Christchurch, New Zealand
The ride along the Banks Peninsula was okay but the Christchurch City sight/drive was not something I expected at all. Nothing special. The city is waiting for a reconstruction. It would be better if the tour companly had pictures of the city before the quake to share so people can have a better appreciation of the city.
A few times our guide did not wait for his group to come together before he started to share his knowledge of the history or related stories. Comparing to guides from other tour groups, our guide showed (by walking along with us) fewer places to us. Lack of clear directions to points of interest during our free time period which resulted in loss of time and not being able to see places we wanted to visit. The tour company combined English and Spanish speaking groups together and caused the guide to spend less than half of his time in his guide in English. This is because he used more words in Spanish than in English to explain the same thing.
