The Most Memorable Milford Trip

I would give 10 out of 5 stars if I could. The office staff went above and beyond to make sure our group all got booked on the same tour. We also loved our guide - our group is still saying (weeks later) that we are so thankful we got Helen. Though I have been lucky enough to go to Milford Sound several times before, going with Fiordland Trips & Tramps was truly like going to Milford Sound for the first time again because of Helen's commentary. As a previous employee of the Department of Conservation Helen was an absolute treasure trove of information - from flora and fauna to history of the area - just wow!! I also loved the short walks we took on the drive back to Te Anau. Every other tour I have done has made the same stops, and while those stops are lovely, the walks Helen took us on was experiencing Milford in a far more intimate way. Just loved it. Thank you so much!

Fabulous day

This trip is great value. It is worth it just for the transport and cruise but Jeff's (our guide) commentary and knowledge was a real bonus. I've driven to Milford before but this hands down beats driving yourself as I was able to relax and enjoy the beauty and the jokes.

A must-do!

Had an AMAZING time with our tour guide being John! The little stops before even going to Milford Sound were such a great experience, not to mention the Sound itself!
