Much has already been written about the Milford Track, which you could enjoy independently but then you would be missing out on the value that the guides provide! And while the entire organization works to make sure your experience is exceptional, the majority of your interaction is with the guides who are without exception personable, knowledgeable, conscientious and thorough in their work.
Each day begins the night before with a presentation explaining the next day's tramp - what birds and wildlife to look out for, what geologic terrain and formations you will see, and where to go swimming (if you're brave)! Then on the trail, they position themselves through the party to always be on hand and provide safety and security when needed and to answer your questions. In the lodges, at the end of the day, they are still on hand socializing. They are obviously very special, impressive people.
Last but not least, don't miss the hot chicken soup well timed and cheerfully served up at the top of McKinnon Pass. (Thank you, Masa!)
