I can’t begin to tell you how good this trip is. The Sound is beautiful and truly Awesome (as the Kiwi kids say!) the staff and guides are relaxed, helpful and work hard to make the trip as good as it can be. The cabins are small but clean and comfortable with hot showers and even hair dryers. The buffet dinner is excellent as is the cooked breakfast. But the Sound is the star of the show. Don’t waste time sleeping!
