This tour was great. Picked up on time from Akaroa wharf. Small group from cruise ship. Comfortable coach. Commentary all the way. Toured around Christchurch and the rebuilding. Sad to see that so many of the buildings had been damaged. Lovely parks and gardens. Afterwards we went on a Jet Boat on the Waimak River. Fantastic fun. Highly recommended. We were back in Akaroa in plenty of time to rejoin our ship after a very enjoyable day. Great excursion and well organized.
Enjoyed this thoroughly. The jet boat experience was very enjoyable and we were the only boat on the river. The Banks Peninsula and Christchurch city tour were very informative and interesting. Woudl recommend this tour.
The drive to Christchurch was very scenic and beautiful. The highlight was really the jet boating. Luv this tour!
Tour was amazing!!!
Was a great experience. Loved Akaroa such a pretty village. Christchurch is about 80km from Akaroa. There were six of us in the mini bus which was fabulous as it was nice and roomy and easy to chat to each other and the driver/guide John was easy going and very informative. Unfortunately it was rainy off and on so we didn't get off the bus in Christchurch but we saw pretty much all of the CBD area. We were then taken out to the Waimak river and went on the most amazing jet boat ride! One of the best experiences in NZ!
We then got back to the ship in plenty of time.
While it was a little chaotic at the start, but no fault of the tour company, the cruise line was the problem. Very informative and accommodating. The jet boat was a the highlight....fun fun fun.
Thr tour was informative. The driver was knowledgable. Only problem was the weather. Due to the level of the river we had to change our day. There was a cold spell so summer in New Zealand was cold and raining. Had to change the Jet Boat trip to a trip to the Antarctic Center which was great. We got a back door tour of the center from a very helpful quide. The day was a little rushed due to changes in our cruise ship times and seemed a little chaotic initially when we got to the meeting spot. We got the change in cost back during the day as the Antarctic center was less expensive. Sorry the weather and the river were not cooperative. Would recommend the Antarctic Center. Know nothing about it until be got there. Did not even think about being close to the Antarctic in New Zealand.
This tour was amazing. Easily connected after walking off our cruise ship.
Interesting tour thru Christchurch and fun jet boat ride. Highly recommended
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!!!
