Our family loved the trip to Milford sound. There was forecast of snow, and some icy conditions along the way so driving yourself was not an option. You get an opportunity to see the terrain; a stop at Mirror lake, a 15 minute hike to a waterfall chasm, overlooks to see a variety of landscapes, rain forest, hillsides and mountains.... More

We had such a great time on this tour to Milford Sound. What absolutely makes this tour exceptional is the care, interest and knowledge of the tour guide and driver Nick. He took an active interest in all 8 of us and the small group environment made the day so much better. To be honest, the many excellent stops along... More

We booked this as the idea of a BBQ and a small group appealed. It was a very good decision as we had a great day expertly guided by Nick. We were picked up at our hotel and part of a group of 7 on that occasion. There were well timed comfort breaks, knowledgeable commentary and a great BBQ provided... More

Great day trip to Milford Sound. Nick and Mayumi picked us up from our hotel in Queenstown. There was only 6 of us on the tour which meant we got plenty of information and attention from our hosts - who were very friendly and knowledgable. The BBQ lunch was delicious and we ate in a very spectacular location away from... More

Milford Sound is amazing and beautiful. I just wish it hadn't taken a whole day to get there and back but obviously there's nothing that can be done about that. The tour was nice and if you have your heart set on doing Milford Sound in a day, this is a good tour choice. I really liked the small size... More

What a fantastic day! We were collected from our hotel and driven to Milford sound. Nick, our driver was very knowledgeable about the geography of the area and made the long journey very interesting. We had several photos stops with time to stretch our legs and then came the BBQ lunch which was delicious and very well organised. The boat... More

What a fantastic day! We were so impressed with Nick--creative entrepreneur, knowledgable guide, great chef, and clever entertainer. After picking us up right outside our B&B, he gave us a wealth of interesting information as we drove through spectacular scenery and made several stops. The opportunity to take a walk through a magical lichen-covered forest while lunch was being prepared... More

Booked this trip back in the UK months before we went to New Zealand. Actually forgot what we had booked when we waited at the pick up point in Te Anau. Best decision we ever made was to go with the BBQ Bus. Nick and his wife are fantastic , small bus (7 people) but that made it so much... More
