Nigel was an excellent guide. His commentary on the history and insights of the area, it’s geology and New Zealand in general was very informative. Milford Sound and the Fiordland National Park was absolutely amazing. The cruise around Milford sound was delightful and spectacular. The lunch was a very tasty surprise!

This trip was exceptional. We had a small group with a guide called Graham. There are not enough superlatives to describe him. He was knowledgeable, witty, organised, friendly and chose great places to stop. We did the BBQ tour and lunch was outstanding. Obviously, the weather was in our favour, with complete sunshine and shorts the order of the day. Milford Sound was breathtaking, and the boat was not too crowded. Getting picked up from Te Anu was easy and communication prompt. I highly recommend this trip it will be one to remember.

It was an amazing trip. The drivers was so funny and interesting. You really felt you were taken care of. So impressed. I would never book any other tour except with Viator as the three tours I took in NZ and the 1 in Australia last year were so great. Good job Viator for picking great people to deliver your tours.

We have a smooth ride from Te Anua to Milford Sound. The driver-cum-guide provided us with useful commentaries on interesting scenic spots along the way. It was a memorable experience. The BBQ lunch was superb. It was marvellous that our guide could whip up so much goodies within a short time. The weather had also been kind to us and we had a wonderful time on the top deck of the cruise ship - taking in nature's wonders, enjoying the sights around us and breathing in the crisp, fresh air. Our decision to sign for this tour has proven to be a good one.

A great day out 8 of us on the bus plus Nick the Driver/Guide and Chef who was very informative and made the trip very enjoyable both the weather and the barbie were excellent, with only eight of us having to get on and off at the various stops rather than a coach load made a massive difference.

This was a great day trip, even though the weather (typically for Fiordland) was damp and rainy. Nick produced a great barbecue at a time when the rain had stopped, and the whole day went very well. The rain made Milford Sound very dramatic, and the waterfalls were amazing. We met some keas at the Homer Tunnel, and also a weka. I would heartily recommend this BBQ Bus tour.

Smaller bus able to stop more frequently for photo ops also access an area that a large coach cannot. Loved the commentary, very informative without being excessive or patronising. Fab cruise as always. Perfect timing for pick up and drop off. A friendly more intimate way to do Milford.

What a great day, Chris our driver was informative, knowledgeable and funny, everything you need in a driver. Oh and did I mention he is a great chef, the BBQ was delicious, even the possum snags, yeh good one Chris. A big day for Chris, but he made our day memorable. Being on a smaller bus meant we stopped at places the coaches couldn't, which meant more photo opportunities, If you get the chance,do it !

This has to be the best milford sound daytrip we found. the guide/driver was very polite and friendly, and was always to keen to take pictures for you. there was only 5 of us in the minibus so had plenty of room and got to move alot faster than a traditional large coach tour. the places we stopped along the way for a walk or pictures was brilliant and the bbq lunch was beautiful (even by aussie standards!)the cruise itself was ok, we had really bad weather unfortunetly but was very accomodating none the less.. we had our own prebooked table and free tea/coffee for the cruise. i would thouroughly recommend this tour for any milford sound trip

nice leader, and relatively nice weather. problem is with milford sound itself, a bit under my expectations. highlight is the captain always tries to hit inside the water falls it's quite exciting if standing outside head of boat. And BBQ bus is lovely nice lunch as well. Becarful with the sandflies, very annoying.
