    Excellent tour to see the highlights of the Mt Cook region. Highly recommended!
    An excellent and well-organised day tour to see the many highlights in the Mt Cook region. A good amount of time at each stop allowing you to visit the sites and take photos. Stunning views of Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki, Hooker Valley and Tasman Glacier against the winter backdrop. A long day trip but didn’t feel long as the scenery is so beautiful and engaging. A really lovely tour guide who is very attentive to travellers’ needs. Overall highly recommended. Thank you very much!

    Great views, nice guide. Covering all the main attractions in Aoraki mountain. Has a mini-van carried all the way. Bottled water on the van. Nice stop for restrooms and meals. Ready for next time visit to the wonders.

    Great Day Tour!
    Great day tour from Christchurch. The scenery was lovely (we were very fortunate that we had great weather on the day too). Our driver/tour guide was punctual, nice, and very informative. It is a long day though but there were plenty of snacks on the journey and sufficient restroom stops on the way. I'd definitely recommend this tour for people who aren't familiar with the area and not wanting to drive (there is no cell service at the Tasman Glacier area).

    Misty Day Did Not Dampen Our Delight
    This was the only day of our three-week trip that had a slight rain. However, the views from the train were still gorgeous and our guide provided us with an abundance of options to enjoy the area. This is the location for much of the Lord of the Rings filming. That alone should be an incentive for many. We loved the abundance of waterfalls, lakes and streams. The alpine rain forest was beautiful.

    Head to Mount Cook and be thrilled
    Was a great day out with NZIS tours to the wonderful Mt Cook and lake Tekapo, and Tasman glacier tour. Pick up was on time and the day was great. I picked this tour as I did not want to to drive this long and not knowing the stops. We had plenty of organised stops for toilets and food/drink along the way as well as the supplied water and snacks. Recommend this trip to anyone in Christchurch looking for a great excursion.

    #1 tour guide ever! Train views are okay, not amazing, but hikes are adventurous
    Our guide stood in pelting rain handing us umbrellas, pulling ponchos over us in wind and searched for late returning walkers on trails with great care and disregard for his own comfort. He was very kind and patient. I would recommend this company for tours but the actual Southern Alps are overstated. Weather obscured view from the train and open car ridiculously packed. Lunch was a free for all at the two restaurants that are open but that's not why we were on this trip. Very good hikes!

    Mount Cook full day tour with Kevin as our guide from Queenstown.
    I had a wonderful experience in a comfortable van with Kevin as our guide. We passed through the picturesque Cromwell, valleys, vineyards, sheep farms. We stopped at the Wrinkly Rams restaurant for a light meal. I enjoyed the peace and wooden architecture of the site. As we approached The Aoraki Mountain Cook National Park, I also witnessed the beautiful brown mountains Lindis Mountains, Central Otago, Omarama along with the turquoise waters of Lakes Matheson, Tekapo. The Highway 80 was an easy road to drive pretty flat. I did the Hooker Valley Track, enjoyed a drink at the Hermitage Hotel, visited the Sir Edmund Hillary museum and also enjoyed the learning experience in the modern Visitors Centre. Kevin shared his history and geography knowledge which made the trip even more enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour.

    Great experience in any weather.
    Even with bad weather on the horizon, we had a very pleasant and beautiful ride from Christchurch to Greymouth and back in one day. TranzAlpine had communicated with us the day before that there was a change the train would not be able to make the trip due to pending weather. I appreciated knowing in advance. I think I would have been much more stressed if I would have been told the morning of the trip. They didn't even know for sure until the train showed up. Thankfully we had a great ride with some rain but many spectacular views along the way. Seats were comfortable, audio commentary was educational but had a few inaudible spots that kept you in a questionable state. That was not enough to bring down this scenic trip.

    The day was one of the best we have ever experienced
    We enjoyed our TranzAlpine train to Arthurs Pass and return by minivan. The guide did an exceptionally good job looking after us, and he was so well prepared, with umbrellas, ponchos(which were needed in Arthurs Pass and for the Devils Punchbowl walk) and chocolates/ chips and other treats. The TranzAlpine train seats were in the best location to see the magnificent views , front carriage, forward facing on the right hand side. (albeit the open air carriage got very full with photographers from throughout the train, NZSI could not help that). Arthurs Pass cafes lunch options were a bit limlted, but ok. The weather was dry after Arthurs Pass and the guide made several stops at scenic and interesting locations, which he was informative about. The day was one of the best we have ever experienced. Well done NZSI.

    Good option for family travel
    If you are traveling oversea and not comfortable with driving in New Zealand like us, I think the tour is a good option. They have multiple pick up locations including our hotel. The driver was very knowledgeable and nice, and kept the trip on schedule. The tour was long, 13 hours at least, had to spend long time sitting in the bus each way. The view of Mount Cook and Lake Tekapo really depends on weather during the day. It was very cloudy when we got to the lake, the view was not great as pictures. And we were lucky to see the beautiful view at Mount Cook with sun came out.

    Beautiful views, fun train ride, cramped bus.
    Very comfortable train ride. Excellent tour guide provided interesting commentary, plus bottled water and snacks. Beautiful views and unguided walks. Only complaint was that the tour bus seats were way too cramped. Need a bigger bus for all the time you spend in it.

    Beautiful views, too small bus
    First of all, the tour guide was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable, explained things well, and kept us well informed on timing. The spots we visited were beautiful, especially the many views of Aoraki. However, the tour description never said anything about being gone over 13 hours and likely to miss dinner. And the seats in the bus were way too small, both width and length. I am not long legged and still kept smashing my knees the whole day.

    A Compact, but Thorough, South Island Experience
    Beautiful train ride that thoroughly showcased the beauty of the South Island. The tour took us to a multitude of stops, and provided a fun day of scenic look outs and small hikes. The tour guide was very thorough, and shared his knowledge of the flora and fauna of Arthur’s pass.
