Wonderful guide who feed us so much local geographical and historical information, as well as Maori mythology, flora, fauna, bird life, plus weather patterns and effects etc. Descriptions of the different walks were accurately explained so that the correct choice of a tramp could be made based upon one's physical ability. Obviously Milford itself lived up to all our hopes and expectations. Would highly recommend exploring with Trips and Tramps.

Great journey on the Earnslaw, such a shame that it rained all day. I did try to defer to the next day but this was not very flexible due to less than 24 hours notice. Animal farm was great - would have been more enjoyable on a dry day of course. The afternoon tea was quite average ; old scones & low quality confectionery jam, plus full of sparrows pooping everywhere & eating the food!

This trip only takes a limited number out each time. You feel very welcomed and special. The boat has a lot of history and is a great way to glide along the water. The food and drinks where an added bonus. George and Adam are very knowledgeable and are just lovely. The guided walk is an added bonus. An easy walk and is very beautiful.
