What a way to finish a amazing trip! Just when we thought we had seen the best Otago/fiordland had to offer, we arrived at true south office and booked in, the staff were amazing, we met James our pilot and he told us what was happening. The flight was just amazing, James was outstanding, not just as a pilot, but his knowledge and friendliness was a credit. The staff at Mt Cook, our guide Scott and the whole glacier experience will stay with us always. Mike the chopper pilot was outstanding. All we can say is .... WOW

The flight to Franz Joseph was the most beautiful flight I have ever taken, and I have flown a lot. We had exceptionally clear weather. The hike was challenging for someone my age, but I am so proud I did it. It was amazing! Our guide was friendly and extremely safety conscious. However, on more than one occasion I felt rushed. This was a bucket list experience for me, and that definitely detracted from the experience.

The flights (both single engine plane to Mt Cook and then help to glacier) were as much fun as the hike itself. Great pilots (Laura and Nigel respectively) gave a wonderful overview of all we were flying over as well as some of the history and geography, etc Hike was such a unique experience and the blue glaciers were stunning. Too bad that recent rains had reduced caves, nets

It was a day trip from Greymouth to Franz Josef. You may choose to skip some of the itinerary to join the 30mins flight at your own cost. It is good for those travelers who have limited times but want to cover all best scenaries. Not really need to stay overnight at Franz Josef.

In linea con le aspettative

True South flights and the pilot Peter was excellent. Informative on the flight to and from Franz Josef. Walking in the glacier was a once in a lifetime experience and amazing
