Great day!

This is a great way to see Milford Sound with a narrated drive there. Greg is a great driver and tour guide. I ended up saying yes to the flight home on Milford Air. I highly recommend both experiences.

Nice view

This tour started from Queenstown, so it is easy to access the meeting place. Also, there are a lot of cars on the way to Milford Sound... I recommend you had better join this tour if you are not getting used to driving.

Long drive and rains a lot

They don't tell you it rains over 300 days in Milford Sound. It is very long drive to and from Milford Sound from your hotel. Some of the scenery on the bus ride is good going to Milford Sound, but the straight 5 hour drive...More

We did the Milford Sound bus/Cruise day trip thru Great Sights and our driver/host being Erik who was just absolutely amazing. He was SO knowledgeable about the area. Very relaxing day, but the smorgasbord lunch was very disappointing. Thoroughly recommend this trip BEAUTIFUL!!
