    This was absolutely fantastic. Easily the best tour I have ever done- worth every penny. We were lucky to have a stunning day so we were out on the glacier for 7 hours- ice climbing the whole time. No one in our group had done ice climbing before but we all picked it up quickly.

    It was a exciting trip. Our group of 4 had fun. The guide to participants ratio was just nice. We were happy we made the choice to climb up fox glaciers. One of our highlights in New Zealand!

    We chose to come to Fox climbing adventure. Because the previous few days of the trip was canceled, the next few days the weather has been bad, so this time we are very excited. Today the weather is very good, big sun, the clouds rarely. Helicopter is very shocking, our tour guide is great, omniscient. Climbing ice is absolutely challenging, learning is also very cool. When we climb almost practicing, the tour guide began to take us along the glacier ice. He also told us where to shoot some better photos. That day really learned a lot, very memorable experience!

    When we plan to go to New Zealand, we must decide to come here! Believe me, it will be an unforgettable experience. At first, we would wonder if we were strong enough to climb the Fox Glacier, but our professional tour guide taught us step by step (many many times), took care of us well and encouraged us all the time. Finally, we completed this impossible task! The Helicopter travel is also great, if you can sit next to the captain even better! The
