    We planned to join the heli hike but due to weather we joined this terminal walk instead. Our tour guide, Iain is very nice and knowledgeable. Overall we enjoyed it very much.

    Fantastic walk to view Fox Glacier. Guides Jon and Kirsten were very knowledgeable and helpful. Would recommend to everyone!
  • MENG I 29 Jul 2018
    Guides are very professional to introduce and share all the way, making hiking fun. However, I thought that the hiking will see the glaciers more closely, but in fact many people can climb and see on their own, the angle is the same! But for the backpacker, it is less convenient to walk back and forth to the entrance for an hour, there will be a special car you have passed. And there will be free borrowing of clothing and shoes, which is a reassuring reliance for people who are not familiar with Yamagata.

    The Flowserve Glacier is a very good tourism experience. The tour guide explained the history of many glaciers and gained a lot of photos while absorbing new knowledge.

    The tour guide explains the glacier changes very carefully and also takes us into glaciers where people can not enter. I think it is a great experience! recommend!

    We booked a helicopter on foot, but because of the weather was canceled, so we participated in the Fox Glacier Valley tour. It is very interesting to see glaciers from different angles. Our tour guide is great - knowledgeable, talkative, interesting, and the most popular New Zealand local character we've ever seen. Thanks for the tour guide! You let us have a very meaningful day!
