What people are saying about Te Anau

The experience was good. Our guide kept us continuously occupied with the updates on the scenery and kept time. He was humorous and also very helpful. The cruise was well organised with a decent buffet lunch. In spite of rains everyone was eager to be on the deck as we cruised along the river. Everything went smoothly according to plan.

I recommend my driver Benjamin. Such a thorough knowledge of the area and so well worth the drive to, cruise and drive from Milford Stound. A beautiful sparkling day with lots of memory's to take home. A shame there were a couple of stops I'd have liked to make but couldn't eg lupins & waterfalls. Maybe next time I come back.

Great day out to Milford Sound, better than driving and good commentary from the tour guide.Plenty of history.

Confortable bus, great driver/guide. Good stops. Great boat trip

Great relaxing way to see the sights from the lake.
