We did the half day (four hour) walk with a guide.
We were in a party of 14, ages from early twenties to mid 70's, WITH TOURISTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
We were given a good talk on the walk before setting off and all questions were answered.
All equipment required was provided.
The guide was excellent and made this afternoon one of the highlights of our time in NZ.

Booked online for half day walk. Drove to Glacier expecting to find the Guiding Building where you are asked to report. Unfortunately it is not actually at the Glacier but in Fox Glacier Township & no signs inform of you of this. Nowhere on our confirmation invoice does it mention Township so we missed our guided walk.
We did walk up to Glacier & it is spectacular but disappointed that we missed ouropportunity to walk on it because of poor information.

Did the half day. excellent guides. Note that you can't walk on Franz Josef at the moment - you have to go on a helicopter.
