Thank you for your review of our small group tour to Milford Sound and your honest appraisal of the day spent with with us. We believe frequent toilet stops are important and you have appreciated that. Thank you. 6 - 10 people is our average group size so the 8 people on the day was a typical/popular number. More

We acknowledge your detailed review of our tour to Milford Sound. We did pick you up first at 8:00am and had a small group of 9 people. We advertise to leave at 8:30am and return at 6pm (9.5 hours tour time) When possible we get away earlier so that we can enhance the day with more time for scenic stops.... More

Excellent trip even though weather was a bit misty and damp. Only 4 of us booked on the trip that day and our guide Terry was great - knowledgeable and good sense of humour. We stopped at lots of places that the big coaches missed. The home-made date scones at morning tea were yum! Would definitely recommend this trip. The... More

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!

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
