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.

    The ultimate climax to our 16 day Nz trip. It was a wonderful experience. The small boutique cruise was an added advantage as we had the freedom to sit or stand wherever we wanted. Coffee tea and biscuits were served. We had a beautiful sighting of the seal and bottlenose dolphins. Over all it was an excellent experience.

    We had Jeff as our tour guide and had an amazing time. We loved Jeff’s fun personality and knowledge of the area and wildlife. His driving was great and you felt safe. Lots of great stops for pictures. The boat cruise was enjoyable and we were fortunate to see the dolphins and their babies. Getting up close to the waterfall and getting wet while taking pictures was fun. Don’t let the length of the day deter you from booking. Ask for Jeff 😊

    Thank you so much Altitude, we had THE best day. Our tour guide Nev did such an amazing job getting us to and from safely for such an enjoyable long journey, great company with unbeatable views. I’ve previously travelled on a Milford Sound Tour with a different company on a larger coach, I am SO glad my partner suggested we try the smaller group this time around, it was a far more enjoyable, personable experience. Again, thank you so much to Nev for taking such good care of us all, I normally get motion sickness and HATE being a passenger, for the first time in my life, I wasn’t affected by either, could not be more grateful or appreciative of the hospitality shown by Nev with his genuine, happy go lucky energy and positive attitude. Highly recommend this tour with this team xoxo

    Everything about the trip, from start to finish was amazing. Kevin( the frenchy) was an awesome driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the region and I learned a lot from him. I would highly recommend Altitude tours for your next trip. The milford sound trip was just as awesome. Mitre Peak cruises has a smaller boat which is really good because numbers are limited and it's not crowded. The captain was great with his commentary during the trip, and because of the size of the vessel we were able to get right up to some of the waterfalls. 10 out of 10

    Hands down this was the highlight of our visit to Queenstown/New Zealand. We could not have asked for better weather with clear skies and no wind, while it was chilly on the cruise, the flight was smooth and scenic. We felt completely safe with Tom as our pilot. His cool, calm demeanor instilled nothing but confidence and he shared so many insights about the area. My husband was lucky enough to take the copilot seat next to him even. It was such a special experience. Flying over The Southern Alps, I felt like I could almost
    Touch the mountaintops. I’ve never seen such a beautiful landscape. And the cruise was smooth, with tea to keep us warm. The waterfalls and pods of dolphins were the extra special touches that made
    This tour magical. Everything pales in comparison and I am still processing what an amazing experience this was. Thank you for a memory to last us a lifetime.

    We were very lucky and got a lovely clear blue sky day! The staff were so lovely, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The boat ride was a great way to view the Fjords and the underwater observatory was so much better than I could have imagined!

    Jeff. A true trooper of a guide who goes well out of his way to ensure we are all well take care of and all our interests are met. He takes extra care, time, warmth and willingness to take really nice pictures of all the families withing rhe group.
    A most appreciated gentleman with a heart of gold and a great nature and spirit.
    I would highly recommend this small group tour with a Goldern Guide like Jeff.
    Many thanks for the most memorable family trip we have had since we started coming to the South island in 2007. See you next visit for Doubtful Sound!

    While this is a long day on a bus, Barry our driver did a fabulous job, enduring we were comfortable and pacing stops for food breaks and photo shoots. We were thrilled to see the young Kea in the wild! Our cruise was very enjoyable particularly since the boat took us up close to the cliffs & waterfalls. The sun shone & Fjordland, the forests, mountains, rivers & plains were truly amazing to experience.

    It was a fantastic trip so I have to write my first review online.

    We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to our coach driver, Paul Brown. We feel blessed to have had him today. Brownie is undoubtedly the best coach driver and tour guide we've had. His professionalism and wealth of knowledge were incredibly impressive.

    Besides, Souther Discoveries offer lots of good deals on their webpage, it's even cheaper than the third party webpage that I booked with. I wish I knew it earlier.

    Southern Discoveries and Brownie created unforgettable family memories for me and my family. We hope that more people will have the opportunity to experience the amazing service that we had today. We will definitely recommend their service to you. I have to share with you that Queenstown is now our favorite holiday destination. #SouthernDiscoveries #SDShareandWin

    Stunning landscape and we were very well looked after - happy to recommend to others. The flight back to Queenstown allowed us to save the best to the last at the end of the tour.
