    Our Milford Sound day tour was established in 1994 and is a top-rated small group Milford Experience. We allow our guests to escape the crowds and offer a truly unique day, showcasing this world famous region.

    On this full-day Milford Sound tour from Queenstown or Te Anau, you will enjoy guided commentary to and from Milford Sound with our experienced guides. Our small group tours give our guests the ability to get to know the driver and each other, creating a more personal and memorable experience.  

    Once in Milford Sound, we join a stunning two hour small boat nature cruise on the fjord – see waterfalls, fur seals, penguins and occasionally dolphins. Enjoy fun and informative commentary from your nature guide, and plenty of off-the-beaten-track visits away from the crowds.

    We have custom made, 16 seat, glass roof Mercedes touring vehicles. This is business class travel with extended legroom, leather interior, panoramic windows for the best views, and USB charging ports onboard. Travelling to Milford is a 12-13 hour day from Queenstown or a 7-8 hour day from Te Anau and our smaller vehicles give us the opportunity to stay away from the crowds, as well as more flexibility with where we stop on the journey.

    Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch (optional $25 extra – add at checkout). We can provide for vegetarian and gluten free diets, and will do our very best to accommodate other dietary requirements.

    The Milford Sound Day Tour departs Queenstown daily at 7:30am and returns around 7:30pm.

    *Please note minimum passenger numbers are required for this tour to operate.

    Milford Sound Tour FAQ's

    You’ll be travelling in one of our custom made, 16 seat, glass roof Mercedes Sprinters. With extended legroom, leather interior and those ever important panoramic windows for the best possible views your journey will be very comfortable!

    The full day trip takes approximately 12 hours from Queenstown, and approximately 9 hours from Te Anau. This allows us to make plenty of stops enroute to ensure you enjoy the journey as well as the 2 hour boat cruise in majestic Milford Sound.

    Our vehicles are 16 seaters, so this will be your maximum group size on the van, making for a more personal, small group experience.

    There is no minimum age for this tour, it’s a great day out for kids seeing the beautiful scenery and wildlife! It is of course a long day of travel which can be challenging for babies, and young children.

    We can provide a pre-booked picnic lunch for $25 per person which will include a sandwich, piece of fruit and snacks. If you don’t choose this option we suggest bringing your own lunch. We do stop in Te Anau at a cafe however cannot guarantee their lunch supplies and there is no food in Milford Sound or on the boat.

    We partner with Mitre Peak Cruises, who are a small boat operator in Milford Sound. They’ll provide a 2 hour cruise through the sound, getting up close to the towering waterfalls and providing informative commentary.

    We make multiple stops enroute for coffee, at a cafe and bathroom stops, and there are bathroom facilities in the terminal at Milford Sound and on the boat.

    We don’t want to give too much away! You’ll make a couple of cafe stops before getting to Fiordland, and along the Milford Road we’ll make multiple stops at scenic points. Our guides know the best spots on the day and will choose these based on being away from the crowds.

    The wildlife changes each day and season, but if you’re lucky you’ll see seals, kea and an array of birdlife. We also quite commonly see dolphins and also have seen a baby humpback whale!

    The road is very well looked after so is always in great condition. The conditions can change per season, in winter there will often be snow around at points that don’t see the sun – making it even more beautiful!

    Absolutely! Our guides will explain the options for flybacks, and you can book on the day. Of course it would have to be a day where there is a flight going or enough people book to get a flight going, so booking in advance is the best way to guarantee availability.

    If you were to drive straight there it would take approximately 4 hours, but how boring would that be? We make multiple stops enroute to take breaks and enjoy the stunning scenery so our journey to Milford Sound takes approximately 6 hours. Why not entertain yourself with our Milford Sound Car Bingo?!
