The breaks are a bit too short and the trip could be quite tiring if you have a young child travelling with you. Not very happy about the way we're treated in relation to other Caucasian passengers.

The trip was OK but we were left in the road with our suitcases when we reached Mt Cook Village, not in our actual hotel Mt Cook Lodge. Mt Cook is a small village so drop off at our lodging would have been a plus.

the driver is really good and experienced. I enjoy his commentaries on the road.
