This was an excellent small group tour. We had a great day with Ray who was very entertaining and knowledgeable. The scenic stops on route were great and got lots of snaps, something we wouldn't have seen if we had driven. Great day all round.

Each individuals expectations are subjective therefore I can only comment based on my own opinion and experience. So after looking at the reviews we decided to book the fiordland extraordinaire tour (from memory $169+$20 for lunch). The good points about this tour is the guide is clearly knowledgeable about the wildlife and history of NZ as well as being "fairly"... More

There are sometimes we can take something from less than perfect reviews, but in this case I need to challenge the critical points made. The difference between the tours is quite huge There is quite a difference and it is hard to explain without being here. I will point out the Extra part. We do the most spectacular short walk...

We stayed at the Birchwood Cottages (same address) and were offered the tour when we booked the accommodation. We thought the price was good and decided it would be nice not to drive for a day. We expected a bus trip to the boat, boat cruise and bus home. We were in for a fantastic shock! We assembled outside our... More

We were staying in Queenstown but decided not to take one of the big bus tours as we prefer small groups. We drove to Te Anau and joined Fiordland Tours there. Jackie was our tour guide and took us to a number of places that the large companies do not visit, including Gunn's Camp, where we had tea and scones.... More

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 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.
