In addition to Milford Sound itself, the bus drive to it was wonderful. The driver Debby's driving was smooth with detailed commentaries all the way to the ferry terminal. The ferry sailing and commentaries were very good. Lunch served hot with complimentary coffee. I enjoyed the fiords also along the way.
