As part of a 3 week trip around the South Island my wife and I had always wanted to do a trip to Milford Sound. We chose VIP Tour because of their great reviews and were not disappointed. By arrangement Reece picked us up in an 18 seat tour van from our accommodation. There were a total of 11 in our bus that day. We had paid for a packed lunch which was worth the extra small cost. Reece, the friendly driver was a fountain of knowledge having done the tour for over 20 years. The scenery was amazing; we stopped at various places going to and on the way back from Milford Sound so Reece could show us various points of interest. Given that in the peak tourist times before Covid there were daily, approx 100 buses going to and fro from Milford but on our day there was our group plus a small group from another bus in the car park at Milford which had spaces for scores of buses. On our boat trip I counted about 25 people including a few kids. The boat's captain through out the trip told us of various points of interest pointing out penguins on the shore, seals basking on the rocks or pods of dolphins which came up to the side of the boat and put a real show on. You could almost reach out and touch them. We were lucky in that the day was brilliantly fine and the sea was calm. There were the usual waterfalls to see and these are amazing but of course when it is raining there are a lot more. All in all it was an amazing trip which we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone.

This tour company is outstanding. The coach, the stops along the way, the boat trip with Mitre Peak cruises were all perfect. We have travelled a lot and there are some experiences that you will never forget. Even though we are New Zealanders we were blown away. A huge thanks to Reece the driver, so safe and knowledgeable with a great personality. We could not have asked for more,

Milford Sound is a must if you're travelling in the South Island, and VIP Milford tours were great. We had Steven as our guide - he was so knowledgeable and picked up on the interests of the group to tailor his commentary. The cruise was great too - smaller boat and perfectly timed with the van's arrival.
