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. Our driver (Lester) made the trip. His manner and commentary were great - plenty... More

5 hours to go, 1,5 hours on the boat, 5 hours back. You get to see some nice and beautiful landscape, but unless you are over 50 it will probably be boring.

Booked through Nakedtours and the price was right! It was a very cold morning with temperatures in single digits Celsius but things warmed up and by the time we got to Milford, it was warm and gorgeous. It is a long ride, even with stops but the scenery was stupendous and our driver Jamie was fun and knowledgeable. Unexpected highlight... More

Our group of four US visitors booked a day long tour and cruise. We were driven by Lester for the several hour journey to and from the boat in a glass-roofed coach. First, whatever company you go with, the glass-roofed coach is KEY. The Fiordlands have incredibly stark landscapes with towering rock formations and the glass roof really helps give... More

He was incredibly knowledgeable about geology in the area. Plenty of toilet stops. Felt comfortable on the coach. Milford sound is amazing. Weather was dreadful but as a result... More

We opted for the free hotel pick up. We were wondering how a big bus was going to maneuver down the tiny street that our hotel was on. Instead we were picked up by a smaller vehicle and brought to the bus. Our bus driver, Jamie, was great. Whenever you take one of these chartered day-trips you have to expect... More

It's an early start and a long time on a coach, be ready if you get a little travel sick. But the whole thing is great and not having to drive it yourself is ideal! Our driver jamie was brilliant and knew so much about the whole journey, all the places we stopped and the wonderful country of new zealand.... More

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!
