Emma, our guide, met us early in the morning and we drove to Milford Sound. It's a long trip (approx. 4 hours) but Emma broke it up by stopping along the way for photos. We got to the Visitors Center and she directed to one of the smaller tour boats. This was extremely nice because there were less people in the way when we wanted to shoot pictures. She even had a reserved spot inside the cabin for a picnic lunch. She even provided a special lunch for my wife that took into account her food allergies. Just another example of the outstanding service provided.
When the boat tour was over Emma took us to meet our helicopter for our flight back to Queenstown. I strongly suggest this option because it is only 45 minutes back by air and you've already seen the sights from the road on the way up.
It was a perfect day and Emma delivered it!
This is definitely the way to see Milford Sound.

Thank Sandbuilder
