This has been on my bucket list for a while and have skipped it every time I'd been in Queenstown so this time I made sure to make the 12 hour tour. I'd recommend the coach and cruise with the picnic lunch, everything is taken care of and worth the $179 I got from Bookme. The tour was professional, informative and magical. I got to see 5 kea which was one of the highlights of the tour. Sit back, enjoy the views and pay attention to the commentary. Brett the driver was fantastic!

We thoroughly enjoyed the coach and cruise to Milford Sound. Thanks to our coach driver, Fly, for making us feel welcome. He provided great commentary of the history of the area and made the trip feel short with informal conversations off the mic. It was a rainy day but we enjoyed the coach ride, Milford sound cruise and picnic lunch. Highly recommend and hope you get Fly as your coach driver!

We hit one of those 200 days of rain! Wow what an a amazing experience! It was raining to start with but then cleared up a bit to provide beautiful views of the fiord. Bowen and Stirling falls, wow! Went right out to the tasman sea. Highly recommend this cruise. We drove our own vehicle into milford.

Amazing trip. Fly the bus driver was knowledgeable, experienced and informative. He made the 12 hour round trip achievable. The cruise itself was very informative and the scenery was beautiful. Would highly recommend.

Brad the Bus Driver - great commentary (knowledge of Queenstown, Te Anau, Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound…) not to mention, his humour, awesome pronunciation of Te Reo Māori and Māori storytelling. Professional, Experienced driver & excellent host for 9 of the 12 hr Tour. Milford Sound is spectacular! We’re glad we experienced this all with Southern Discoveries. There is hot food to purchase on board, which we did to accompany our packed picnic lunch. Service from the Cruise staff was welcoming & accommodating!
