    Beautiful day trip with great views.
    There were a few stops along the way that made the trip even more special. You have plenty of time on your lunch break to check out the visitors center. It’s pretty cool and worth the stop.

    This day trip along with one to Lake Tekapo and Mt.Cook organized by NZSI were the highlights of our trip to the South Island. Mr. Anuj.K was an excellent tour guide and driver. He was very thoughtful, kind and considerate. He also clicked some great photographs of us. The hikes were refreshing and the look-out points were breathtaking. In general, the itinerary was concise and was followed to the T! We will definitely consider NZSI for future trips to the South Island.

    What an awesome tour with Giles. Giles picked us up from our hotel. He was so informative and the years of experience came through. We felt very comfortable with him even though it was just the two of us. Great choice for the wine tastings and we managed to buy a dozen along the way. I am a real fan of Greystone and order their wines regularly so it was good to actually be in the vineyard and know where the wine comes from. Highly recommend.

    We have been meaning to do this for years and we finally got around to it! We had a wonderful experience from the minute we stepped on the tram. Accomodating and friendly service. The food was to die for, cooked to perfection and really couldn’t fault it at all. My husband did the wine pairing with it and loved it, great value for money. Would absolutely do this again and recommend to friends.

    Seeing the Hectors dolphins was the highlight of the trip but we enjoyed the entire trip. The van guide was knowledgeable and the lunch was great.
    The boat trip was great and the captain's commentary was brilliant

    I should start by being clear, this trip was the second we experienced with NZSI this week. The first was a day trip to Arthurs Pass taking the optional train ride out and using their transport to return. In both case we were picked up and dropped off at our accommodation.

    First of all I should mention our guide/driver Anuj. He was very pleasant, mannerly, considerate, punctual and professional. The vehicles used were both modern, comfortable and well maintained. When we were picked up we were provided with a face mask, hand sanitizer, wet wipes and some candies.

    I could really write a great deal of both experiences but I really want to keep your attention. Anuj kept us occupied with his incredible knowledge of the towns and sights and stopped regularly for photo stops and the occasional breaks for coffees, lunches and shopping. There was never any pressure to hurry.

    I would definitely recommend this company and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

    Such a relaxing way to travel and great to just sit back and watch the views go by. So much better than driving over. The cafe car provides good sustenance and a good range. There were longish ques each time I visited, both ways, but good opportunity to chat with your fellow passengers. The audio commentary provided was very interesting. Recommend staying in Greymouth overnight (or longer) rather than doing the same day return trip. Recommend inquiring via Great Journeys about packages as we did.

    Well worth doing and staying over with a trip back the next day.
    The train is comfortable with big windows and comfortable seating.
    The departure terminal is modern and a bit out from central Christchurch with small parking area.
    Food and beverages available on board or byo food. Great scenery along the journey that you don’t see on the roads. Travel through farms with open vistas of rivers and steams and of course mountains. So quintessential New Zealand and not to be missed.

    Fantastic 3 hour trek with beautiful horses that were very well behaved. We knew we were in good hands thanks to the expert guidance from Chris. Definitely worth the the drive out to Rubicon Valley.

    I purchased the Christhurch Pass in advance of our visit to Christchurch and found that it was great value. First you need to pick up all of your tickets ffrom the main office and then is up to you on which one you see first. It covers the Avon Punt, Botanical Gardens catepillar, hop on hop off city tram and the gondola which includes the return shuttle.
