Christchurch Snow and Kiwi Tour

Christchurch, New Zealand

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Antarctic Centre is alot of fun for kids and has some very interesting information for adults. We enjoyed the penguins, the Ice Storm room and reading about life in the Antarctic. The Haggalund is definitely worth doing. Willowbank was ok but wouldn't rave about it. We did get to see our first KIwi though. We had a bit of spare time before dinner so our driver took us on a little tour of the city and showed us some of the devastation caused by the Earthquake which we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We had dinner at the Casino which was really nice.

Milford Sound Full-Day Tour from Te Anau

Te Anau, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We went to Milford Sound by Coach from Te Anau. The drive to the Sound was actually as spectacular as the Sound itself. It was a rainy day and there was a light dusting of snow on the mountains. Visiting Milford Sound when it is raining does not disappoint as the many waterfalls are spectacular. Make sure you dress very warmly. When we left Te Anau it was sunny and quite mild but it was raining and absolutely freezing at the Sound. The Coach Driver was brilliant. The information he provided was excellent and his sense of humour was great. If I did this tour again (and I would), I wouldnt bother with the lunch on the boat. If you do have the lunch make sure you get yourself a table (so you have a window seat while you eat), and then queue up for your meal. It takes a long time to get through the queue!
Overall a great day with many wonderful photo opportunities.

Queenstown Skyline Gondola and Restaurant

Queenstown, New Zealand

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The Skyline Gondola is worth doing! The views on the way up are amazing. We arrived at the ticket office at 11am and there were no queues so got straight into a Gondola. Once at the top went to the outdoor viewing area and looked through the gift shop. We were booked in for lunch at 12pm. When we got to the Restaurant we waited in the queue to give our tickets and receive a buzzer. We waited for our buzzer to go off (your buzzer goes off in the order you queued up in so get there early cos the window tables fill up first). We luckily had a window table which was really lovely. The selection of food wasnt that great but what was there did taste really nice. You have to try the Hokey Pokey ice cream!!

My Review

AWESOME!!!! This is a must do. The staff were incredible. They treated you with such care and respect. The helicopter ride was amazing. Our guide Richard was extremely knowledgeable and went to great lengths to make sure that we were comfortable and feeling ok throughout the hike. This is the only way to see the Glacier and I would definitely do it again. I would recommend it to anyone. It is worth every cent. Thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Tour guide was great - very informative. Would've liked more time at Imperial Garden. Tokyo Tower, the Japanese tea ceremony and the BBQ lunch were the highlights of the tour for us.
