    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with morning pickup in Te Anau or Manapour and a scenic drive to Milford Sound.

    Stop first at Te Anau Downs and view the sheltered harbor, Bluegum Bay, which sits opposite the Middle Fiord, the starting point for the Milford Track. Then, take in views of the Earl and Livingston Mountains at Eglinton Valley.

    Take a short stroll along a boardwalk at Mirror Lakes to see beech forest and wetland pools. The 45th South Parallel marks the halfway point between the equator and the South Pole. 

    Stop next at Cascade Creek, then the Hollyford Lookout, which overlooks the Hollyford Valley and Darren Mountains. Have the option to do the walk to Marian Cascade, which tumbles from Lake Marian before pulling into Gunn’s Camp for morning tea, followed by the historic museum and gift shop.

    Get photo ops at Fall’s Creek and Monkey Creek, and if time allows, a quick walk leads to a point with views of the Gertrude Valley. Look for kea sightings at the east portal of the 4,166 foot (1,270 meter) long Homer Tunnel and pass through the scenic Cleddau Valley. During the last part of the journey to Milford Sound, take a short walk to The Chasm, rock formations that make up a 72-foot (22-meter) deep and narrow ravine cut by the Cleddau River.

    Snap photos of Mt. Tutoko, the highest mountain in Fiordland, Tutoko Bridge, and Mt. Tutoko as a backdrop. Then arrive at the departure point for your cruise. Enjoy a cruise on Milford Sound, keeping an eye out for dolphins, seals, and the Fiordland crested penguin.

    Your tour ends with return to your accommodation.

    Best tour I have experienced. Coach driver (Jonathon) was very helpful going off the track to visit interesting places on the way. Boat cruise was just as good as was the weather.

    This is a small group tour, so it offers a more personal interaction with the tour guide, who for us was Jono. You can tell a person who is just doing his job or a person who embraces their work, and here is where Jono fits the bill. A very knowledgeable and approachable person

    Had a great small group trip with Jamie our guide. I’m so glad we took the full day option. It’s quite a long drive if you are only doing a 2 hr cruise. We stopped at lots of interesting places and did short walks. Jamie was informative and professional. Would highly recommend.

    We didn't feel comfortable driving ourselves as the track conditions can be quite challenging and the roads will be closed from time to time. So we made a last minute decision and booked the return trip to Milford Sounds. Pickup was 7:45 right in front of our hotel in Te Anau
