Stunning views, entertaining commentary. We had snow almost all the way there and back but clear for our boat trip. Felt completely safe in the hands of our driver, Gabe.
Scenery was as amazing as we hoped it to be.

We had an amazing time on the Milford coach, cruise and flight. Brad was an amazing tour guide, we learned so much on the way to Milford. We got a sunny day on the water, even though there wasn't as many waterfalls, we saw seals and got some epic photos. The flight back is a must do!!

We missed our booked cruise but the lovely lady at the desk organsed for us to go on the next cruise in an hour! She included free lunch as well to make sure the value was the same as the initial purchase! The cruise itself was beautiful with a great captain and crew who gave an entertaining and educational commentary! Comfortable seating and great picnic lunch (I got the vegan option and was very impressed)! Would highly recommend this service!
