    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Such an awesome birthday experience! Had a group of 40 and they organised everything which made the day super enjoyable. Our driver was awesome and got along with us all. Would highly recommend for any event or a day out.

    It was the first time I was doing something like that and I love it. The environment was very nice, our driver guide Graham was very kind. You are going to learn and tasty different kinds of wines in this experience.

    Era la primera vez que hacía algo así y me encantó. El ambiente fue muy agradable, nuestro guía conductor Graham fue muy amable. Vas a aprender y saborear diferentes tipos de vinos en esta experiencia.

    The trip over was a bit long but certainly beautiful scenery. Would have liked to see more of Christchurch. Just dropped in centre and left to look around.

    A fantastic tour that takes you into some of the best scenery in New Zealand as well as learning about different aspects of lord of rings . Even if you are not a big fan of the movie , I would certainly recommend this experience for the beauty and wilderness .

    This was the most flexible tour I've ever seen. If you can't find exactly what you want, just let them know and I'm confident they will work it out exactly as you want. I appreciated that everyone on the tour seemed to have a different origin, stays, and destination and was amazed they were able to keep everyone straight. I wasn't able to make the connections with other travelers I had hoped for, though, with all the turnover. The scenery was beautiful and I really lucked out with gorgeous weather. My name was misspelled at the train station, a small glitch that was easily overcome since I had copied my email confirmation to the notes in my phone and could access without wifi. The delivery to my hotel was a glitch that was not as easily overcome. The shuttle dropped me off across the street because.... there was too much traffic!?! So I crossed a wet road in the dark, wearing dark clothes, dragging a large suitcase and carrying a heavy shoulder bag in between the heavy traffic. Delivery to my hotel was a wonderful amenity, but I wasn't a big fan of how it was accomplished. Would have given a five rating other than that.

    Our day trip to Mount Cook was filled with informative commentary from Rodney. He not only explained the sights quite well, he also kindly answered questions we had about life in New Zealand. While the top of Mt. Cook was covered in clouds, we still felt the trip was well worth our time because the surrounding area was beautiful and Rodney made the trip special.

    Our ship's schedule wasn't great for doing this tour but our driver made sure we were back in time for the last tender. It made it all a bit rushed but this was in no way the fault of the tour company, the driver handled it all wonderfully. Loved the sightseeing component of this tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Was a bit disappointed in the Antartic Centre, it was quite basic. In hindsight, I would opt for just a sightseeing tour.

    We were a group of 6 senior adults who engaged Leisure Tours for this tour. The tour itself was as advertised. Christchurch was a bit disappointing as they have not really recovered yet from the destruction of 3 years ago and our time at the Gardens was too short. We spent too much time at The Giants House leaving less time at other venues.
    The reason I titled this "Exceptional Customer Service" is because we were on a cruise and when we arrived back onboard the ship I discovered that my pocket camera must have fallen out of my backpack.
    As the ship was pulling out of the pier I called Leisure Tours office. The manager listened my tale, said " that tour guide just pulled in let me check". He came back to tell me they had the camera. He then asked where the ship was going the next day, asked what tour we were doing and arranged for me to pick up my camera the next morning at the Information Center.
    Thank you for the exceptional customer service!

    Our driver did a great job showing us the Banks Peninsula and Christchurch. It's a shame so much damage from the 2011 Earthquake in Christchurch, but still beautiful and good to hear the story and rebuild going on. The Jet Boat ride on the Waimak was a real hoot! loved it. Would recommend!
