The drive between Te Anau and Milford Sound is something to behold...unbelievable!! I think that Milford Sound is better than Doubtful Sound, not as big but more spectacular and the drive to it simply amazing. Must do if down south.

Come to New Zealand's most magnificent attraction. The fiords are breathtaking and the water-falls are simply superb. A real bucket list must do!

My family and I have been to Milford Sound many times and we just can't get enough of it! The scenery is out of this world and we have been very lucky to have been there when the sun was out. The drive from Queenstown to Milford Sound was also fantastic. There are many places that you can stop and... More

Got off and took a boat tour for 1 1/2 hours(sack lunch included) and then flew back on a different route back to Queenstown for another 40+ minutes. It was a top... More

Milford Sound is the 8th wonder of the world. The coach we booked from Queenstown was very comfortable and made a few stops en route. The scenery on our 4 hour trip was breathtaking and our driver was so informative. Even though we had a rental car, we are thrilled we didn't attempt the drive. Very twisty and narrow roads....

Well worth a visit. Stunning scenery by boat.Only one hotel there but staying in Te Anau and organising the trip by coach to Milford is well worth it. Stops on the way for photos etc and an informative commentary. Two hours out on the sound. Excellent

Weather not great but still had a wonderful trip with Real Journeys. Highly recommend for all ages. Travelled to the end of the sound, where it meets the Tasman Sea. So many waterfalls along the way.

The road to Milford is full of amazing spots (my favorit was Lake Merian), so when we actually got to Milford sound we felt it is a little bit overrrated. but still - Amazing place and a must in NZ
