Such a shame. Could have been fantastic

So check in was fun. The staff were super chill good people.. We boarded the Chopper. Again the staff and pilot were real nice folk. Then we landed on the Glacier and the Helicopter flew away. Oh dear. Our guide who looked like he had just turned 25 had a real chip on his shoulder. He acted like he did not want to be there. The group was about 12 people. Elderly folk. Overweight folk. As we did not have ski poles to walk, i think this was the issue. We just did not have enough time as no one could walk on the glacier with there snow spike shoes.. So it was a real issue. We were not really allowed to take photo's as the guide was hostile, as every thing seemed by the miniute for Helicopter pick up. Very annoyed with myself. As i did read reviews and some other customers wrote what my experience was like. Guide just seemed like he wanted to be some where else. I intend to go back to Glacier end of the year, and fly with a different Company. As i won't let this one off bad experience put me of..

Amazing experience on the glacier

We were a group of 6 people including our greate guide Anna. Weather was absolutely perfect, without any cloud in the sky. We flew up to the Tasman glacier then we were walking on ice with crampons about two hours and then helicopter picked us on a different spot and we flew back. Anna told us a lot of interesting facts about glaciers and mountains and we felt safe for the whole time. We had many opportunities to make unique photos. Walking wasn't very hard, so it was more relaxing trip. We certainly recommend this experience.
