I reckon with these day trips where you spend a significant amount of time inside a vehicle, you have to make sure that you enjoy the journey as much as you enjoy your destination, and that is exactly what we got from the Milford BBQ Bus Tour with the great Marty - what a champ! He made it possible for... More

Our family of four was accompanied by one other person. All five of us from the States. This journey was one of the highlights (although there were many) of our NZ trip. Marty made us welcome and was an extraordinary source of information. We made many stops, walked, and took the Milford cruise. On the way back after dark, Marty... More

We had a great trip with Marty during our winter trip to QT. The long journey was interesting throughout due to Marty's knowledge of the area, and the scenery we passed through was even more spectacular than expected. It was also a real plus to have such a small group, as we were able to go to areas that the... More

I ended up being the only person registered for the tour that day and they not only still honored my reservation, but also gave me an incredible one-on-one day tour. The scenery was obviously fantastic, but so was the service and conversation throughout the day. Marty, the owner/guide, is very friendly, interesting and well informed.

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

The weather was perfect and we enjoy every moment in our day trip to the beuatiful Milford Sound. Nick is great as guide, driver and made a delicious barbecue. The small group who traveled with us was nice and we recommend this tour to everyone who want to spent a day in the Milford Sound. Everything was very well planned,... 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
