Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Phenomenal! Don't miss this experience.

Our guide's name was Neville (hope I spelled that right), and he was wonderful. Funny and informative, with just the right balance between giving us lots of informative commentary and letting us enjoy the views while listening to movie soundtracks.

I loved driving through the beech forests, and the views from the boat were stunning. I definitely recommend taking the scenic flight back if weather permits. We were able to see the stunning west coast from land, sea, and air all in one day!

Incredible area of the world! The national park is so beautiful and the cruise around the fjords was amazing. Definitely worth the day.
#Shelley was a wonderful guide! Her knowledge and history of the area was a fantastic bonus

This tour was wonderful! Tommy was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide, and I felt like we learned a ton while taking in the sights. He shared facts, history, the best spots for photos, and personal stories relating to the places we drove past/made stops at. The boat ride was also beautiful! We were lucky enough to have a sunny day, but it looks like the tour is amazing on rainy days as well. This was our favorite tour in New Zealand!

Excellent tour! Very smoothly run. Perfect amount of stops to break up the driving. Weather was beautiful so we were lucky to be able to fly back. Sinchan was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. Thank you for a great experience!

Nev was an awesome tour guide and made the whole day super enjoyable. Great to have a guide who can tell you a good story about everything you drive past.

Our guide, Graeme, was great! Shared history along the way, gave us time at all the picturesque stops to take photos, and a fun personality! It was a long day but perfect for us to relax after flying from the U.S., then Auckland to Queenstown the day before. Sunshine and waterfalls made for a perfect cruise. This small group tour is the best way to see Milford Sound from Queenstown.

This experience was awesome! Our guide Doe was amazing. We had so much more fun than expected. We stopped at so many great picturesque stops and there was no way you could have known to stop at them without the knowledge and experience of your guide. The van was comfy, there was 12 total on our trip (max) and it was comfy. We stopped for bathroom breaks and snacks, we didn't get the lunch but one stop on the way out had fantastic sandwiches that we bought and ate later. The cruise was so fun - if you want to go under the waterfall on the front deck consider bringing a change of clothes. The first half of the day flew by and driving didn't seem too long. We wanted to fly back but it didn't work out. Most of us tried to sleep on the ride home but the road was a little bumpy and made it difficult even in the smooth riding van. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to go to Milford Sound! Great investment of time and money.

My husband and I were really looking forward to our coach, cruise, flight experience at Milford Sound and the day did not disappoint.
The 5 hour + bus journey (in a minibus for 16) flew by with our driver / guide Sinchan on top form - making sure everyone got involved, sharing interesting facts (geography, botany, history, craft beer and more!) and keeping everyone amused!
The boat was small enough to make sure everyone had space and could see all the top sights.
Best of all, our flight back to Queenstown was awesome. We had a wonderful view of the Sound, the mountains and valleys, lakes etc.
All in all an amazing day out!

We had high expectations for this tour, and it did not disappoint! We had the best driver, Sinchan who made the drive into the Fiordland National Park not only entertaining but super informative. The 5 Hour drive flew by quickly. Sinchan even worked on a last minute booking on a flight out since the weather proved to be perfect for the opportunity. Furthermore, our driver knew the best places to stop for pictures and was quite the photographer! We hope to book more tours with altitude touring, and our driver Sinchan!
