Milford sounds tour

This was a very good tour. The day started with our driver picking us up from our hotel. 10 minutes into the trip we were told there was a problem with the bus and we will be changing buses. The change over was quick and once we were on our way our driver was very knowledgable . He stop at some very scenic spots before we got to Milford sounds . The only negative I have is that it was a very long day.

Thank-you for your excellent comments. Sam does an excellent job and enjoys showing New Zealand to visitor. It's not all about the beautiful destination, but the journey through New Zealand and an insight into the culture and lifestyle of our country. Team, Milford Sound Select.

Cowboy is the man!

There were only 3 passengers on my tour, but thanks to Cowboy we had a fun filled, adventurous and awesome day. We were able to enjoy a few extra stops, and still stay ahead of the "opposition", lol. He is simply superb at his job, yes, even with the terrible puns, haha. Very informative in every aspect, and a great storyteller. The boat cruise wasn't quite as exciting as I'd hoped, but it was still beautiful, and the bus ride more than made up for it! Would definitely recommend this tour to friends, so much breathtaking scenery in one day, and too many photo opportunities.

Food for purchase ran out in ferry

There was only one sandwich left (which didn’t look fresh) for purchase on board and everyone who did not pre-order food or brought food with them was left eating instant noodles and crisps. I would have brought my own food if I knew this was going to happen. The server said I can buy a lunch box for $39 - fish and chips. No other options. I think this is waaay overpriced and I don’t like fish and chips. So I ended up having $4 instant noodles. This is the only thing that I wasn’t happy about with the tour. Otherwise, nice boat and Jaime - the driver, was excellent and enjoyed his drive and commentary.

Great Day Just unorganised

We had a great day on the milford sounds tour. The coach was fabulous and had great facilities, the bus driver did a great job at trying to keep the extremely long trip entertaining. The downfall for us was the lack of communication. The tour emailed us the day before to say it was departing earlier but the frustration of this was it was late anyway and we were so worried we had read the email wrong but didnt have the international roaming to check emails at the bus stop. The lunch options weren't explained properly. we were told we had two food options but werent told it had to be prebooked prior to getting on the cruise which was frustrating. Then the cruise company said we HAD to pre-buy the food which we did in a panic but later learnt there were some food options on board. We also felt a little lost working out where to be and what to do. Direction was quite vague and we felt lost. However dont let this discourage you from booking this tour its fabulous! this is more constructive criticism on ways the company can improve the experience.
