Amazing Cruise!!

The tour was nothing short of AMAZING! Our guide Jeff was spectacular and was very knowledgeable of the area! Milford Sounds is surreal and left my husband and me absolutely speechless! I highly recommend people do this instead of driving themselves. You learn so much about the area and history!!

Amazing experience

Absolutely fantastic experience. Ross, our tour guide from Trips and Tramps made our trip extra special with his knowledge and friendly personality. The whole trip was about 8 hours. We stopped frequently on the way to Milford sound at various scenic spots for photos. The Milford sound cruise was great! We saw lots of dolphins and seals. On the journey back to Te Anau, we also saw Keas which I loved. The whole experience was amazing and worth the money. I definitely recommend!

Satisfied customer

We went on a true winter's day. Manapouri was dark and moody but the bus ride over was magical through all the native bush while it snowed. Doubtful sound was outstanding despite or because of the weather and the silence experience was great. The ride back over the pass in much heavier snow was fantastic. Full Mark's to the driver Eve. Might have been a hard year so far but that was an experience we would not have had if it hadn't been for NZers being encouraged to explore their own country
