Our Kiwi guide was Matt and I am not sure that I can find enough words in my vocabulary to praise him and the way he conducted the tour. His extensive knowledge, expertise, sense of humour, kindness, driving ability and care in the way he looked after us was five star. He went out of his way every day to try and accommodate everyone's needs. For me the highlights of the trip were the catamaran cruise, the Milford Sound plane ride, the kayaks and the visits to the homes for lunch. The hotel choices were great.
