while the Sound & the boat were interesting etc, it's too much driving from Queenstown for too little reward. the buffet lunch on the boat was terrible & very chintzy - no drinks (other than water/coffee/tea) - not even sparkling water or iced tea - no desserts

Hi chonas43, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We’re so glad you enjoyed your full-day excursion. There’s so much to see; it’s incredible how quickly the time flies. Thanks also for your feedback regarding the driver talking while driving the bus. Our guides are passionate about giving our guests a memorable experience. To do this, we prefer to share information and stories with guests in a more personalised way, rather than a recorded commentary. While the road is very windy, all our drivers are trained, and our vehicles contain GPS and speed monitoring through a system in the office. If you have any further concerns about this, please call us at 0800 477 479. Kindest regards, The Team @Milford Sound Select

Great day trip to Milford Sound. Sam was our driver that day and he kept us safe and entertained. I enjoyed his Maori tales and positive attitude - he took everything in stride, even an unplanned detour.
