    It was fantastic, went on time and we were lucky to be the only ones booked in at that time so we had a private tour. Guide nickoli I think was excellent. So kind to my 2 girls and stopped a few times to make sure the girls got to play in the snow. He was very interactive with the kids and made sure to explain different facts about the snow and surroundings. Only negative was the early start and the transfer included other people who were not booked in for this event. We were collected 1hr before the tour when it was only a 10min drive away but because it was a normal shuttle it had lots of stops. Should have been private transfer and dud not include transfer back I'd highly recommend tour though
