Highly highly recommended. It is/was everything and more I expected. Ask for Aaron from the UK to be your tour guide!!!

Despite the unpredictable weather, our tour still went ahead and we had a fabulous time! Our guide Mark from UK was funny and knowledgeable, he was very attentive to everyone and made sure everyone stayed together since we had some mature people on our group. The glacier hike experience was one of the best ones we had and will happily recommend this company to other people.

We were a bit worried when the weather wasn't looking great cold and rainy, but it turns out it had been so warm that our trip was cancelled for safety reasons. They were great about the process, and it turns out they were able to reschedule us on a later tour! The guides were great - funny, knowledgeable, knew where to take us on the glacier for the cool photos! We aren't big hikers and were worried that the 5 hr hike would be too much, but I think it was fine for us. We stopped a decent amount and went pretty slow since almost everyone was new to using crampons on the ice. Such a cool experience and would definitely recommend the trip!
