  • Fox Glacier tour was such an incredible experience. There are SO many different sights to see I'm the South Island, and certianly, this was one of the highlights! Our experience was even more special due to a proposal happening within our group! We loved every moment of it! From being surrounded by beautiful waterfalls and radiant ice, to flying through some of the most beautiful rugged mountains, this was one experience I will treasure forever! The helicopter pilots were incredible!
  • We were some of the lucky ones who got to go up as the weather turned rainy in the afternoon. But for the price I wish we could have been dropped off at one of the higher points. Our group spent a lot of time waiting and watching our nice tour guide to finish chopping steps for us to walk back on. I felt like we didn't get to see all that much for a 4 hour tour (the waterfall below). Nor did we talk that much about the glacier. I'm not sure that I would recommend it or go on it again. For the price I think there are more worthwhile things to do. It was an interesting experience though.
  • Brilliant company from start to finish. Flo was an ace guide and we got to see so much. We went in ice caves and had a good walk on the glacier. Would highly recommend. Thank you
  • The helicopter ride is very cool (although short: 10-15 minutes return). The length of the hike on ice very short: 560m on the GPS. We had to rush it because of bad weather coming our way so we walked the path in less than 1h... typically they do it in 3-4h so it must go at snail pace! Our guides were very friendly and the gears provided very good quality.
  • Friendly staff and great selection of souvenirs. Be careful the helicopter tours can't always go up on their scheduled times.
