Although we had an issue with overlooking and had to wait for one hour, the weather was perfect for the day and we enjoyed the trip to Milford Sound. It could have been a better experience without the hassle to change the coach and the frustration. Overall it is worth the trip.

We fell in love with Milford Sound the second we arrived! I could go there every day of my life and be amazed by everything surrounding me every single time! And with Te Anau: Milford Sound Tour this experience was so much more amazing! Our guide, Jamie, welcomed us and gave such an amazing experience with all his knowledge about this place and everything in it that we just loved it even more! The cruise was astounding and it felt really personal, despite being for dozens of people! We felt that everyone on the cruise loved everything! It was one of the best experiences of my life!!

Our guide Sinchan was very good and made the tour very enjoyable. Not just Milford sound but the whole tour revealed spectacular scenery and the Parrots were so cute (and cheeky). We were picked up on time from our accommodation in Te Anau and that was a great spot to start. The boat ride around Milford was really worthwhile although we thought some of the group were crazy when the boat went right into the waterfall spray and stood in the open to get soaked…..hahahaha We thoroughly recommend the Small Group tours which we loved
