What people are saying about Te Anau

We absolutely enjoyed our 3 hour afternoon boat trip on the historic yacht MY Faith. Went across Lake Te Anau and into the South Fiord where we did a guided walk to the 'hidden lake' one of 17 in the area. Excellent informative commentary; firstly on the yacht sailing across the lake, and then by the guide on the walk in Fiordland National Park to the lake and return. This was followed by afternoon tea on MY Faith. The crew were outstanding and their enjoyment of taking the quests aboard this historic yacht cruising on Lake Te Anau, was apparent. We have no hesitation in recommending this really excellent tourist activity as it is so very interesting and informative in a very beautiful part of New Zealand and very good value for money spent.

Outstanding day trip to Milford Sound on 22 November 2022. As the weather was very wet this created hundreds of waterfalls coming down the mountains; on the drive into Milford and in the Sound itself. An extraordinary and spectacular experience. Excellent commentary by Ray, our coach driver who made the trip so interesting and informative. Would absolutely recommend to people thinking about doing this particular small-group tour from Te Anau with Fiordland Travel. Joy and John, Blenheim, New Zealand.
