Excellent tour with an amazing guide, Wayne

Great day trip in a fabulous coach and boat with glass roofs. But the highlight of the tour was the amazing driver and guide Wayne so had lived and worked in the milford area and at knobs flat for years. His stories made our day and gave us an insight into the area we would never have had without him. Highly recommended

Awesome experience

We went with the Awesome tour and it was an awesome experience. Our guide Paulie was amazing!!! His local knowledge was amazing and he stopped at the most amazing places so we could get amazing photos. The highlight of the day was our Kea experience when we stopped just after the Homer tunnel and spent time with a Kea family along side some amazing waterfalls and scenery. The Milford cruise ran by Callum was beautiful we had rain and sun and rainbows glalore.. Callum brought us up to many different water falls and made our journey special. Overall the whole day was spectacular and the rain made it even more special. If you have time I would definitely book this tour and go and explore the Milford sounds with Paulie, Callum and the team. 100% rate this experience!!!

Must do

This tour was amazing and Brett was a great guide. The stops he made were breathtaking and the cruise itself was spectacular. Lunch was very filling and the cruise itself was great. We went when it was a clear day but going in the rain I’ve heard is best so don’t hesitate to book on wet weather days.
