Our day trip to Mount Cook was filled with informative commentary from Rodney. He not only explained the sights quite well, he also kindly answered questions we had about life in New Zealand. While the top of Mt. Cook was covered in clouds, we still felt the trip was well worth our time because the surrounding area was beautiful and Rodney made the trip special.

Thanks for the great review of your Mt Cook Day Tour from Christchurch. I'm really pleased that you had such a nice time on your tour. It's all the more better that you enjoyed yourselves so much thanks to your driver/guide, Rodney, who was with you that day. Rodney gets along well with all of his passengers and is more than happy to answer any questions that are given to him. I'm really pleased he made the trip special for you, and I'll certainly pass that on when I next speak to him. Thanks again and I hope you get to visit Mt Cook and Christchurch again soon.

Along with many others at various vantage spots our sights of Mt Cook could be no better, we felt blessed as we previously tried to see the range coming from Haast to Queenstown and it was too cloudy
