This trip was a highlight of my holiday. Chose Milford Sound Select based on Trip Advisor reviews. Our driver was very amiable and provided us with many stops for amazing locations and photos.

Woke up early from QT to drive and meet the cruise at 8:55 worth every effort as we stood, sat and watched this beautiful amazing area. Then the drive back was leisurely and captivating too!

This is a great tour, definitely a ''must-do" whilst in Queenstown. Although it takes 5hours in a coach there and back, it's the journey and not just the destination that makes it so worth it. The views even from the coach are amazing. Our tour guide was great and there are numerous stops along the way which makes the time... More

The bus trip was great value for money and the 4.5 hour trip to Milford Sound made easy due to the informative and passionate commentary of our driver Lester. Lots of stops for photos. Get the 'lunch pack' which at $17 was good value. We made the spur of moment decision to fly back. It was AMAZING. Do it you... More

The coach/bus ride was quite good, with Lester as an amusing and informative driver guide. Frequent photo and washroom breaks. The 1.75 hr cruise was great, filled with amazing views (and lunch). The helicopter flight back to Queenstown was just amazing! Flying over mountains, landing and walking on a glacier, all on a smooth easy ride. It is the best... More

The tour was great and the boat on Milford Sound was so much fun. The views were amazing and we got to see some seals lounging on rocks. It's a good idea to bring food with you because there isn't much opportunity to pick up lunch and you might be stuck with a cold deli sandwich.

It's a long coach ride from Queenstown to Milford Sound but our driver made it a lot easier with a great commentary, from the heart (our driver is working on conservation projects in his spare time) and lots of stops for toilets food and taking pictures at vantage points. The key is that this journey is full of interest en... More

What a great day from start to finish. Picked up from hootel in a very comfort able feeder fan and delivered to bus - glass roof (essential for seeing all scenery), good seating with extra leg room and built to purpose for Milford Sound road trip.
