Great Way to do Milford Sound

We had the best day out despite the weather! Our driver was very nice and knowledgeable, providing interesting anecdotes and stopping at noteworthy and picturesque locations along the way. The cruise was incredible and we were so please we chose Mitre Peak Cruises as we went further than the other cruises and the smaller size felt a lot more personal and intimate. It’s a big day but it was so worth it!

Great sceneries, long journey

Started off early morning from Queenstown and making stops at Te anau, Eglinton Valley, Mirror Lakes, did a 20min Chasm walkway and finally the Milford sound. Mitre peak cruise is a smaller cruise and lesser crowd bringing us closer to the waterfall and the wildlife (seals). Pauline is a friendly and helpful guide who takes good care of us. Though the journey is long but worth it!

Highlight of a holiday

Yes it's an early start but it is so worth it for the whole day experience! There are multiple stops along the way in beautiful locations, driver was friendly and knowledgable. Still don't know how they cope with such big trips every day AND answering questions and telling stories/facts the whole way. Milford sound truly is like nothing else I've ever seen before. Must do!

Mitre peak

Great tour. Although the driver told us that she was speeding to make up time, which I thought was extremely dangerous

Mitre Peak tours

Faith and I had an amazing time, thank you so much! Pauline was so lovely and very knowledgeable. We loved the stops to take photos - like stepping back in time to an ancient wonderland. The cruise was fantastic - loved the talk and information from Ryan about his important conservation work (you should mention that people should take cash to buy his jewellery, which supports the conservation efforts). Loved it, would highly recommend.
