    Despite not having the best day for our trip, there were clear patches that allowed as to truly see the beauty around us.
    The only easy way o the sound is via boat across lake Manapour, bus across the Wilmot Pass to the sound. A good day out. Would loved to have done an overnighter, but a mix of seasons v covid meant this wasn't available.

    This was a lovely trip and tour, tour guide on the boat over to the cave was great and informative, gave lots of great information about Lake Te anau and the Fiordland national park. Logan our guide in the cave to see the glow worms was also really good, great trip all around and worth it too check out.

    Such a lovely national park, it is always amazing seeing the different places around New Zealand and seeing how the scenery always changed, Fiordland is very beautiful worth visiting over again, also many walks around this area.

    Almost drove right by it! There is a little car park which has a footpath going around to the Chasm, a boarded walk over so you get a good view.

    Hello Ray,
    Thank you so much for an amazing experience today, from the minute you picked us up to drop off ( right to the van)!
    You have over delivered on all our expectations for our day out in New Zealand’s beautiful playground..
    Your humour, knowledge and yet personal hosting was a real treat.
    You should be very proud of what you provide to your customers, I have travelled the globe, and Fiordland Tours is World Class.
    We will spread the good news of what you can offer.
    These are tough times for your industry and wish you all the very best for the new season that is coming.

    Kind regards
    Barry and Pauline

    We departed Te Anau wharf on the 6pm evening scenic cruise. From the moment we step on board the Faith we are made feel absolutely welcome and part of the Family.
    George and Adam showed my wife and I around the fully restored 1930 sailing ship with its ornate timber finishing's. The period sailing costumes warn by the 2 operators really set the tone for this adventure.
    The motoring across the lake was calm and smooth. We were offered some light refreshments and canapes which were delicious.
    We tried to get the shell we say the, old girl to sail when the sails were raised for our return but there was not enough wing and a 1930 sailing ship does not have foils. On the return Adam stood up the front of the ship and played the Bagpipes. Where else in the would could this happen
    We can not speak highly enough of George and Adan and the Faith. This adventure made our 4 days in Te Anau completely memorable.

    Thank you both very much.

    A massive thanks to Shaun and Daniella for a wonderful flight and pickup for the Hollyford Track. The flight was a brilliant way to start the trek and the flexibility on the pickup was really appreciated. You've got to do this.

    Peter provides a most enjoyable cruise around Lake Te Anau which includes a pleasant short walk on the other side of the Lake.
    He has a smaller boat, which enables a more personal experience to the customer.
    Peter's knowledge is very good

    Awesome helicopter ride around Milford Sound, visited Sutherland Falls where one of the Mission Impossible films was filmed.
    Very cool pilot who told us about places of interest, sorry can't remember his name.
    Had done a boat trip in the morning which was awesome, seeing the stunning scenery from the air well that was incredible.
    You have to treat yourself and go for a flight
