My partner and I enjoyed our trip to Milford Sound and all the stops at key locations we made along the way ! For those interested in this trip, it is a long journey (12+ hours) but you'll have an amazing tour guide. Podge was very informative and friendly. He made sure that everyone was comfortable and aware of the schedule. Thanks Podge!

Andy (our guide) was awesome! So knowledgeable, so friendly. He knew all the best places. Advised us on places to go around the wider region. Places to eat (which were really nice too). Just a lovely local. My wife and I could not speak highly enough about this trip.

A magical journey

So lucky to see this truely magnificent natural wonder for the third time in my life, this time sharing it with my children. We had dolphins surfing the bow of our boat for almost all of the trip, it was wet and misty which just added to the atmosphere. A day that I hope my children never forget. And now is a great time to go with only 10% of the usual tourist load going in each day.

Thank you so much for leaving a lovely review! It's a great time to visit Milford at the moment and it's always incredible in the rain. We're delighted you had such a fantastic time on tour with us and we hope it was an experience you'll remember for a long time!
