Frequently Asked Questions

Where do we meet to start our tour?

  • Milford Guide operates from Te Anau, New Zealand.
  • My preference is to collect you from your accommodation in Te Anau. There is a box in the checkout procedure where you can enter the name of the place you are staying. If I have any doubt over where to find you I will be in contact by email or phone.
  • I could be there up to 10 minutes before our scheduled departure. I will be in a metallic grey Hyundai iMax van registration number GED361.
  • If you prefer I can collect you from the Fiordland Community Event Centre which is on the main street of Te Anau across the road from the Caltex garage and Subway, 20-22 Luxmore Drive, Te Anau.
