Head to Te Anau and join a day with Ray to experience the best date scones and balance of riding, boating, walking, and picture taking imaginable! First class service made most enjoyable by Ray's local knowledge and experience. Perfect!

We had looked at a number of the tour options and settled on this one as it was small and offered a number of stopping opportunities. It was a frosty morning to start but overall a glorious sunny day. Our driver and tour owner Ray was full of information and open to answering lots of questions. The trip to Miford... More

Our second visit to Milford Sound, our first time was with one of the bigger coaches, but this tour is much more personal. Pick up on time from our camp-site. The minibus only carries around 15 people so it is much more comfortable. Our guide was fantastic and very informative indeed. This is without a doubt the best way to... More

We decided on a tour rather than driving to Milford to give us a chance to admire the scenery and relax. The bus was very comfortable with only 9 of us in a fifteen seater. Jacqui was a great tour guide and provided real insight at the multiple stops along the way. The boat trip was exhilarating, great scenery and... More

small coach with max 15 people. Very good tour, we had Ray the boss for the day. Viability was limited in the extremely heavy rain but we certainly saw waterfalls. Boat trip was very choppy but God. Saw Dolphins and seals and waterfalls. At least in the rain there were no sand flies. Rays commentary was very good.

Our day was fun and relaxing and breathtakingly beautiful. The guide was very informative and interesting. He knew so much about the history of Milford and New Zealand that we felt educated by the end of the day. The extra stops along the way were well worth the added cost, compared to the basic package. He helped take photos of... More
