Small group was good. Interesting commentary. Brilliant boat ride, pro driver as well as very personable and helpful.

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

The drive is kind of long. The Jet Boat was very fun. I wish we could have had a bit more time in Christchurch-time to get out and walk around, instead of just driving by everything. I wish the lunch situation had been better-stopping at Subway was not my idea of a good lunch.

The tour itself was alright but getting to Christchurch and the buss/buss ride was not. Lack of time to have lunch and a better, newer buss would have made my experience better.

It was a wicked good time! Really enjoyed the ride and the exhilaration while simultaneously knowing that we were perfectly safe while jet boating.
The tour of Christchurch was good, though a bit rushed--no time built in for eating lunch.
The guides were professional and knowledgeable.

This tour was really a mixed bag. The Jet Boat tour was fantastic, fun, lively and well worth doing. However we were very disapointed with the Christchurch tour. Our primary complaint is that there wasn't enough time to really see Christchurch. We spent the entire tour on the bus and was only allowed off for a 5 minute bathroom break at a museum in downtown Christchurch. No time to explore the local community, no chance to support the local businesses trying to recover from that massive earthquake, no time to enjoy the local scenery or museums still operating. Given that Christchurch is a 90+ minute bus ride from Akaroa, you see that you have very little time to stretch and explore.
I think this would be a MUCH better tour if the operator added an hour or two to allow us time to walk around Christchurch, grab a meal and not just tour the devastation caused by the earthquake.
