Fantastic day out with magnificent scenery-forecast rain but the Sound had sunny blue skies. Smallish coach driven by Simon the botanist-funny and supremely knowledgeable followed by a perfect catamaran cruise with so much space the boat felt empty! When I return I will

First of all, starting in Te Anau vs Queenstown is so worth it! It cuts 4-5 hours off your trip and puts you in Milford Sound ahead of the crowd. We both agree that this tour was the highlight of our 2 week NZ trip. Simon was fantastic! He was warm and friendly and has an

Hi Meg, Thanks for taking our JUCY Zest to Milford Sound, and for sharing this wonderful review with us. Sounds like an epic day in one of the most epic spots in New Zealand ! Top tip to start in Te Anau; besides being a beautiful town, it is the Gateway to Fiordland and so starting your journey here takes a few hours off a big day. We are so thrilled you enjoyed having Simon as your guide. He is extremely popular with our guests, and it's pretty easy to see why! Thank you so much for your kind recommendation, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your New Zealand trip! Best, Kate

Starting from Te Anau rather than Queenstown is a must. For one thing, it cuts five hours of boring drive out of your day, leaving you with seven hours of jaw-dropping scenery there and back. Secondly, it puts you on the sound at least 2 hours before the hordes from Qtown. The

Hi Bruce, Thanks for joining our JUCY Zest tour to Milford Sound, and for sharing your super feedback with us. We couldn't agree more! The day trip from Te Anau is the ideal way to visit Milford with less driving time, a seasoned guide at the wheel and right ahead of the Queenstown rush. What's not to love! It's pretty much all seasons in one day in the Fiordland National Park; beautiful sunshine to mist and rain and back again; all within a few kms :-) Thank you once more for choosing JUCY, and we hope to see you in Milford Sound again soon, Best, Kate

Hey Pints (great name! We love pints!), Thanks for joining our JUCY Zest tour to Milford Sound and for sharing this lovely review. You will be hard pushed to find a driver who knows more about Fiordland than Frank so we are delighted to hear you were WOWed by his extensive list of fascinating facts. We are incredibly lucky to have him amongst our fabulous crew of talented driver guides. That is great news that you found the trip to be worth the money too, as we pride ourselves on well priced affordable yet great quality tours and experiences. Thank you so much for your recommendation, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in Aotearoa, Best, Kate

We had a fantastic day out thanks to Jucy Cruise. Our driver Simon was helpful, informative and funny (and patient despite us being late for pickup!) He clearly had a good knowledge of the area and would name mountain ranges, geological formations, flora and fauna for our

Hi Andrew, Thanks for joining our JUCY Zest day tour to Milford Sound, and for taking the time to share your wonderful feedback with us. So thrilled to hear you had such a ball on your JUCY tour! It's pretty to hard to have anything BUT the best day when Simon is your guide. His extent of local knowledge is incredible; not to mention eagle eyes for spotting some of Fiordland's rarest wildlife. Sorry to hear our Skippers' sometimes questionable (!) jokes were not to your taste, but glad to hear the large lunch more than made up for it. We are just delighted that we succeeded in making magical Milford Sound the highlight of your trip! Thanks again for joining us, and enjoy the rest of your New Zealand tour, Best, Kate
