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.
