The Tourism Minister has copped some flak from operators who are frustrated they couldn't meet with him during his trip south.

Stuart Nash has been visiting businesses in Invercargill today before driving to Te Anau to meet with businesses and residents.

It comes as tourist businesses in the region have struggled to survive since the borders closed.

But as Tourism reporter Tess Brunton discovered, most operators desperate to meet him but were out of luck.
