Fantastic tour - driver gave lots of info all the way, stunning scenery - absolutely worth doing this instead of the bus straight there!!!

For a bus tour, this is the most convenient way to visit Queenstown via Mount Cook. The bus stopped at a few nice spots for us to take photos on the way to Mount Cook and Queenstown. The best part of the tour was definitely the helicopter flight at Mount Cook. The flight is fairly expensive but it is definitely worth the money. We got the chance to get off the flight and play at the top of the snow mountain. If you want to save money, it is better to get the discount voucher at the airport.

It was a great way to get to Queenstown from Christchurch. The highlight was definitely the helicopter ride. It may cost a lot, but it is definitely worth it! To make it cheaper, try to make use of the free discount coupons inserted in the free travel guides at Christchurch Airport. If you're taking the helicopter ride, eat lunch quickly, because we had had the helicopter ride, we only had a few minutes to finish our lunch. In fact, we had our lunch packed in order to rejoin the group in time!

Our tour bus was initially a little late departing, so our time at Mount Cook was limited, but the meal was rushed but good. Overall, this was a good way to travel from Christchurch to Queenstown and see some great scenery along the way!

The sights were great but the driver was surely. In fact even tough he was suppose to take me to my hotel he dropped me several blocks away with no explanation on how to get there. Thanks to some other tourists I managed to find the place.,,no thanks to the driver.

A wonderful way to travel between towns. The stops at the lakes was the highlight for me. I wish we had more time there.

All the same like in my two other tours provided by Viator (Milford Sound Overnight Cruise and Gondola Skyline Restaurant in Queenstown) - everything was very good and value for money, but weather destroys some expected high points. For example we had no seen Mount Cook due to rain and fog...

This is a great way to travel form Christchurch to your next destination, Queenstown. The scenery en route is fantastic with stops at Mt. Cook and Lake Tekapo. Special thanks to our guide/driver for the great commentary and excellent driving, I never felt road sick despite windy roads. Comfortable coach and well timed stops. A bit long journey that can be cut short by rental car but one would miss the interesting facts commentary en route from the guide.

Perfect guide-driver, lovely scenery. The trip gave a good overview of this part of the beautiful country. The only pity was the fog and rain at Mount Cook - the mountain could not be seen.

Too many commercial stops, it was more a means of transport than a tour.
