We signed up for the Tour with Beginners Skiing lessons. Considering it's our first skiing experience, we actually had loads of fun. Our teacher, Hans was very good. Within 2 hours, we were able to ski down a gentle slope!
The Bus stopped at Mansfield for us to hire all the ski stuff before proceeding up Mt Buller. Even though it was cheaper to hire at Mansfield, I felt it was not worth the time and effort lugging around all the heavy stuff. Perhaps the Tour operator could have informed us of the option. One can also hire them at the Ski school on Mt. Buller itself. Moreover, this delayed the schedule and we missed the 11am class. We had to take the next class from 1.30pm-3.30pm. After class, we had to rush to back to the Bus who was departing at 4.30pm.
Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend taking the ski lessons if you don't already know how to ski.
A value-for-money enjoyable 4-day round Island tour. Good Hotels and Good Food (Breakfast and Lunch provided). Half the journey was via Shinkansen and train rides. This made the journey very pleasant and less tiring. However, may not be suitable for older folks especially to manage daily luggage and getting and out of train platforms. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this tour. Thanks Viator! =D
