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 took the bus 28 to the Gondola Station Watch out, the bus doesn‘t service that station before the Gondola opening hours. Take the stop before, if you miss it you‘ll end up in the tunnel to Lyttleton.
    I walked up the bridle path, but there are actually two paths. The other one follows a pipeline and is really steep.
    Up on the hill I went to the gondola station and had a coffee. Very touristy though.
    Afterwards I ascended towards Lyttleton taking the bridle path.
    From there I took again bus 28 back to Christchurch. All in all it took me around 3hrs.

    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 mom and I did the three hour tour with Chris. It could not have been better!! Chis was such a delight, he was so much fun and the tour had some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. If you are interested in taking a tour and reading this review, you absolutely must!!! You can't miss it, and we will definitely be back with the whole family.

    Love Uprising! Great set up. Lots of different levels to cater for a range of abilities. New climbs always mean there's a new challenge.

    Highly reccomend coming here and trying all the activities they have on offer. Its only about an hour's drive from Christchurch. I went with a few friends for the Mini Olympics. Neil and Sandra were very friendly and were great instructors, going through all the safety instructions and coaching us based on our level of experience. We did archery, knife throwing and clay bird shooting all surrounded by amazing views. We had heaps of fun at all the activities we did, and they made sure we left feeling accomplished. We finished off with lunch at Fables restaurant at the clubhouse. I will definitely be returning to try the other activities we didn't do today and hopefully get to try axe throwing.

    We did two escape rooms at CodeBreakers, and enjoyed them so much that we booked a third room for the next day. The rooms were really well-designed with a mix of sequential and non-sequential puzzles, and they were challenging but solvable. The staff were all very friendly.

    Had a great time doing this zipline in Christchurch's Port Hills Adventure Park. Our guides were super (Jarred and Jake). They were very safety conscious making sure we knew exactly what to do but at the same time gave us confidence and lightened the mood for those like me who were a bit scared at the first zipline start off. By the third one I was hooked. I would definitely recommend this activity if you enjoy doing something a bit different. Great views and adrenaline rush! Thanks to the wonderful guides again.

    Kim and her team were amazingly kind, helpful and nice. Their excellent motorcycles made our trip, the most memorable experience.
    A team of 6 Ecuadorean friends had a blast and highly enjoyed the 10 days motorcycle trip around the South Island. What a beautiful country you have.
    Muchas gracias Kim and team

    We had the best time with Adventure Trail Rides, the morning was spectacular with great views everywhere, Garry was very helpful with guidance on the bikes, tracks and sharing his knowledge on the region's landscape. Really glad we had this opportunity, definitely recommend to anyone looking for some adventure around Christchurch. We didn't have any previous experience with quad bikes, but the instructions were very clear and we felt safe and adventurous all the way through.

    The West Coast Wilderness Cycle Trail trip with Adventure South was excellent - a great group of people, two awesome guides, fantastic scenery, good cycling and additional extras, such as dinner with locals. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would certainly use Adventure South again.
