Jackson, our Tour Guide, picked us up from our hotel and off we went. He gave us the history of Christchurch and how the City Center was being rebuilt after the earthquake. He also explained the different sights along the way including a giant salmon statue and the conservation efforts to protect native New Zealand plants. Once we got to... More

We did the Full-day Alpine Safari day trip that included a visit to a 10,000 Hectare working ranch, a jet boat ride on the Waimakariri river, great lunch at a sheep ranch and a brief hike to a waterfall and drive to Arthur's Pass. Unfortunately fires had taken out the rail line so we weren't able to do the rail... More

To be honest, we came to Christchurch primarily to see Edoras/Rohan from LOTR. And this was the perfect tour! Maria was an informative and friendly driver. We got to watch LOTR vignettes on the way to Edoras. Once there, we took in all the amazing scenery before hiking up (it's tougher than it looks!). We had ample time at the... More

We visited a sheep station, took a jet boat ride (which I thought I would hate but absolutely loved) and then the Transalpine Rail Road for about 2 hours instead of 4. The jet boat guide was informative and also executed 360 degree turns with aplomb. We saw the most scenic part of the railroad trip. Two hours on the... More

I took this 4x4 safari with HassleFree tours in conjunction with an AlpineJet boat ride up the Waimakariri River . It was organized by our Cruise Ship, the Regent Seven Seas Navigator. Although it's a long drive from the port in Akaroa, it was worth the ride through New Zealand farm country. It was extremely well-organized, and appeared to be... More

I really enjoyed today's tour. Maria (our driver and guide) was very friendly and warm from the moment I stepped on the bus outside my hostel (yes they do pick ups in Christchurch).

This Tour was the highlight of an all too brief stay in Christchurch. We could not have ordered a better day that while brisk was sunny and beautiful.
