An awesome walk to the foot of the glacier. Had a great guide who told us lots about the glacial valley. Note that you do not walk on the glacier.
We had a fun time at Franz Josef ,The valley walk was educational and interesting the whole thing took more or less 3-4 hours. Our guide was friendly and we were able to get closer to the glacier. We were able to hold the glacier and take pictures on it.
We enjoyed the experience a great deal. Our guide made our trip to the glazier one to remember.
Our tour guide was fantastic! Good for all ages, and fabulous local knowledge! I would recommend this tour!

Amazing experience our guide took us to the rim of the glacier would highly recommend this tour.
Very informative guide led just the two of us on this interesting walk. We were able to go quite close to the glacier and appreciated it much more as we could ask questions and were shown aspects we wouldn't have noticed on our own.
A lovely valley walk to the glacier on paths dedicated to the tour with two excellent guides (Mike and Jasmine). Thoroughly recommended as a great introduction to the Franz Josef Glacier.
This was great value for money - not only did we get a good 3hr hour guided walk but also passes to get into the hot water pools which would have cost us 20 dollars each! We were also given a DVD about Franz Joseph so all in all a wonderful morning spent in a beautiful area of NZ.
I actually wrote this review under the glacier walk. Oops. Both are great. You see totally different things. Loved the small group size able to move quickly and see lots more than expected. Regarding the Glacier walk. Fantastic too...loved helicopter ride up. Do both. Very different.
Enjoyed this a lot our guide was friendly and full of stories and knowledge
This hike was awesome! We also had a fantastic guide which made the trip even more better! All I can say is DO IT! It is fantastic! The scenery is well worth the effort!
The valley walk was fantastic. The guide Chelsea was the best and to view the glacier was fantastic
