Wonderful day with a small group (yey for not being on a coach with 80 people) exploring various stunning spots on the long Milford Road. Excellent guiding by Neil - thank you. Small boat tour in clear blue sky. I highly recommend a smaller, more intimate group experience and being able to make the most of the wonderful short walks along the route. Neat to be inside the Homer Tunnel as well. Great value for money.
Great cruise on the Milford Sounds. Ship was big & spacey. Food to buy looked really good & tasty. Free tea, coffee & water. Crew were very friendly. Got very close to waterfalls , one in particular where some adventurous people got wet from the spray. Dolphins followed us on our cruise which was wonderful. Views were awesome. Highly recommend this cruise.
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!
The lake Pukaki is absolutely stunning and the short hike to watch the Glacier is nice. Refreshments are all stuffs I like haha~ Our guide Anujk is patient and friendly, he offered us some good recommendations about our trips in CHC. The car is comfy as well, this is important as it's a long drive from CHC to Mt Cook.
It was an experience of a lifetime one we will never forget awesome does not do it justice from the moment you board your aircraft . We will do it again . Karl the pilot was fantastic giving a commentary and answering all questions nothing was to much trouble
