I so enjoyed this tour of Milford Sounds. As a solo traveler I loved being picked up at my accommodations and having the opportunity to kick back and enjoy being driven by a knowledgeable tour guide. I also enjoy the size of our group at 15 people. This made the tour more intimate and easy to get to connect with the other participants. They provided both morning tea and lunch, so I really didn't need to bring much. Our tour guide Stephen was very knowledgeable and I learned so much more than if I had explored on my own. This was an excellent tour and I would highly recommend it.

Very good organisation, pick-up and delivery service, very nice and competent guide, was very happy to tell a lot, there was even a packed lunch, all promises from the brochure were kept and even more! You don't always have it! We were very enthusiastic, gladly again and again. Unfortunately, the organizers had no influence on the weather

Doing it by bus and guided tour was a good choice. This allowed us to discover all the points of interest on the way leading us to Milford. This allowed us to identify all the possible hikes in the region to come back the next day. It would have been relevant if non-English speaking travelers could have a helmet with the description in French as far as we are concerned to fully understand all the possibilities of the trip. There was so much to understand and learn. Failing that, read well beforehand about the region, it can be easier. With a little English you should be fine. The landscapes are fantastic. On the boat we were lucky to have a French guide. The boat tour was magical, especially since we were lucky enough to have good weather. The meal, however, was not on point. Bring your picnic. You can do it. In conclusion, it remains a must. We have not been disappointed.
