Although it rained (as apparantly it does most days) the tour was great. Very professionally run tour. Great lunch and wonderful surroundings. Who could ask for anything more.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2012

was an amazing daytrip to say the least! i thought originally the price was too much for a guided walk but once you include the return ferry, a brilliant lunch in peaceful surroundings and the knowledge of the guide, it is quite justified!
if you only have one day free, i would highly recommend this daytrip for anyone who wants to see some of the world famous milford track
