We went out with Fiordland Tours based on the excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor, and were glad that we did. You're in a relatively small group. Because of the self-selection of who chooses this tour company, we liked everyone in our group. The van was...More

We chose Fiordland Tours after reading the reviews on trip advisor (not sure I’ve ever seen anything so well rated!), and we certainly weren’t disappointed! Small group, comfy bus, incredibly knowledgable and passionate guide, delicious scones. We even had perfect weather! We’d like to thank...More

We took the early tour with 8:00AM pickup. I recommend that time. Fiordland Tours operates small vans - 16 passenger rather than the big 40-45 person buses you see with other companies. Still big windows for the views, so no downside there. Contributes to better...More

This is a lovely tour along to Milford Sound from Te Anau. It’s much nicer than driving yourself. The guide is very knowledgeable, there are plenty of stops and you get plenty of time there. The cruise itself is also lovely. Would recommend.

I like doing the driving myself, but this time it was a great decision to hand the driving off to Ray. Ray made the trip to Milford Sound so much more enjoyable. My wife and I were picked up in a new, very comfortable bus...More

We wanted to do the Milford Sound tour but there were so many tour groups to choose from. A random conversation with a couple staying at our lodge encouraged us to book with this small but engaging tour company. They had so enjoyed it. They...More

My understanding is no as their buses depart solely from Te Anau. Leaving from Queenstown adds four hours round trip to the drive, making for a very long day.
