Its was raining heavily that day...
, Mar 2018
Its was raining heavily that day, the tour guide should have call off the hike because the rain that give rise to rapids waterfall and gushing waters stream along the hiking route. It is life-threatening conditions hike because of the rain conditions, why the guide did not call it off I did not know? The tour details did not specific need hiking shoes and water proof jacket and operate in all weather conditions when I booked the tour weeks ago. But they change it on the website when I re-visited today. Any way, it is important to consider the life risking hiking conditions caused to hikers during raining conditions!

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. Please be aware, the safety of our guests is out top priority. This was a very wet day but there were no safety concerns, and the conditions were definitely not life-threatening. We will be reviewing our information on Viator, to ensure clients are more prepared for the conditions in the future. However, please note we do operate the walk in the rain as Milford Sound is one of the wettest places in the world - its what gives us the incredible greens and lush vegetation.
