We had an amazing trip to Milford Sound with Altitude Tours and our tour guide, Erik. We were picked up promptly at our allocated time and the communication leading up to our tour was easy and effective. The drive was absolutely beautiful and Erik did an amazing job providing a ton of information for the entire trip! He is super passionate, knowledgeable, and spirited. He had to drive us 10 hours total but we felt extremely safe the whole way, and he always had a smile on his face and was checking in on us. He really made the journey enjoyful and we learned more on this tour than all our other tours combined. The drive is long but it’s incredibly beautiful and we all looked out the window the whole time. Milford Sound and the cruise company Altitude Tours partners with is great and we appreciated having a smaller, less crowded boat. Overall, we’d really recommend Altitude Tours and their smaller glass sprinter van tour option. It made a huge difference to be in a small group in a smaller van; the people on the big buses didn’t look nearly as happy or comfortable. We appreciated being on a smaller tour with a locally-owned company and we highly recommend everyone book with Altitude, and see if you can request Erik as your guide!
