This was an amazing day out! We were collected from our accommodation in Te Anau so we could all enjoy the scenery, which was magnificent. Being in a mini bus with only 10 tourists and our lovely guide Douglas made it very friendly and flexible day. Lots of great information and beautiful scenic stops on the way down, the awe-inspiring... More

We (family of 4 with 2 teenagers) went on the one day tour with cruise in early Jan and had a really enjoyable day. The tour was very well-run and being picked up from our accommodation in Te Anau meant we could enjoy the scenery and not have to worry about driving. There were plenty of stops and Stephen, our...

This was the core of our 3 week visit to new Zealand. The walk package was flexible so we could choose from a range of options. We changed our minds about the dates once we realised the driving times and the tightness of the schedule we had set ourselves. They did not bat an eyelid. The approach throughout was professional,... More

My Milford Sound experience with Trips and Tramps was very good and I would recommend it to other travelers looking for a reliable company to go with. The tour picks you up from your accommodation in Te Anau, handles all the details for the Milford Sound cruise, and also provides some lunch and tea for the day. The small size... More

We went on the Full-Day Milford Sound Hiking Tour with Cruise—and we added a helicopter ride to the top of a snow capped mountain. Everything was super-fantastic. Toni was our guide and she was awesome. We really loved the small group and the lunch came in handy. If you're a seasoned hiker, I'd recommend doing the Key Summit hike, the... More

Hi, Key Summit certainly is an added bonus as no other tour companies do this side trip on their tour. We like to think it is something special that makes us unique - along with our smaller numbers. Safe travels. Kate More

We were lucky enough to have an amazing guide in Toni. She was most knowledgeable about Te Anau and its surrounds and provided a really enjoyable experience. Would go again anytime.

Our guide was Toni and luckily, we had a small party of only 5. She also works for the postal delivery service, so we got to see other aspects of kiwi life. The deliveries didn't impede the tour whatsoever as all the stops were along the way and were quick drops. It was a nice quiet tour. Good pacing and... More

Hi and thanks for your review. Taking a heli flight is definitely a great way to see a little bit more of the area. You're right it is different to the glaciers however we think it is equally (if not more) spectacular! Good choice going on a tour for your first trip into Milford. The road can certainly be hazardous... More

We did the round trip to the waterfalls along the end of the Milford Trek. Anika was a great guide. Well versed in flora,fauna and history. Most important, she convinced us to go in an day of awful rainy weather when others cancelled. She was right. The rain kicked up all the waterfalls and it cleared out so the return... More
