Boat could not get straight into harbour so had to get a tender from boat to shore, that was something different but no problems at all. Akaroa is a stunning little fishing village, best fish and chips there. You have to try the Blue Cod which you can only get in the south island. YUM. So many shops to wander in and out of, markets. The bus driver was waiting for us when we got there, he was very knowledgeable, very friendly and very funny. Plenty of time to wander around and have a feed and a drink. Excellent.
The young lady certainly knew all about Akaroa and the trip was excellent, could not wish for better.
Very informative and enjoyable . The stops we made were just right. Recommend tour .
This tour started with a little hiccup as were originally early for our tour we were advised to take a look at the shops and to not hurry back to our tour starting time of 11.30am as the tour was waiting on a number of people to still arrive from the tenders from our cruise. So on the advise of the tour operator we arrived at 11.31 and found our bus leaving without us. We then had to wait for another 45 minutes for the tour to begin. The bus driver we did have was very knowledgeable and a safe especially on the hilly windy roads. The Hilltop Tavern whilst very picturesque was in state of transition and a state of disrepair. Not to cleanest of cafes with only 1 toilet for another of busloads to use at the sametime. Otherwise an enjoyable tour.
The tour was good, the scenery beautiful but the lunch break was to short and no time to order food.

Easy pick up at end of wharf. The day was overcast and drizzly but gnat didn't stop us going off to the tours of cheese factory and local pub. On return we had options of where to leave the tour. All local information was interesting and well presented. Easy villages to walk around.
Loved the bus tour hour and half of beautiful countryside. Needed more time to explore afterwards though, next time.
An interesting tour that is an alternative to those offered by the cruise lines.
Bad day, all we saw was the inside of a cloud. But hey this sometimes happens, would do it again only on a fine day.

A bit boring. Just really a drive into the nearby hills for good views of the area.
