The tour was good and it was nice to have the guides to point things out however I feel for $59 you would be better doing the walk yourself as you get pretty much the same view.

Everything was ok.

Good day, but the tour got delayed since many people didn´t show up the time we were supposed to during the day. Many people aren´t that good in english, so maybe the driver could bring a clock-prototype where it is shown when to be back at the bus at every stop. And the driver can also say the time many times before we leave the bus. The driver was very informant and good otherwise.

my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our Great Ocean Bus trip. The bus was very roomy and comfortable and our coach driver "Don" was fantastic, we had a great day.
We did however experience a hiccup with lunch which according to my online booking included a "delicious restaurant lunch". Don informed us we were not included on lunch list and that we would need to pay for lunch ourselves and contact you in regard to same. We purchased lunch at our own cost amounting to $38.00 (receipt retained). Can you please look into this and get back to me by either email: *PERSONAL DATA REMOVED BY FEEFO* thank you

Latest Questions about Glacier Walks - Glacier Guides (Franz Josef)

How long is the helicopter ride?

Comments

Hi Shauna. The helicopter flight as part of the Ice Explorer hike at Franz Josef Glacier is just a short heli hop of 5 minutes or so. The helicopter flight on the Heli Hike tour is about twice as long and takes you to the most spectacular ice formations where you can see blue ice.

my husband and I are 50 and would love to do the explorer later this month but not sure what moderate fitness means to u guys- we are quite active but not what u would call fit

Comments

Hi Judith, moderate fitness requires you to be able to walk comfortably for 3 hours. The walking is not non stop, there are plenty of photo stops. The terrain is undulating and you would have crampons on which will be a little heavier than your normal shoes. There are also numerous sets of stairs to climb as well. So, if you feel comfortable that you could walk for 3 hours and also walk easily up and down the stairs then you will be fine with the Ice Explorer.

What time do the walks commence and approximately how long is the "round-trip"? Are there morning and/or afternoon guided walks? I am visiting in mid-March.

Comments

Hi Colin. There are several different hikes available on Franz Josef Glacier starting with the Glacier Valley walk which doesn't spend any time actually on the glacier, to the Ice Explorer which includes a short heli flight to the start of the glacier and 3 hours walking on the actual glacier, and the Heli Hike which takes you to the best & most pristine glacier scenery available and involves 2 hours hiking. There are several departures daily however I recommend booking the morning departure as this is often when there is the best weather. There is some more detailed information in the listing on our website.
