Can't find tour company we booked. Not this one. But it was the worst day ever. All day stuck on a bus. Would NEVER recommend it. We were with juze cruz. Absolutely awful..way too long. On way home stopped at some place to eat that was closing and had very little to sell and 3 buses. Staff were rude

we booked the bus ride to and from Milford sound and the Jucy boat trip on the sound. Bus was great, front row seats and glass roof. LONG bus ride, very scenic but suggest flying back, as its a long day and tiring bus on the way home. Bus driver was fantastic, even let us play in the snow on... More

Went in winter. Booked the glass roof bus. Couldn't see anything out of it for most of the trip, luckily could see out of it when were started driving from Te Anau. Rest of the trip is worth it. Cruise at the middle of the day makes it worth the drive wait. The driver of the bus was fantastic (I... More

We booked this tour via bookme after doing a lot of research on the tour operators in Milford Sound. The tour bus picked us up right outside where we were staying in Te Aneu and the guide (Simon) was really excellent. His knowledge of the area, geology and animals that live in the area was outstanding and really interesting. The... More

We booked the glass roof tour- the bus was comfy, the driver has some interesting knowledge to share and fantastic stops for photos - the boat trip at Milford was out of this world - amazing value for money - check out book me as they have great specials ;)

Through "book me" we organised the day tour from Te Anau to Milford Sound. The bus that picked us up was definitely not a luxury coach, but was comfortable and pleasant to ride in. The stops along the way were "stunning" Especially the Chasm !! Milford is spectacular, although due to rain and cloud, we couldn't see the tops, but... More

The commentary on the bus trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound by Eric, our driver, was one of the best parts of the trip. He gave lots of information about what we were seeing to enrich our understanding of the country. Great trip. Highly recommended.

There are many cruises around the world famous Milford Sound. Choose this one. I left from Te Anau using the transport service they provide. Far from this being a simple shuttle service to the boats, this 2 1/2 hour journey is part of the experience. I had the very friendly and knowledgeable Frank - who drove the whole way and... More

Recently took a day tour from Te Anau. Chose to travel and stay there rather than to take the trip from Queenstown. Well worth it in my opinion, as it shortened the day by around four hours. The whole experience was fantastic, with amazing scenery both on the drive down and then on the cruise. Our driver really added to... More
