Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the best walks/hikes we’ve been on. From start to finish the tramps team did not disappoint! Madeline pulled some strings for us and found an amazing guide (Jane) to come in on her day off to take us during a fully booked season. The landscape, waterfalls, trails, and weather was absolutely stunning. An unforgettable euphoric experience all while being unplugged and present. The cruise was a bonus and icing on the cake. The captain literally pulled up to the waterfall while a family of dolphins gave us another show to remember. The transportation to and from was on time and comfortable. Jane & Madeline went above and beyond to make sure our experience was fun and memorable. We HIGHLY recommend this amazing company if you’re in the area.

2nd of Three day hiking package. Half day walk on the Milford track followed by a cruise on Milford Sound. Once again Geoff guided us with humor and knowledge of all things New Zealand. A great day had by all. The easiest walk which helped stretch slightly sore muscles from the Kepler experience. The views are beautiful, the track pleasant and insect repellant kept the sand flies away. Cruise on the sound is amazing.

First hike of three with Trips and Tramps. The helicopter ride was amazing and provided great views and a very easy ascent to Luxmore Hut. Geoff our guide was amazing and knowledgeable and very entertaining. The walk down the hill was a challenge and was definitely the more challenging of the hikes we did. Views are spectacular. Lunch was great. Just loved the whole package

Had a very wet yet wonderful hike with Andreas and Jane as guides. The Heavens opened and the views hid. Still great fun as the third day of one day hikes we did with the company. Well prepared, knowledgeable guides and great company. The group of people we walked with were just amazing. The drive along the valley gave us mountain to mountain waterfalls. Lunches were great. Would do the whole lot again.

I led a group from the USA and we enjoyed three days of hikes (Kepler Track, Milford Sound and Key Summit on the Routeburn) with the lovely and gifted guides of Trips and Tramps. The guides (Helen, Michelle, Kate and Bethann) are knowledgeable, accommodating of different fitness levels, and each added a lot to the experience. Having walked all these routes on my own several times, I really enjoyed the learning opportunities of going with guides. They provided transportation to and from trailheads, and delicious lunches every day. Would recommend it to anyone!

We had a fantastic day exploring milford sound by foot and by boat thanks to the care put into it by Trips and Tramps. Our guide “PC” was very personable and incredibly knowledgeable about flora, fauna, Māori legends, tracks, history, and geography of the area. It made our trip so much more than a hike and cruise. If you get him as a guide, keep asking questions. He is a veritable font of information, all delivered with great stories.
To top it off, I left my cap in their van after a long day and they kindly delivered it to our hotel door…Thank you!

Excellent day on Milford Sound. Jeff was an excellent guide and driver. He was entertaining, informative, and a very safe driver on the challenging terrain. He went over how the day would go and gave a lot of information along the drive. He made a point of interacting with everyone individually and made us feel very welcomed and included. Milford Sound is spectacular and should be on everyone’s itinerary in New Zealand. Much better to do from Te Anua than Queenstown. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Learned that the great walks/holes are well established routes with paths that are maintained. Geoff and Jake were wonderful and knowledgeable guides; funny and very personable as well. Hike up to the summit is a manageable walk and our group of 12 all walked at our own comfortable pace. Lunch was good and plentiful; the cup of hot tea at the top was perfect. Scenery along the way and at the top is incredible. Used our walking poles - a few steep areas with loose stones. On time and true to description. Loved it!

Hi, thanks for leaving a review, sounds like you had a great day with Geoff & Jacob. Cool that you all got to the summit, this isn't something we offer unless we are confident of the groups ability and the conditions - we have found that pushing for the summit can tire some people out making the 8km of downhill quite difficult, but it sounds like it was well within your capabilities so that's awesome!
