If you are going to book a trip to Milford please use these guys! Such a good experience, Jonno was astounding with the knowledge he could provide over the duration of the trip. We found it great in a smaller group as we could interact with all. We were shown some good points of interest and got to experience the cruise on a good rainy day! Definitely recommend going with Milford Cruises 😊

What a fantastic day. The experience started when we got in the van and were greeted by Kreig. He really made our trip. Stopped at places with spectacular photo opportunities. Such a wealth of local and NZ knowledge. You can’t go wrong with this company. I chose them as it was a small group tour. I got that and so much more.

An amazing experience with a fantastic company. Highly recommended that you take this boat as it is smaller than the big commercial ones, and therefore can get much closer to the stunning waterfalls and then playing dolphins. Which we were so lucky to see!!! Such friendly service, comfortable boat and generous tea, coffee and biscuits. Loved it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Cruise Milford cruise on the fjord. Had great weather and got out to the Tasman sea. Very friendly team and well organised. We were picked up at our motel in Te Anau by Fiordland Tours and driven to Milford by Jaimie. He had great knowledge of the area and we had a few stops on the way including morning tea. Lunch was provided and included a huge sandwich. It was a great day. A pity for all the companies that there are not more people travelling and doing the cruises.

Thank you for your kind review. It's great to hear you've enjoyed our small group tour from Te Anau. This tour really is a great way to explore the Fiordland National Park as our local guides love to share their knowledge and stories of this very special area.
