WILDTHENTIC TRAVELER TESTIMONIAL

The best...My girlfriend Amanda and I had an amazing day kayaking on the Milford Sound. The views and weather were incredible, as well as the animals and waterfalls we saw. Our guide Isla (hope I’m spelling that right) was kind, and kept things at a comfortable pace. Well worth the price and the drive from Te Anau. 5 stars!.... 10 stars!!!Thanks again for a great day you guys. "
