Peaceful part of New Zealand, natural beauty, spectacular on a clear day. Don't forget your binoculars. Look out for wild life, there is plenty to see.

Everything about Fiordland is amazing and this sound offers a lot more than Milford - i.e. the journey to it is an experience. It has more wild life. We went with Real Journey's and they offer a great experience

The trip alone across Manapouri is fantastic, then the power station is something else - quite a feat of engineering. And then the Sound - if only I could come here every day.

Visited here on the Rapsody of the Seas, great Christmas cruise, absolutely stunning scenery, we actually went into Milford Sound and Dusky Sound, seeing these spectacular sounds by ship is amazing

Have just returned from an overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound in New Zealand with Fiordland Expeditions. This company does not seem to have the same high profile as their competitors but I could not imagine any other company providing the absolutely superb experience offered by this company. The boat was clean, comfortable and efficient. The meals were absolutely brilliant thanks to Alan who is actually a chef by trade and boy was it obvious right down to the "made from scratch" scones. Our travelling companions were three other couples which made for a nice small group providing entertaining and interesting banter. The crew were attentive without being intrusive, they were vigilant to the guests every need and were extremely entertaining in their own right. The scenery was magnificent as was the commentary which was carefully orchestrated to provide the guests with an educated and interesting overall impression of a wonderful natural wonder. All in all this was a highlight of our Southland holiday and after having spent two days on the Doubtful Sound we decided we would not embark on the tedious road trip to Milford Sound (5 hours each way from Queenstown by coach on winding roads) for only a two hour experience. Congratulations to Fiordland Expeditions for a truely remarkable experience.
