This was a wonderful day trip. Our tour guide, Jamie, was wonderful. Very informative and we had a behind the scenes feel for what we got to see. We had such a relaxing day, being picked up from our accommodations and having a guide for the day. Wonderful way to see Milford Sound.

This Tour was by far the most valuable one I did. Terry our Tour Guide made this trip unforgettable with all this given Information about New Zealand, the fiords, landscape and other entertaining stories. Its really worth the money and we all spend a great day in a small group. Thanks a lot!!!

This was a perfect day with so many extra activities that the big tours don't cover. The weather for once was perfect and our guide, was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. His stories greatly added to our experience and his special stops along the way made for a wonderful day. He was brilliant with his camera skills too, so we have at least a couple of good photos of us, apart from our dodgy selfies.
