This is the worst tour operator I've had the displeasure of dealing with. I booked this for my non-english speaking family and was promised headsets- only to be told they are not available closer to departure date. Every interaction was a pain. Will not recommend.

We booked this with InterCity but ened up on a Gray Line bus. Santiago, our driver was very informative and provided commentary on the way to Milford Sound, how anyone can talk for 3 hours and not be annoying is beyond me, but he managed it well. There were quiet a few stops

The trip was beautiful. It was raining, but the waterfalls were all flowing. Lunch was not great and not worth the trouble. We had to queue for about 15 minutes for food that was not good at all. The cruise was great.

Wow, this trip was amazing! We went from Te Anau which cuts out travel from the alternative pickup location at Queenstown. Our coach driver Stu was brilliant, a man full of interesting facts about the area, the people, wildlife etc. He had a great sense of humour and made the
