Good Mt. Cook tour programme for short-time visitor
Pornpop_U
, Jun 2021
The tour company and tour guide were very nice. The tour programme allows sufficient time to complete roundtrip hiking in the Hooker Valley even though the weather on the day was mostly showery so that we could not see the whole Mt. Cook but we had great time hiking with pictures in a showery weather.

Excellent tour with a delightful guide. Highly recommend the tour company as well as the hike up to a glacier lake. The atmosphere is magical.

We were so lucky, it was a beautiful crisp winters day and the mountains were just stunning. The tour was great fun and our guide, Kreig, was very friendly, informative and helpful. The long drive was easy with plenty of photo stops, refreshments, funny videos and the odd sing along. When we arrived at Aoraki, Kreig gave us lots of options on which tracks to take for different experiences and how to make the best of our time there. Thoroughly recommend.

A fantastic trip with loys of beautiful scenery. Out tour guide Cal made the drive go by fast by sharing loads of information and keeping the tour fun. The side trip to Tasman Glacier was an amazing bonus.

Absolutely loved the trip. Krieg was fabulous and everything about the trip was perfect! It was the perfect amount of time for the hikes and I don't know why there aren't more trips put there from Queenstown!

Mt Cook Small Group Adventure Tour - Departing from Queenstown
connornixon
, Aug 2019
It was a perfect day to go on this tour! The tour does rely on the weather. When I booked the tour, they did cancel my initial date due to bad weather, but was definitely worth the wait. The tour guide (Krieg) was friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable about the Mountains and general facts about New Zealand! It was a small group when travelling to Mt. Cook which gave more time to ask questions and get to know the group better! Its an experience that i believe everyone should witness because pictures do not do the trip justice.

Went with our guide Krieg who was so knowledgeable and flexible. It had snowed heavily during the latter half of our trip and he was super flexible in giving us suggestions of things we can safely do. Fortunately, we made it to walk and see the glacier lake. The walk and the lake were beautiful. Would recommend.

I enjoyed the small group tour last Tuesday with Cheeky Kiwi Travel (oops, I forgot the tour guide/driver's name). We don't need to hurry in each stop and we did a little short hikes in two places. He made sure our trip was all worth it. I recommended Cheeky Kiwi Travel for your trip to Queenstown.
