Our day tour to Milford Sound with Real Journeys started with a three-hour bus ride. That was an amazing trip in itself. Lots of mountains, valleys, rivers, and one really long tunnel that’s one way at a time. We got several opportunities to get out and take photos. The bus itself was well designed. The roof is mostly glass, so you can see the mountain tops through it.
The sound itself was aquamarine water, green and gray cliffs, and rugged snow-capped mountains, including a glacier. We were again very lucky with the weather. Not a cloud in the sky, in a place that gets 400 inches of rain a year.
