    Done the trip 3 times now and this was the best one yet. What made it so good was the personal sound system with a documentary. For the first time we were able to understand all the details of the scenery and the building of the line and viaducts. The carriage we were in was smooth riding and there was virtually no rail noise. The cafe was adequate and I had some excellent coffee. The food, while somewhat limited, was enjoyable. We also had an icecream. The trip could've been made safer for us as 80-year olds, if we could have had some service at our seat rather than a wobbly walk down the train to the cafe.

    We enjoyed our trip on the gondola. It stopped three times on the way up which was a bit disconcerting. Otherwise the view from the top is good.

    I have been using Snowman shuttle for several years now. Love the fact that I don’t have to trash my car on that awful road. Andre and Alex are excellent drivers and I feel completely safe with them and the owner Will is very approachable. The other benefit is that you get out right in front of the ticket area.

    We took the Lake Tekapo & Mt Cook Day tour with our excellent guide Mr Anuj and we had a great time! The company is world-class, knows how to run the tour, and looks after its customers very well. They come prepared with snacks, drinks, and even a poncho in case it rains if you’re doing any of the suggested glacier tracks. Mr Anuj was very knowledgeable of the area, a good conversationalist, and made the entire trip relaxed and very enjoyable. I would rate this 6 stars if I could - This company and the tour is highly recommended and looking foward to doing another tour with them.

    Dear Andrea, Alan and Carry,
    My father Jose and I had a wonderful tour around the South Island. The Honda Africa Twin worked perfectly (I oiled the chain every two days as Alan suggested) and the tour suggested by Carrie was very good. We only had rain one day in Fox Glacier but did not bother us too much since we were staying there as planned. The roads are in splendid condition and it was a joy riding the bike across the mountains and lakes.
    As I said to Andrea: I am proud of your company, its is reliable and friendly and be sure that I will come back to you in my next visit to NZ (probably to the North Island). Also, the people are friendly and helpful and the places clean and tidy. We had good food too!
    Looking forward to the next holiday in NZ.
    Best wishes,
    Belén

    This company has a 'can do' approach. They collected us from Christchurch to go to Twizel and returned to Christchurch, from Oamaru, in order to fit with the Alps to Ocean ride. The Directer, Matt, made sure everything was done on time or sooner. The journey itself included great conversation from someone who loves and knows a lot about the wider area. If you want to stop for a look at something, or for a bite to eat, that is not a problem. We even got a quick tour around Twizel on arrival to make sure we knew where to eat and get around. For groups or folk with needs that don't fit easily into scheduled transport, this option is a must. In particular, because Adventure Taxis fit with your schedule, for those of us in the North Island, or for those who don't want a night or two in Christchurch before the adventures begin, this options is barely more costly than buses when the accomodation is removed. And remember that buses don't guarantee that your bikes will get there on the day you do! I cannot recommend highly enough how effective and efficient this service was.

    After having the Trans Alpine train cancel on us one way we were advised that Atomic Travel would take us up to Lake Brunner. The train was then cancelled coming back so it was a bit touch and go as to whether the shuttle would take us up. Thank goodness they did and we are very grateful for their service. There were only 4 on the shuttle, the weather was not great but Eric got us there safe and sound.
    We are able to get our trip which we had booked for our 37th wedding anniversary.

    We were in group of 11 people and hired a 12 seater Luxury Mercedes. Very comfort riding, good mileage on fuel as we travel total of 2600kms in 10days South Island Tour.
    The hireage rate was very affordable compared to some other rental companies. Spaces leg room with space for 12 x Large bags in the rear.

    Becky & Flavia and team were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to hire this if you are doing a road trip with large group.

    See you again as we need to complete our West side tour in near future.

    I had the best customized travel trip in my life thanks to Geoff and Libby in Christchurch. They were able to accommodate all of my South Island travel goals and to adjust my plans when needed. They made travel across a large area in a short timeframe easy and enjoyable

    There were two things I really enjoyed. First was the bucket list adventure of a Heli-hike at Mount Cook onto the Tasman Glacier. The second was a personal tour in Christchurch by Geoff which allowed me to see many unique local venues that tourists typically do not visit.
