We had a spectacular, sunny cruising with Real Journeys! The mountains, waterfalls and wildlife were so amazing---a true joy to see!

Have been to Milford a couple of times and it is ALWAYS AWESOME! The drive in/out is a little tricky but if buses/coaches and holiday vans can do it, I knew I could. Tip: Pack insect spray to keep the sandflys at bay ....

This tour is fantastic. Simon our tour guide picked us up from our lodge in a small 25 seater minibus. So unreal and told us many facts on our 2 hour drive to Milford . We stopped a few times for photos which was fantastic. We went through glacier country and filled up our drink bottles from a creek. Then... More

We went on a kayaking trip in Milford. The skies were overcast and windy. However the story of how the Maori gods created the place seems to dovetail very well with the aura of Milford at tt point. Truely one of the most surreal places i have visited

Boat trip was wonderful. Got close to the waterfalls. It had rained the night before and all of the waterfalls were active. Just wonderful. Saw seals. During the ride out, we stopped at one of the rainforest turn outs and enjoyed a pesky parrot who wanted our lunch or better yet to join us in the car. What fun!

One of the top 10 places in my view that you MUST visit. The scenery and the sheer height of the mountains will take your breath away.

We had a professional bus driver Paul Brown "Brownie" who is a native New Zealander who is passionate about seeing that you enjoyed your trip working for Real Journey Tours. His commentary along the tour was informative and interesting and a credit to the operators. One thing missing was umbrellas when getting on/off at various times, it was thought that... More

We left from Queenstown 6:45am (picked up by taxi) on a Real Journeys day trip to the Fiorland, arriving back about 7pm. It was cloudy all the way to Te Anau, then fined up before the tunnel turning into a beautiful day. The Nature Cruise trip included 2 1/2 hours on board the Mariner taking us to the mouth of... More
