The knowledge our tour guide had of the environment/area and fixability on ensuring the tour was enjoyed by all
Good Mt. Cook tour programme for short-time visitor
Pornpop_U, Jun 2021
The tour company and tour guide were very nice. The tour programme allows sufficient time to complete roundtrip hiking in the Hooker Valley even though the weather on the day was mostly showery so that we could not see the whole Mt. Cook but we had great time hiking with pictures in a showery weather.
Great way to spend your day
TIMOTHY_R, Feb 2021
Excellent tour with a delightful guide. Highly recommend the tour company as well as the hike up to a glacier lake. The atmosphere is magical.
Wow - What a day!
Jill_H, Jun 2020
We were so lucky, it was a beautiful crisp winters day and the mountains were just stunning. The tour was great fun and our guide, Kreig, was very friendly, informative and helpful. The long drive was easy with plenty of photo stops, refreshments, funny videos and the odd sing along. When we arrived at Aoraki, Kreig gave us lots of options on which tracks to take for different experiences and how to make the best of our time there. Thoroughly recommend.
A must book tour

A fantastic trip with loys of beautiful scenery. Out tour guide Cal made the drive go by fast by sharing loads of information and keeping the tour fun. The side trip to Tasman Glacier was an amazing bonus.
Amazing

Absolutely loved the trip. Krieg was fabulous and everything about the trip was perfect! It was the perfect amount of time for the hikes and I don't know why there aren't more trips put there from Queenstown!
