What an incredible trip. Amazing scenery, wildlife and a great driver, Brian. Very easy to book through bookme and confirmation came from Real Journeys very quickly. From start to finish everything ran very smoothly. I understand it’s tough for operators at the moment, but what an incredible opportunity for New Zealanders to get out and see NZ without the hoards of tourists. We went pretty much the whole journey with very little traffic and had the Milford Sound cruise limited to a couple of boats. Us and one other. Saw Kea on the way in and on the Sound there were dolphins and seals. The weather was great - misty clouds adding to the atmosphere And the water calm. Lots of waterfalls after all the rain the previous week. Just breath taking. You must do this trip if you can.
