We had a wonderful time in the Milford Sound bus tour and cruise with Southern Discoveries. Even though it was raining, our guide and driver, Brad, made sure we stopped for photos along the drive and kept us entertained with useful and interesting knowledge about the area. Due to high winds,however, we had to turn back from going on the cruise around the Milford Sound. Our guide was sincerely apologetic about the cancellation and I reckon he felt worse than we did! So we re-booked to go on the tour again the next day (complimentary passes) to a lovely clear day and were thoroughly mesmerized by the scenery of the road trip to the Sound and the Sound itself! It was 2 tours for the price of 1! We truly live in God's country and many thanks to Brad for sharing his inexhaustible knowledge and genuine love of the South Island with us. His recommendations on eateries and places to visit was also spot on. We will certainly be back! Thank you very much for making our trip so memorable!
Highly recommend this tour and wanted to share our thanks to the wonderful Alia from AustrALIA - she was amazing! Bubbly, knowledgeable, personable, professional and couldn't have delivered a better experience! We were lucky to be part of a very small group, which made for an intimate experience. The van was lovely, with leather seats and flat screen TV with some fun and educational tour advice from the operators during the commute. The vineyards that we visited were a great mix of styles, and we even had a special stop on the way back for coffee and cake (my partner had a craving for sugar).
The trip was excellent. Our driver was fantastic. He had great local knowledge but was also very entertaining. His dinner recommendation at Flame was also excellent. I highly recommend this tour!!
It was amazing. Guide was friendly and managed to give us so many facts and stories about the surroundings which I never knew. It was a superb experience overall.
Had a great day! Really well organized. Excellent guides. Everything to the minute! Great wildlife. Loved it!
