Our driver Lester was great especially to be in a bus with him for over 8 hours! Unfortunately Milford was pretty overcast, but it was still stunning. Prepare for a 12 hour day, but not so bad and you learn and stop a lot on the way there. He made sure we stopped many times for bathroom breaks!

A nature cruise on Milford Sound is an experience not to be missed! Incredible views of the Milford Sound fjord, mountains, and waterfalls are breathtaking and you will need to photograph everything for your memories. You willl also see seals and other wildlife like seabirds, and the cruise out of the mouth of the sound into the Tasman Sea is... More

My parents and I went with Milford Sound Select and their glass roof - the best views of any coach company there is. It's the nicest bus, and the customer service was unreal, seamlessly guiding us to our boat and they had such a wealth of knowledge of the wild life, the peaks, and the history of Milford Sound. I...

Really great company to go with. The ride to Milford Sound was amazing. We had a great driver who knew a lot about New Zealand so he gave us a bunch of insights on the country, really interesting! Love my experience with Milford Sound Select. It was drizzling a little in The Sound however it remained breathtaking! Highly recommend.

I went on the coach-cruise-fly package and was amazed throughout. Although the coach journey from Queenstown is quite long (around 4-5 hours) it was full of interesting, beautiful stops and lots of information from the coach driver along the way. Our driver, Jamie, had an obvious passion for the area, and made sure there was plenty of photo opportunities to... More

We had a 5hr trip to get down to Milford but was completely fine as we had the glass roof to enjoy the scenery and great info shared by the driver, Leicester but also getting in breaks to stretch your legs and get some photos of the waterfalls and with the Kea birds! Once on the boat we had our... More

Such a great day in Milford Sound! It was an early start and a long day, but the coach was very comfortable to travel in, and I had tons of room to relax. We had lots of stops on the ride to Milford for pictures, so I was able to enjoy to the journey as much as the cruise itself!... More

The 5 hour bus trip was totally bearable thanks to a wonderful bus driver. He somehow had so much interesting information to share and we took so many stops and had great options for bathroom breaks and photos throughout the drive. After experiencing all of NZ (this was our last tour on our trip) we honestly were a little disappointed... More

Highly recommend a bus tour, we took the later bus departing at 7:45am, plenty of stops on the way to stretch the legs and photo opportunities. Bus driver Jamie was really insightful and was able to share much of his local knowledge with us. He was very prompt and stuck to a timeframe which in the end was better for... More
