The whole trip was superb! Our tour driver and guide Brian was exceptional. It was a very comfortable journey, blessed by a beautiful weather! I especially enjoyed the encounter with a kereru and the boat ride that took us close enough to the magnificent waterfalls. Overall a 5 star rating and would highly recommend this fabulous experience.

Our driver Bryan was absolutely wonderful. Not only was he very helpful and humorous but also very knowledgeable about the area. We were also able to stop at different photo spots along the way. Milford Sound is simply gorgeous. It was raining throughout the whole journey but that makes the sight even more wonderful.

Our coach driver, Brian, was superb. Commentary educational and entertaining, he stopped at all the scenic photographic spots, and was kind and caring to us older passengers. He had us in stiches with his puns and made the passengers feel that they are part of a shared experience. As a bus driver, I saw him cope with the challenges of idiots pulling out in front of him and stationary vehicles on corners- whithout missing a beat in his narration- an absolute legend. He is the best employee you will ever have.
