Wow! I did the helicopter tour around all three glaciers and it was awesome! The drive from Christchurch was not good though so if your going to do it drive from queenstown!
Fantastic...Really enjoyed the whole trip as the guides made the extra effort to bring us through the caves during the hike. Highly recommended.
I would recommend this trip to anybody as it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had. The helicopter ride was enough of a thrill in itself, but the hike too was just a fantastic experience. Our guides, San and Lauren, were knowledgeable, professional and sympathetic to the needs of our group which had varying degrees of ability. I was given all the equipment I needed before I left and felt warm and comfortable the whole time. The only regret I had was having to come back down!
It was an exciting and memorable experience, and I would recommend all to enjoy the experience.
FANTASTIC!!!! An amazing experience with incredibly knowledgable and fun guides. So stoked that I got to do this!
Heli Hike was fantastic throughout. The guide was brilliant explaining how glacier was formed. I couldn't ask for more.
We missed out on doing this trip four years ago becouse the weather beat us but it was worth the wait. We had a brilliant guide (Cliff) who knew his stuff and encouraged us throughout to make the best of our time on the glacier. One of the best bits was the flight up as we went up over the glacier and then went into a sharp decent to where we were dropped off.
We had a really good time and our guide was excellent. the weather was perfect too although that cant be atributed to Viator!
Excellent guide with great sense of humour made it especially enjoyable trip.
He encouraged and helped the more cautious members of the party and led us to some beautiful areas of blue ice.
The helicopter flight to and from the glacier was spectacular
It was brilliant. Highly recommend it. A highlight of our holiday on the South Island
Really enjoyed the helicopter ride over the glacier. The walk on the glacier was exciting and amazing. The glacier guide was very capable but also very friendly. A great experience!
