Very wet and rainy the first few days but still amazing. If you can go, do it. There are often cancellations so you might be able to go last-minute.
We were very lucky because of the great weather during our four days of walking. Great views and all of the three huts are placed very beautifully.
Beautiful, well maintained trails, rangers were nice. It was good to have the guided huts next to the non guided shelters.
Not changed for 100 years - love that.
Stunning walk, well set up, beautiful scenery, crazy sandflies everywhere, cover everything - even your face.
Despite pouring rain and imminent snow, the walk afforded stunning views of the Sound and informative signs.
The weather did not provide us with the best of walking terrain but once we were wet it did not matter as the views engulfed us from all angles.
More walks are needed. It is impressive though.
Walked around the nature trail in the evening after everyone had left. Beautiful. Even with the sandflies it was amazing.
Beautiful walk, clean huts, rangers take good care of the track and are very open for questions/information. One downside is the mattresses in the huts.

Epic. Lots of waterfalls. Long days, no rush, communal huts at the end of each day. Incredibly scenic.
Little expensive for the huts on popular hikes but it for the walk quality.
A little expensive but would do it again and again - they are incredible!
Very nice track, we saw every kind of nature, the rainforest (we were lucky with the weather). Waterfalls. The third day was hard and it is a bit expensive.
Nice track, amazing landscapes, but too expensive and weather is too unpredictable.
Wet and bad weather for us but a nice experience.
I can't understand why everyone hasn't given this a 10/10. I did it in winter so avoided the crowds and would rate this among the top 10 walks in the country and since there are so many amazing walks, even 10th would be a high acolade. A moderate level of fitness would definitely add to your enjoyment as would reliable waterproof gear and a tolerance for sandflies. Access via Dore pass is challenging in winter but doable for those with good fitness and a little experience in alpine navigation
Really beautiful, hard enough, view of great at arrival.
Nothing to see!! Four days of bush walk and no views. Not worth any dollars as payment.
Great landscape, too many people on the track and in the huts.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Hot walk but nice.
Great! Fantastic track, had good luck with the weather. Would recommend to everyone.
2 and a half days of trees and one mountain day definitely not the 'best walk in the world'.

Really enjoyed this, great views and okay huts.
Really nice track, everything in good condition (track, accommodation), and awesome views. Too expensive.
Very nice track, five rangers. Trail is clean and well maintained! Even the toilets!!
Day walk. Good choice if you do not have that much time to get to know the track and the nature around Te Anau.
Well maintained with very helpful DOC staff. Clearly signed and lodges well spaced (as well as shelters). Brilliant scenery and well deserving of its status.
Awesome track, bit pricey though, people at DOC friendly and last but not least absolutely stunning landscapes.

DOC staff are very well trained - wish they had beer though!! Huts were clean, facilities well maintained. Last day is rockier than expected. Beautiful waterfalls! Expensive!!
Nice group, prices could be a bit cheaper, excellent views of waterfalls and rainforest.
Robert & Bridget Holden
Awesome, well worth the long wet hike!!!
John & Ray Calder
Incredible walk. The only bad thing was the cold in the huts at night.
Great track, but huts aren't ready for snow in the beginning of the season. Really cold weather does not fit with the huts. Choose summer instead of early spring.
Very nice, great quality track and huts. But please cut the 'hut talks' short.
Awesome walk, fantastic scenery, comfy accommodation, delicious food and wonderful guides.
Excellent scenery, excellent hut wardens, excellent visitor centres and staff. Hut kitchen and dining areas too small.
Just fantastic - except for the sandflies!
Definitely one of the 100 things to do before you die. Hard work and you need to be fit.
David and Karen
The best!! Hard going, cold weather, good DOC staff.
Excellent all round. We knew we were getting basic accommodation but well organised and clean - rangers knowledgeable, also tracks well looked after.
Great walk, lots and lots of rain but still beautiful, good DOC guidelines (daily), great huts.
Breathtaking scenery from fiords, mountains and waterfalls.
Everyone should do this track at least once in their life! Even if it rains:).
Dr Dorthe Bossow
Great walk! 2 days of rain with amazing waterfalls, 1 day with sunshine and blue sky.
Darrell & Michelle Lamb
Te Anau Downs to Milford Sound. Booking with DOC was easy, staff helpful, rangers very good, hut facilities great, natural environment. Awesome!
Kevin & Chris
Lives up to its reputation as the greatest walk in the world.
WOW! What a great trip. Great huts, a long walk, beautiful boat trip at the end. Just a bit wet at times and in certain places.
A hard but rewarding trek. Scenery outstanding. If possible, go wtih Milton Tramping Club, outstanding organisation and brilliant fellow trekkers.
Easy to book, awesome national park, nice ranger with understandable accent.
Wonderful part of NZ, amazing scenery, good track, DOC huts very good
Really good track - only sad thing first day walk is very short & last day in comparison too long. Park watchers (DOC) excellent.
milford track inguided walk great walk - good people going with us - much fun.
very wet in shore it would be very special in fine weather.
Perfect weather, great friends made along the way and views of a lifetime. Truly the world's finest walk.
Peter and Dianne McKinnon
An easy walk if FOOD + FITNESS preparation done. Stunning, varied, weather changes create the challenge. Travel light.
Fantastic scenery, good en route accommodation and food, cruise on Milford Sound stunning. But it does sometimes rain - heavily.
Track marks, nice huts, clean and tidy; shame to see no pots; friendly rangers giving lots of track information (Ross, Kathy, Ian).
Some sun and rain - both great experiences.
