It was such a unique and wild experience!

The day began rocky because we were sent the wrong pick up directions. we waited at the Kiwi Cafe until a few minutes after 9:00 and then scrambled to figure out where the bus was. Someone at another agency connected with Go Orange and directed us to drive to Manapouri! After that we met the boat and we had a great day and saw some of the world we only read about. The drivers and crew were so knowledgeable and made the day rich! They worked hard to make sure we saw wildlife on a very wet, traditional Fiordland day! We met some new friends from India also! they

Much better than Milford (what more can I say??!)

We did the drive up to Milford Sound the day before and promptly canceled our boat trip and booked this instead! The drive to Milford's worth it, but for a boat trip into what genuinely feels like wilderness (on a small boat and without constant helicopters!) BOOK THIS! It was great value, including a boat trip and a very amusing coach trip in a geriatric bus. The free tea and coffee on both boat trips is a winner :) Loved the experience - it's strangely tiring so I wouldn't plan anything too ambitious later in the day...!

No Doubt About This Trip It Is Beautiful!

Our group of four picked this trip after hearing about the beautiful scenery and quality of the trip. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Tony, a retired firefighter was informative, funny and catered to our every need. We appreciated being on a small boat and not seeing other boats in the sound. It was pristine and beautiful. I would hightly recommend this tour!

The most awesome scenery made this the highlight of our NZ trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed all phases of the day's outing - great commentary on the things we saw. We especially loved the 'Sounds of Silence' - five minutes of no human noise at all - jus the birds, the breeze and the water.

Great trip, very friendly and helpful guides. Excellent day!

Very informative tour, nice clean boats and helpful friendly staff. Tour started and finished on time and tour of Doubtful Sound beautiful. Would recommend the tour and Go Orange to anyone visiting the sounds.
