Very exited I was calling to book a Kayak trip. The girl answering the phone was not very helpful and said that I should look at the website. I was totally updated prior to call but just like to talk to her before I spend my heard earned dollars at the much looked forward to kayaking trip. Suffice to say... More

We booked onto the Sunriser Classic trip and it was wonderful. We were met at our accommodation and given a briefing before heading down to the boat yard to get kitted up and a little more briefing before we got on the water. Awesome. I was so glad that all clothing is provided as I was worried that I wouldn't... More

I have been to NZ 5 times and done a lot of great things, but nothing comes close to the day I spent with Rosco's on Milford Sound. We were picked up at Milford Sound Lodge, then driven to a changing tent just off the water. There we were provided with as much warm and waterproof clothing that we wanted.... More

This was absolutely one of my favorite things I've ever done on a trip. We had a gorgeous day, blue skies and not too hot or cold. We saw penguins and seals and paddled right up to the base of the fjords. We did the Sunriser Classic and it was worth every penny. Our guide's name was Adam. He knew... More

This experience was amazing from beginning to end. Courtney our paddle guide and Adam our driver made our day amazing, their knowledge and friendliness were wonderful. This is the best way to see Milford Sound. Even though it's winter we were never cold. The van and the change tent were heated, and we were supplied with warm clothing, including thermals.... More

The kayak guide and van driver were very knowledgeable and friendly. I'm glad we chose to kayak Milford Sound rather than take a cruise. We were concerned about it being too cold in the winter, but we were plenty warm (just layer up and Rosco's supplies the rest). We did the all-day "safari" and our only complaint was that we... More

This is the absolute quintessential Milford Sound Experience. Our guide Courtney was great, we learnt so much and had such a fantastic kayak adventure. Thank you, thank you, thank you Rosco's for providing us with the chance to witness the most beautiful corner of our wee country. This will be the first on the list if we ever get to... More

We did the day trip from Te Anau to Milford and back again. Adam from Rosco's picked us up from our accommodation bright and early. We had a great trip in with Adam stopping along the way to show us some great sights including the Mirror Lakes. Adam was very knowledgable about the local area and answered all of our... More
