    We had an excellent day out at Milford as the night before we visited it had rained & there were literally scores of waterfalls all through the fiord....very magical.

    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.

    We were staying in TeAnau and did the section from Rainbow Reach Carlark to Moturau Hut. It was awesome, two bridge crossovers and an easy 13/14 km walk which took about 4 and a half hrs with plenty of stops to take on everything and get some photos. A few areas looked similar to some of the scenes in the Lord of the Rings and later found out that some were filmed along the section leading to the car park. Highly recommended.

    This is no ordinary NZ tramp. Tough because it does not have a normal track. Mostly rocks, streams, snow and everything in between. Best not to take young children because of the terrain. Just make sure you are fit and properly equipped. Good boots, nordic walking sticks, snacks, water bottle etc. Extraordinarily beautiful views along the way and right at the top, provided the weather is good on the day. So please check forecast before starting. So good luck.

    We loved this trip, had the most fabulous day. Great hosts, so informative and happy to answer all my questions about the area. Our five year old was happy spinning, ducking and diving in the jet too. The bike ride back was majestic and had plenty of time for a dip in the lake. Gorgeous!

    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

    A beautiful walk through pristine woods an the raod to Milford Sound. No mammals lived in New Zealand [except bats] until rats came ashore from Captain Cooke's boat in the 1700s.

    Had an amazing flight with Kylie on Valentines evening,
    Was a stunning afternoon so warm and still, spur of the moment walked in and spoke about a flight that afternoon, they were very accomodating and we got one sorted, Very exciting first time on a water plane.
    The scenery was stunning the flight was amazing so smooth, Kylie was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed out places of interest, we flew over Doubtful sound where we were heading the following day.
    Highly recommend this trip
    Thank you so much, Great memories

    We had the best time on our overnight cruise. Everything was fabulous - the crew, the food, the boat, the other guests, the weather, the fishing & kayaking, and of course the spectacular sounds! Love, love, loved James!
    Highly recommended!

    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.

    Great fun. Took the kids (12 & 10) and they loved it. Really well set up and the staff member was very nice and helpful when we need a hint. Highly recommend.

    Someone recommended this company to us because of their excellent reputation in the region, and we weren’t disappointed.

    Mark dropped us into our Wapiti hunting block and promptly picked us up again a few days later (unexpectedly) after our campsite got flooded out. The scenery we flew over is absolutely phenomenal and needs to be seen to be believed.

    Sarah was super helpful throughout the booking process, and she even couriered us + our gear to/from the hangar because we didn’t have access to a vehicle - supreme southern hospitality!

    100% would book with them again on future trips to Fiordland, and will recommend to everyone coming down here.
