We are lucky enough to travel into Milford yearly but this was our first time visiting the underwater observatory. I highly recommend this trip it was amazing. Loved all the waterfalls in the rain.. Also thank you for the gluten free picnic lunch, not many people bother to cater gluten free so I really appreciate that.

totally recommend this tour. We drove from Queenstown and stayed at Distinction Te Anau. I would not drive from Te Anau to Milford as I had heard of dangerous driving, and we actually experienced an overtake on a blind corner during our bus trip. Do not drive there. Actually as well as avoiding danger the bus trip was great as you could see the countryside and the scenery was amongst the best we have seen in NZ. At Te Anau the receptionsit was wonderful. The bus driver Brad was awesome in discussion and attitude, loved his jokes. The whole tour was seemless, no problems at all. The packed lunch was ok and ample but there are more options on board such as burgers, pies, chips. The day was a clear day so the scenery was wonderful. The skipper sent some people under waterfalls so laughs all round. great photo opportunities. All round very professional staff, good boat and bus, and very enjoable day. Taking the bus from Queenstown is another 3 hours each way. A variation there is bus it in to experience the scenery and fly out by plane or helicopter to QT. Thanks Southern

Kia ora, Thank you so much for your recommendation. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay in Te Anau and had a nice coach drive in from Te Anau to Milford Sound with Southern Discoveries! Sounds like Brad and the staff in Milford helped to make it a fantastic day out for you. It is definitely important to drive safely on any roads in New Zealand and in particular the Milford Road as it is an alpine road, and particularly in winter it is important to drive to the conditions. Thanks again for joining us and we are glad you we could show you all Milford Sound has to offer. Nga Mihi, Jayne
