    The smell is amazing! A beautiful peaceful place, with delicious coffee available. We have been coming here for 3 years in a row now, to pick lavender and blueberries. Quiet areas to sit & enjoy the scenery, easy walking & a little shop full of lavender goodies. There is also edible lavender!

    With terraces sweeping down to the river, this open space has memorials to Maori culture, seating, and mural art. It is a quiet place, close to food shops and the main road.

    We visited the park after a gap of some years and were blown away with what had been achieved! There was such an obvious knowledge of plants their positioning, variety and propagation. The planning, present and future ie the planting of pines on the road to the quarry,30 years ago, now felled and the profits used to plant Asian trees and shrubs propagation on site, to plant on a difficult steep gully for the future. The sculptures provided interest of different kinds, some thoughtful, some very cleverly made and some provocative. We loved it and wish the owners all the very best for what they had achieved.

    We had a group of 8 that toured New Zealand’s south island with Jim (of Jim Archer Tours) for 10 days in December 2019, and we highly recommend him! Jim was knowledgeable and flexible, and we felt well taken care of from our first contact through our last day of travel. The overall cost was reasonable and much less than another tour we were considering.

    During planning, we told him some of the places we wanted to see, and he put together an agenda with those and more. We later changed some details, and he happily accommodated us. Jim took care of all lodging and transportation, and even tickets for activities we needed to purchase in advance, making everything worry free. A week before we arrived, a mudslide took out the road to Franz Joseph, so he re-routed us to stay at Lake Tekapo (a gorgeous lake). If traveling on our own, we would not have known until we got to the road closure!

    We had 10 wonderful scenic days traveling the south island. The van was comfortable, the sites were amazing, and Jim was friendly and flexible throughout. By the time we got come, we were already talking about someday returning to see the north island – with Jim as our tour guide.

    Neither my partner or I drive, so when we decided we just had to go to Hobbiton as part of our New Zealand trip in November 2019, we were presented with a bit of a problem.

    If we had just been going for the day, I'm sure we'd have managed something, but we had our hearts set on doing the Evening Banquet where you get to feast like Hobbits!

    I cannot tell you how many websites we trawled through trying to find a way to do this to no avail. When I stumbled across Carrington Tours, I thought they might have been too good to be true! Not only did they book everything for us with Hobbiton, but we were presented with an itinerary of journey times and information on what to expect both on the way to and during the touritself. And our driver John, even picked us up (and dropped us off) directly from our accommodation in Hamilton, which was exactly what we needed.

    John was an amazing guide who took us on a tikki tour around the New Zealand countryside on the way to Matamata and we got to see some amazing locations we would otherwise have missed. He was great to chat to, kept us entertained and was an all-round delight to have as a guide.

    Thank you so much, Carrington Tours & Transfers! We will definitely look you up again on our next trip over.

    We did the West Coast weekend (because every good weekend runs from Thursday night to Sunday arvo) as a group of 6 and loved every minute of it. Beautiful beachside accommodation, good walking - a mix of farm ambling, real tramping, and bush paths - and great food. Kylie and the team are all wonderful people and they really care about making sure that you have a great time.

    A fabulous was to watch a movie. Seated in posh comfort. Staff are very friendly and things ran on time. The Theater was nice and cool, but not too cold. Great place to go to get out of the summer heat.

    First of all , the two lovely people (woman/they/them) were fantastic . Made our experience awesome .
    Thank you for popping in the surprise for my friend birthday !! We just laughed and really enjoyed our time . Even though we’re very much introverts and very bad social anxiety, the whole experience made it fun and enjoyable!! Will definitely returning back in the future.
