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

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

We were collected from our accommodation at the time agreed. Our driver, Frank, was very welcoming and full of fascinating facts and information about everything along our journey from Te Anau to Milford Sound. He pulled in when possible, allowing us to have a wander and take

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

A bit upset at Juicy Tour which told us the bus couldn't pick us up at the place we were staying and that we had to go wait for it in town. We left early to go to the town and wait for the bus there, and once aboard, were very surprised when the bus did stop in front of our

Hi Alice, Thanks for joining our JUCY day tour to Milford Sound, and for taking the time to share your lovely feedback with us. I'm sorry to hear that your tour didn't get off to the best start, and that you weren't collected from your accommodation. If you could please email your booking details to feedback@jucycruise.co.nz we can certainly look into this to ensure the confusion does not arise again. Pick up aside, we are thrilled that you enjoyed the trip! We truly believe that Milford Sound is beautiful no matter what the weather, which is a good thing as it's pretty common to experience all four seasons in one day ;-) Thank you again for joining our tour, and for your honest feedback, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your New Zealand trip, Best, Kate
