Great option for those looking to get a brief taste of the NZ wilds without straying too far from Christchurch. Day was pretty much what it says on the box. Pickup from hotel in a custom-built 4WD, off-road adventure right up into the foothills overlooking Christchurch, jetboating through the Waimakariri River gorge followed by delicious lunch, then drive up to Arthur's Pass and return by scenic TranzAlpine train. Driver/guide was very friendly and involved. Run by Hassle Free Tours and that's what it was.

Brilliant day out.
We were picked up from our hotel for our adventure.
our driver was very good and gave us details about the areas we travelled through.
The 4WD experience was good and we were taken high enough to get some stunning views of the Canterbury plains.
We were then taken to the alpine Jet for a thrilling ride on the Waimakariri river. This included a number of 360 degree turns. Lunch was fresh and plentiful. A nice drive to Arthurs pass befor boarding the Tranzalpine train back to Christchurch. The train has two viewing coaches from which you can take photos of the stunning scenery before being collected by our driver and taken back to our hotels.
Would thoroughly recommend this tour
