Well organised

A very convenient way to travel to Akaroa from Chch. James the driver was friendly and gave a good commentary along the way. Son and I spent a pleasant few hours in Akaroa. The Approx 4 hours in Akaroa was long enough for a leisurely lunch, a visit to the museum and time enough also for a number of short but lovely leafy walks. Recommend.

Very easy to find the meetup point by the museum. The driver was friendly and helpful, made some nice scenic stops for photo opportunities along the way, and gave us great directions for how to find the shuttle again for pickup at the end of the day. Easy end of day pickup. Overall smooth ride. Bus was comfortable and seats were pretty spacious and clean. Great value for money, made Akaroa an easy experience from Christchurch, so highly recommend.

Great day out. The ride from Christchurch to Akaroa is a bit steep, but totally worth the day out. We got into Akaroa at about 10:30am having left Christchurch at about 8:30, and spent about 5 hours out there before the shuttle came to take us back at about 3:30.
