I had my trip easily organised by a lady named tressa in the booking office. She helped me book easily and confirmed my itinerary when I got a bit muddled. The bus driver was a fill in kiwi man friendly adventurous an lots of knowledge. I can't remember his name but he drove last Thursday

We went on a tour in winter so probably not the best time to go on this tour. That being said we had a great time. I would recommend jumping off half way and walking back or jumping off for an hour of swimming and relaxation on the beach. New Zealand site seeing at its best.

I got picked up and dropped off at the depot as they didn't service my hotel. This was fine as it was only a 1km walk up the... More

We hired AT Coachlines for transport from Nelson to Marahau for an Abel Tasman hike. The driver was a few minutes late picking us up, but it was not a problem, and he was relatively friendly in giving us advice about where to start the hike, etc. While waiting to depart Nelson, we bought a return ticket and voiced our...

Enjoyable ride as the two drivers we had both kept up a commentary for the tourists which was most informative. Probably rather boring for the locals though! Coaches were comfortable clean and on time and they wait for the ferry to come from Wellington even if it is over an hour late.

Before walking the Abel Tasman track we called to ask if we needed a booking on the coach to return to Nelson from Marahau, and were assured that it would be fine to wait for the bus and choose which time suited us. We got back from 5 days in the bush and our second exposure to human beings was... More

Very helpful staff. Easy booking. On time. I would go with them again. It made it easy for me to get to my destination. Well priced. I couldn't fault the service

A lovely lady came to pick us up in front of our hostel to drop us off at the boat that brought us to to a part of the Abel Tasman track. Perfect service and certainly for that price!
