The trip to Milford sound was exciting enough but to have Brian the driver and guide giving us information and advice made the trip even more memorable. He was so friendly and helpful throughout the day. Brian made it that bit special.More

My wife and I have six kids (8 people). We would really love to go on the Half-Day Walter Peak Horse Trek as a family. Our youngest kids will be 9 & 8 years old respectively when we make the trip at the end of December 2017. Is there any way you could possibly accommodate us?
