  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I have been to Christchurch so many times, but this tour revealed gems I have never experienced before. Andrew was a great tour guide, and if you have never been in a tesla before it was great fun too. He had the extra plus of recommending great restaurants and shopping etc.

    This was a fantastic tour with loads to see. Andrew our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. Get him to show you the murals in the city that come to life. I highly recommend this tour.

    A big group (28) but this was ok as Demi managed it well and ensured everyone could hear her at every stop. A great way to get your bearings of Christchurch whilst being informed about the city and its history- especially the earthquake.

    I was gifted this helicopter flight for Christmas... The flight was 45 minutes long so perfect for a first timer like me... Not too long and not too short. We took off over the Christchurch Airport and across the city towards the Port Hills.. Landed next to Mt Herbert where we were able to exit the helicopter and get some photos. One word.. AMAZING! Have included just one of the many photos I took on this flight... I was made to feel very welcome and safe thank you to the amazing staff at Christchurch Helicopters. Fantastic gift idea, am so happy I got the chance to do this...

    The Mount Cook daily tour with Travel Solution was fantastic. We stopped at the rest area properly so that the 12-hour tour was not boring at all. The kind explanation of the guide was made everywhere, which was an opportunity to understand New Zealand. The car was comfortable enough. Travel Solution is recommended.

    Dermot was highly professional and knowledgable. He was safety-conscious, and navigated the mountainous roads and one-lane tracks with ease. His vehicle was spacious, clean and comfortable. He knew the best places to eat, rest, take walks and snap good photographs. E.g. we stopped at Castle Hill, which looked exactly like a Lord of the Rings scene, although it was not the actual set. While he was a good conversationist as he drove, he also let us take naps when we needed it. He was accommodating towards our requests to tweak the itinerary, including last minute requests, like jet boating on the Waimakariri River. As a result we enjoyed our day trip to the Pass!

    The most spectacular and enjoyable Walk/Hike round the beautiful Crater rim.
    Hosted by Nicole who was incredibly professional, kind and considerate as well as being a font of knowledge about local history, the Geographic rock formations and local wild life.
    Starting with a lovely coffee and brief description of the walk , we did a long hike in very manageable stretches at our own pace with a brief snack break and lovely picnic lunch , prepared and supplied by the company. The provision of walking poles and complimentary Drinks flask were most welcome and appreciated.
    Couldn’t praise highly enough.

    The first time trying to fly yourself and how it feels.

    I would definitely do it again.

    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.

    A great experience, professional team, adjusted schedule due to weather and Easter concerns and we had a great time. Knowledgeable pilot and all worked smoothly! Probably better in winter or start of summer with snow on mountains but still very good and family enjoyed their first trip in helicopter!

    Dermot Hall took us on a day tour around the city of Christchurch and Akaroa. Dermot was very knowledgable about the area and gave us terrific insight on the Christchurch earthquakes of 2011. This tour was one of the best highlights of our experience on the Carnival Spirit. The tour was well priced, and provided us a wonderful experience.

    Dave Sandford was an AMAZING guide. He gave us a great overview of Christchurch soon after we landed then spent 2 days with us. Has a lot of information, a great personality, and knows how to "read" his audience and tailor his focus accordingly.

    Had a fantastic time - kids are still raving about it. Also found it a lot easier than I imagined as I'm a bit of a scared flyer. No worries at all.
