Amazing experience

This tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Athol, was encouraging and knowledgeable about the glacier and the climbing. I was impressed by how well he guided everyone and kept a watchful eye on the people who weren’t as experienced. It was the absolute highlight of my trip. Amazing all around. Highly recommend it.
