We are planning to spend 2 nights in Te Anau -- to do the Milford Found Day cruise and and the Doubtufl Sound Overnight cruise.
We are staying in Te Anau -- since we dont want to the long trip from Queenstown to Milford and back on the same day. So the question is -- what is the best way to get to Te Anau from Milford?
1) Tracknet regular bus -- 430 pm --
2) Backroad Bus fracknet - 12 pm.
I was wondering if the Backroad bus route is scenic and worth the extra time/cost?
Also if I take a bus from Queenstown -- as part of the Milford Sound cruise- they have nice buses with glass roofs, and they stop along the way to take photos -- I am afraid I will miss all this if I simply take a Tracknet bus to transfer me from Queenstown to Te Anau
Any advice will be appreciated
