Kia Ora and thank you so much for your review. We appreciate your feedback regarding the dinner at the local restaurant in Mt Cook, unfortunately the supplier did let us down and we have therefore changed this for future tours. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the trip, that was a treat seeing humpback whales too! Tim is a great guide to tour with, all our guests agree. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

Visiting New Zealand is something that everyone should do. When you look at the two main islands on a map it looks like a week's visit should be sufficient. When you get there you realize that a month is too short a visit. To get the most out of the adventure you need a god
