About
Starting and ending in the “Garden City” of Christchurch, we show you the ultimate highlights of New Zealand’s stunning South Island over 7 action-packed days. From turquoise lakes to towering mountains and glaciers, the South Island’s scenery will blow your mind, and the nation’s adventure capital, Queenstown, has all the adrenalin activities on offer that you could possibly wish for. Activities can be pre-booked or purchased on the road - just let your tour guide know. We can't always guarantee availability when booking on the road, so we suggest pre- booking any activities you especially want to do. As the tour starts early in the morning, you can opt to book accommodation in Christchurch with us the night before the tour – only having to walk downstairs on day 1 makes for a stress-free morning. Accommodation is included on the last night of your tour, but we can also book a few extra nights for you if you would like to extend your stay.

Great tour!

Customer service (by Mary and Marie) were excellent from start to end, be it it terms of enquiring about accomm or refunding or activities.

The guide (Summer) was extremely helpful, often going to extra mile to lend a special touch (arranging for Christmas dinner & decorations).

Highly recommended to read description of details of the various add-ons. E.g., the LoTR 4-wheel drive half-day drove to Glenorchy, which had spectacular views, is an add-on; a coach-cruise-coach to Milford Sound is a full day (about 9-9), etc.

Similarly for accommodations, be aware and adjust your expectations accordingly. However, all the places I stayed in were clean.

If you plan to do weather-dependent activities (e.g., heli-hikes), plan for wet/adverse weather activities is not a bad idea.
