What You Can Expect
We had a great day on this tour and would highly recommend it to others. We were with a larger group for the drive of the Banks Peninsula and the Christchurch City Tour. However, we were the only ones to book the Jet Boat on Waimak River, so we were picked up from the bus and transported by car to the jet boat and back to the bus for that portion where we had a private ride. Banks Peninsula is very beautiful and Christchurch had just suffered another earthquake days before our tour so we saw a lot of devastation and rebuilding going on. The Jet Boat ride was the highlight of our day thanks to Greg, who was very knowledgeable and made it a lot of fun. We will always remember the Jet Boat ride as one of the highlights of our days in New Zealand.
Boat driver excellent. We went about 60-65 miles an hr in about 2 inches of water. Great thrill.
Would do it again!!!
By far one of the best tours I've been on. The itinerary was perfect. Christchurch was a highlight but the jet boat ride was awesome and a must do. A very very special mention to Kevin our guide. He definitely made,our day extra special. Thanks.
We were picked up from our cruise ship on time. Tour of Christchurch was just a quick overview only had 40 min stop in gardens for a walk around. Jet boat ride was amazing we all but had the river to ourselves. I would recommend trip to anyone.
The guides were very friendly, pleasant, good-humoured and knowledgeable. We enjoyed all of the tours.
This tour was amazing. The guide,Kevin Edlin, Leisure Tours did an excellent job. He was extremely informed, a great "people person" who was dedicated to making our day memorable. He had a great personality and made sure that everybody was accommodated in a very organized way. I would highly recommend him and if Iam ever in that area again would definitely choose him as a guide.
Small group was good. Interesting commentary. Brilliant boat ride, pro driver as well as very personable and helpful.
This was sensational. Thoroughly enjoyed would go again.
We had a great time on this excursion, we were welcomed with such friendliness and everyone was so helpfull, we travelled on the coach to the Gardens and as we were the only 2 doing the Jet Boat, we was surprised that it was not cancelled, in fact when we got to Christchurch we were privately taken round the sights and taken to the Waimak River where we had a fantastic time, I would recommend this to anyone
