Christchurch, New Zealand
The whale watching was phenominal, Saw at least 6 whales with little time trying to find them. The whale watch team are very professional and highly organised. The bus trip there is quite good and senic. We unfortunately had a mecahnical problem which took a little while to resolve but we had the added attraction of being driven into town by a friendly New Zealand highway patrol officer in his police car.
Brisbane or Gold Coast, Australia
Absolutely stunning scenery. Steve the guide was informative but also unstructured which made it an experience we all contributed to. Drive is a bit long but once you get there it is worth it
