Freezing but fun
May 2021
Amazing scenery and good local from tour guide. Coach was freezing and unable to be warmed up so had to buy an extra pair of socks and a scarf at our first stop in Te Anau. Slowly warmed up after that. Milford cruise was ok, the captain was very good and knowledgeable. We got to see two seals which was the highlight. Very long day, Suggest bringing some of your own food.

Told we were being upgraded
Jul 2020 • Couples
We were booked on Milford Sound Coach to go to the Milford Sounds. We got a phone call the day before we left to say we were being upgraded and will be travelling with Southern Coachline instead. We were not upgraded! We were all put together on the one coach completely full. A lot of us couldn't sit together as couples. My husband and I were squashed on the back seat of the bus in the middle. We decided to fly back because of the uncomfortable ride. I recommend lining up early to get a seat together.

Bus left from our hotel earlier than the agreed time. Had to get taxi
Mar 2020
Our booking was HY6JWV March 13th (2 pax). Bus left our hotel earlier than the stipulated time (written in the contract)
We had to incur NZD 500 expense to meet our bus

No replies to our emails.

Milford Sound is amazing but we almost missed it due to above stated service failure.
Had we not taken a taxi we would have lost the entire payment.

Mar 2020 • Couples
Beautiful weather for our Southern Discoveries Coach from Queenstown and Cruise, with Air Milford return flight. Literally not a cloud in the sky with flight over Southern Alps almost as awesome as Cruise on Milford Sound which is truly the eight wonder of the world. Both coach driver and pilot were very informative.

Worth it, though cruise food disappointing
Feb 2020 • Solo
Our coach driver/tour guide was Brad. Brad was really great, very funny and insightful commentary (also gave some really good recommendations for local food and activities). It's a very scenic drive with several opportunities to stop and take photos of the beauty. It's a long day but the scenery at Milford Sound is well worth it. It's also a very comfortable coach, so the long drive didn't bother me too much.
However the cruise included in this ticket is operated by Southern Discoveries which was a little disappointing. The picnic lunch was average - ham and cheese sandwich with no other alternative for dietary requirements unless you order in advance (which I don't remember being given that option). And the commentary on the cruise was few and far between.

Safe
Feb 2020 • Friends
The tour itself was amazing , the views made up for the things that could of been changed . Due to the weather the pick up time was changed but no email was ever sent with the updated times . The time for pick up was at 6:50 am and we got picked until 7:30am , which was fine but we could of sleep a little longer . Then during the drive there was stops on the way back that could of been made in order to take photos . Only photo opportunities were offered on the way to Milford sound but it happened to be raining . On the way back it was sunny and we could of stopped . The roads were a tab bit damaged due to the rain but we were all safe . It felt nice having someone look out for us . The actual cruise was a once in a life time view and experience .
