An early start, but an excellent day out. Private tour with heaps of photo stops on the way up and on the return trip. Great morning tea with chocolates included if you answer the questions. Local informative commentary with a sense of humor included. Suitable for families of all ages. ( We had 10, 11 year old plus my in laws (brother and parents!!) Very friendly and relaxing. Given the opportunity, will recommend this tour to my friends. Thanks Ray for an unforgettable experience, and going the EXTRA mile that Queenstown tours wouldn't do!!

Thank you for the wonderful review about our small group tour to Milford Sound.
As we spend more time in Fiordland than anyone else, we get the chance to do the extra photo/scenic stops, and still in an unhurried way that you have appreciated. We are pleased that you appreciated our famous morning tea. It was our pleasure to entertain such wonderful people as yourselves.

“EXCELLENT PERSONAL TOUR- HIGHLY RECOMMEND”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Perfect day the sun was shining, picked up at the door by Ray who has lived all his life in the area and knows the history, the characters who lived there, the best places to stop . A much more personal tour than is offered by the larger tour operators. We were the only two passengers,but the maximum he takes is 15 and the service would be the same . We stopped at historic Gunns Camp and shared a cuppa and beautiful scones with the locals. Made a couple of stops for short walks before enjoying a great boat trip.

Thank you for the review about our small group tour to Milford Sound. It was a pleasurer to have people that appreciated the personal touch that a small group offers. We are pleased that you enjoyed the fresh home baking that we offered at morning tea.

“A wonderful day out - highly recommend”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Thanks so much Allan for a great day out, very informative commentary and for making us feel very special! A small bus and even smaller group meant that we were not jostling for photo room and could go to places that the bigger busses couldn't! The cruise on Milford Sound was lovely and stopping at lookouts, having time to explore waterfalls and gorges and beautiful scenery along the way was a definite highlight. Our scones and cuppa and lollies on the way home were great and the yummy packed lunch was awesome! We will treasure the memories - thanks so much. :))))))))

Thank you for the wonderful and complete review. The Extraordinaire tour with a mini kitchen aboard for tea and coffee at any time of the day is always a big hit and we are pleased you appreciated these facilities. The fresh made scones are part of every tour and we are pleased that you enjoyed the attention to detail.

“Fabulous Experience!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

My son and daughter-in-law took this tour when her parents visited last December and they enjoyed it so much they took us when we came to see them. The bus picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back there afterwards. Alan was our guide and he was friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer our questions. You could tell he loved the area. We had several nice scenic stops along the way to and from Milford Sound where we were able to get off of the bus and go for a short walk to see beautiful scenery. The boat ride at Milford Sound was also wonderful. The area scenery is spectacular, one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The tour was well worth the money. When my son went in December, they had Ray as their guide and they said he was wonderful as well. I recommend this company highly.

Thank you for the positive review and your appreciation for Alan providing you with such an enjoyable tour. Alan enjoyed your company as much as you enjoyed his. To have you come back and do our tour again is real special for us. The "Ray" referred to by the reviewer is the writer of the response. Once again thank you for the time you spent to write this review.

“Above expectations”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back 9hrs later. Our guide Alan was relaxed, knowledgeable and clearly loved fiordland and all its wonders. We had a clear sunny day which was perfect but as Alan pointed out the wet days have their own charm. We would thoroughly recommend this tour. Thank you Alan for memorable day.
