    Milford Sound was carved by glaciers in the last ice age, leaving a breathtakingly beautiful range of tall mountains and cascading waterfalls. One glimpse of the staggering 5,550-foot-tall (1,692m) Mitre Peak and it's no mystery why the area is considered the Eighth Wonder of the World.

      This was our second Milford Sound day trip but the first with Jucy. Found the Jucy trip to be excellent. We were picked up from our motel in Te Anau on time and greeted cheerfully by our driver Simon. The bus seating was very comfortable and equipped with seatbelts which are a good idea as the road is very winding in parts and help you to feel secure. There were many stops along the road to Milford Sound to stretch your legs and take in the magnificent views. Simon kept us entertained and informed the whole way too. Upon arrival at Milford Sound we were given a genuinely delicious lunch, consisting of a lovely fresh sandwich, yummy biscuit, super crisp apple, fruit slice, mini quiche and drink. The boat for the tour was lovely and spacious with windows everywhere as well as large viewing platforms front, back and on top of the boat for those who wanted to get the full experience and get a drenching from one of the many waterfalls. A very enjoyable cruise with pauses along the way to take in and experience the sights. All in all a very enjoyable full day out and certainly worth every cent - we were very impressed and would highly recommend this trip with Jucy.

      This was a fun trip, with a fun and interesting driver. We left the rental car at the hotel and appreciated being able to look out the window. We took the earlier morning trip and almost had the ship to ourselves, and thus had spots at just about any railing we wanted. The mid-day departure looked like it would be crowded. The included lunch was just right.

      this tour was fabulous, nice and small and personable. 'Peter' our driver for the day was superb, adding extra photo stops in when he had time. The lunch on the boat was pretty poor, but we already expected that and brought a wee bit extra of our own. Overall it was brilliant.

      Wonderful tour! On our tour, we stopped approximately five times each way at beautiful lakes, waterfalls, and sights. Great guide and commentary. Boat tour was not overcrowded and offered an included lunch (our's was not a boxed sandwich!). I would highly recommend.

      The tour guide, Simon, was outstanding. His knowledge and passion matched the unforgettable scenery on the bus journey to Milford. The cruise on the sound was amazing with seal spotting a real bonus.

      Our tour guide Simon was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We learnt so much about the area that we wouldn't have learnt if we'd just driven to Milford ourselves. Overall it was a great experience and well worth it!

      Great trip with a very good guide. Simon was knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining. Although Milford Sound was beautiful, I probably enjoyed the drive there and back even more. We stopped at scenic sights, took a couple of short strolls around the mirror ponds and to cascades in the bush and had a chance to play with Kea birds. Very glad we chose this company for the trip rather than doing it on our own.

      Perfect trip. 33 passenger bus was just right for the trip.
      Arrived early and did not have to put up with mobs that arrived around 12:00 to do the same tour.

      As a general rule you either travel the sound in rain and see many beautiful waterfalls or have no rain and no waterfalls. We loved seeing the waterfalls as they are the beauty of the sound.

      Must do! We had a guide going around for years. He knew a lot and he told us a lot. Little group so lots of time to have very nice stops and take pictures. The Soundtrip was in the sun so unforgetable. Very nice and almost a whole day trip. Relaxed and fun too!

      This was brilliant, the small group idea worked perfectly as when disembarking from the coach you were not waiting around when we had to move on. Coach driver was great, very informative and a good sense of humour. Boat was perfect as again their was not too many people so all in all would really recommend this trip.

      This tour was by a local tour operator under Jucy, had around 18 ppl. Our guide was Simon, who used to work as a conservationist before becoming a guide. Very knowledgeable about the stuff around Fiorland. Did a couple of short hikes which is not possible with those big tour buses. Enjoyable and recommended!

      Excellent trip, had a fantastic day. Tour guide very knowledgable. Lunch was fab, pitta pit on board the boat (I had chicken and cheese, boyfriend had BBQ steak) and cookie and free hot drinks! We paid $320 each to take the separate helicopter trip, was the best money we spent in NZ.
