Very helpful staff, opened for us even though they had just closed. Good local knowledge and good information on Glaciers.

No professional behaviour, felt like I interrupted them. I have been there twice and it was the same. Understand they are busy, but it is no reason to be awkward.

I was expecting something more from an information centre in a busy area like this, it was really big but nearly empty inside, but the staff were lovely as usual in this place.

It seemed that many of the 'attractions' were not well thought through. It was tricky to use the mountain spotting activity and the kids corner just had cushions in it. As a result all the kids grabbed some books to look at (the ones for sale) only to be told off by the staff. I believe there is a Kiwi ranger program in this area. The cushions could be used for kids to look at the Kiwi ranger leaflets.

Franz is the snow-town in NZ.. and people go here to get their dose of snow adventures, heli-rides, etc..

Our first move was to visit the i-Site and get all the details of things to do.. More than the required information, we were amazed by the i-Site too..

They had a 4-D model of the mountains and glaciers in the region, with button-pressed lights which tell u exactly which one is Mt. Tasman or Franz glacier or 10 other mountains and glaciers in the region..

Doing the adventures was one thing, and knowing where you're doing it and what you're passing by was an experience not to be missed!!

Good job Franz Josef i-Site.. You've made it extremely nice and informative!!
