The weather was bad and you could not see Mount Cook. I was hoping to take a helicopter flight but all flights were grounded because of the weather.
The driver/guide was excellent. The scenery was O.K. Long ride for limited scenery. Probably worth doing, but only if one is particularly interested in the Glacier. I've seen them before and been on one so there was novelty, which impacts my opinion. If time is an issue, then would skip and fly.
The main attraction we were looking forward to in this tour was the Mount Cook. And we got to spend just 50 minutes at the Hermitage hotel so we just had lunch there. The your should not mislead people by saying it's via Mt. Cook. The translator was rude at most times. Not recommended!
Not the best of trips the weather closed in and was raining for most of the day, couldnt actually see Mount Cook and the stop at the top was for 1 1/2 hours with nothing really to do as all flights cancelled. The other thing i thought was unfair was that the trip was more of a local bus not an organised tour as we stopped and started dropping and picking people up at differenct locations all day
was not worth the money at all. Most of the stops were at gift shops and while the commentary was decent it was not worth the money i paid for it.
