We had a very enjoyable walk with wonderfully well covered tracks under the forest. It was raining in the opened area but to us on the track was like drizzle only. The 11km walk sounded long but we didn't even feel it, in fact we found it too short. In our group we had a total of 6 pax plus... More

Our best guided Tour since a long time. Anja was our tour guide and she did a great job. During the tour you could feel that she loves to show others the area around Milford Sound. We had perfect weather for the boat cruise and the Key Summit walk. It was a great day!

Excellent trip with Ross. From the start the picked me up from my Airbnb so it's much appreciated. Throughout the trip, Ross our tour guide was very passionate and shared lots of useful info. Yes lots of tour guides will share info but the way they say it matters. Our group left Te Anau at 8am so reached Milford Sound... More

Hi Jennifer, thanks for your review. It is interesting what you mention about guides, I think you are right. Having traveled myself it is certainly noticeable when you get an excellent guide - how they give the information makes the difference. We are proud to employ knowledgeable, experienced local guides who have a passion for what they do. This along... More

Five were picked up at Walter Peak Station by Ross, taken via a gravel backroad through the mountains to Te Anau and had a lovely lunch amongst the cattle & sheep. Ross is a retired Fjordlands guide - he provided detailed commentary about the environs, flora & fauna on our rides and treks on Kepler track. He picked us up... More

Although we did not book directly with Trips and Tramps, we are so glad that Cruise Milford hired them for our transportation to and from Milford Sound. We wanted to do some hikes with them but since our time was short in Te Anau, we didn't have an opportunity to book one of their hikes. Nonetheless, our small group of... More

Hi, thanks for your review. You make a good point about our guides finding less "touristy" places to take you. Lake Gunn Nature Walk has some outstanding specimens of Red Beech trees - but watch out for elves, orcs and hobbits! Hopefully we will see you again sometime. Kate More

Fantastic educational and inspiring trip hosted by Neil into Milford Sound and back. Inspiring and informative trip courtesy of Neil after flight to Te Anau airstrip from Queenstown. Would love to do a tramp through this area with TandT. Great day out!

Trips & Tramps were booked through our hotel (Radfords) at Te Anau, to take us to Milford Sound. Milford Sound was obviously amazing using Real Journeys, but I would like to highlight the expertise, quality and personality of our Trips & Tramps guide. Jeff (sorry, I don't know the surname) was nothing short of outstanding. His passion for New Zealand,... More
