Even though it was pouring with rain, I rated the walk as very interesting and informitive, Our guide "Brook" was great, and went out of her way to help me, as I was recovering from a fractured ankle, the free DVD was informitive and a nice memory to recieve at the end of wet hike. regards Wayne Berry
The guide was knowledgable, and also very safety conscious. I'm not the fittest, and he took us on a walk that matched my abilities and still gave an amazing look at the glacier. Being able to use their waterproof gear saved us some soggy trousers, and the entire things was wonderful. STRONGLY RECOMMEND.
We enjoyed the walk to the glacier emensley even in the rain. Our guide was a real hottie and i wanted to bring him home for my daughter. The scenery was stunning. Our guide was full of knowledge and answered all our questions.
It was an enjoyable walk. Our guide was informative and fun. Would have preferred to go further to the glacier and do more at waterfalls than to walk to the duck pond at the end of the trip to make up the time.
Weather was not particularly good, but it was worth doing anyway. The guide was very informative and very interesting and I learnt a lot. As I am 63, I was a bit worried that I had taken on too much, but it was really great and I would recommend this walk with no hesitation.
Awesome experienced especially a nice tour guide. Thanks to him that made our tour very memorable one, though our way back the rain starts pouring! Above all it was amazing to be near the Glacier. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!
This was a great hike. Wonderful sunny day and a very knowledgable guide, whose name I forget. Our guide knew the local plants and pointed them out to us. He even went down to the flowing stream and found us a couple pieces of the icy glacier that had broken off. The only negative was when we got back to the shuttle pick up our bus did not arrive for another 45 minutes. We were told the driver had misplace the bus' keys.
Great guide Lauren she told us about vegetation and wildlife , it was relaxed and friendly definitely recommend this walk to everyone who visits Franz Joseph glacier
Did we have the right shoes? What if it rained? And what if the eight of us had different paces and abilities?Not to worry. Any gear you needed was provided. Slickers, boots, small packs...and the guides were amenable to splitting the group into a more aggressive and more leisurely groups. So, when it did rain...we had the right gear and enjoyed the walk immensely.
Enjoyed the experience. Leader informative, friendly and supportive.
Very enjoyable. Whilst you can walk to the glacier by yourself it was nice to have a guide who could explain a lot of the geographical features that we were seeing. Being on a tour also meant that we could proceed past the public limits and get that little bit closer to the glacier.
Fully worth it, the guide was very helpful and he had good knowledge of the terrain, it was not as tough as we thought, but you need to be fit to undertake it. Trip to the Glacier is not complete without it. Would have undertaken the full day tour if we had more time.
