Yarra Valley Wineries and Puffing Billy Steam Train Day Tour from Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
What a great day to see Melbourne countryside. The Puffing Billy ride was enjoyable and fun. The drive through the Dandenongs was just beautiful. Our coach driver was courteous and very informative about the sights we were seeing, and he joked with us along the way. The Yarra Valley was great to see and the highlight was Chandon Winery - what a beautiful spot. And the tour at Chandon was so interesting. The only disappointment was lunch at Ferguson Valley winery - plain roast beef with boiled carrots and lettuce leaves - so unappetizing. Since when do wineries serve this sort of a meal!! If I had of known, I would have brought along my own lunch.

What an amazing experience! Walking through the Glacier is spectacular. I would have liked the Guide to have provided some history on the Glacier but he did not talk much.

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
It was very interesting to see the Glo Worms. I was a bit disappointed that when we were walking out to the boat and while on the boat, the Guide did not provide any information. He was difficult to understand, he had a very heavy Japanese accent.

Discover Christchurch Sightseeing Tour with optional International Antarctic Center Admission

Christchurch, New Zealand

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

My Review
The guide was difficult to understand - he had a heavy English accent. His knowledge of Christchurch was very good, if you could understand him. He was polite but did not have any enthusiasm for his job. It is just a job for him. He said that his job is truck driving. Unfortunately, I was not very happy with the tour operator. As we were the only couple to take the optional International Antarctic Center admission, the guide wanted us to make our own way back to our accommodation. We were not happy about this. We were picked up from our accommodation in the first place! When I asked what public transport would take us back to our accommodation, the guide did not know - he just expected to leave us at the Antarctic Centre to make our own way back to our lodgings in a strange country! The guide then contacted who I presumed to be his boss and said he would pick us up in 2 hours and take us back to our accommodation. He did do this. This tour left a sour taste with us.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The guide from Wellington Rover Tours was excellent! She was enthusiastic, engaging and very informative. Her knowledge of the subject was amazing! Wellington Rover Tours were also very helpful as we were waiting to be picked up for the tour at the wrong location. After contacting WRT to say that we were waiting for them, they immediately made arrangements to pick us up from this location. We were very impressed with their service.
