We were so lucky .. the day was perfect, completely clear blue skies and almost without wind ... could not have been more beautiful. The tourist facilities were pretty good, our ship was expertly maneuvered to give us maximum viewing opportunities. Could not have been better .. apart from ending too soon!

You can read all about it anywhere. We took the morning 2 hour cruise and had a boat that was no more than 10% full...to early for the busses from Queenstown. We went with "Real Adventures". We got a full on sunny day. (Special because it rains here 2 out of 3 days).
Absolutely memorizing. You cannot do the South Island and miss this.
Ps the drive in is spectacular.

Trip to Milford Sound (from Christchurch), we did it by bus because we hadn't enough time to do it by ourselves. Nice driver with excellent knowledge of the area and his country.
Trip to Milford Sound, included boat trip. Another neat day, lovely trip, very long day, driver got a bit stressed as schedule was tight.
