Will Luxe Tours travel with only a few guests?

Yes 100% guaranteed departure unless weather or safety has closed the Milford Road. We would never want to ruin your day you have travelled across New Zealand or the world to experience by cancelling. 

Will I be able to sit with my partner or family?

Yes, as part of having a great experience we have limited daily bookings to 9 guests in our Luxe coach. This means that couples are guaranteed to be with each other and that everybody will be close to a window. 

What is our point of difference?

Simply put - our coach, quality of service and local guides. We have the newest small group coach of anyone from Te Anau and it is the best fit out by far in terms of quality. Our guides are exceptional in their service & care and are very adaptable to the day in front of them because of how well they know the road to Milford. 

Is your tour usually on time?

Yes it is. Sometimes things can happen such as an accident on the road and we are held up, or in winter some snowfall however apart from accidents, we can plan for other delays and change the order of our photo stops along the way. The road is always monitored & managed and we are always up to date. 

What safe practices do you take?

Our 2023 new vehicle is installed with the latest safety technology, we have live weather at our fingertips, as well as satellite messaging incase we come across an accident or we need assistance. Our guides have strict processes to stick to and we have quite heavy backgrounds in safety.

Is your tour refundable?

Yes it is up until 24-hours to go for all of our tour options, apart from the Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise which is 14-days. Also, if there is any major adjustment to the day such as a cut-short cruise in Milford Sound, we will consider an adjustment to your price. 

Just took a Luxe Tours Milford Sound Tour and it ran as seamless and enjoyable as possible. From the prompt pick up in the morning, to the outstanding commentary and information provided by our driver and guide, Toby…a resident in Te Anau. Also, a number of little details added not seen on the big tours - an insulated water bottle to keep, a mid morning snack a savoury or sweet muffin from a local bakery, and a hand towel for the inevitable rain or mist to occur at Milford. Overall, a top notch experience!
