Our guided tour and cruise of Milford Sound will provide you with an experience to remember. Commentary from our passionate guides will keep you entertained & engaged as you travel through one of New Zealand’s most pristine landscapes, towards the country’s tourism jewel, Piopiotahi/Milford Sound.

Allowing for plenty of scenic stops along the way, have your camera at the ready as you experience the magical beauty of some of this area’s top locations, such as Eglinton Valley & Mirror Lakes. Culminating the adventure is a 1 hour 45 minute Milford Sound cruise, where sheer cliffs rise dramatically from the pristine waters, and majestic waterfalls cascade from heights that seem to touch the heavens—a surreal experience that etches the beauty of Fiordland into memory, with chances to spot fur seals, dolphins and even whales!

What others are saying

"Our group of 7 (including 5 kids) used DNA Tours to get to The Remarkables and back for 4 days straight. The service was excellent. We were picked up from our accommodation each morning at the front door and enjoyed a very pleasant drive to the snow each day. Our driver Aaron was very friendly, always on time and a safe driver. It was a very clean and comfortable Mercedes van and we would recommend DNA Tours to anyone looking for a better way to get the mountain !"
