I don't recommend anyone with kids or elders should join a glacier trip with a company named "GLACIER EXPLORERS" at Mt Cook, Lake Pukaki, New Zealand. (you can find this company from FB)
I joined the glacier trip with my kid on 8 Jan 2017. There was a rude bus driver named "Rochelle". This rude driver also work as a guide asked my kid to walk close to group. Rochelle even said if my kid cannot walk as fast as the group, I have to carry him on this rocky road which is very easy to trip over, she completely ignore client safety. Also, she said I only have 2 choices, 1) carry him; 2) go back to the bus and cannot join the tour. She only wanted the tour finish asap and she can finish off her duty.
I can't believe that the staff is that unprofessional and rude to client.
I definitely not recommend this trip and this company with such kind of staff with this attitude......

I was blown away by the icebergs, we got to touch one and saw three carvings on the iceberg which was epic!

Nice experience. Guides told a lot of good information, impressive to see the glacier-ice so close (ice-bergs in the lake) and we were lucky to see a part dropping into the lake.

Really impressive ! What a ride ! A unique experience in NZ ! Seeing those giants icebergs floating on the lake around you is unique and the colors are beautiful ! The staff is really knowledgeable about the glacier itself, lake and the icebergs !

Would highly recommend it !

Well organised, efficient, good guiding. Nice boat ride on the lake getting close to the icebergs. Unfortunately due to safety precautions, we had to stay a long way from the terminal face.
