The tour was excellent nice drive out to Akora and our driver gave good commentary stopped at little river for a look around and a coffee, only disappointment was the harbour cruise was cancelled due to weather conditions so cannot blame tour company for that, instead he took us to the Giants house and a drive off the beaten track to view the fantastic harbour from high ground.
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)
I would go after lunch we saw the most action (unless you an early morning riser) the lions had just been fed and caused a cool stir with there roaring, most animals were out and about. Some weren't on display at start which was disheartening but we were advised some weren't well
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.
