the coach ride is spectacular going up and down the mountains between the two points. My time in Christ Church was limited due to the ships departure time, however I am VERY happy that I decided to take the coach tour across the mountains, absolutely spectacular!! Especially when the sun was out.

Christchurch is still rebuilding from the earthquake and must be seen to appreciated. Was recommended by a local and definitely worth the trip. Wish we could have spent more time there but cruise ships have a schedule.

We were not aware that this was just an hour and a half coach trip to Christ Church and pickup and return 3 hours later. Nothing of Akaroa which we wished we had stayed in.

Basic transfer to Christchurch. Perfect for independant travellers.

A shuttle bus to Christchurch for less cost than through the cruise line! No problems encountered.

This was a great way to get to Christchurch! We did not have an excursion planned from our cruise ship but wanted to explore Christchurch on our own, so we just needed a shuttle to get us there and back. This was priced reasonably and the times were good, so we booked it. It far exceeded our expectations of a ride into town and back. Our driver was very informative along the drive and the views were beautiful! On the way back she stopped the bus and let us all get out to take pictures at a one particularity beautiful spot. This was an exceptional ride and we enjoyed every minute of it.

Really enjoyed the Botanical gardens and took a trolley into the container shops left from the massive earth quakes. They have rebuilt most of the city and it is a beautiful place to see.
