Great value for money. We were picked up at our accomodation in Te Anau and travelled to Milford sound. Our driver Simon was passionate and extremely informative about the amazing region. The weather was very kind to us and we saw some amazing scenery. The cruise was a highlight in the awesome place and lunch pita pit was very yummy.... More

We were slightly apprehensive about the long bus journey from Queenstown and how harsh it would be on our parents who aren't used to long bus journeys. We were in for a pleasant surprise! Excellent coach, very roomy seats with leg space, and stops every hour to stretch ourselves out. The highlight of the tour however was our driver/guide Shelly.... More

I thought eco stood for ecosystem, silly me. It stood for economical. The reason i chose this and did not drive myself from Te Anau to Milford Sound was, I read somewhere that the drive was one of the most challenging in South Island. In reality, the drive is no more difficult than what I had already experienced. The bus... More

My family and I travelled with Eco Tours to Milford sound. Our guide, Barbar was fantastic - providing us with plenty of information about the region, the history and making us feel relaxed on the long journey. He knew some good spots to stop along the way and see the beautiful scenery as we made our way to the Milford... More

We went from Te Anau to Milford sound with Eco tours and it was such an amazing day out! Our bus driver Frank was great and we stopped off at multiple stops on the way and way back to take photos and go on short walks. The cruise was incredible, the scenery, dolphins and fur seals just fantastic! :)

We booked this tour on bookme.co.nz. Use it if you are looking for good prices on great tourist activities! We were picked up in Te Anau, and rode from there to Milford Sound. We took the Jucy Cruise line through Milford Sound, which was an awesome experience with incredible views of the fjord. The cruise takes you all the way... More

The tour is run well to time considering how long the drive is from Queenstown and back, be prepared for that. We booked onto this as a family with limited time on our holiday so were really excited to be seeing Milford. Unfortunately we got the 1 day of rain out of weeks of beautiful weather, but we wouldn't change... More

The scenery was excellent, the cruise was superb, and the lunch passed the mustard. However, what makes this trip extraordinary was the wonderful driver Shelley, who performed the driving, the tour guide, and the social glue so well that we enjoyed the long drive from Queenstown to Milford and back without even noticing it. Our kudo to Shelley. (Our trip... More

We went to Milford Sound with ECO Tours. It was really great, the scenery was magnificent and our bus driver was an excellent guide, humorous and informative. He explained all about the history of fiords and sounds and the waterfalls and the Homer Tunnel and everything else. The tour cost 99 NZD and it was definitely worth the money. There... More
