Planning a trip to south island...first time...

Fox glacier or franz josef glacier....which one do you all recommend to visit?

I find helihike too ex....are there cheaper alternatives where i can still hike through the glacier?
Both are close to each other so you can visit both. In both cases, you have to do a shortish hike up to the terminal face. I preferred the walk at Fox but the better view of the glacier face was at FJ. Of course the view changes over time so it's hard to say.
Dun think there are alternatives for the glacier hike since you are only there on one day or so. Also consider the skydive at Fox where you see half ocean and half mountains so quite spectacular.
