Jackie did a great job with the tour. She was very informative and pleasant to talk to. It was a small group (about 15 of us) which made it a lot more personal and the perfect tour. We met some new friends, got to see everything the Fiordland had to offer and never felt like we were cattle being herded... More

We were recommended to use Fiordland, by our Motel, and we haven't had a better recommendation. Ray's small group tour got to places other bigger operators couldn't have got to, and the freshly cooked baking was fabulous! He was helpful, and extremely informative about every aspect of the locality. He joined with a small boat operator Mitre Peak Cruises, which... More

We booked the Fiordland Tours and had the best trip! Ray was entertaining, knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we had a perfect day. It was a small group and he personalized it for everyone. We stopped at places for short hikes and photos that none of the other tours did. The trip to Gunns Camp... More

We chose this small group excursion to Milford Sound as the reviews were wonderful and small groups suit us best. It certainly was a small group-just the four of us. Jacqui, our wonderful tour guide and bus driver, picked us up from our Te Anau motel at 8.30 and for the rest of the day we were in her hands.... More

Thank you for the wonderful review of our small group tour to Milford Sound.

Great tour, comfortable seating and lots of photo opportunities. Ray, our driver and the owner, can answer all your questions and has a fun game of answer the questions. Yes, he does toss some chocolate around and that is fun too. We made a nice stop at Gunn town and enjoyed tea and sxones. I highly recommend this tour.
