Our Milford Sound experience was by air, land, & sea! We began our day on a Coach through the magnificent Southern Alps, a beautiful drive. We met a wonderful 'kiwi' (New Zealander) onboard and hung out with him for the rest of the day. Ironically, he was wearing a t-shirt from our hometown! He was extremely knowledgeable about the vegetation and birds we saw en route. We even got to see a Kea, a mountain parrot that can inflict a nasty bite and are known to be quite destructive with shoes, cameras, etc. When we arrived in Milford Sound, we cruised the Tasman Sea, having lunch onboard. We returned by air, with marvelous sights of waterfalls below.
