November -  5 stars  "VIP Milford is the Best"

From the moment Justin picked us up at 8am at the Te Anau Kiwi Holiday Park where we were staying until he dropped us back at 4pm, we were given the best service that you could hope for and VIP Milford made it a day to remember! We were picked up in a very comfortable Sprinter Van with comfortable leather seats and on the trip to Milford Sound we were given a bit of local history and a great commentary about the places we were travelling through. We made a number of stops along the way for photographs at notable places like mirror lake, the chasm, each side of the Homer Tunnel and the great toilet facilities at Knobs Pass along with many others. At Milford Sound Justin picked up our tickets for us and showed us where to wait to board our buffet lunch cruise on Real Journeys Milford Sovereign on which we had a reserved table, but were free to move around. We then got back on the bus and were taken back to Te Anau with a few stops Along the way. Thank you VIP Milford for a wonderful day. I have no hesitation in recommending VIP Milford to anyone!!!

 

October - 5 stars "Travel in Style"

This beats driving the 2 hour plus drive yourself. A beautifully fitted out Mercedes bus, with knowledgeable commentary provided by the driver; and enough stops for the photographers among us.The Milford Sound boat trip was great also, just a bit disappointed with the supplied lunch, which consisted mainly of Asian style food which was only warm.
Photos should be great though.

 

15th October- 5 stars “VIP by name, VIP by nature - treat yourself !”

We planned to travel to Milford on a day when the weather was good, however the day we chose had a higher risk of avalanche. The road was closed 'until midday at the latest' according to the official NZ website.
Justin was our driver for the day and he met us all at 08:00 as planned and informed us of the situation, and that we would reconvene at 09:00 to assess the situation.
Back at 09:00 and we were off, with the assurance that if we got to the gates and they were closed for the day we would get a full refund.
We made it through as the avalanche risk was reduced. No delay and no waiting - again underlines why you should choose a smaller provider.
The trip was excellent, with detailed and informative commentary from Justin. He had specific local knowledge and could respond to questions from the small group. This is the advantage of travelling with a local company and in a small luxury vehicle.
Our trip could be adapted as circumstances allowed - in our case we had more time to look at the specific attractions on route to Milford Sound. Justin had already re-assigned our booking for the cruise and gave us advice on the sights.
The trip back could be altered to ensure we arrived back at Top 10 around 17:00 which again shows the flexibility of using a small, custom service, rather than the big coach providers.
Choose VIP, they are excellent, professional, flexible. Justin, sir, you are a diamond !

 

October- 5 stars “Awesome tour for the family”​

Easiest tour i dealt with while in the south island. From booking right through to pickup and return. The staff are super friendly and very great with young familys like ours. The quide makes sure you stop and see and get lots of great photos along the way to and from milford sound. His knowledge and delivery is second to none. When booking if you have a top 10 card it will get you a huge discount making this tour the best value on the market. And being based out of the te anau top 10 caravan park makes it even easier. Tour includes transport to and from, great photo opps and the cruise with buffet lunch.

 

October- 5 stars “Great trip to Milford!”​

Had a fantastic day trip to Milford with Justin the VIP driver. We were picked up from our accommodation right on time. Justin was knowledgable about the area, and we stopped several places along the way for photos. We never felt rushed at all. The bus was comfortable to ride in. The boat trip was amazing and the buffet lunch was very nice! Thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to see Milford Sound!

 

September- 5 stars “Highly recommend!! ”​

We had the best day out in Milford with VIP Milford. Our guide Justin was very knowledgable and told us lots of interesting facts along the way. We made several photostops. The cruise was super. The boat was pretty much empty, we left at 11am. So long before the big crowded buses from QT arrived. The lunch buffet was good and offered food for everyone. A great way to see Milford!

August- 5 stars “Great Day”

We booked this as a nice day away from Queenstown with family and friends that were over from the UK. Dave was a great driver, and his knowledge and information was really interesting. The stops were beautiful, and were a nice way to stretch our legs along the way. The Cruise was lovely too, and the food was delicious. A great day. We will be back, and will recommend to others. Thank you!!!

 

August- 5 stars “Excellent”

We booked this tour from the UK and booking was simple online. The bus (18 seater) picked us up on time from our accommodation and the drive to Milford Sound was comfortable. David our tour guide was excellent and he gave a running commentary along the route, we also stopped at points of interest along the way which was a good opportunity to stretch your legs and take some photos.

 

August- 5 stars “Private Style Tour”

We took the VIP tour with only one other couple - which was great timing since we arrived in Te Anu in winter. Our tour guide David was awesome - super knowledgable about not only Milford Sound, the Fjordland park and the tunnel, but also about the Te Anu surrounding area. It was an intimate tour and a great way to have a bit more freedom for stops and questions than a large tour bus. Plus the van was very comfortable! And the cost was similar to that of the large buses so it was a nice option to upgrade.
