    Fantastic! I was pleased with the accommodations, especially at Mt Cook. I love that I was in the motel where I could walk in and out from my room sit and see the snow top Mtns while I soaked up the warm sun (22 C).

    I couldnt fault this trip if I tried. There was moments when we had no connection and were concerned and the team helped us straight away to get in contact with various tours etc. I would highly recommend!
