“Brilliant trip”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Glad we booked this trip instead of with a bigger coach. The cruise on Milford Sound was great and being in a small group was much more personal. Our guide, Andrew, was five star and standing by a lake drinking a home brewed cup of tea was the icing on the cake.

Yes it is the small things, like enjoying a billy tea in an amazing spot in a World Heritage Area, that can just make the day memorable! Glad you had a brilliant day.

“Added Value on Milford Sound Trip”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had a great day visiting Milford Sound and doing walks on the way back. Our driver and guide was Andrew and he was excellent. He ensured that all his guests were introduced to each other and by the end of the trip we were all great pals.

We liked the smaller boat on Milford Sound and there was plenty of room to walk around. We also visited the underwater observatory which we liked very much and we were the only couple of our group to do this but Andrew facilitated this so that nobody was waiting around. Lunch was great and the tea and biscuits were even better after our walks in the afternoon.

Trips and Tramps made Milford Sound much better than a straightforward coach-cruise-coach as it was personal and very jolly. I would highly recommend them.

“Excellent Day Trip”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I am so glad we booked with them. Stephen (Steve) was friendly, patient, great driver and informative. Everything was on time, mini bus was clean, lunch was delicious! The boat ride was 1 hr and worth it even though it was misty with a light rain. We almost completed the Key Summit hike but due to weather and time we turned around (probably right near the top). I would gladly take another trip with them and highly recommend them. Smaller group was so nice. Great Value.

Glad you had a good day out to Milford Sound with Stephen, his enthusiasm and knowledge of the area always adds to the experience. Pity the weather on Milford Sound didn't play its part ... next time!

“Well Organised”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I recently booked with Trips and Tramps to take me to Milford, then fly to Matins Bay and a few days later pick me up from the road end of the Hollyford Track. Everything went as planned and their drivers were well informed and courteous. The vehicle was modern and comfortable. I recommend them.

Great your Hollyford Walk was hassle free. We like to make it easy as this track is definitely worth walking in the Fiordland area.

“Great trip with flair”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Andrew drove 9 of us to Milford Sound from Te Anau...great drive....Trips and Tramps arranged the cruise for us on the Sound, and it was fantastic.
Scenery, and guided drive, with stop offs to walk local reserves, even a cup of tea and scones at the end of a days outing. Cannot speak more highly of this company. A must do!
