Many thanks to Mason, who took the time to explain each one of the different tours and made me understand what would suit me best.
The bad news is that 65% of the glacier tours are cancelled due to weather.

We went off the beaten tourist track too and had a superb time (and hot choc at the glacier look out point!).A really excellent tour that also included a dip in the hot tubs back at the tour base.
Also, the Glacial Hot Pools are included with your tour - beautiful, and most relaxing!

What an amazing tour with very knowledgeable guides, we’d thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Glacier country - to top the day we also saw the rare & beautiful White Heron - Kotuku, simply awesome
During our subsequent couple of weeks in NZ we went on to kayak on the lake at Lake Wanaka and on Milford Sound (both amazing experiences)and our experience on this tour gave us the confidence to do this.So a big...

You can easily do the basic walk yourself, but we really enjoyed our guided tour - we felt it was worth it for the additional information.
We loved our walking tour with Rose!

And we got great food, a good guided tour and a tour around the lake as a bonus!
I definitely recommend taking the tour... Or even better charter for a spot of fishing!

#1 of 11 Tours in Franz Josef
Very different kayak experience as we kayaked through untouched wilderness Most of the tours charge for pictures.
What I really liked about the tour are: Easy paddling, good equipment that prevents you from getting wet or cold, patient guide with fantastic knowledge on wildlife & environment, lots of well taken free photos!

Our guide Andy made both tours really enjoyable with his knowledge, history and explanation of the plant life etc.
After briefly introducing the small group to each other (we formed a party of 7 plus Laura) we set off at an easy pace, and soon left the "public" route to walk though an area restricted to guided tours, to see ar...

From what I've heard, the skydive company in Queenstown is chaotic and has so many people on a tour.
I couldn't get a shuttle bus to meet the tour bus I was on so the lady at reception took me into Fox personally which was above and beyond what I'd expect from any company as it wasn't their problem to make sure I...

Great company to fly with and when back here I will definitely do one of the other tours they offer.
Went on a heli tour to Fox Glacier then onto Fran Josef Glacier landing and walking on top in the snow Pilot was excellent with his commentary and skills Well worth the cost for a once in a lifetime experience

... cascade of ice otherwise, like rain only colder ) The guides are great for asking tons of questions to throughout the trip and answered any questions we had on the glacier and the are or the tours themselves.
Just a short walk from numerous dinning options, walking tracks and guided glacier tours.

This company has been offering heli tours of the Franz Joseph Glacier on the West Coast of the South Island for many years, but recently has been taking people from the Mt.
He literally spends his entire day on top giving tours, as well as several other guides.
