transport to milford sound from TeAnau

We thought we would leave our camper at Te Anau (going to stay 2 nites )and catch a ride to Millford sound for the day .Is there a bus or something to hop on.Need a day off driving.

Don,t wont to hook up on a deal from Queenstown as we already have tickets for the red boat cruise,part of our camper deal.

thanks

I recommend Trips 'n' Tramps but the fact that you already have your tickets for the cruise would complicate matters I guess. They operate an unhurried day trip to Milford Sound, including short walks along the way at particularly spectacular spots, morning tea and then the cruise on the Sound. A very interesting commentary is provided by the driver of course. The return journey also includes stops along the road. It is a small group tour so more personalised than the big bus tours. We really enjoyed our day back in 2004. Check out their website - www.milfordtourswalks.co.nz

Trips & tramps are a great option for getting to Milford - the only problem is that you already have tickets for the cruise. You will need to get a bus only ticket and this costs more than buying combination. The campervan company is owned by the same company as red boats so they tend to push their own product. Cost for the bus only with Trips & Tramps is around $75nzp/p. It is the best $ you will spend to let someone else do the driving and get a informative commentery on the way in. Also be awear that if you are staying in one of the fine local camping grounds, they all have their own bus services to Milford and you will not get the most independant view as to what is the best way of getting to milford. Trips and tramps is locally owned and independant of any other operation.

All the best and enjoy your time in NZ.

Do you know what time your cruise departs from Milford Sound?

Red Boats have a bus which leaves from Te Anau at 10.15am (Great Sights) You may be able to upgrade your existing ticket, pay extra and get a bus...

Call/Email Red Boats is my suggestion
