A great trip on Doubtful Sound. There was very little traffic with no other sizeable vessels on the water and this ensured that we could fully appreciate the magnificent views and the opportunity to see wildlife etc

The tour was a great view of the country side in New Zealand. I wish we were able to do the power house tour. I would recommend this tour if you are going in the area.
