We went on the overnight cruise to Doubtful Sound from Queenstown and it was absolutely magnificent! Queenstown was hit with some bad weather which can often close the Milford Sound road so we played it safe with Doubtful Sound trip (and heard it was the better and less touristy of the Fiord tours!). We were not disappointed! From the second we got on the bus, our first bus driver was giving us facts and information about the local area and hot spots on the way to our ferry. One of our group of 3 was partially sighted and said the commentary was an amazing touch to the drive. Then we caught the ferry with amazing reflective views across Manapouri and onto our next bus trip, with equally good commentary! And that’s not even starting to talk about the overnight boat. We’ve never been in such untouched, isolated tranquillity. The staff were fantastic, food was delicious and plentiful and the nature guides gave us so much information and were so enthusiastic about their jobs, it really made the trip. It was worth every penny and the accommodation was really clean and comfy. I genuinely don’t think we can find a criticism about this trip. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
