We decided to do a private tour since we have young children with us. The tour was flexible, we got to stop whenever we needed to. We stopped for picnic, toilet breaks, to see the Kea birds, and whenever we wanted to take photos. Anja was great with the children and they love her! It was a great and fun... More

Although we had a very rainy day, our tour guide Anja was so excited and enthusiastic about the day! With just the two of us and one other lady, we had our own private tour! Anja was super knowledgeable and was really easy going - making for a fantastic day. The stops along the way to the Milford tour were... More

Trips and Tramps operate a great day trip to Milford as well as private charters, track pickups and they even deliver the mail into Milford. Very comfortable vans with informative commentary (apart from Rugby, the owner unfortunately supports the wrong team...) and a cup of tea along the way will ensure you have a great day out. I certainly recommend... More

We had an excellent day out to Milford with Trips and Tramps. Our guide Geoff was witty, knowledgeable and great company. The hotel pickup was on time, the group was small and the mini van was comfortable. We really enjoyed the short walks and short stops to soak in the view. It was good that we were in a small...

Had a great day with this company. Our tour included all we hoped for: hotel pickup, a small group, informative drive and short walks (winter season) followed by a 2 hour Milford Sound cruise and return to hotel. A really nice, stress-free way to see this breathtaking part of Fiordland! My partner and I had a wonderful time and would... More

If you can afford to treat yourself, treat yourself to a Trips&Tramps tour. I bought the backpacker deal for 140nzd, which included the pick-up, cruise, and walk afterwards. There were 2 who chose to hike a mountain rather than going on an easy walk ;) The guide was knowledgeable about the area and was a safe driver. You pay more,... More

Hi, thanks for your review. And thank you for choosing us, a small, local based company. There are certainly companies that offer cheaper rates, and if you want a budget tour with the masses then they are definitely worth a shot. By choosing to travel with us you invested in a more personal, small group tour with more options for... More

I joined the trip with my boyfriend. Everything was well organised. I highly recommend going on the Milford Sound with that company because it's more then a cruise with them. We got to stop in couple of places to admire the beautiful nature and we also went for a Key Summit walk (beautiful! don't hesitate- just go!) some people took... More

Hi, thank you for your review and recommendation. Glad you had such a good day with us! You're so right about the helicopter option - it seems to be a real highlight for those who take it. And I like your attitude to Key Summit - JUST GO! Thanks again. Kate More

Trips and Tramps excellent guide Geoff organized a great day to Milford Sound as well as made the best of the hikes considering the inclimate weather.

We had the most wonderful day on the Milford Sound day tour, the guide/driver was excellent. Small group and great mini bus. Couldn't have been happier. Did Milford cruise and Key Summit walk, it was spectacular. Going back in November and will definitely tour with Trips and Tramps again.

We used Trips & Tramps on four separate day excursions, and will have to give them a five star rating on all of them. They were prompt, well prepared, friendly and fully knowledgeable of the area. They exceeded our expectations with a high level of professionalism. Each of the 4 guides brought something different as far as experience and knowledge... More
