    This was the only day of our three-week trip that had a slight rain. However, the views from the train were still gorgeous and our guide provided us with an abundance of options to enjoy the area. This is the location for much of the Lord of the Rings filming. That alone should be an incentive for many. We loved the abundance of waterfalls, lakes and streams. The alpine rain forest was beautiful.

    This tour is fantastic and our guide, Clive, did an excellent job. He was so patient and knowledgable. I loved this tour and am so happy we booked it! Thank you, Cheeky Kea and Clive, for giving us memories that will last a lifetime!

    We were picked up at our hotel at 8:30 a.m. for this full day tour. There were 12 of us in the van. It took us about 90 minutes to make our way to Akaroa. We stopped outside area to enjoy the views from above before descending into the town. We had lunch at Bully Hayes which is in the English area of the town. At 1:30 p.m. we took a two hour cruise on Black Cat Cruises. We stopped at Barry's Bay to sample some cheese before heading back.

    Great day tour from Christchurch. The scenery was lovely (we were very fortunate that we had great weather on the day too). Our driver/tour guide was punctual, nice, and very informative. It is a long day though but there were plenty of snacks on the journey and sufficient restroom stops on the way. I'd definitely recommend this tour for people who aren't familiar with the area and not wanting to drive (there is no cell service at the Tasman Glacier area).

    Beautiful winters day. Saw the dolphins up close. Unreal amount of albatross, and sea life, plus seals, and scenery. The dog Alby, cup of warm tea, and the cookies were a complete bonus. 🍪

    It was a wonderful day out, Hammond really made it extra special with all his knowledge of the location and even surrounding areas, also with his incredible stories. Ross was also really friendly and helpful, driving us around, offering to take photos and chatting away. Would really recommend.

    If you are lucky enough to be in Christchurch you have to have a ride on the Tram! This experience was fantastic for me and my family! The whole trip was made extra special by Elliott and his teammates Joy and Ross! Elliott is the most knowledgeable and joyous character and you will have lots of fun! Thank you for making our trip to Christchurch so memorable!

    It was a great trip, and Pete was a wonderful guide and driver. The views were spectacular and the sheep farm was an interesting stop. Pete had great stories to tell and was very knowledgeable about everything we saw.

    Fantastic views going up and down the gondolas. Nice cafe at top and loved the history train which is complimentary with gondola tickets. I would recommend to go at 10am to get the most out of the day. Staff was friendly too.

    Fabulous wine tour! The driver/guide provided information on the drive to the first winery, Waipara Springs, where we tasted several wines, then had a great lunch. The wine pourer explained the wine processes and answered questions. We also visited George's Road and Torlesse. I was able to discuss the wines we tasted with the owner at George's Road who then offered to let us taste his syrah. Two of us found this one to be the best and we each bought a bottle. Torlesse produces wine in a more French style. All in all, a great day out meeting other wine lovers, and tasting a variety of wines and styles. I would definitely recommend!

    Van was comfortable, and drinks with snacks were appreciated. Lunch was ok but not great. Guide was engaging and personal. Selection of stops was nice. They could have been shorter but I know timing was important. A good day in general. Food on train was pretty sad though.

    Even though we were unable to go whale watching, because of bad weather our guide, Sally took very good care of us. Sally was genuine and shared interesting information. She is a good driver and made the trip enjoyable. We had coffee, shopped, ate lunch, went to a winery, and even stopped along the road to view a seal colony. Even though we couldn’t see the whales, it still was an interesting adventure. Sally made the trip worthwhile.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our one-way standard class journey on the TranzAlpine from Christchurch to Arthur's Pass. Comfortable and clear viewing from our table seats, interesting commentary via complimentary earphones and of course splendid alpine vistas from the open air viewing car. The buffet car gets very busy so duck in early, plus my gourmet pie was not heated through enough. Note the standard viewing car is not completely open, but still accessible enough to capture those stunning landscapes even though the train charges through the southern alps at a fair rate of knots.
