This is one that you can't afford to miss! We were picked up, morning tea provided, given an amazing opportunity to get slightly off the beaten track and go to places you would normally miss if you're travelling independently. The smaller bus meant for more personal contact and the knowledge of our tour driver/director Jacqui regarding flora, fauna and history... More

First of all, if you are planning on doing a boat tour at Milford sound, I suggest going on a tour bus from Te Anau as it takes the stress away from driving to and from and also the stress of finding parking. You do learn a great deal about Milford sound and the stops along the way if you... More

We did the fiordland land extraordinaire tour, with about 17 people in our group. As advertised many many photo stops and entertaining commentary. Our tour guide was very indulgent for anyone's requests and he took extra time to help us learn how to take the best photographs Only negative is timing was a bit tight –we didn't get our morning...

Thank you for your comments about our/your tour to Milford Sound. Karlyn does like to show off every possible scenic place on the Milford Road and always asks if every one is okay with the later arrival back to Te Anau. Had you told him you needed to be back at the advertised time, he would have done that, and... More

This would have to be one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our guide Karlyn was very knowledgeable and made the day fun. So many wonderful stops along the way that would not have been possible with a large coach. I would recommend this tour to anyone staying in Te Anau and wanting to visit Milford Sound.... More

This 'experience' was everything we could have wished for (excepting it didn't rain, therefore the waterfalls at Milford were limited). Karlyn really made this tour. He has an unusual take on life, is very positive and enthusiastic in his mission to make sure everyone on his tour took the maximum pleasure home with them. I don't need to describe the... More

Small group with Terry our driver set off at 8 am from Te Anau to journey through to Milford Sound. A genial and very informative driver, we all thoroughly enjoyed every stop en route despite the dismal weather. Boarding our designated boat, carrying our fabulous pre booked lunches, we experienced many, many waterfalls because of the extra rain! All in... More

The Fiordland small bus tour and cruise were excellent. Our bus driver, Carlin, was interesting, informative and fun. The relaxed pace allowed for short walks and many photo stops. Mitre Peak provided a great cruise. The morning tea scones were yummy. The picnic lunch was delicious and satisfying. You will need to take your own lunch if you don't pre-order... More

There are a lot of different options if you want to visit Milford Sound. This one is definitely one of the best options available. They start from Te Anau handling only small groups.
