My first time to Milford Sounds. Absolutely loved it. Perfect sunny day. Southern discoveries did a great job. Driver was so knowledgeable and funny. Gave us all the great info on the way. Picnic lunch was really nice. Overall I had a great time and it's worth evert second spent on that.

We had the most wonderful time on this cruise. I was a little nervous as prone to seasickness but this was not an issue (the boat was big :-)). The Captain pointed out wildlife and provided commentary on the sounds along the way, all staff from check in to our Kayak tour were friendly and helpful. Our light lunch was larger than expected but set us up for the visit to the underwater observatory and kayak tour. Our guides on the Kayak tour were friendly and provided commentary on the items (penguins, wildlife, etc) we were interested in on the tour. They were also keen to share their own experiences with us - looking after the tawaki and conservation efforts by Southern Experience. Thank you so much for a wonderful trip!

This was an awesome trip, to us it exceeded previous reviews, Eric at the visitor centre welcomed us and was very engaging, our bus driver Brad was the man with all his knowledge, history about the place, very witty but also caring and mindful of the many different walks of life onboard. Definitely the 8th Wonder of the World and the cruise topped it off a magical experience with Capt Adam and his team, very welcoming and genuine with their customer service and interaction , that the point of difference!

Highly recommended trip if you really want to experience the real beauty of Milford Sound. Underwater observatory was awesome, my kids enjoyed it. Picnic on cruise was a bonus. Give yourself good 5 hours if traveling from Queenstown including breaks and taking pictures. The staff at the cruise is friendly and knowledgeable. The weather is great and we were lucky there was no rain and we enjoyed the breathtaking view under clear skies. January is great time to visit.

We had the absolute best time. Due to the small numbers of us, we got a very personalised and fun tour. The crew were super friendly and knowledgeable and we throughly enjoyed our trip. Would highly recommend this tour and group.
