        Had the most amazing day with Nigel and Lola the Tesla! We absolutely loved our trip to the Milford Sounds. We thought the Milford Cruise would be the highlight but it turned out to be the journey/road stops to and from the Sounds. Communication from the beginning was very precise and efficient and pick up was right on time. Riding privately in the Tesla was definitely a highlight in comparison to doing a bus tour with others. The ride was so comfortable, very awesome and safe driving and you get to really explore the area and know all the background history and information from a true local. Nigel made a huge effort to ensure we had the best day! We enjoyed all the commentary, the stops to places and perfect picture spots we would never have seen if we drove ourselves or took a public tour, and the comfort stops needed along the way. I can’t say enough about how amazing and how worth it this tour was and we have no regrets booking Envy Experiences tour. We will definitely let everyone know about exceptional service and the funnest day you could ask for. If you’re thinking of booking this trip, not only will you be supporting a local family run business but you’re guaranteed to have the best day! Thank you Nigel

        What a great day we had - I love sharing Fiordland with customers and showing a few spots that most go straight past. Thanks for coming with us. Nigel

        My wife & I booked this private tour as we wanted to support a local business & do a tour with a point of difference.
        We both had an great day out & thoroughly recommend this tour as Nigel was a great friendly local host who was able to tell us a lot about the area.
        The car ride in Nigel's Tesla was a very comfortable ride.
        This tour has many great photo stops on the way to Milford Sound.
        The tour also includes a boat cruise on the Milford Sound with Cruise Milford.
        We have great memories of this enjoyable trip as it was one of the highlights of our holiday.

        I never thought I’d be able to do a private tour of Milford Sound, I thought it would be a crowded nosy bus for us. But when I discovered Envy Tours and how affordable it was, I jumped at the chance. It truely was a dream come true.

        My 8 year old daughter was beyond excited that we were going to be travelling around in Batman’s car (a Tesla) but I was more excited about the heated seats and sky roof so I could see all angles of this majestic part of the world.

        The day we went was a cold rainy day but I actually think it was exactly what made it even more memorable. The drive to Milford Sound was breathtaking. Nigel (the best tour guide with so much local knowledge) stopped at places only locals would know about. One stop in particular- I literally felt the 7 year old little girl in me came out as I walked through the Enchanted Forest! My daughter and I were looking for fairies and pixies. It is definitely where the Tooth-fairy lives.

        Nigel got the portable fire going at one stop to make us morning tea of hot chocolate, hot fresh coffee and delicious cakes/pastries. Both my daughter and I have food allergies/coeliac but this wasn’t an issue for Nigel as he catered to this which was fabulous (as I hadn’t eaten anything so delicious for a while)

        When we arrived at Milford Sound, we boarded our 2 hours boat tour which was next level. Despite the rain, this place is certainly not to be missed. The water falls were in full flow and the mist was spectacular. We even had a pool of dolphins hang out and play by our boat for a while. It was fabulous. When the boat goes right up to one of the waterfalls, it’s a great chance to get outside and stand under it. So much fun but bring your rain coat/wet weather gear even if it’s not a rainy day.

        The drive back to Te Anau was so relaxing and cosy with the heated seats and blankets. My daughter was asleep within minutes and I continued to enjoy the landscape which looked different from the drive in as the weather which changed what we saw. I was totally in my element.

        Overall, this was my absolute highlight of our time in the South Island. Being able to travel in a Covid safe, private car with impeccable comfort not to mention the knowledge Nigel shares with you along the way, was truely a bucket list ticker! Envy Tours gets a 10 out of 10 from me and my daughter! Don’t even question whether you should do this tour or not, just go for it! Thanks Nigel, you made amazing memories for me and my baby girl! Thank you. 🙏

        Fantastic day. Would recommend to anybody— especially people like myself who usually balk at the idea of tours! Getting around in a Tesla really is an experience and a must for anyone that has an affinity for technology!
        Nigel is a true gent—friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He also pointed out many day tramps along the way to Milford that—even as an avid kiwi tramper— I’d never heard of. Already planning our next sojourn to Fiordland so we can take these in.
        Many thanks, Nigel

        Many thanks for coming with us. It was great to be able to share some of our local knowledge and point out options for your future visits to Fiordland. We live in a special place and you got to see Milford Sound as it will never be again. You almost had it to yourself.

        All the previoys reviews posted are 100% correct in what is delivered by Nigel.
        It was a wonderful day with many points of interest pointed out and with his local knowledge you receive an in depth commentary on the area.
        If you want to support a local this is one attraction you must do.
        The boat cruise is with Cruise Milford which is a local owned and operated venture and provides a 5 star experience also.
        Would reccommend this trip to anyone. Many thanks Nigel for a wonderful day, one we will not forget.

        Great experience. Higly recommended.From the very first moment you feel like a VIP. The guide gives you a special attention,telles itnteresting stories about the region stops by sight seeing atractions.

        The coffie break is very special.
        You will be guided to the boat and be ensured of the best places for the cruise.
        Compering to other tour operators, you definitely get the best price - quality experience.
        Mike,thank you for a wonderful day on the 14th February.

        What a great day! From the moment our 10 year old's mouth dropped when he realised we were going in a Tesla, to stopping fellow travellers in their tracks when the doors went up, this was the best way to go to Milford Sound. Nigel is a fabulous and chilled host who loves showing off his backyard and taking you to secret spots and telling great stories. And then there's the views... Highly recommended if you want to have the perfect trip to Milford Sound,

        BEST DECISION EVER! We only had one day to 'Do Milford' and we wanted it to be a great experience, and thanks to Nigel it was amazing. I'm not a car buff but even I was impressed by the luxury and drive that we got to enjoy in the Tesla. Having the ability to stop where and when you want was a huge drawcard to us over taking a bus tour, and Nigel's local knowledge and experience really made for a great expereince. Not only do you get to 'Do Milford' in style but you also get a day to remember. We loved stopping by the river to enjoy a freshly brewed hot chocolate which Nigel boiled up using a thermette (our new favourite thing!). The cruise was also intimate and we felt lucky to be on one of the smaller vessels rather than having to battle with the crowds. How great to have a day that felt private and relaxed in such a busy tourist hot spot! My husband and I can't recommend this tour enough.

        Thanks you so much for coming with us and allowing us to share our special part of the world with you both. Even in the pouring rain, the scenery speaks for itself. Do come back to Fiordland in the future. Thanks Nigel

        Nigel was a fantastic host for our day exploring the area. He is very knowledgeable and ensured we had lots of stops to take in the scenery along the way to Milford Sound.
        Lola (the Tesla) provided a very comfortable journey, very cool features, didn’t miss any of the scenery due to the large windows even overhead!
        Would highly recommend to others, great way to see the area.
        Thanks Nigel for a great day!

        We absolutely enjoyed our day out with Envy Experiences to Milford, Nigel is a fantastic Host and totally looked after us all day. We found the trip in and out in his Tesla x was a fantastic experience, wow the car is so different and Nigel truly knew how to drive it. He even boiled up water in his thermette and provided a muffin for morning tea at a camping spot along the way. The Cruise was a full 2 hours with a Private Tour company and was very enjoyable indeed with a great crew. Would totally recommend Nigel and Envy Tours to everyone we know that is visitng the area.
