We had a fantastic time. Anujk was a very informative and experienced tour guide. We were provided with snacks and water. Anujk made sure to made us feel welcome and attended to. The mountains and lakes were absolutely breathtaking and there was snow and ice in winter which is a special sight in New Zealand. Everything looked picture perfect when we went. The hike to see Tasman Glacier was not too difficult albeit a tad slippery when descending, and the view at the top was very pretty. We recommended bringing warm gloves and shoes with good traction. Overall we really enjoyed our day with Anujk and we recommend this trip.

Trails we explored were Blue Lakes & Tasman Glacier View and Tasman Glacier Terminal Lake (to see the icebergs). Both have fantastic views during winter. This trip wouldn’t have been amazing without the excellent service of our guide, Anuj. Thank you Anuj!

Very informative guide. Great recommendations. Great views of lake tekapo, lake pukaki & the southern alps. Highly recommend if you have a day to spare and would like to sit back & relax while your guide takes you to & back from Christchurch.

It was such an amazing experience, our guide Anujk was very kind, he has a big knowledge of the places and he made our trip quite comfortable. I highly recommend this activity
