There's a reason why the ratings are so high for Fiordland Tours. What an absolutely incredible day. Terry, our driver and guide (although he was really more like our knowledgeable friend), was one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and was so well informed about everything in the region. Please thank him again from... More

I am writing this so long after the event and I apologise to Ray for this. On the 1st August, 2015 we did the Extraordinaire Tour after mail communication with Ray. We were fortunate enough to be the only couple of the tour and it was amazing. Ray showed us everything he promised plus. The highlights were the Gunns Camp... More

Terry was such a perfect host and driver. His headset was not squawky, he had just the right amount of commentary, he was extremely knowledgeable, and he made the day super pleasant. We are really happy we selected this company, especially because of the smaller van. It seats 14 I think, but we just had 6. Terry was so engaging... More

To give ourselves a break from driving/navigating, we treated ourselves to a coach-cruise-coach day tour from Te Anau with Fiordland Tours. In terms of 'dollar value per hour' and costs of activities, tours or other transport during our New Zealand 10 day trip, our Fiordland Tour came in at best value by far. The smaller bus and group made for... More

Ray at Fiordland Tours gave us great advice, and booked us on their Milford Sound Small Group Tour, Coach and Cruise. There were 13 of us, and our guide and driver, Terry, looked after us all as individuals. He skilfully navigated those tricky roads and let us concentrate on the scenery, which is fabulous, making frequent stops, explaining historical and... More

This is an absolute must do tour through Fiordland Tours.
