My boyfriend and I booked this day trip from Christchurch and had a wonderful experience. When we first booked the tour didn't have the minimum numbers to run on the date we'd selected, but I found Parul in their reservation department very helpful and we were lucky that it was confirmed the day we flew down from Hamilton.

We were celebrating our fourth anniversary and had previously been to Mount Cook but had been very unlucky with the weather and didn't get the experience we'd hoped, so this was our second chance to repeat the trip and (hopefully) see the mountains.

Our guide was Anujk and he was lovely! We both work in tourism and agreed that he was very engaging, clear with our itinerary, and managed our expectations around the weather very professionally. In the end we only missed out on a viewpoint at Lake Pukaki due to the mist, but we completely lucked out with Mount Cook and the Tasman Glacier!

We had lunch at the heritage hotel overlooking snow-capped mountains, and while the walk to the glacier does involve a few hundred steps, it was worth the climb! My boyfriend braved the scramble down to the edge of the lake for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity and the views were out of this world! We're so glad we gave the trip another chance, it will be one we're unlikely to ever forget!

The Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki, and Mt. Cook views were just simply spectacular. So lucky to have a nice, warm weather today. Our tour guide/driver, Anujk, was excellent! He was very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The service he provided was superb from pick up to drop off. We will definitely come back to South Island and do more tours with NZSI. If you are making an itinerary, I highly recommend you include this full day tour on your to do list. It was 100% the highlight of our South Island trip! :-)

Beautiful day trip with great views.
There were a few stops along the way that made the trip even more special. You have plenty of time on your lunch break to check out the visitors center. It’s pretty cool and worth the stop.

Our driver was very nice and informative. It didn't feel like a very long drive to me. Refreshments were given. We were given enough time in the lupine flower field and glacier walking trail. The buffet lunch was excellent.
