I enjoyed all three but my favorite experience was Punting on the Avon - we had a lovely person - called Chris I think - he chatted to us all the way there and back about the Avon and telling us details about the ducks and the surroundings that were all around us - excellent ! We went on 14th Aug - 1pm I think I went with my grown-up daughter - in her thirties but this selection is not available in 'Who did you go with..... :( - so I chose 'by myself'
The lake Pukaki is absolutely stunning and the short hike to watch the Glacier is nice. Refreshments are all stuffs I like haha~ Our guide Anujk is patient and friendly, he offered us some good recommendations about our trips in CHC. The car is comfy as well, this is important as it's a long drive from CHC to Mt Cook.
Generally, the tour was good, our local guide is a helpful and enthusiastic guy. We love him. Send him a big appreciation from Thuy and James. There were 2 things that we feel pity abt tour: - Covid stopped our buffet lunch - Duration for hiking was unnecessary long ( should be 45min-1h)
long day on the road but worth the travel with fantastic views and scenery. Really was a great day out. Got really nice snacks from the driver / tour operator so we would not get too hungry. And the short hike after lunch was amazing. A really great family outing.
Janet was an excellent guide. Knowledgeable, voluble, friendly, and experienced. There were only three of us on the tour, too, so it felt very exclusive.
