Service rating:   excellent

Andres who took us on the safari was the best, he was absolutely amazing and had such attention to detail, and of course great rapport with us. Adrian who took us on the Milford coach was pretty good too, he was funny. Onsen and Milford boat cruise were nice, but of course it was a less personal experience with them.

Product rating:   good

Wonderful experience all up. And if I hadn't done this exact trip before I'd probably give 5 stars. Everything was great, I just remember my trip here 2 years ago with Mary on the coach and she was absolutely brilliant, she made it really personal and warm and she had so many facts to give. Adrian was great too, I just have another experience to compare to, but Adrian was still great and very funny. The cruise was just like last time, it was gorgeous and brilliant and the staff were friendly. The Australian captain was a little cheeky though talking up Australia. All in all, fabulous trip, and I'm glad I did it again with my partner.

Latest Questions about Milford Sound Coach & Cruise - Real Journeys

is this a return trip to queenstown?

Is it possible to book only the cruise, as we are staying in Milford Sound and plan on booking the Morning Glory kayaking and then would like to also book a book cruise (same day as the kayaking - please advise?)

Comments

Yes if you are already going to be in Milford Sound then you can certainly just book the Milford boat cruise without the coach transfers from Te Anau or Queenstown. See the link below. If you are doing the morning glory kayak cruise first then this trip returns back to Milford wharf by midday so you could book the 1.35pm Nature Boat cruise

I am trying to figure out the best way to get to Milford Sound from Queenstown. Does the cruise take 4.5 hours because there are several site seeing stops along the way we don't want to miss, or is it 4.5 hours of straight driving? If we stop, how many times do we stop and for how long each time/ How long would it take if we drove straight to Milford sound? I look forward to your answers. Thank you!

Hi, is there an optional international buffet lunch to choose during the cruis?

Comments

Hi David, unfortunately there isn't a buffet lunch on this cruise. There are a couple of different lunch options though which need to be pre-ordered and you can choose from the standard picnic lunch (currently $17) which consists of a sandwich, biscuit, cheese & crackers, fresh fruit and juice. There is also a Japanese Obento option (currently $33) which contains miso soup, rice, fish, chicken, pickles, sushi, salad and fresh fruit.

We are staying in Te Anau on Friday night 11th April after completing the Kepler Track. We would like to go to Milford Sound on Saturday 12th April and do the boat trip and then go back to Queenstown on the Saturday night afterwards. Is this possible? We would need to take our bags with us from Te Anau or be able to pick them up on our way through to Queenstown.

Comments

Hi Lachlan. Yes this is certainly possible. We can arrange for you to be picked up from your accommodation in Te Anau and then dropped off at your accommodation in Queenstown after your Milford Sound boat cruise. The cost is the same as the coach and cruise from Queenstown which is currently $178 per person. To book simply click on the green book now button. Just be sure to mention in the additional information field that you wish to be picked up from your accommodation in Te Anau and dropped off in Queenstown afterwards.

What time does the coach return to Queenstown, please? There's a reference to it being a 13 hour trip - so I'm assuming it's sometime between 8 and 9pm?

Thanks, John.

Hi. We are coming to Queenstown on the 21st August (Tuesday) and leaving on the Sunday.We are very intrested in doing the Milford Sound Coach & Cruise Tour. Im not sure which day is best to book and how far in advance we should book. What would you recommend? Just to confirm we will be picked up in queenstown at 7am and then be back in Queenstown at 7pm. Where do we meet to be picked up?

Comments

Hi Sarah, I recommend booking at least a week in advance to secure your spot. The Milford Sound Coach and Cruise tour departs daily so it doesn't really matter which day you choose. The Milford Sound is stunning in both sunshine and rain, especially rain because you get to see the waterfalls in full force. When you make your booking you will receive a ticket with all the necessary details you need to know on it. You are collected from your accommodation for this tour and dropped back there at the end of the tour at about 7.30/8pm. Your pick up time varies slightly depending on where you are staying.

How much would the optional lunch cost in addition? Can we bring our own food on board?

Hi Vernice. At the moment if you book the Milford Sound coach & cruise from Queenstown or Te Anau there is a special on that includes a free picnic lunch up until the end of October. When are you planning on doing this tour? The picnic lunch is normally $17. Alternatively you are welcome to bring your own packed lunch on board or you can buy some food in Te Anau when you stop off on the coach in the morning on the way from Queenstown.

Hi,

The coach tour says it is a duration of 13 hours from Queenstown. Does that mean transfer from Queenstown and back to Queenstown? We are there for a holiday from 05 Feb and would perhaps like to do this but of course have to get back to Queenstown again that night?

Thank you

Comments

Hi Kirsty. If you book the Milford Sound coach and cruise from Queenstown its a 13 hour return trip from Queenstown. Its about 5 hours each way in the bus and you spend about 3 hours in Milford Sound including a 2 hour boat cruise with a qualified nature guide on board giving commentary. The coach usually arrives back in Queenstown around 7.30pm at night.
