And he was great (kind, patient, welcoming) of our 5 year old son. We had about 9 in our group. Several stops along the way to see Milford Sound and then a nice 2... More

We were only two couples on the tour that day. The tour went on exactly as planned. Experience was enhanced due to excellent short trekking every now and then on our way.... More

We had a wonderful day trip to Milford Sound from Te Anau. We ended up being Ray's only customers last week, so we had an incredible and personalized experience.

Angela, the pleasure was all mine. It certainly was not "exhausting" for me to show off our wonderful Fiordland to such appreciative people such as yourselves. Having a talk on farming in New Zealand is part of the tour if requested, and I am pleased you enjoyed all aspects of our small group tour to Milford Sound. Regards Ray More
