Kia Ora Michael, Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased to hear that you had an awesome time on our Glacier Heli Hike, it sure is a once in a lifetime experience! I will pass on those kind words to Michael. Thank you again! Ngā mihi, Aimee
Kia ora April, Thank you for your review, we appreciate you taking the time to do so. Love the dedication to coming round even when the bridge was closed, as you noticed it is definitely worth! We will make sure to pass on the great comments. Nga mihi, Georgia
Kia ora Kylie, Thank you for your review, we appreciate you sharing your Heli Hike experience. Awesome to hear you had such an epic time. Nga mihi, Georgia
Kia Ora Estelle, Thank your for taking the time to place your review. I'm really pleased you had a good time on the Glacier Heli Hike! We appreciate your feedback about the extra costs. In regards to the lockers we do also have free shelving around the pool area that you can put your belongings in and which you can still see while sitting in the water. With the towels we do recommend everyone to bring their own swimwear and towels but we have to charge for towels as we then have to pay the company that we hire the towels from. Safe Travels. Ngā mihi – Best regards, Aimee
Kia ora Eleanor, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on BookMe, we appreciate your comments. Fantastic to hear about your phenomenal experience on the glacier. It is especially great to hear that Jara took such great care of your group, we will make sure to pass on the positive comments. Safe travels and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time you visit the stunning West Coast. Ngā mihi, Georgia
