruise through Milford Sound and it was spectacular.The rain actually added to the experience,because we were able to see all the waterfalls.Highly recommend.

We drove ourselves there. Go for an early cruise before the bus loads arrive. That way the drive up is without buses breathing down your neck on tight roads. Not a cloud in the sky. Staff said we were so lucky. We chose Go Orange...More

We did this on Honeymoon trip. It was totally worth going there. Drive to it is scenic. Super Weather, view, Atmosphere. Must recommended to drive there.

The drive and the sights along the way are more interesting than the actual cruise. If you've seen something similar to this before (lakes & mountains, the Tasman Sea), it's kinda underwhelming. Would recommend as a tourist destination if you have time.

We only did the cruise on Milford Sound, we actually drove up from Queenstown with a stop at Te Anau on the way so we did it in two days. Miller Sound is gorgeous, Te Anau is as well but it is very small - we did spend the... More

HI, The only one I know of is that you can get on a tour bus from Queenstown to Milford Sound, do the boat trip and then return on the bus. I think it is about an 10 hour day to do this so not sure if you would have time... More
