What people are saying about South Island

Gorgeous. Nice coach. Laid back, informative commentary. Nice boat

We were picked up from our hotel (Mercure). The coach was quite comfy. The commentary was quite slow but informative too. There were a good number of stops for some gorgeous photos. The refreshment stop was quite cool and there were decent vegetarian options and there were friendly alpacas around too. The cruise was pretty straightforward and we spent most of the time on the deck. The commentary on the cruise is not as audible on the deck but the views are spectacular (we had sunny weather all through - saw a few juvenile seals lazing around on the rocks, no dolphins though). There are some basic meals available on board for vegetarians but you can't pay by cards that don't have details embossed (I paid later at the counter). They offer an optional helicopter or plane ride back to Queenstown provided weather is good. Perfect all round for romance and photography since the entire journey is quite breathtaking

Sensational. Great flight, pilot and cruise!

Very glad I choose to fly to Milford Sound instead of doing the whole day bus trip. Very efficient operation from pick up to drop off. No waiting around. No over energetic annoying tourism staff trying to oversell the experience. Pilot was great, providing just the right amount of information without being distracting which allowed us to soak in the amazing landscape. Cruise was also great. Beautiful waterfalls, snow capped mountains and plenty of Dolphins and seals coming out to play.

Cruise was great even if the weather was wild - $10/hr parking not.

Cruise was great even with a wild and windy day. Certainly made the waterfalls (waterclimbs?) easy to see. Observatory was fun but I'm a fisher/diver/ecologist - don't expect an aquarium experience. Was pretty annoyed to get charged $10/hr to park in an area I'm sure the NZ taxpayer built/paid for now under the concessionaires control. $40-50 to park while spending money there already....just not on. And not many other options. Rip off guys.

Fantastic!! The guide Sam was a high point. The Fiord was amazing!

I especially appreciated our guide Sam who was informed and entertaining throughout the trip. He is a safe and careful driver too, which really helped for those of us not used to driving on high mountain roads. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Queenstown, as it has been a high point of my trip here. Thanks again to our guide and driver Sam, who did an amazing job.

An excellent experience with stunning scenery and friendly staff.

If you are in this region of NZ you would be foolish not to include this tour in to your itinerary. The scenery was absolutely fabulous and the staff on board very friendly and helpful. The tour was recommended to us by a friend, and we are so thankful they did.
