    Had a great trip to Milford Sound with Jucy. The bus was comfortable and Robbie, our driver/guide, friendly, knowledgeable and a very safe driver. Really worthwhile paying extra for the front seats: the views were astonishing during the entire trip. The ferry trip was also great

    There are not many people on the vessel and a nice upper deck with a leather couch. The buffer lunch is optional.

    Go with another company or drive yourself. Brendan our bus driver turned up late to pick us up, leaving us in the freezing cold. If you like bad jokes and average commentary and being told to take your shirt off to “give the boys a thrill” then maybe the bus drivers

    Hi Heather, Thanks for joining our JUCY coach tour to Milford Sound, and for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It's really important for us to hear constructive feedback, both good and bad, so that we can continue to improve our service. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy our trip with Brendan. It's really surprising, as Brendan has always received rave review from our guests, and is extremely popular with both customers and crew alike. Heavy snowfalls can occur on the Milford Road during winter, and these days are managed fantastically by Downer's Road Crew, who ensure the safety of the thousands of people travelling this road on a daily basis. On the day in question, from the information in their report, it seemed likely that the road would open by early afternoon, and so we decided to give our guests to give a chance to see Milford on that day. This unfortunately did not happen at this time, and so the coach turned back to Queenstown late. The road did eventually open later in the afternoon, and so our staff returned to work after hours to put on an extra cruise for any guests (not just our JUCY Cruise customers) that could afford to wait and make it through once the road had opened so that they were not disappointed. Any guests who did not make it to Milford Sound that day were given a full refund, as are all guests when there is a road closure. The most dangerous parts of the road are closed to vehicles during avalanche risk, and under no circumstances are any vehicles allowed to pass through when there is potential for danger. Safety is of the utmost importance to us, Downer's Road crew, and all other Milford Sound operators. To say we are a company who doesn't prioritise the safety of our customers, nor do we refund guests during road closures is both unfair, and untrue. On a more positive note, we are glad that you enjoyed the incredible scenery of Milford Sound on board the cruise. It truly is one of the most magical parts of New Zealand, if not the world! Enjoy the rest of your trip, and safe onward travels, Kind regards, Kate

    My wife & I cruised Milford Sound aboard the Gem of the Sounds. Fantastic experience. Captain Rob does a very informative & funny commentary, while also getting us up close to all the attractions. Add to that the splendid service from his crew & you are on a sure fire winner
