Wonderful experience

Both experience were amazing. I especially love the doubtful sound trip. Spectacular views. Our driver and guide Tony was funny and has a lot of knowledge about the national park. We can feel how passion he is about NZ nature and especially this piece of paradise. These are must do experience when you visit Te Anau. We enjoy every minute of the trip and will definitely do the overnight one.
