Our driver/guide Cameron was the best! He was nice and knowledgable, shared a lot of info about the area. The stops on the way and back were great - we managed to both get some pretty cool views and visit the restrooms. We opted for the basic package - Mt Cook tour only, so we had 3h free time to do any walks. We decided to do the best one - the Hooker Valley Track. It's mostly flat and you stay in the valley, so you don't need warm clothes or hiking shoes for it, it can actually get pretty hot, and then change to very windy, so you should dress in layers. The 3 hours are just enough to do the Hooker Valley Track, without making long breaks or having time to eat, so I wish we had at least 30min to 1h more, so we can actually sit and enjoy.

Our skipper and ship crews are all doing an amazing job while we were cruising. Lunch and underwater observatory was amazing. Jamie our driver, was very informative and welcoming. He was so fun from the start to the end of our trip. He shares a lot of information while hopping in and out of the vehicle. He is so friendly and sees to it that we were all looked after. Can't forget his wave wishing us a fantastic cruise.And when we went down the cruise ship he was already there waiting for us. Salute to Jamie (Southern Discovery driver) for bringing smiles and fun memories.

This was the best thing I’ve done in queenstown and maybe even ever! The views and experience was worth every penny ( and I’m a broke college student so I don’t joke around with that ahaha ). I strongly suggest doing this as it is the perfect mix of thrill and sight seeing!

This was a super fun trip … it is a long day (we came from Queenstown) but the views are stunning and well worth it. We enjoyed the ride on the coach — much easier to see everything and our guide (Ian) was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this trip!

It was excellent. I highly recommend it. Beautiful place to visit
