It was really a great day and visiting either Milford or Doubtful Sound should definitely be on your itinerary when travelling to New Zealand. While our driver brought us safely to the sound and back, we could relax in the bus, take some amazing photos of the landscape and lateron enjoy coffee and a pita on the boat. I especially... More

Simon was our driver and he gave a great commentary on the way there and back. Simon was a former conservationist and knows tons about the flora and fauna. Ask him to tell the story of how he caught Kiwis. The boat part is run by Jucy and was also good.

We were picked up by a gentleman called Phil (OZ) from the station as there had been an issue with the original bus we were supposed to go on. The professionalism and way in which the situation was handled was superb! A lady called Shelly was supposed to be our driver, she was lovely, friendly and apologetic. We instead got... More

Milford Sound. Ah, it was great, huge, beautiful... I was stunned into silence in front of Milford Sound. We started from Queenstown at 7 AM, using tour bus. The bus driver hold tour guide. He explained many kind of informations, NZ's history, nature and so on. We stopped at Te Anau and had short time to look around Te Anau... More

My partner and i went on the eco milford day trip. I was not sure really what to expect. What we saw was beautiful. Every where you would look it was so pristine and pretty. No words can really describe it. But it was well worth the long drive. If you get travel sick i might suggest taking some travel... More

I've been to Te Anau and Milford several times in my life, but my friend has only been in NZ for a year so we decided to take a day trip with a guide since I only have very general local flora and fauna knowledge. What a great choice to pick this Ecotour. Our driver/guide was extremely knowledgable and had... More

We decided to do the Encounter Nature Cruise by Eco Tours. We were very happy with our choice as the boat got up close to some of the edges of the sounds. At one point I was even able to grab hold of some leaves overhanging the bow. We cruised up and back through the sound, our attention being drawn... More

We booked the “5 star experience” coach/cruise trip through Jucy Cruize, and the coach portion of the trip was handled by Eco Tours. Our coach driver was Nathan, who kept us informed about everything we saw while driving to Milford Sound while simultaneously navigating the twisty roads. I suspect it’s a little like herding cats to get a bunch of... More

Just completed our tour to Milford Sound with JUCY tours. Trip was fantastic, our guide driver, Ian Macintosh was outstanding. He had a natural grace in communicating his knowledge and passion for New Zealand and Queenstown in particular. Thank you for a brilliant day.
