Pick up was on time and everything went smoothly. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip. The other passengers were friendly and Andy, the driver/ host was top class. His friendly commentary ensured a good day. Small numbers made the trip even better as we felt we had a personal guide. A long day but worth it in every way and would certainly recommend using a commercial operator to do this trip from Queenstown and would certainly recommend this company.
Colin is the best driver/tour guide I’ve travelled with. He took this experience to another level, we learnt so much about the history of Fiordland National park and it’s place in the future conservation scheme of NZ’s natural treasures, and we were well entertained with his humour. The number and velocity of the waterfalls was breathtaking and information about them was superb, the trip way above my expectation.
The Milford Sounds trip was the highlight of our holiday around the South Island. As its a long trip from Queenstown to Milford, we chose to take the coach-cruise-coach option - it was not only a break from driving (we were averaging 200+kms a day)- but with a driver/guide you know about what you're seeing, rather than whisking past the stunning scenery!
Amazing experience with views of layer upon layer of mountains and geographic features that are learned about but rarely seen. Excellent pilot who narrates what we see. The landing and take off are smoother than the usual planes one experiences.
Excellent, friendly staff including tour guide driver and Milford Sound cruise staff- fun and entertaining- the idea of "Liquid Sunshine" will be indelibly fixed in my brain box. :)
