Since we spent most of our trip driving around New Zealand, I decided to leave the transportation to Mark Dewsbury of Alpine Adventures. Mark set up a fantastic trip for us, from the pick up at our B&B to the drive to Milford Sound with scenic stops along the way. We avoided the tour bus stops and any crowds. Mark... More

He was also flexible in changing the itinerary for us to go to... More

Nice and professional staff and a large room. We had been lucky as we got some snow just in time. Mark turned out to be a guide with excellent... More

One of the best walks that I have done in New Zealand – walking through the old rainforests, creeks and rivers crossings, the night in a remote hut and a walk back on beautiful yet wild beaches – and all that without seeing anybody else. Great adventure.
