Our guide Anusj was amazing! Polite, friendly and knowledgeable. We had amazing weather and the change in lunch venue was also perfect. Highly recommend.

Despite the fact that when we arrived at Mt Cook it was cloudy and pouring, we had an awesome time. As we couldn't go on the 45 minute hike due to the weather, Anujk stopped at other viewing points/ outlooks and even a lavender field. Awesome guide - really knowledgeable and made sure to tailor the tour to our liking.

Amazing scenery, particularly at Mt. Cook National Park. Our guide was outstanding. He was very accommodating about stopping for photos and making sure our day was great. It was a long but very enjoyable day in a nicely furnished van. Our guide also provided snacks and beverages.
