Mt Cook Small Group Adventure Tour - Departing from Queenstown
, Aug 2019
It was a perfect day to go on this tour! The tour does rely on the weather. When I booked the tour, they did cancel my initial date due to bad weather, but was definitely worth the wait. The tour guide (Krieg) was friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable about the Mountains and general facts about New Zealand! It was a small group when travelling to Mt. Cook which gave more time to ask questions and get to know the group better! Its an experience that i believe everyone should witness because pictures do not do the trip justice.
Went with our guide Krieg who was so knowledgeable and flexible. It had snowed heavily during the latter half of our trip and he was super flexible in giving us suggestions of things we can safely do.
Fortunately, we made it to walk and see the glacier lake. The walk and the lake were beautiful. Would recommend.
I enjoyed the small group tour last Tuesday with Cheeky Kiwi Travel (oops, I forgot the tour guide/driver's name). We don't need to hurry in each stop and we did a little short hikes in two places. He made sure our trip was all worth it. I recommended Cheeky Kiwi Travel for your trip to Queenstown.
Our Tour Guide Dane (Daniel) was very nice, friendly and very informative.
Mt Cook and Lake Pukaki was spectacular. Chicken Pie was the best and Salmon Farm was cool. Lunch buffet at Alpine Centre was good, a lot of options.
It was a relaxing and happy trip with the group (Jade, Flo, Lane, Hunter & Joe).
Highly recommend this tour with Dane.
