Being a New Zealander did not prepare me for the complete grandeur of the Sounds. The pick up and great van with panoramic windows and comfortable seats. Each surprise and utter size of the fiord, lake, water falls etc. were mind blowing. The size of the boat was perfect, smaller and intimate able to get close to the walls. Generous food. Milford Sound is now my favorite place in NZ.

Small problem with pick up time due to convoy system being put in place but apart from that and a small wait for convoy to get into place the whole day went extremely well. Minibus was perfect size for trip as gave it the small is beautiful personal touch, complimented by Graham the driver who was very informative. Straight from Minibus onto boat where a very sizeable and well cooked bbq was waiting for us. Then free coffee and tea on tap. Views on the boat were spectacular and the journey to the boat didn't disappoint either. Probably the best value for money trip I have done. If planning a trip to Milford Sound I couldn't recommend this bbq minibus highly enough.
