This breathtaking scenic adventure starts from Queenstown where we can pick you up from your central Queenstown accommodation. We head south along Lake Wakatipu, under the looming shoulders of The Remarkables Range.

Beyond the rugged lake edge the country transforms to high country pastures surrounded by mountains then its down into the serenely beautiful farm country of the Northern Southland plains. Heading west towards the mountains and Te Anau we pass through some of New Zealand's most scenic farm country. Around us are clear streams and rivers, world-famous for their trout fishing.

At Te Anau village we stop for refreshments, looking across the lake we see the undisturbed eastern fringes of the bush clad Fiordland National Park, where green bush clad valleys rise to row upon row of mountain peaks.

We recommence our journey and travel north alongside Lake Te Anau entering Fiordland National Park. This World Heritage area, has some of the most spectacular and memorable scenery in the world. This is New Zealand as you imagined it.

From the Eglinton Valley with its endless golden tussock pastures, we travel into beech forests, past tranquil lakes and crystal clear rivers as we climb steadily into the very heart of the mountains. Passing through mist-covered valleys, carved out by rock and ice to reach the Homer Tunnel, the gateway to Milford Sound under the massive Darren Moutain range.

Starting our descent into Milford Sound we travel from cloud-capped forest peaks into the subtropical west coast valleys of Milford Sound. The sheer visual power of this place has earned its reputation as one of the seven wonders of the natural world, the road trip in is considered one of the great road trips in the world.

Here the cruise vessel awaits and it's time for another unforgettable perspective of nature at her awe-inspiring best. You can choose to have a comfortable window seat inside or stay on deck to make the most of the photo opportunities. Your Skipper will get you right up to spectacular waterfalls that cascade off the walls of the fiord, expect to see pods of dolpins dancing in the wake of the boat and seals lounging on the rocks only metres away. The boat has a bar where drinks and snacks can be purchased. Those wishing to have lunch whilst on the cruise can place an order with us when booking.

    booked at 1159 pm for next day tour that leaves at 615 am, they missed informing the bus driver due to super last minte booking and the schedule informed not so late , but once they realised the mistake got us free cab to catch the bus en route Bus was excellent, not too crowded, their boat cruise is in colaboration with the Real Journeys another large operator in Queenstown / MF and very nice Overall couldn't expect anything better Left some luggage in the bus (despite being reminded politely to check if all beliongings were taken) and could collect it next day from their office , the lady in the office was extra helpful! Overall an awesome experience

    前一晚訂隔天馬上出發,早上7點在top 10等待接送,那麼遠竟然還有接送,真的很不可思議,今天的司機Jamie,非常熱心的介紹沿路的風景,跟逗車上的大家笑,非常歡樂,開車的技術也非常的專業,經過慢長的路程到了米佛峽灣,我們上了船,jamie還特地跑到岸邊跟大家揮手,真的很甘心,遊完湖,回車上看見jamie在認真打掃著車子,這大推,然後他又安全的把我們送回皇后鎮,已經晚上,因為住比較遠,最後下車,他真的把我們送到住的門口,揮手跟我們到別他才離開!推推推

    Thank you so much, Cowboy! The guide was just incredible! Even if at the first day of our journey we got to know that Milford Sound has landslide and the trip is postponed till the next day, we could feel just happy to spend more days in the bus with this amazing guide! We have traveled a lot and New Zealand is our 81st visited country, and still we are sure that this is one of the best and memorable experiences we have had just because of the guide Cowboy! The stories he told were so interesting, the jokes made us smile all the way and overall excursion was comfy, pleasant and joyful. The tips and advices we received were so useful! Thank you again for the wonderful journey, we wish you all the best!

    'The Cowboy' our tour guide has to be the best tour guide on the planet! he made the amazing Milford Sound even more amazing and I could not recommend him or Milford Sound Select highly enough. I was chuffed when looking at all the other cramped buses around us and knowing we had a great bus with an amazing driver/tour guide, his knowledge, great driving and funny jokes were truly something else. I can honestly say this is the only bus to book!

Driver Jamie an asset to the business, was outstanding, had a wealth of knowledge, an excellent driver, funny, yet considerate of all, brilliant! The drive to Milford Sound was equally as stunning as the cruise. A great day! Highly recommend this company and the day trip ( coach/cruise). Loved it!
