Looked at all the various choices and reviews for Milford Sound. As I was travelling solo, I decided on this smaller tour in preference to the larger coaches and boats.

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. The sights are truly spectacular and Ray was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Ask him about his life as a sheep farmer - fascinating! Thank you, Ray, for a wonderful and exhausting... More

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

We did this trip in November 2014, and the only way I can describe it is amazing!!! It rained, but I have seen Milford on a fine day. It is said that a person needs to see Milford on a fine day, again on a rainy day, and a day in which the wind blows the waterfalls up. I hope... More

We took the Fiordland Extraordinaire tour in April and we had a wonderful time! Our guide Terry really made the trip a memorable one. He is truly passionate about the area and you can tell through his informative commentaries and wonderful stories.

Our day started early at around 8am at the lovely Birchwood Cottage (where the Fiordland Tours office is located). We were welcomed by the friendly owner Ray and were introduced to Terry, our guide for the day. There were only 4 of us on the tour so it felt cozy and personalised.

Six years ago we were disappointed when we attempted the trip to Milford Sound from Queenstown and our coach broke down. This time we started from Te Anau. What a difference!
