“We miss you and we are coming back in June”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Ray was great and while my wife and I are not a chatty pair, he tried to liven up the mood with singing and great information about the area we were driving through. We were the only 2 after another couple dropped off somewhere else. The scones were delicious and the cruise was fantastic. I think the most important fact is the safe feeling we had. We knew we were in good hands. I am so impressed I am bringing my parents in June. They would love to meet you Ray!

We are so looking forward to your return in June. The weather will be 'starkly' different and the tour quite different. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tour and the fun along the way.

“Informative and a comfortable way to tour Milford Sound”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We signed up for this tour based on the reviews we saw on TripAdvisor, and were not disappointed. Ray is very very informative, and we learnt a lot in that 1 day, definitely a good intro to Milford Sound. He provided many photostops along the way, and even helped to take the photos.

“The best day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Ray has a great sense of humour and excellent knowledge of the area and a really good bus driver, who makes you feel relaxed. the lunch my Daughter and I pre ordered and the morning tea he provided gave us plenty to eat and drink. At the end of the day we were more than content with our day out and learned a lot about Fiordland. good stuff Ray, cheers.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Our day with Ray was fabulous. He was so knowledgeable about the area and stopped at so many interesting spots that we would never have thought to stop at had we been driving ourselves. His bus was very comfortable and spacious. We have never had such delicious date scones and we are quite the scone connoisseurs.
We were travelling with our three children aged 6,8 and 11 and Ray made them very welcome and they enjoyed the trip immensely. We originally had planned to take a helicopter ride over Fox Glacier but Ray's advice to take it over the Milford Sound proved excellent and was a highlight of our entire NZ holiday.
Thanks Ray for a wonderful day!

Thank you for the review of our small group tour to Milford Sound.
To be able to sit back in comfort and really enjoy the scenery without the hassle of driving, is always a huge plus, and we are pleased you 'warmed' to this.
To help make it the highlight of your NZ holiday is so much appreciated.
We are pleased that you enjoyed our genuine home baking (date scones)

“Not tour takers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We were originally going to drive ourselves but after my husband discovered that my driving made him way too nervous, we started hunting for a tour. We were staying in Wanaka so first we watched for good weather, using the i-site reports. Then we visited with a very helpful lady at the
Wanaka i-site. I told her we weren't real fond of tours, we needed lots of photo ops, we liked to hike, I needed several restroom breaks and we didn't mind driving to Te Anau. Tall order but she came through. She suggested Fiordland Tours. We made the arrangements, even getting assistance on driving times, etc. We left Wanaka at four in the morning even though they told us it would only take three hours. We arrived in Te Anau at 7:00 am, just like they said!!! I am not going to go into detail because all the other reviewers have said it all. BUT I will say that it was a very good tour. Ray delivered everything he said he would, starting with the small group (10). We also enjoyed the best date scones we have ever had. He is a very good driver (also traffic director the day we were with him) and he has a good sense of humor. We even saw a couple of cheeky (Ray's description) Kea birds.

What can I say, other than THANK YOU for the review, and the time spent to write it.
We hope you have a 'taste' for tours now and take more of them from now on.
It is nice to hear that the fresh cooked date scones were "the best ever"
It was a pleasure to entertain such qappreciative people such as yourselves.
