I did the Doubtful Sound overnight trip with Real Journeys recently. I have lived in Queenstown for 12 years and learnt so much about the area with the informative narrative provided by the coach drivers and guides. OK, firstly, the weather was very wet and visibility was not that great, but it was still a great trip. Immediately, the coach... 更多
We were so pleased that our B&B hostess in Te Anau said to go on the overnight cruise with Fiordland Expiditions Company when I rang her to book accommodation several months before.our visit. Her comments were so right, it became a personalised, relaxed day & a half with only 8 of us & a crew of 2. Firstly Mandy who... 更多
We took a seaplane flypast of Doubtful and the ride left no doubt in our minds regarding the beauty of this place. The elevated view gave a complete picture of the beauty and serenity of the sound. The views of lakes perched on mountain tops with clear, still water of the fiords were added bonus. It was amazing to see... 更多
Picked up & dropped from our hotel. Long day but good value apart from the packed lunch provided. Boat trip across the lake then coach ride over the mountain & boat trip across the sound to the sea.
If you dont do anything else in the south of South Island, do the Doubtful Sound tour. Preferably overnight. An awesome, breathtaking experience. Such beauty and natural wonder. Time flew and we were amazed at what we saw around every turn. Take plenty of memory cards for your camera....
We've wanted to make this trip for many years. It didn't disappoint, though whether it was entirely what we'd imagined in advance is another thing. The cruise itself is slickly managed by the Real Journeys staff. Perhaps that makes it a little impersonal, though there was no fault to find with the service. The food wasn't too exciting, but considering... 更多
We chose to go with Go Orange for our trip to Doubtful Sound as they have the smallest boat out of all the tour operators, and lucky for us it was only half full! This is a mega day, starting with a bus transfer to Manapouri and a boat journey accross the lake. Then a coach trip over the Wilmot... 更多
This was a fantastic experience travelling from Manapouri to Doubtful Sound. The Wilmott pass is breathtaking and the sheer beauty of the sound itself was incredible, we even saw crested penguins swimming in the sound! A fantastic day out. We had a perfect day weather wise and managed to get out yo the Tasman Seas. Real Journeys run a great... 更多
Doubtful Sound is a much better option compared to Milford Sound. So if you can take only one cruise, consider choosing Doubtful Sound. However, the scenery when driving from Te Anau to Milford Sound is exceptional-- so skip the cruise but do take the road trip.
It was a rainy yet beautiful and awe inspiring day for for our adventure. Doubtful Sound was imposing and dramatic in a bluesy-moody way. Fog-shrouded magnificence. The Real Journeys Wilderness Cruise out of Manipouri was two ferry boat rides and an overland bus between the two. All very clean, comfortable and professional rides. We were able to hop off the... 更多
The day of our excursion to Doubtful Sound (April 13th), we woke up to a blinding snowstorm. We were encouraged to learn that Real Journeys was ready for every eventuality. Our shuttle picked us up at our B&B in Te Anau precisely on time. The snow let up half way to Lake Manapouri, and we were ready for an on... 更多
This was absolutely phenomenal loved every second of it well worth it had a wonderful day! From leaving the docking area then busing it through mountains then hoping on the big cat touring out into the Tasman sea and back again the scenery was awe inspiring and took some amazing photos! This trip is one of my highlights of our... 更多
Following on from a previous review it should really be pointed out that JEN on board Sothern Secret is an absolute powerhouse...Prepared lunch prior to our arrival Crayfish, venison ( Shot recently by Clint ), salads, fish pasta bake teas and coffees then it was a cheese board for afternoon tea, This led onto fishing near dusk where we all... 更多
Doubtful Sound is without doubt a must-do experience when in the south west of New Zealand's South Island. It's much bigger than Milford Sound and receives a fraction of the visitors, while wildlife and stunning scenery are ubiquitous. The journey there from Manapouri is also breathtaking, and all of this justifies the higher outlay when compared with a Milford Sound... 更多
