We really enjoyed the tour. The glaciers were stunning and so was the lake! It was a nice atmosphere since we were only 2 persons.

Andy was a fantastic guide! He is knowlegeable and we gave us good information about the flora, fauna and the glaciers. The weather was great and we had a clear view of the glacier. The hot chocolate with the glacier as a backdrop is something...More

We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting an informative tour of Fox Glacier. Our guide Rose was excellent and having a small group is a perfect way to enjoying such beautiful scenery. Thank you for making this memorable for our family.

We opted for the 3 hour Franz Josef Glacier Eco Tour. Our guide, Andy, was knowledgeable about the geology and the plants in the area. We really enjoyed our walk.

This was a great hike. Our “Heli-Hike” was canceled and we booked with Glacier Valley Eco Tours. Overall the hike was probably better than the Heli-Hike. We got expert information from our guide, Andy, and saw much more at a much lower price

The main track itself would be okay because it is graded and well maintained but the tour goes off the track. Some sections are uphill and fairly hard going because the ground is lose gravel.
