Response from NewZealandar, Pilot at Glacier Heli-Hike
Responded 11 Dec. 2019
Hi Noah and Sasha, I am super happy that we got you to Mt Cook and the Tasman Glacier. Thankyou for your review. We will pass on information to the guides about the poles and maybe suggest that they group similar ability groups for the future. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip around NZ. Thanks, Andrew
