Coach to Milford ex Te Anau

Great way to travel to Milford. Highly recommend so you can take it all in. Simon gave a very informative commentary and drove like a pro. Loved our lunch packs. Recommend some sealegs for the drive to cope with winding roads. Overall I enjoyed the coach stops more than the cruise but still recommend both.

We waited in the rain for half and hour!!

Jucy provided accommodation pick up which we were happy about but the bus was late due to some reasons. We started waiting in the rain 10 minutes before the pick up time and to our disappointment, the bus didn’t appear at 7.30am. We waited passed pick up time without knowing when it will come!!! We called the front desk and they said it will come any minute. My family were kinda worried if everything will be messed up after 20 minutes of waiting. But to our relief, the bus came after half and hour though we were really upset that the bus was late. What makes it up was the journey to Milford sound and back. My family and I enjoyed the trip and it was really fun on board the cruise to see the waterfalls upclose! The bus made several stops along the way to see the Chasm and pretty views sights. It was really a great way to start the Rat year!
