This is the way
Finally got to go see Mikford sound at the weekend, we decided to bus and not drive so we could relax
Let's start with the driver ... and we will end with him ... Our driver Paul , on his 956 trip to the sound was beyond the one and only thing that make this beautiful tour such a relaxing, knowledgeable and mind blowing journey to such a stunning part of the country
Our guide Paul gave such an insight to the surrounding areas on the journey with his witty banter ... I can't believe he has done this so many times but still delivers it with such excitement
Paul you created such a great time for us such awesome memories, thank you

Worth it!
I was hesitant to book this tour as a solo 20 something year old woman. I thought the tour would be full of older people but it wasn’t at all! There were a range of ages and I’m glad I went!! We stopped along the way for photo opportunities and breaks. The cruise was great and so was the included lunch!
Shoutout to Hudson for being a great guide!
Nothing to fault, great day!

Ian rocks!
May 2021
Great trip with our driver Ian. On a long day of bussing the driver makes all the difference and Ian had the balance of interesting facts, abit of humour, making sure everyone was comfortable and knowing when to shut up for a while completely down pat. Not much on offer food wise at the place we stopped for morning and afternoon tea, but understandable with so few tourists in these COVID times. Take some snacks of your own for the journey and you’ll be sweet. The glass top bus is cool. Makes you feel like you’re not so cooped up. And yeah, goes without saying that Milford Sound is awesome. Huge and abit foreboding, we’re just little hobbits left to wonder at her beauty.

Amazing Day
May 2021 • Couples
Had the most amazing day. Couldn't recommend this tour enough. Paul our tour guide was a very good driver and was very knowledgeable about the area. The bus was very comfortable and loved the glass top. The scenery on the drive to Milford Sound and the boat tour were spectacular and liked that we got lunch provided as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

Nice but tough
It was lovely and nice to trip with nice couch.
It was pretty hard though sitting in the bus for a long time and must wear masks.
The guide Paulie was absolutely professional and great for those explanation.

We understand that it can be pretty hard to wear masks for a prolonged period, however, we do need to ensure all our passengers are adhering to the regulations that have been put in place by the NZ Government. We are glad you enjoyed your time with Paulie while on our Day Tour to Milford Sound though! Cheers, Anna and the team from awesomeNZ

Awesome experience for the whole family. Long drive was made enjoyable and interesting with fun facts from our tour guide Paul and his wacky sense of humour. Plenty of stops on the way to enjoy sights up to Milford. Jucy cruise was amazing- crack up captain Fiord and amazing crew- so apparent that they love what they do and they love sharing it with everyone around them. The places and scenery were so untouched and majestic. Amazing!!!

"Fantastic experience around the sounds"
Jan 2021
Overall, the trip was fantastic. Experienced some great stops along the way from Queenstown to Milford Sound. The bus experience is long and I recommend headphones. Our driver, Ian, was amazing! Very informative and accomodating.

On the boat, there is hot food and the skipper was very engaging and educational.

Overall, my partner and I are totally satisfied with the trip.

Ps. Wear sunblock.
