Very good way to see a significant section of the eastern bays of Banks Peninsula. Personable and professional driver, providing a safe, relaxing and enjoyable experience. The morning tea made by his wife was homely and delicious. This trip could be improved with the driver researching and sharing more local history and knowledge. I think this extensive trip has much potential for further enhancement, if there was a significantly greater input of local information.

Brilliant trip. Safe driver, infomative, got us to alot of out of the way places we wouldn't normally go to. Really pleasant trip and would recommend to anyone unfamiliar with the area to take the time to be shown around by a lovely local.

this is an awesome tour. Jeff has a great knowledge of local history and also had some quirky sights to show and tales to tell. The views are fantastic even on a showery day. The absolute highlight would have to be the morning tea stop at a "mystery location" - yummy home made treats and a delightful little church with a fascinating history. not telling where it is... go on the tour!

We had an awesome tour with the Akaroa Scenic Mail Run, Jeff is the perfect host. We went to all the eastern bays delivering the rural mail and stopping off at local churches and halls and beautiful vistas. We highly recommend this tour, we both loved it as we probably would never have driven around some of the roads we travelled also the stories he were told about the settlers, locals and district were wonderful.
