    Couldn't have been better

    Cliff was our guide and was absolutely brilliant! Learnt a lot about the valley, had some gorgeous views and shared some hilarious stories. He adapted the tour to suite the 3 of us. Was nice to be taken off the beaten track :)

    Good Tour, Great Rain Gear

    We had a great time on the tour, in spite of the very wet weather. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful, but more importantly, they provided us with heavy duty rain gear.

    Lisa was our guide for the day and she was entertaining, knowledgeable and most definitely caring for all in the team. It was a fun 3 hours with her and we learnt a lot about the glacier valley. I would recommend this to all.
