The tour was amazing and it ended up being a beautiful day out! The only thing, is the roads are extremely windy. If you get motionsickness at all, would recommend you take something before you travels! I also wish at some of the stops there would be a little bit more time to enjoy, but overall amazing tour! Would definitely go again.

I had not yet visited aoraki mount cooke national park because of the bad weather. A few days later it was still a beautiful day. So we still saw Mount Cooke. This from Christchurch is a long one with several stops, but with good weather well worth it.

The tour guide/driver was a fountain of knowledge. He was so passionate about the area and looked after us all very well. I would recommend this tour, the places were well chosen

Amazing, the guide Anju is awesome! He gives you amazing insight and is thoughtful about planning the day since we didn't get the best weather. I loved it!

Great scenery. The lakes and Mount Cook Views were stunning.
