My partner and I did the Adventurer: Tasman Glacier Held-hike back in April, and we had an amazing time! Firstly, communication before the trip was great, with multiple questions answered for us regarding which trip to do and what we'd get to see. Check in, and preparing you to go up in the helicopter up to the glacier was seamless and safe. Richard Bottomley was our guide, and he was brilliant, a great mix of keeping you safe, entertained and informed. The time on the glacier was amazing, exploring new, and old, ice caves within the glacier, along with exploring on foot across it. The heli flight on and off the glacier was also amazing, the pilot (can't remember his name, but was living in Christchurch) was really competent and gave great commentary. Overall a brilliant and safe experience, that I highly recommend you do if you're in the Mount cook/Aoraki region!

Had a surreal few hours on the Tasman glacier thanks to great weather and our awesome tour guides Rich and Tom. The experience has cemented some nice memories for my partner and I. Seeing the magnificent Tasman glacier between New Zealand's tallest mountains must surely be considered one of the best views our country has to offer.

Awesome adventure doing the Heli hike on the Tasman Glacier, Rich was our guide who gave us a safety briefing and made sure we were comfortable walking with crampons, they made it so easy walking on the glacier. Rich was very knowledgeable and had some great stories very passionate about what he does which made it very interesting for us all. Saw some amazing ice holes carved out of the glacier by the running water, beautiful colours in the ice holes so smooth. Really did not wont our time on the glacier to end it was breathtaking, we were so lucky to have a stunning day. The helicopter flight to and from the glacier was very smooth and the landing on the ice, thank you to our pilot Tom, great job. This a trip well worth doing you will not be disappointed awesome adventure, would love to do this again. Thank you to all the team for making this happen, Jason, Tom & Rich.
