Amazing

This could not have been better. It was gorgeous. And the best way to see Milford Sound. The staff was amazing and took care of everything for you. They got us fully geared up and prepared for the weather (it was a bit wintry). Really worth it.

Amazing - highlight of the trip!

We went kayaking on the 18th of January. There hasn’t been rain for a while, so not many waterfalls, but we were able to paddle right up to one’ the weather was amazing, the small group meant that we got a good, personalised trip and were able to learn a lot about the beautiful Milford Fjord. Anyone visiting Milford Sound - this is a must. P.s. beware of sand flies.

Very enjoyable!

We participated in The Sunrise trip on Christmas Eve and we couldn't imagine anything more magical for this time of a year ;) Not only the views are breathtaking but also everyone from the staff was super friendly and professional :) Big thanks to our guide, Cullum, who's knowledge and joy from where he is and what he does are really impressive :) Plus, the sense of humor, natural and inteligent, 11/10 :) Def recommended!
