Had a fantastic time with Jeff from T&Ts. The drive was super entertaining the whole time with a few stops along the way to Milford Sound. Definitely worth it to take a break from driving to enjoy all the scenery.
We used Trips n Tramps for a trip out to Milford Sound from Te Anau and we were very impressed with our guide's (Steve) knowledge and friendliness. We were very lucky in that my wife and I were the only two traveling with Steve (weather not great) and so we had his undivided attention but we couldn't fault his manner and relaxed nature. Would highly recommend to others.

1/2 day Milford Sound walks. Really nice friendly guide. Well organised. Really small group. Guide was new in the area but tried to give us the best experience.

Good for small group activity - very good value and more stops and personal attention.
Small group, very personal, many information and very friendly.
Great commentaries and scenic opportunities.
Trips 'N Tramps on their Great Day Out from Te Anau to Milford Sound was the highlight of our two weeks in New Zealand! The drive was beautiful, and we got to enjoy the almost two hour trip because John drove the small but comfortable van. His tour patter was informative and engaging, with time for questions and quiet to enjoy the scenery. In Milford, we got on a blue "yacht" which motored into the sound. Milford Sound is spectacularly beautiful. The majestic mountains plunge straight down into the sea with one major waterfall taller than Niagra Falls. The boat cruises down the fjord to the open sea, where mollyhawks were circling. The on-ship lunch was fine, and coffee was available at no charge throughout the cruise. The cruise guide talked about the flora and fauna, but was not intrusive.
After the cruise we went on the optional half hour helicopter ride up the mountains (not included in the tour price). This was probably the biggest thrill of our trip and the closest our family got to participating in an Xtreme sport while in New Zealand! The helicopter landed on the top of one mountain on a glacier and the six of us passengers got off and ran around. The views were spectacular.
The afternoon promised four hour round trip hike up a mountain provided us with even more spectacular views. When we returned, John had made us all tea from the tea tree plant, which was delicious, as well as providing biscuits.
On the way back to Te Anau, John stopped several times to show us local sights, including the Mirror Lakes. At each stop we had enough time to really enjoy the views and to go for short walks. He was as pleasant and informative on our way back as he had been on our way out in the morning. At the end of the day, we all agreed that this was one tour that deserved its name: Great Day Out. Our entire family highly recommends seeing Milford Sound with Trips 'N Tramps, and we suggest you ask to see if John is available to be your tour guide.
Nice cruise, nice guides - very enthusiastic. Good services on board. Good information on the way.
