    Kate was an amazing guide for my half day tour. She knew so much about the flora and was willing to stop and show me the various native plants. I could have gone on the hike but without Kate I would have not known what plants I was seeing.

    What a delightful guide Douglas was. His knowledge and passion made this hiking tour truly exciting and memorable. Becs, our guide on the Kepler trek was outstanding. Her patience, gentle encouragement and guidance helped me through, what was for me, a very difficult challenge.

    Hi, thanks so much for your review. We aim to give excellent service and our guides are a big part of that. We are all hikers and travellers ourselves so we know what it's like to be on holiday and to also find yourself on a tour that is a little challenging or outside your comfort zone - we have great empathy for that! Safe travels. Madeleine

    We enjoyed a day hike along the Milford Track to Giant's Gate Falls with our guide Mark. It's a great way to get up close and personal with Milford Sound and we'd highly recommend it. It can be wet and muddy, so bring a good pair of hiking shoes or boots. Rainproof clothing is

    Hi, glad you had such a good day even in the rain! You make a good comment about bringing good shoes and wet weather gear. Milford Sound can get over 9m of rain a year so we often experience rainy days - makes for fabulous waterfalls and a lush vibrant (rain)forest. You made a good call taking our transport option - the road is quite different to other roads in NZ. Thanks for your review. Kind Regards Madeleine
