I had a personalised 1:1 guided hike with my lovely and patient guide Madeleine. She's also the driver and my photographer. As the only hiker on the day she was able to personalise the walk with flexibility. We still have time left after the hike so Madz took me to the start of Lake Marian to give me idea of what the tracks look like. She also took me back to Mirror Lakes when I told her I didn't see much of it on my 1st visit due to overcrowding. Alas! The place was all to ourselves!

Hi Cindy! What a great day we had, and so glad you could see the Mirror Lakes with no other people and with lovely reflections. I hope your photos all turned out well, and also your further walking plans. Take care. Madz

We did the one-day Routeburn track recently with Jeff and Ty Se (apologies for any errors in the spelling). It was an amazing experience and wish we had done the other one day experiences they offer too. Most outstanding was that both the guides have strong connection to the Fiordland and therefore the knowledge and passion they shared enriched our experience so much. They were both very friendly. Really patient with some of us who were slower trampers. Jeff is an amazing story teller. Loved the stories of the Venison wars:)

We had a very wet day but learned how this could enhance our Fiordland experience! We didn't get to Key Summit because of the weather conditions but Anya substituted a longer alternative walk and a nature walk. Anya was wonderful, very personable and very knowledgeable and made us appreciate the rain! We saw lots of birds and enjoyed the explanations of the local flora, trees and ferns.Everything well organised by Trips and Tramps. Thanks Anya!

Hi, thanks for your review! The Routeburn Track Key Summit walk is great in all weather - even if the weather prevents good views. There is so much to see in the incredible rain forest. Safe travels. Madeleine

Really enjoyed doing one day guided walks with Trips and Tramps. The mountain views from the Routeburn track were glorious, especially after some fresh snow from the previous night. The planned Lake Marian walk had to be cancelled due to rain, but we ended up doing a part of Kepler track instead, which turned out to be just stunning. Guides Helen, Ro, and Gary were very knowledgeable and full of great stories and anecdotes. Highly recommended!

Picked up from our accommodation in a minibus by a very knowledgeable driver/guide and driven to Milford Sound via Mirror lake, and the Homer Tunnel. Interesting landscape along the 'longest no through road' in the South Island of New Zealand! Arrived in Milford just in time to catch the 'Wanderer' - the name of he boat we were on. We were dropped off at the boat terminal if you drive yourself the car park is some distance from the boats! Tickets were handed out and packed lunches (included in cost) were also given to us. We were picked up again at the end of our boat cruise and taken back to the stop point for an unguided accent to Key Summit (part of the Routeburn track - full track is a 3 day walk) - or if you didn't fancy that you could stay on the minibus and then undertake a guided nature walk. We were then picked up 2+ hours later for our return to Te Anau after a tea/coffee/biscuit snack was offered (included in package). We were again dropped off at our accommodation. An excellent day trip without all the hassle of driving and negotiating Homer tunnel which is a narrow single track 1.5 km tunnel controlled by traffic lights which was certainly an experience in itself!

Thank you for traveling with us. It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed the whole experience and found the variety of walking opportunities we offer to your liking! Yes the Homer Tunnel is an experience, can you imagine building it? Would have been pretty tough as that is some of the hardest you can get!

8 miles +/- with ~1,500' elevation change including descent to the Lake Howden Hut. Comfortable pace with a knowledgeable guide. Stunning location.

Hi, thanks for posting your review, we're glad you had a good day. It's nice to be able to get into Howden Hut if there is time during the day, it provides a lovely contrast from the heights of Key Summit, and is a classic Department of Conservation Great Walks Hut. Nice and cosy with the fire going at night I'm sure!

It has been a day to remember: a helicopter ripe, hiking up the Key summit and back including a water Taxis ride. The guided tours are informative and exciting. Even in bad weather conditions you should give it a try.
