Recently completed the Milford and Routeburn Tracks with Ultimate Hikes. Personally I preferred the Routeburn Track but then I like hills and mountains. Either of these tracks could be done solo they are clearly marked and don't need map reading skills. However doing this with Ultimate Hikes you get hot showers, very good food, comfortable beds and cold beer/wine (the latter you pay for separately). In addition you get knowledgeable guides who for the most part will act with the lightest touch if you are an experienced hiker, or take a more hands on role if you want it.
We were fortunate with the weather and the people in the group got on well. For the hiker who wants to be alone on the tack, the guides allow you to walk at your own pace so you can easily walk most of the day without seeing many other people.
UH are not particularly cheap but then I don't think they were that expensive either. As a solo traveller I enjoyed meeting like minded people from around the world and would have no hesitation in recommending UH to others
