Wonderful. We loved it. I was worried about getting cold, but Rosco's provided all the clothing we needed. The only thing of my own that I wore were my water shoes. And Courtney was a superb guide. Thanks!

We stayed in Te Anau and that was still a drive to actually get to Milford so i wouldn't be coming directly from Queenstown. The road to Te Anau is easy with google maps. Hope this helps.
