My group of six loved our Fox glacier hike. Blake was our guide and he MADE the experience! He showed us countless incredible ice forms including a waterfall, tiny geyser-like thing, a big ice cave, and a tiny ice cave we slithered through which made the exploring all the more exhilarating. My group included English and Chinese speakers, and Blake impressed us all with his outstanding Chinese while ensuring that everyone in the group had a jolly good time while staying safe on the ice.
Additionally, the helicopter ride was amazing, with breathtaking scenery all around. We were given all the gear we needed including legit thick socks, tramping boots, a waterproof jacket, and a waterproof backpack. The introduction/safety briefing was smooth and comprehensive, and when we returned to the site the wrap up was seamless as well.
Long story short, make sure you do the tour with Fox Glacier Guiding! It was easily one of the highlights of our two week exploration of the south island.
