    The tour company had amazing knowledge about the local area and took great care driving us to and from Milford. Just wish we knew there was a high chance that we wouldn’t have been able to fly. They have reimbursed us but still disappointed we weren’t told. Other than that it was exceptional.

    An amazing Day

    We had the best day, travelling by coach we saw all the magnificent scenery on the journey from Queenstown to Milford Sound. The coach driver stop at strategic points along the way for photo opportunities. The cruise and buffet lunch on Milford Sound was great. We chose to fly back and our Antony from Air Milford gave a a wonderful flight and showed us the majestic granite mountains and hidden lakes on our return journey. I thoroughly recommend this trip.
