A really fabulous trip from Te Anau to Milford Sound on a mini bus. Ray was our driver and we got a well informed commentary along the way with stops for photo opportunities and a bush walk as well. Morning tea was provided in spectacular scenery and lovely weather following a big snow dump the week before. At Milford we went on a small vessel to cruise the fiord for two hours. Again an informative and interesting commentary. I loved it all, appreciating the intimacy afforded by the small nature of the tour. Highly recommend this tour commencing at Te Anau. A great place to stay away from the busyness of Queenstown.

This was a wonderful day trip. Our tour guide, Jamie, was wonderful. Very informative and we had a behind the scenes feel for what we got to see. We had such a relaxing day, being picked up from our accommodations and having a guide for the day. Wonderful way to see Milford Sound.
