A full on day of travel with a very informative host/driver and his multilingual companion. Mount Cook was snow covered and magnificent viewed from the lodge where we had a splendid well set out buffet meal. As a tired couple we were dropped off at our hotel door and grateful for a safe, very informative and long journey.
