Great trip - highly recommended

It was an amazing day in Milford Sounds and the group size was absolutely perfect. The tour guide was great and guided the tour with a lot of humor. I made a lot of tours in the past but this one was one the most amazing experiences in my life. The drive to the park is really long but the scenery is really beautiful and a coffee stop is provided. The boat is really comfy and has a lot of space for everyone. I am really happy that I chose this tour.

Amazing day

The passion of our tour guide made the day really special. Well organized and interesting. We stopped off in places that were magical. We wanted a small group experience and that is what we got. Amazing day.

Amaing!

If you are planning to visit Milford Sound, best go with Cheeky Kiwi. The small tour bus is very comfortable and the whole trip was well worth every penny as you go with a small group and it makes everything go smoothly. Our guide, Colin, was very friendly and informative. Will definitely book again if going back.

Amazing day

Awesome small group experience. Guide - Dan - is the best! Takes awesome photos for everyone. He also got us the perfect spot on the cruise, which was excellent. Saw penguins. 10/10 will be recommending to others. Avoid the huge groups and do this one. Driving was great as well.
