Milford Sound whole day tour was great, even though we spent quite a bit of time on the bus, our guide (Jonah) was informative and knowledgeable about the surroundings making pertinent remarks along the way. I also really liked the fact that he stopped in key places and allowed us to walk around and explore, rather than being seated in... More

I highly recommend this tour company to anyone looking for a Milford Sound day trip out of Queenstown of Te Anu. We had Jonah as our guide, and he was a perfect host! Informative, funny and down-to-earth, he made the long drive entertaining. There's plenty of stops for restroom breaks, and pictures. My only complaint is that we had uncooperative... More

We did the Milford Sound Day tour and I knew ahead of time that we would be spending a large part of the day in a bus. Our driver and "on ground" tour guide was Paul (called himself Paulie). He was excellent. He made the drive to Milford Sound really interesting. Everyone seemed to enjoy his sense of humor and... More

We were picked up behind KFC at 7.30am for the day trip to Milford Fiord (sound). The bus is only five months old, so comfortable but there is no loo on board. Yucky said paul. The day was a perfect sunny day so paul made stops at places he would not normally eg the mirror lakes. Stop at Wanaka was... More

Overall I had a great time on the awesomeNZ tour! I did the day trip to Milford Sound from Queenstown and, to be honest, i think I enjoyed the ride out there more than the cruise itself. My driver, Paulie, handled those twisty mountain roads beautifully and gave great commentary along the way! It was nice to hear about the... More
