The experience was good. Our guide kept us continuously occupied with the updates on the scenery and kept time. He was humorous and also very helpful. The cruise was well organised with a decent buffet lunch. In spite of rains everyone was eager to be on the deck as we cruised along the river. Everything went smoothly according to plan.

I recommend my driver Benjamin. Such a thorough knowledge of the area and so well worth the drive to, cruise and drive from Milford Stound. A beautiful sparkling day with lots of memory's to take home. A shame there were a couple of stops I'd have liked to make but couldn't eg lupins & waterfalls. Maybe next time I come back.

We had the bus driver “David” said to call him it’s his boss name, was absolutely amazing and so welcoming, friendly really buzzing and full of laughs. The best commentary and jokes! Such a pleasure to ride with gave us plenty of information about NZ and when toilet and breaks stops where coming up!

Great day out to Milford Sound, better than driving and good commentary from the tour guide.Plenty of history.

Confortable bus, great driver/guide. Good stops. Great boat trip
