    Awesome day trip. Andy is a fun, knowledgeable and friendly guide and we were very grateful for his expert driving to and from Milford Sound. It was great to have pickup and collection from our hotel too.

    I couldn't pick a favourite. The whole trip was fantastic! The flights over and back took different routes and the scenery is incredible. Mountain after mountain after mountain. Stunning. Our pilot was very personable and spoke to everyone on the flight. It was difficult to hear what he said during the flights though which would be the only drawback. Cruising the sounds was also just beautiful. Saw dolphins and seals. Also had gorgeous weather so that was a bonus.

    My husband and I booked a coach trip to Milford Sound, our tour guide and driver is Paul(Pauly potato from Irish xx),he is the best driver and tour guide we have ever met,very professional, caring and knowledgeable about local sceneries. We were so impressed that he is charge of two jobs, driving and gave us detailed descriptions all the way along to Milford Sound.Paul stopped at the amazing natural scenery spots to let us get photos taken. He is very experienced and passionate. We highly recommend book this trip.
    We were lucky to see a real Kea, two swimming penguins.

    From the moment I booked this tour with Cheeky Kiwi Tours it has been a fantastic experience! Originally booked for August 21 prior to border closure, my experience of their customer service has been exceptional! Great communication prior to the tour, clearly advising pick up location and time was really appreciated as traveling solo.

    Pick up and intro by tour guide in training Shinchi ( sorry re spelling ) and Guide / driver Shane was very friendly and professional. Shane’s knowledge of the local legends, flora and fauna coupled with a few fun quizzes with the assistance of Shinchi made for a wonderful day tripping.

    The smaller boat cruise enabled the fantastic opportunity to get as close to the waterfall and be drenched and loved it!

    Having the opportunity to travel in a small group of like minded adventurers was the highlight of my 2 week solo tour of your beautiful Aotearoa

    This is an absolute essential trip to do!!! Visually stunning from start to finish. Our pilot Jason was amazing, and very informative. The flight path was different on our return, which made it extra special. Milford Sound is a visual feast from the air and the boat. 100% recommend this tour!!

    Totally exceeded my expectations, partly because the BBQ lunch was of such a high quality, the food & range was banquet style, the staff were well organized & efficient & corralling - what 150 people ?- was seamless ... you were seated with a drinks order underway within 10 minutes of disembarking. The buffet serve yourself from at least 6 'stations' was easy. Then sit back & enjoy the majestic views over Lake Wakatipu.
    Wander the well kept gardens, stroll over to see puppies, & then the Highland longhorn cattle.
    The sheep dog 'show' was educational & entertaining. Although being an Aussie I still can't recall ever seeing the dogs actually round up a herd of sheep so well & so quickly. Their technique is eye catching ... & its not in a pen, its in a largish paddock on a hillside, so very easy to watch how it all comes together.
    Queenstown - the town - when we visited, was in a state if renovation & disappointing!
    Suggestion ... undertake this afternoon Earnslaw, Walter Peak Station & Farm & BBQ lunch for an unforgettable afternoon.

    Amazing trip. Fly the bus driver was knowledgeable, experienced and informative. He made the 12 hour round trip achievable. The cruise itself was very informative and the scenery was beautiful. Would highly recommend.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour over the Easter weekend. Gary, our tour guide, was a great host and extremely knowledgeable about the vineyards and south Otago wine history. Clearly passionate about the topic making many unbiased :-) recommendations. Best moment was the last stop, sitting at the outdoor tables at Brennan drinking in the sun, the autumnal colours, mountains, Great company and of course the Pinot Noir! A great day.

    To reiterate quite a few previous comments, WOW!!!
    This trip was a bucket list item, never to be forgotten. Callum was our pilot and he was awesome. He was very friendly and his commentary was knowledgeable and illuminating. Thank you Callum for an awesome ride.
    To land atop a mountain and walk amongst the glacier(s) was an experience never to be forgotten and totally worth the money spent.
    My wife and I cannot recommend this trip enough. If you want an unforgettable experience, get your tickets NOW!
    Oh, and we went in Autumn, so a landing in winter (which is what we're planning on doing next year) would be even more mindblowing.

    We had the pleasure of spending half a day with Joel. The tour was unbelievable and exceeded all of our expectations with a wealth of knowledge, variety of activities and memorable locations. Joel himself is an absolute legend and we can’t thank him enough for making our time in Queenstown memorable.

    Fantastic trip up the Dart River. Stunning scenery. Our driver/guide, Ed was great - informative and a good mix of jet boating and 360s. This is a must do trip if you’re in the Queenstown area. Well worth the money.

    Being a budget conscious domestic traveller I was on the fence on whether to join this gourmet wine tour or do my own self guided tour.
    I have done my own self guided tour before but compared to this tour it was like chalk and cheese.
    Our guide Gary was fantastic in that we didn't feel rushed at all. He is very knowledgeable about wine because he is studying wine and he passed on some of his knowledge to us.
    We tasted wine from the 3 different wine regions in Central Otago and had a delicious bbq lunch at the Stoaker room cooked in a barrel influenced by American bbq'ing techniques.
    Every winery we went to our super euthastic hosts were ready to receive us.
    Thank you Bindy at Gibbston Valley for giving us a very energetic and entertaining description of tannins.
    I fully recommend forking out a bit more money to join this tour.
    You won't regret it!

    Absolutely one of the best experiences. I’m a nervous flyer but not any more. I felt so relaxed and calm in their company that I asked to sit up front on the way back. The views, pick up from your hotel, boat with reserved seating for their clients where all excellent. This is the way to see Milford Sound, truely is an amazing well run business with such care and compassion for what they do. Don’t think about flying with anyone else!

    Absolutely incredible experience - our driver Andy was so nice and knowledgeable and made the bus drive really enjoyable. The bus itself was really comfortable and having the wifi and USB ports was a huge plus. The stops along the way were all beautiful and made the time fly by quickly. The cruise was spectacular - some of the scenery honestly didn’t feel real. I did the scenic flight back and the panoramic views absolutely blew me away. Overall, an absolute must do experience when on the South Island.
