Our tour started off in a less than usual manner when our driver stopped to assist a family who's car had hit black ice and gone off the road. Our driver/guide, Steve, was very kind and helpful and made them feel welcome on our trip. He was very knowledgable of the area and gave us lots of opportunity to stop... More

We all really enjoyed our day with Steve from Trips and Tramps. Everything went smoothly from the on time pick up to drop off late afternoon at our accommodation (even though we were several kilometres out of town). Steve was a great guide - we grabbed the best coffee in town before heading off to Milford and stopped several times... More

We really enjoyed our visit to MIlford Sound, which was one of the highlights of our trip. We had an enjoyable morning stopping off at different spots for pretty walks on the way, and an interesting commentary as we drove. We then had an enjoyable 2 hour cruise around Milford Sound, which was beautiful and good fun. Since we went... More

We ( 6 of us) had a charter tour organized with Trips and Tramps to Milford sound. Our guide Andrew was just great, very informative and enthusiastic. We were given enough opportunities for photo stops and short walks along the way to Milford sound. We did the short walks to the Mirror lakes, Lake Gunn walk and also the walk... More

Excellent day out and one of the highlights of our NZ tour. Modern minibus with extra high sided windows meant it let the light in and maximised the views. Stephen, our guide for the day was bright, informative and adaptable to what we wanted to do. At 8am the road to Milford Sound was not particularly difficult driving but it... More

Had a great tour with our driver Andrew. He was very knowledgeable, considerate and happily answered all the questions I and others threw at him. They let some people hike up to Key Summit, and those that didn't want to went off and did something easier with him. The snack at the end in the parking lot was a pleasant... More

Glad Andrew was asked lots of questions, these two way conversations ensures you get the most out of your day with a local guide. The hot drink and tasty cookie at the end of the walk is just one of the extras to make the day just a bit more special. More

- Pickup at hostel - Good bus (max 10 persons) - Friendly staff - Lots of information - Good trip - Small operator, just 1 bus BUT...: To all backpackers: book without lunch! It saves you a lot of money. You can make your own lunch much cheaper. Lunch includes: a good sandwich with salad and chicken, an apple, some... More

Booked the Trips and Tramps minibus tour to Milford Sound through our travel agent in the UK, hoping it would be good but not really knowing what to expect. The tour was an experience not to be missed. Andrew, the guide/driver, made the journey to and from Milford Sound as much a part of the day's experience and pleasure as... More

We were so lucky to have perfect weather for this day out, and the perfect guide in Andrew for the minibus drive to Milford Sound and the walk we did (part of the Routeburn Track). The Milford Sound boat trip is wonderful - a must do attraction. Andrew even made fresh tea and gave us biscuits at the summit of... More
