We were picked up on time in Te Anau. Bus was comfortable. Our driver (Andy) was very informative about the area and stopped several times on the way to Milford sound for photo opportunities. This is a beautiful area and well worth a visit. We also received as part of our tour a packed lunch which was very nice. The boat captain was also very knowledgeable about the area and went slowly through the Fiord out into the Tasman sea where he turned around and came back on the other side. There are a lot of waterfalls. We saw dolphins and fur seals. There is Tea and coffee facilities on the boat.
The bus ride from Te Anau (in our case) was great, the driver (Tanya) provided and informative and, at times, humourous, commentary and conducted us safely through magnificent countryside to and from Milford Sound. Once at Milford Sound, we enjoyed a Mitre Peak boat tour out as far as the Tasman Sea, with a very helpful commentary on all aspects of the landscape and animal and bird life along the way. The scenery was breathtaking and made us aware of the beauty of this hidden part of Aotearoa.
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.
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The cruise was beautiful and we were lucky that the weather improved as the day went on meaning we could choose the option of climbing to Key Summit. The views up there were amazing and it was well worth the hike up. We really enjoyed our day trip and would definitely recommend it.
The driver we had was amazing very helpful and friendly. The bus ride was great and everything was amazing great way to spend our new years day. I will be booking this company again for sure Thank you so very much for one amazing day my daughter and I just loved it
