  • Pretty good place to visit but very pricey as only one company does this. The guide were really nice and scenery stunning. You get to touch ice and see glaciers. Kids loved the boat experience and eating ice. We also got lucky (if that’s what u call it??) and saw some ice collapse off the face.
  • Unforgettable, best experience in NZ south island, possible to touch, taste (purity) 400-year-old iceberg, see the terminal face of Tasman Glacier, which will disappear in 40 years. Kids absolutely loved it, good educational adventure and unique experience.
  • GE Guides are helpful and informative. Was fantastic to learn about glaciers. Was so much fun.
  • It is a good place to go, but it is not same from AD pictures. Still good to go with family. Kids will love it.
  • Had a fantastic experience. Walk to the jetty was an easy walk. Guide was helpful and informative. We were lucky as an ice berg had just broken off and we got to see it roll. An experience everyone should have. Lots of memories to take away
