I took this tour on my own while the others in my group were off to Milford Sound. First off, I was delighted when the Real Journeys folks informed me that trip was being offered at a special discounted price! That started the day on a high note. The boat trip across Lake Te Anau at the beginning and end... More

As we were doing this attraction whilst staying in Te Anau our day had to start very early. A taxi was sent to pick us up from our hotel at 06:40 and at 7:00 we boarded a coach for a 2 hour drive to Te Anau where we then got on another smaller coach with our guide who took us... More

From the moment we got into Te Anau we were greeted with enthusiasm by our guide Heath. Myself and my partner were lucky enough to be the only ones booked on the tour that day. Heath was informative and fun. Because it was just the 3 of us we could go at our pace, so we got plenty of walking... More

This is an easy-to moderate walk two miles into the Milford Track with a side trip up to Glade Burn and back to the boat dock. Lunch at Glade House is provided - we had soup, sandwich and cookies. That's just about right for a few hours of walking. Our guide was Hanna and she shared her enthusiasm and knowledge... More

Our guide Richard was very good--knowledgeable, informative, and courteous. The provided lunch at Glade House was tasty and sufficient. We chose this guided hike instead of doing a day hike independently because we didn't have a car (we were taking the bus around the island). We were concerned about transportation and didn't want to have a gap of time waiting... More

We did this as we didnt have chance to walk the whole Milford Track (maybe next time with better planning). Had a really informative guide, right balance of information and chance to enjoy the scenery. Small group size of 8 worked well. Would recommend.

I did the one day guided walk and did not feel like much walking was done. Maybe that is the nature of doing this particular one day walk or it is so with this company, I don't know as I did not repeat this walk with any other company. I felt more time was spent on the bus and on... 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 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
