all we got to see up close was a piece of ice berg and to be clear a very small piece!!! but the actual glacier though, we had to keep a distance of about a km perhaps more for whatever reason!!! So now you be the judge! shouldn't it be called just a lake cruise?? why the fancy name??? unbelievably expensive and all you get is an hour cruise on the tasman lake with some mediocre commentary!! basically they just read out what is already in the brochure! We did the tour because we were misled by the photos on the brochure! you wont see any of that!!!! our guide was a lady she looked so nervous while driving the boat. It felt like she didnt know what she was doing! do not waste your hard earned money even if you have a lot to waste i'd rather donate it!! we only had 6 days in the middle earth and there were so many other things that I'd rather do only if i knew what a ripoff this tour was!! If your doing the free hooker valley walk to the end I assure you that you'll get a much better view of the glacier than this tour!! Or just do the tasman glacier walk!! you wouldn't see anything more if you did this tour!!!!!
