A great trip

Thank you Callum for hosting a fabulous trip to Milford Sound yesterday. The scenery on was breathtaking, the Mirror Lake really did look like a mirror. We were lucky to see Kea and seals, the boat trip was beautiful and fun. Highly recommendable

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.

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.
