I used the Akaroa French Connection daily shuttle several times in December while section-walking the Little River Trail. Each time was excellent - comfortable bus, friendly and professional drivers. I couldn't ask for better.

John was an excellent driver and gave a good commentary. Helpful company as we were able to pick up bus at Riccarton depot which was close to our accommodation. Akaroa is a quaint village, easy to spend a few hours there, even if you don’t do an excursion. Annette
