    booked at 1159 pm for next day tour that leaves at 615 am, they missed informing the bus driver due to super last minte booking and the schedule informed not so late , but once they realised the mistake got us free cab to catch the bus en route Bus was excellent, not too crowded, their boat cruise is in colaboration with the Real Journeys another large operator in Queenstown / MF and very nice Overall couldn't expect anything better Left some luggage in the bus (despite being reminded politely to check if all beliongings were taken) and could collect it next day from their office , the lady in the office was extra helpful! Overall an awesome experience

    前一晚訂隔天馬上出發,早上7點在top 10等待接送,那麼遠竟然還有接送,真的很不可思議,今天的司機Jamie,非常熱心的介紹沿路的風景,跟逗車上的大家笑,非常歡樂,開車的技術也非常的專業,經過慢長的路程到了米佛峽灣,我們上了船,jamie還特地跑到岸邊跟大家揮手,真的很甘心,遊完湖,回車上看見jamie在認真打掃著車子,這大推,然後他又安全的把我們送回皇后鎮,已經晚上,因為住比較遠,最後下車,他真的把我們送到住的門口,揮手跟我們到別他才離開!推推推
