We did the overnight trip on the ship 'Navigator'. The trip across Lake Manapouri, the bus trip over the Wilmott Pass to Doubtful Sound, our welcome onto the 'Navigator' was all very professional. There was information and humour from our hosts. On arrival on the 'Navigator, we were given a briefing, shown to our very clean and adequate cabin, then... More

The guides were informative, safety conscious, and gave great bits of nature education and interpretation along the way. On the way back our guide played the Lord of the Rings Soundtrack and up and back she pointed out many sites where the movie was shot. One of our guides was Julie and her colleague (whose name I can't remember, but... More

We took 3 tours with the company. All were very well structured. The staff is really warm and the service is top-notch. It's not like the other tours you'll take that rush you like a herd.

Everything was superb with Real Journeys. The bus we took from Queenstown to the Milford Sound and then back to Te Anau was new and very comfortable. Our driver and guide Tracy was extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. We didn't expect to do any sightseeing while we were driving to the sound but we did and we enjoyed each one.... More

We did the cruise one day and the track the next. Real Journey's was great, they are very professional and their vehicles are modern and well kept. Laura our guide was a pleasure to be around and extremely knowledgeable. We highly recommend using Real Journey's, you won't go wrong with that decision.

Bus trips, boat trips, great huts, informative briefings from hut rangers each night, and a great mix of people, made this freedom walk a great experience 10/10
