You will be in a small bus most of the time, but you'll definitely not get bored, because you will be amazed by the sights during the journey. The driver was Frank, he was very friendly, humorous and knowledgable. We went during the winter time, so we got to go through the old forest, empty canyon carved out by the... More

From the minute we were picked up to the minute we were dropped off the trip was great!! Coach driver was knowledgable and stopped at great areas of interest. Boat was modern and not overcrowded. Would recommend coaching in so you can take in the scenery on the road in (rivals the sounds themselves)

We opted for the eco tours tour to Milford Sound even though the person at the tourist center who helped us said the only difference was that ours included lunch and had a bit nicer bus. You can purchase lunch once yu get to Milford, and there was one stop mid way to have a snack and a drink, but... More

Picked up exactly on time. Driver Frank was very knowledgeable. Weather was bad but cleared up in the mountains where the scenery was superb. Especially loved the Keas in the alpine carparks. Milford cruise was very nice but enjoyed the drive in more. Great value for $99 and a whole days entertainment. A must do when visiting the south island.

Spent a whole day on a bus being constantly told we were running behind time and how lucky we were that the roads were open but not enough time to stop at all locations they would normally stop at for views and photos. Got there half hour early. Captain of boat sounded incredibly bored. Buffet lunch was nice on board.... More

Our driver was excellent, giving us great information along the long drive. The scenery along the way is the most beautiful I have ever seen with snow covered mountains, beautiful lakes, and rolling green hills. This tour stops many times for restroom breaks and even for photo opportunites. The roads have many curves and it very nice to have someone... More

- To begin with, the pick up location that we were given was precise and we waited at the intersection of the two streets as advised. The bus, however, pulled into a different location at a different intersection, and couldn't locate us, so our hotel had to call us twice (international calling rates applied) to let us know where our...

We got picked up straight from our accommodation at 8.45 by our driver Simon. The drive from Te Anau to Milford Sound took around 1.30 hours and along the way we stopped at a number of locations including Mirror Lakes and Eglington Valley. For us the drive to and from the cruise was just as good as going on the... More

My partner and I went on the Eco-jucy Milford bus tour yesterday. Our driver Oz was a star. His knowledge of the area and stories were excellent and informative. The information was delivered in a way that all could understand and enjoy. He was helpful with everyone's needs and even played a little game on the drive from which a... More

We were picked up from and delivered back to our accommodation in Te Anau. On the drive to and from Milford Sound our driver told us a lot of interesting information about the area, and stopped off at some beautiful places. The cruise on Milford Sound was good with a light lunch included in the price, plus free tea/coffee. I... More
