Full-Day Guided Sea Kayak Trip from Picton
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Used this group to plan the Queen Charlotte walk. Living in the states and not having been to New Zealand we wanted a group that would make everything go smoothly.
The group was terrific. We handled all the arrangements via email. We got our lodging completed,including packed lunches each day and they arranged for our bags to be taken to each location. Everything went smoothly.
They made sure we had contact information for the walk itself, and the book they provided for the walk was very helpful
Definitely recommend using them if you want to walk the Queen Charlotte track. And I highly recommend doing that.

Love a long distance walk, but don't fancy shlugging all the gear on my back - MSAC put the trip together for us, moving luggage from hotel to hotel along the Sound and arranging all the hotel reservations. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, even when we nearly missed our outbound ferry connection (oops … !!). My only suggestion on the walk is that it would be good to include breakfast at the hotels as you really have to have it, and it seems like a lot to pay out extra each day when there are five of you. Even if it was only a Continental breakfast, it would be better to include it, even if it meant increasing the price of the service and stay a little. Would also have liked to have been given a better map - ideally a topographical version rather than just a little cartoon-y leaflet.

We visited New Zealand during NZ winter. Malrborough Sound Adventure Company went out of their way in planning a five-day trip for us - even arranging for one hotel to remain open a few days longer this year so they could meet our travel schedule.
The walk on the Queen Charlotte Track was a trip of a life time. We will always remember it with great fondness. MSAC provided a wonderful guide and delivered our bags each day to the next lodge as we walked. We ended up with special needs during our trip which they gracefully and happily met. We feel lucky to have booked with them.

Pleasant views and met nice people on the boat. The tour had a lot of interest and they provided sun screen for those of us that forgot about the thin ozone in the southern hemisphere.
