The love and passion that Ray and his fellow guides have for their customers is beyond comparison. You will be shown the best of the Fiordlands and learn about it’s history through the eyes and knowledge of people who truly want to share their love of the national park. TIPS - WEAR BUG SPRAY.

It was a wet day but Jacqui was a very interesting and informative and fun escort on our trip to Milford Sound. Small bus is the only way to go...enjoyed the day. Worth paying that bit extra for the personal service.

Booked the tour from Te Anau to Milford Sound back in Sept last year and Ray was helpful. Went on the tour 2 days ago. Driver/guide was Jacqui ( Rays day off) who was friendly, gave a good commentary during the journey, and drove safely. They use a small coach (18 seats) which means that you don't have to wait...

Thank you for the nice review of our small group tour to Milford Sound. We are pleased that you have noted the extra leg room, as usually small coaches like this have 22 seats. Ours has 16, which allows an enormous amount of comfort. It is pleasing that you are happy to recommend our tour to others. More
