A long ride but well worth it.
Enjoyed this tour very much. The sheep farm was interesting and like the three legged border collie that could still run and herd the sheep extremely well. It was sad to see the parts of Christchurch that are still in bad shape 5 years after the earthquake.
Pleasant surprise, very interesting learning about the different kinds of sheep and all the
work that goes into processing wool.
This tour was amazing! We enjoyed the tour very much, however, it would be even more perfect if there were more sheep in the demonstration!
Unique and unusual tour. Gave a good insight into local life of a sheep farmer.
great tour guide, need to start earlier and have a stop for lunch
Christchurch was a bit boring, lots of 'there use to be ........' about what had been in a spot befor the earthquakes. Terrible devistation. The sheep farm was fun, we got to try our hand at shearing a sheep!!!!
We loved the sheep farm tour. The owner was very informative and interesting to watch the dog work the sheep heard. Lunch was provided at the farm and great conversation with the owner. Not enough time at Christchurch since we had to leave the group to go to the farm. Would have liked more time there.
We stopped in Akaroa for one day while cruising New Zealand. The tour took us from Akaroa to Christchurch. The guide wasn't too knowledgable and seemed a bit disorganized. We stopped at the Botanical Gardens, but we were only given about 15 minutes to see it. A second tour guide met a small group of us in Christchurch. She was much better than the first guide. She drove us through Christchurch and showed us the destruction associated with the earthquake a few years ago. It was very interesting. The highlight of the tour was the farm tour. It was a very small operation, but the farmer couldn
We had a bit of a 'glitch' with overbooking at the beginning of the tour in Akaroa but Brian straightened it out and all was great. We particularly liked meeting Ivor at the sheep farm. He was great and the simple lunch was an unexpected 'treat'.
