Awesome experience

We went with the Awesome tour and it was an awesome experience. Our guide Paulie was amazing!!! His local knowledge was amazing and he stopped at the most amazing places so we could get amazing photos. The highlight of the day was our Kea experience when we stopped just after the Homer tunnel and spent time with a Kea family along side some amazing waterfalls and scenery. The Milford cruise ran by Callum was beautiful we had rain and sun and rainbows glalore.. Callum brought us up to many different water falls and made our journey special. Overall the whole day was spectacular and the rain made it even more special. If you have time I would definitely book this tour and go and explore the Milford sounds with Paulie, Callum and the team. 100% rate this experience!!!

Exceptional value

I managed to get the promotional rate for the trip. It was a great experience. We had few stops on the way, I had a lunch voucher included. The driver was explaining what we see around. The cruise was great, it was raining a lot but it made the scenery more dramatic. I will definitely book again in the future. And please don't forget your waterproof jacket, pants and smartphone when you go under the waterfall.

Milford sound adventure

We really enjoyed our Milford sound adventure. Brett our bus driver and tour guide was a very safe driver along some dangerous roads to and from the sound. He provided insight to along the way of the flora and fauna as well as geological history of the area. Go Oilers
