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!

*Pickups from Glenorchy, Arthurs Point or Arrowtown can be arranged for an extra fee.


Mirror Lakes, nestled on the journey to Milford Sound, present a breathtaking reflection of the surrounding snow-capped peaks and lush forests. The Eglinton Valley, with its expansive meadows and towering mountains, serves as a captivating interlude, inviting travelers to immerse themselves in the grandeur of untouched wilderness.

What others are saying

''We required a last-minute private tour out to Milford Sound for our hotel guests on a busy Queenstown weekend. They were booked to fly out to Milford but the weather suddenly turned and all flights were cancelled. After many inquiries and no luck with other companies, David from DNA Tours got in touch and organized not only a private tour but managed to book our guests on the last boat cruise out for the day. They were very grateful and had a spectacular day out with David, who happened to step up on his day off to give them one of the most memorable experiences on their visit to Queenstown! We were blown away by the DNA Tours Team’s professionalism and quality of service and are highly recommended by us for their services''. Hulbert House - Queenstown
