We did a private tour to Milford and tour guide was Geoff. He picked us from our accommodation and we spent a fabulous day in Milford.

Our hotel reserved our seats for Milford Sound with Trips and Tramps and we are grateful they recommended this group. We were promptly picked up at our hotel by our guide Anya and I have to say her knowledge of the region and her delivery of the her commentary kept us all interested throughout the day. She looked after everyones... More

We have just completed walking the Routeburn and Kepler tracks with a family group and used Trips and Tramps to shuttle us to and from our destinations. Very comfortable vehicles and friendly and informative staff. Nothing was a problem and very easy to deal with. Really helped in making our trip a pleasure!

If you want to hike one of the best "tramps" in NZ - the Milford Track - but don't have time for the full 4 day trek, Trips and Tramps can take you on a guided half day hike of the last portion that ends in Milford Sound itself. It's a beautiful "tramp", complete with waterfalls, lakes, birds and lots... More

They are wonderful, knowledgeable and delightful - couldn’t recommend them more highly. They take care of every detail. We did the 3 day package tramp and were so glad our travel agent encouraged us - it was great.

Generally not a fan of booking any kind of group tour I just thought a tour from Te Anau, rather than driving ourselves, might be the easy way to do Milford Sound and so it turned out. It was a small tour (max 12 people), really well organised (particularly that they do it so you are on the early 1030... More

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review. You a right about taking an organised tour into Milford Sound and not driving yourself. As you saw the road is in places steep, narrow and windy - so it makes sense to take a break from the driving and let someone else do this for you. You noted... More
