About Us

Our Milford Sound Private Tour is a relaxed journey along the Milford Road, a historical and spectacular alpine drive from Lake Te Anau. We invite you to leave your vehicle in Te Anau and take advantage of the local knowledge and experience of our Te Anau-based driver guides. Our frequent photo stops and short walks combined with a comprehensive commentary and cruise on Milford Sound will ensure your Milford Sound experience is a memorable adventure.

In Milford Sound, we join a 1 hour and 45 Nature Cruise. There is lots of space inside and outside the vessel to view and take photographs as well as complimentary tea and coffee during the cruise. You will see towering peaks, outcrops where seals and penguins may be seen, waterfalls in a range of sizes and volume depending on recent rainfall. Occasionally, the local bottle-nosed dolphin pod will be sighted from the cruise.

The Milford Road is one of the most popular scenic routes in New Zealand and you need to see it first hand to see why.
