Thanks for the great review of your Mt Cook Day Tour from Christchurch. I'm really pleased that you had such a nice time on your tour. It's all the more better that you enjoyed yourselves so much thanks to your driver/guide, Rodney, who was with you that day. Rodney gets along well with all of his passengers and is more than happy to answer any questions that are given to him. I'm really pleased he made the trip special for you, and I'll certainly pass that on when I next speak to him. Thanks again and I hope you get to visit Mt Cook and Christchurch again soon.
