    Well Worth it!
    Irene_E, Mar 2023
    Going to see the lakes & Mt Cook is a glorious day! The landscaping is breathtaking! Tony was an excellent guide/driver. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history and the nature of the area. The snacks and lunches were delicious. It is a long day from Christchurch, but well worth it!
    An amazing experience

    Brent made my last day in NZ very special and memorable. A funny and very kind guide. He even managed to get me on a flight even though everything was booked. Thank you for this day - it could not have been a better experience.
    Amazing day trip to Mt. Cook with great guide!

    Our guide Tony was exceptional! He was very knowledgable which provided great background on the sites we stopped at. The scenery was amazing from the drive there, to Mount Cook itself. Would highly recommend doing this if you can!
    Great day at Mount Cook

    Had an amazing day with our guide and driver Brent. It was a long day but well worth it. We saw beautiful lakes but the highlight was walking through the Hooker Valley in the Mount Cook National Park. Brent explained our options made sure we got to where we needed to be and picked us up on time. He even provided us with delicious salads after our walk which were very welcome. Would highly recommend this tour.
    Amazing part of the world

    Amazing day with so many stunning sights. It’s a long day, but worth it if you’re pushed for time in Christchurch and want to see these astonishing parts of New Zealand. Our tour guide (Tony) was amazing and so attentive to the group.
    Mt Cook, it was a pleasure

    The whole day really. Pick ups were on time & precise. Guide kept us informed from start to finish. Nice group of people on the small bus. The views were amazing. Taken to all the best views.
    Too rushed

    Very long day 13 hour trip Christchurch and back but they only allow 2 hours for hiking a 3 hour walk!!! no time for lunch, everything a bit rushed. Recommend staying the night and doing the 2 walking tracks.
    Amazing experience!

    Absolutely amazing experience with CheekyKea! Each other stop point was more beautiful than the other. Our guide was very friendly and with a great sense of humor which made this trip even more enjoyable. They provided us with water, welcome snack pack and even a lunch. Also, the minibus had free WiFi, not very stable, but we had it and this is great! Around 8am we had some coffee stop with a possibility to buy yummy newzealand pies. The way to the attractions is approximately 300km, but is absolutely worth it! We started at 6am and back around 7:30pm.

    Ne vale la pena

    Il tour prevede lunghi spostamenti con frequenti soste in punti panoramici per foto. Ma già il viaggio stesso merita il tempo speso, attraversare i diversi panorami neozelandesi è di per sé un'esperienza. Le visite ai laghi sono veloci e prevedono soste nei punti panoramici, ma la parte migliore è il monte Cook, nel quale è prevista una sosta un po' più lunga che consente una veloce passeggiata (poco impegnativa) attraversando tre ponti sospesi. é un modo piacevole di spendere una intera giornata immersi nella natura neozelandese e scattare foto
