Best way to Milford sound?

I'll be on Queenstown next week on solo travel.

I see many options for day tours to Milford Sound, any insight on how to pick the best option?

Best way - Fly, in my opinion.its just such a long day by bus (12-13hrs) so if you have the budget to fly, go for it.

Best coach operator, they all offer something slightly different ie. Glass roof coach, small bus, free lunch etc. I'd suggest Real Journeys, Southern Discoveries or BBQ Bus.

It depends on your budget but a coach/Cruise/Fly out from QTN would be your best option as the coach stops at all the main tourists attractions along the Milford Sound road on the way in.

Bus there - fab drive and the bus stops at all the best views - cruise - fly back

or helicopter in, cruise, helicopter out

no wrong choice :)
