The trip to Milford sound was exciting enough but to have Brian the driver and guide giving us information and advice made the trip even more memorable. He was so friendly and helpful throughout the day. Brian made it that bit special.More

Must-Do if you're in Queenstown. Views are majestic and unforgettable. The stops and Milford Sound itself are some of the most peaceful places on Earth. The bus rides are long but there are enough stops to take photos, go to the bathroom and stretch your...More

My wife and I have six kids (8 people). We would really love to go on the Half-Day Walter Peak Horse Trek as a family. Our youngest kids will be 9 & 8 years old respectively when we make the trip at the end of December 2017. Is there any way you could possibly accommodate us?
