Our guide Sinchan was very good and made the tour very enjoyable. Not just Milford sound but the whole tour revealed spectacular scenery and the Parrots were so cute (and cheeky). We were picked up on time from our accommodation in Te Anau and that was a great spot to start. The boat ride around Milford was really worthwhile although we thought some of the group were crazy when the boat went right into the waterfall spray and stood in the open to get soaked…..hahahaha We thoroughly recommend the Small Group tours which we loved

Took a wonderful Milford Sound cruise with Cheeky Kiwi Travel's small group tour. We loved every minute... it was worth every penny. Our guide, Krieg, was funny, friendly, and full of surprises. He's become quite knowledgeable on a range of local topics in his 1000 trips to the Fiordland sounds, he knows his facts... ask him anything and you'll get an entertaining answer! Krieg is also a gifted storyteller, and even has a medical background. He can handle just about anything. Highly recommended.
