The lodge staff were welcoming, the lodges were extremely comfortable, food was excellent and the hot water promised was there in abundance. Dion, the jet boat driver, did his job with enthusiasm...

From the booking process, to the pre-departure information on what to take, to the entertaining drivers and lodge hosts everything was superb. But the highlight of this trip and the thing that sets it apart was the quality of our guides Graham and Brooke. Graham, as the lead guide, shared his enormous knowledge of the flora and fauna and told... More

My wife and I enjoyed everything about this experience. The guides ,Graeme and Matt, the lodge hosts, the jet boat driver, Dion, all did their jobs to a very high standard ,with humour, passion and an interest in their clients. The fellow trampers were all friendly interesting people and so great to be with.

I was most impressed with this company, who were professional from the start to the finish. The accommodation was fabulous, the food was absolutely amazing and the guides were very informative, friendly and knowledgeable. I could not recommend this trip more highly,,, I would do it all again - given half a chance.

Exceptional trip all round with very knowledgeable guide. The weather was fantastic, the views outside of the forest stunning. The lodges, food and all the staff were excellent. the jet boat trips followed by the Milford sound helicopter flight just capped the whole trail!!!!!

Everything, including the weather, fell into place for this wonderful experience. Organisation was quietly efficient, friendly and keen to make the whole 3 days memorable. Guides were informative without being boring, or too much information. Overseas guests seemed to really catch on to the significance of the region.Helicopter ride was a stand-out for our teenager! And us "mature" ones too.

I can only really say.... if you have the chance to do this walk you will not be disappointed. Our guides, Kahu and Brooke, were beyond fantastic. Our fellow walkers were the best.. we met as strangers and parted as friends.. the nights in the lodges could not be faulted... and for us who walked into the New Year 2016,... More

A unique insight into both the natural & human history of NZ's Fiordland, all set in a pristine environment and supported by fantastic service, awesome food and great company. This was a very special trip, and it was a privilege to be able to enjoy it!
