Love the glass ceiling bus and the smooth sail

Love the glass ceiling which was very convenient to capture the amazing views either sideways(by the windows) or upways (via the ceiling). No suffocation worries and very informative driver. The cruise itself was very smooth and informative as well. Loce love the scenic views it provided

Amazing

The trip was really amazing n also safe for a solo traveler like me. Driver was really funny n a nice tour guide along with safe driving. Lunch was more like a snack than lunch-lunch.

Absolutely AWESOME

I can not recommend this experience enough. It was absolutely awesome. We were on the bus ‘AWESOME’ and Paul the driver was so entertaining giving us a lot of history and interesting detail about the native birds, environment, area and all given in a way that was definitely not not boring

Ditch the lunch Do the cruise

The cruise was delightful, coach views were stunning with some commentary along the way but the lunch was a huge disappointment. One tasteless pastie or rice dish and complementary cup of tea. You could purchase cold drinks or extra snacks . I'd recommend the cruise but go the cheaper option and ditch the lunch package. We were a group of six and nobody enjoyed the meal, as hungry as we were. Would've been happier with a ham and cheese toastie.

From Milford Sound Coach + Cruise Inc Lunch - JUCY Vista

Hi Louise, we are sorry the lunch was not to your taste. We survey passengers and the feedback we are get is that the majority of customers enjoy their lunch. Food is one of those things where you are never going to make everyone happy all of the time. You need to be careful that you are not pushing your individual tastes upon others who very likely wouldn't agree with you. Also, you have taken a picture of the lunch sign up form provided on the coach before arriving in Te Anau at 9:30am. Your cruise departure was at 1:05pm. By taking this picture makes it look like you already decided you didn't like the lunch many hour before you even had a chance to try it.

Average tour

Get ready for a long day in a crowded bus and boat, “lunch” was terrible (suggest bringing your own food). Milford sound is a bit over hyped
