        SENSATIONAL - YOU MUST DO THIS
        WOW WOW WOW.. This tour is worth every cent & and early start. We were picked up by mini bus in Tea Anau, 7.30am for the drive to Milford Sound. Kevin our driver/guide was fabulous, sharing local knowledge and tips, while stopping at scenic lookouts, lakes and bridges & importantly, convenient loo stops. Kevin was kind, funny and patient with everyone and took our photos as we stopped. Legend ! The scenery is jaw dropping with so many wow moments, and the cruise (Cruise Milford Sound) was sensational, again with expert commentary, tea/coffee and cookies included. Our tour included a packed lunch (yum sandwiches, fruit, muffins, chocolate, chips, water, juice and mints). My partner, despite adjusting to the cold ( we are from the Gold Coast, Queensland) loved every minute of what I call an 'exploratory adventure'. After the cruise, we headed back to Te Anau with more jaw dropping scenery and a few Lord of the Rings location photo stops, arriving back in Te Anau around 2.30 pm. We give this tour and Kevin 10/10 for the experience, service & value.

        Fabulous guide and glorious scenery
        We started our day with a fantastic guide, Dani. She is seriously the best driver we have ever had anywhere in the world. Safe, knowledgeable, clear, fun, helpful. We were blown away by her sense of humor and organization of the day. We had all ages and abilities in our group. One heli-hiker and one heli-scenic cruiser. It took five minutes to drop off the heli-hiker at the airport just outside the entrance to the park. On the day we were there, the skies were blue and never clouded over. Dani made sure people were prepared for the sun. She also spoke with each group to determine how long they wanted to hike. Several only wanted to be on the Hooker Trail for an hour or two. So she made arrangements to meet them, and transport one to the Heli-scenic flight and another group to Mt. Cook for lunch. Then she came back to get the rest of us three hours later. Three hours allowed us enough time to hike to the end, have 20-25 minutes for our bagged lunch and then hike back. We are in our 60’s and fit (and had trail shoes on our feet). On the way back, we picked up our Heli-hiker and still had plenty of time to top at the Salmon farm and for ice cream on the way back to Queenstown. It is a long day, but a great day with a variety of experiences and wonderful stories from Dani. It was one of our best days in NZ.

        Heart-throbbing splendor
        Long bus ride made much more fun by Colin’s quite interesting history and anecdotes about the area. We made several stops along the way that gave us a real sense of the geology of the area. The boat ride on Milford sound clocked in at 1.45, a bit less than the 2 hours on the itinerary. It was wonderful and the captain provided good information and some humor along the way. Milford Sound — ahem, Fjord, is a beauty and a wonder not to be missed. Colin was fantastic as a host and font of knowledge. Give that man a bonus, Cheeky Kiwi!

        Great way to get from Christchurch to Mount Cook
        We travelled from Christchurch to Mount Cook with Cheeky Kiwi Travel, in a minibus. Pick up was late, because of a problem with the original vehicle, which was unfortunate. However, the rest of the journey was very good. The guide/driver was excellent, talking almost continually about the various places we were travelling through, giving great information. We stopped off several times on route, and the scenery for most of the journey was spectacular. This is a great alternative to those not wishing to drive while on holiday.

        Easy, full filling, stunning.
        Fantastic tour to say the least. Well organized with proper bus stops for coffee/bathroom breaks, sightseeing spots and photographs, delicious lunch and of course absolutely stunning boat ride and a flight. Pure joy. Wonderful guides. Very relaxing yet reach and full filling tour. Must do!!!

        Milford sound Cruise and Fiordland National Park day tour
        We had a great day, enjoyed the stops along the way for sightseeing and photo opportunities. The two hour cruise was amazing. We were given lunch and snacks and we did stop for a coffee break early in the day. It was a long day but glad we got to see such a special part of the world. We had a great guide who told us about the places along the way and there was also time to get some rest in. Would definitely recommend this tour!

