It was fantastic!! To start off with we were rather disappointed that we woke up to a rainy day. But off we went, raincoats on all ready for the day. We ordered the packed lunch, which was more than enough, and very tasty. The rain did not put on damper on the day at all. In fact with the rain came the most amazing waterfalls, many of them too. We were very blessed to be able to go out into the sea because we had no wind. We saw dozens of fur seals and even spotted a whale...twice!!. A fantast day had!! The team were amazing...the service great...facilities clean and first class!!
Colin is the best driver/tour guide I’ve travelled with. He took this experience to another level, we learnt so much about the history of Fiordland National park and it’s place in the future conservation scheme of NZ’s natural treasures, and we were well entertained with his humour. The number and velocity of the waterfalls was breathtaking and information about them was superb, the trip way above my expectation.
This was a wonderful full day, being an hour’s cruise across Manapouri, an hour’s drive overland and a three hour trip on Doubtful Sound. Prepare for a day of mixed weather. Real Journeys are very professional and we would not hesitate to recommend them. Safety was a priority, as was cleanliness. The hosts were knowledgeable and helped make the day special.
Amazing experience with views of layer upon layer of mountains and geographic features that are learned about but rarely seen. Excellent pilot who narrates what we see. The landing and take off are smoother than the usual planes one experiences.
It was a fantastic trip the scenery was epic. The tour guides were so friendly and all of the commentaries were interesting and humorous. It is one of the best experiences I have had and I would highly recommend to other NZers to experience.
