Very good guide.
Excellent tour. Really enjoyed the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve and admittance to reserve was hassle free.
Very good tour and excellent driver who went out of his way to please us.
Our driver made the day with his enthusiasm and personal knowledge of the area. Enjoyed seeing Christ Church with him. His explanations and tour areas were very good. The guide in the Reserve was also very good. You could tell he loved his work and loved showing the animals in the Reserve. He even called them by name!
Christchurch was some what disappointing because on the ongoing earthquake repairs. Willow bank was informative and fun. Actually saw a Kiwi bird eating in the dark.
We enjoyed our trek to Christchurch, it was a bit of a drive but our driver kept talking about the area and entertaining us the whole way. Willow bank would have been interesting but our tour guide there did our hour long tour in about 20 minutes....The countryside was beautiful, and it was interesting to see how Christchurch has recouperated after the earthquake, it seems to be a vibrant city....would have liked a little more time there. Akaroa was stunning in the sunshine.
willowbank wildlife reserve amazing..you get to see the kiwi in a nocturnal setting. first hand look at the rebuilding process in Christchurch atfer the earthquake
Definitely saw some beautiful country from Akaroa to Christchurch. Very rushed day but got to see a taste. Very dissappointed in not really seeing a Kiwi in the wildlife reserve as they do hide but we were guaranteed to see one but only saw a fury ball way up in the corner. Did enjoy the personal tour around the wildlife reserve.
LOVED The wildlife preserve! VERY interesting.Would highly recommend it!
Not much to see in Christchurch except empty lots were buildings had been razed as a result of the earthquake 5 yrs ago. One stop, however, was a church that had severe damage as a result of the quake and left for viewing by the tourists. We did have a brief stop at the Maori museum in Christchurch were able to take a rushed tour there. wished we could have spent more time there.
While the scenery on the way there was fantastic new Zealand is a gorgeous country!, the area around Christchurch was flat and rather monotonous. Our driver did a good job of pointing out various things along the way, IE kiwi fruit growing, vineyards, sheep and cattle grazing and other facts about New Zealand.
This was a very informative and interesting tour. There was a bit of confusion as to which bus was going where at Akaroa but all sorted out at The Museum first stop. The tour around Christchurch was very informative. The Willowbank Wildlife Reserve was well worth a visit and as our group of 5 was the only group going here we had a guide from The Reserve just for us. Our guide was excellent. Our return trip to Akaroa was eventful when we had a double tyre blowout. We were about 20 minutes from Akaroa at this time so our driver phoned another driver in Akaroa and arranged for him to come and pick us up in his bus. We arrived in Akaroa later than expected but still ahead of the last cruise organised bus. Although not required it was reassuring to know if we were not back in time we would be taken to next port.