        Wonderful experience too and from Milford Sound
        We had an amazing day. Everything was so very well organised. We were picked up on time and our timings were perfect for the whole day. Danni our guide was wonderful, allowing quiet time for the first hour for everyone to catch up on some sleep while it was still dark. Danni explained and commentated throughout the drive to and from Milford Sound. Consideration was given to regular bathroom break stops and we stopped at great locations for admiring the beauty of the different landscapes and photo taking. The music play list was great too. Could not fault anything a 10 out of 10 day and thank you so much Danni for making our day so special. Gail and Paul from Peachland Canada

        DONT DO IT
        Our trip from Queenstown to Mt cook was good and our guide was amazing. But our buses abd driver/tour guide changed for the next leg. There were only few stops made for quick toilet breaks as the driver was running late. He detoured thru inland and all we see was cows and sheep. We had a Maori commentator and she kept talking for first couple of hours. The experience was terrible, no value for money and I have requested for refund.

        We loved our tour experience to Mount Cook with Jeff! He was very friendly, funny and pointed out great facts and history about the mountain and New Zealand! Would definitely travel with this company again, was well worth the money!

        A great day - well organised trip with a breathtaking cruise on Milford Sound
        An excellent day - a very good, friendly, informed tour guide / driver (Abi). The transport to Milford Sound was comfortable with plenty of stops on the way and good catering. The cruise on Milford Sound was breathtaking. Highly recommended.

        Great tour to Milford Sound
        We had an amazing day trip to Milford Sound. We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young kids) and we were together with our friends, another family of 3. We asked to be in the same bus and they accommodated us. Our guide was Sarah, who was wonderful . Pick-up from our hotel (Crowne Plaza in Queenstown) was on time. The mini-bus was full (13 people). Sarah had great stories along the way, and stopped often for photos and bathroom breaks. Once we got to Milford Sound, we walked right up and boarded our boat for a 2 hour magnificent cruise around the Sound. They use Milford Cruise, a smaller cruise company and it is not too crowded, which is great. We were told that they only load up to half of their capacity, to give tourists more space to enjoy. We had lunch on the boat (included in the price of the tour- if I remember correctly it was a sandwich, a bag of chips, a bottle of juice, apple and a cookie; they also provided some small bottles of water, but you should also bring your own) . Then it was back on the bus for the long ride home. Fewer stops, but just enough bathroom stops. We would highly recommend this trip.

        Awesome views of Milford Sound
        Wonderfully curated trip to Milford Sound! Lots of small breaks for scenic views and photos! Brian was awesome! They arranged for a smaller boat tour of Milford Sound and then an amazing plane ride over the mountains to get back to Queenstown! Highly recommend!

        Worth it.
        Overall an exceptional tour. Stops were great. Food options for purchase were really nice. Bus was comfy. Only downside was the long wait for the helicopter and plane ride. Jeff was a very informative and friendly driver who dropped us off at our accommodation at the end of a very long but enjoyable day.

      Our flight was cancelled due to poor weather but we were immediately refunded and had the choice to skip the tour or modify it to hike around the base of mount cook. We chose to do the hike.

      Overall a great trip! Our Tour guide, Tammy, did a fantastic job of telling us about the local area and keeping us comfortable and entertained as we drove to/from our destination.

      An absolutely incredible experience. Every moment was so serene and breathtaking, from soaking in the sights in a helicopter (I mean, c’mon!!!) to walking through an ice cave and drinking the purest water I could imagine tasting.
      Our guide, Jakey, provided such an enjoyable experience while teaching us quite a bit about the glaciers we were standing on and mountains all around us.

      Our tour guide for the day was Colin. He was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to make sure we got to do our heli hike part of the tour. Due to the weather changing there was some doubt as to whether or not the hike would go ahead. It did luckily and the views afforded and overall experience were nothing short of spectacular. Add it to your list of things to do, you won’t be disappointed!

      The guide was awesome and shared tons of interesting factoids about the various locations. The route also meant that there was many opportunities to snap great pics too. Finally, although the weather meant that certain activities were out of bounds, the guide made great effort to provide us with safe alternatives. The guide was also personable and put in genuine effort to ensure that the entire journey was comfortable and memorable.

      It s a very good and pleasant experience. They pick me up at pick up point on time and the tour guide-Hannah is very friendly. My heli-hike guide is Marius take a very good care of us. I enjoyed the tour very much even i travel alone. It’s a must to see when you come to New Zealand. If you dont have a car and need to travel from Queenstown, this is a good choice! Thank you very much for the tour and the experience.
