    We climb often at our hometown and had a great time climbing here. Friendly staff, serious about safety and a whole variety of routes for beginner to advanced. Will come again next time we're in Chch.

    My wife and I did the Archery and Air Rifle shooting, both were great fun. We will be back to do the Clay shooting. The activities are well instructed so even beginners like us can get into them and enjoy. Would highly recommend if your at terrace Downs or in the area to give this a go.

    We spent an awesome evening with Chris and his horses Magic, Big Red, Shadow and Memphis. This is by far the best horse trek around. Chris gauges your ability and confidence level then helps you ride to the best of your ability. Awesome way to spend a summers eve 💕

    First time doing a motorcycle tour around the South Island. Everyone I dealt with at South Pacific Motorcycle Tours was great and very helpful. I hired the Sv650 and had a blast on it, no issues. I'll definitely come back for my next trip :)

    We were a group pf three over 60's and we had a great time. Graeme made sure we were capable and comfortable on the units before we set off and he didn't just pressure us in any way. We had a fantastic tour of the city seeing places that we don't believe we could have covered any other way. Graeme gave us a running commentary and a very full tour. Well worth every cent.

    This was a Christchurch City and environs Day Tour including Morning tea and Lunch.
    We were driven in a most comfortable car with Mandy who had excellent knowledge of all things from the great outdoors (she is a keep-fit runner) to the cultural side of life and having lived in Christchurch for some time, knows the before and after story intimately.
    Mandy drove impeccably, stopping whenever there were things of interest to look at or visit. She is a charming, intelligent and amusing lady and the whole experience was perfect.
    We had never done a private tour before and when you are time-poor, this is the way to see and learn the most in a short space of time.
    We hope she may contact us in Auckland if visiting. A great choice Elaine.

    We did the "Into the dark" room as a family and it was amazing! The room was engaging, immersive and challenging without being frustrating. We loved doing it in the dark - it added a fresh spin having to feel our way around the room and yell out what we found to our team. The clues were original and fun and the staff were friendly and flexible. Highly recommended!

    Great family fun, frustrating and rewarding at the same time. Lots of chatting, laughs and celebrations. Proud of ourselves 😁

    Sat in the cafe while our friends went Mountain biking. Great staff in the cafe, good vibes, cool decor, love the floor! Friends had a great time on the tracks. Good variety of levels.

    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.

    Fantastic 2 day ride. Awesome tracks with a selection of tricky climbs and "mini enduro" sections as well as high speed runs. Weather was fabulous which certainly helped. Grenville's guidance was flawless and had an excellent read on the various riders' abilities. Can't fault it.

    Thank you to the fantastic team at GCH. I had been meaning to do a trial flight for a while and finally got around to doing it this year.
    These guys were brilliant. The communications, booking process, and the flight itself... awesome experience, I'm hooked.
