1. From Queenstown: Mount Cook and Hooker Valley Day Trip

Visit breathtaking locations in Queenstown as you make your way to Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. Travel with a reliable tour guide who will share stories and rich background knowledge on Queenstown and the Mount Cook area. Start your tour in the stunning city of Queenstown. Drive through the Kawarau Suspension Bridge and marvel at the scenery the Kawarau Gorge has to offer. Stop at the Roaring Meg Lookout to take photos of your stunning view. Then, enter the region of Cromwell, famous for fruits and wine and where you can see huge fields of vines. Next, traverse the majestic Lindis Pass which lies between two valleys against a backdrop of a bright blue sky.

An excellent tour from Queenstown to Aoraki/Mt. Cook. The scenery along the way is spectacular. We had several photo stops at particularly beautiful spots. Aoraki/Mt. Cook National Park village had several activities- hiking, helicopter rides, a museum dedicated to Sir Edmund Hillary. It also had a cafeteria with a variety of hot and cold food and beverages. Our driver/guide, Shane, was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. He kept the tour interesting and fun. We traveled in a comfortable, 15 passenger van/mini-bus. It had large windows for great views of the passing countryside. Very much recommend this tour.

Crystal was an amazing guiee, she made everyone feel comfortable and welcome. she made every effort to made stops for photos. It was a shame the weather wasn't on our side (which seems to be the norm) and we didn't get a chance to see Mount Cook in its full glory. However, I did choose to do the 3 hour hike to the Hooker Valley, the view was spectacular despite the rain.

This is a really good tour. I did not have much time in the area but this 12 hour tour was fabulous. Our guide was really lovely and very knowledgable. Hooker Valley was beautiful. We had lots of little breaks which was nice. Bus/Van was very clean and comfortable.

This is very good trip. A must to go in your tavel bucket list to new zealand. Remember to bring cap and suncream as there is no shelter along th paths. It is really hot during summer.

Nice weather, informative guide with extensive knowledge on the geographical region of Mt Cook, interesting stories as well! Very engaging and lucky to have Shane as the guide!
