    The best kayaking in town with the most amazing guide. We loved every minute and we will definitely be back in town the next time we visit!

    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.

    It was a very early start for the drive out - but we were rewarded with the most beautiful sunrise over the lake.

    Along the path, Cliff was fabulous yet again and explained the flora and how things grew!

    Give yourself a chance to witness this marvelous sight!

    Very worthwhile tour, we really appreciated that the tour was still on even though only two of us had booked - many companies would have cancelled the tour due to lack of numbers. Guide David was very knowledgeable, pleasant, attentive and helpful - highly recommended!

    My wife and I had a great adventure with Cliff. We explored a waterfall then took the path less trodden through the bush. The weather cleared and we were able to get a good view of the glacier. Then to top it off a cup of tea sitting on the stones of the river bed. Cliff shared with us plenty of stories and interesting information about the area. We highly recommend this tour.

    During our over three week tour of Australia and New Zealand where we experienced a variety of tours operators in both countries, we found that that Canterbury Trails was the absolute best operator in either country. While a huge part of this extremely positive experience has to do with our specific tour guide, Mandy Mitchell, that the company itself provides small personal touches from beginning to end made the experience a joy.

    Unlike other day tour operators we faced throughout our journey, Canterbury Trails pays attention to the details that make a travel experience memorable and positive. For example, when we checked into our hotel, a letter was waiting from the company welcoming us, telling us who our guide was going to be and instructions about appropriate clothing for the tour. Although the time of the tour start was already on our itinerary from our U.S. travel agent, that written Welcome was reassuring as our U.S. agent had gotten several tour times wrong. That Canterbury provided Mandy’s and the owner’s name, and the local contact information the day before the tour was reassuring and considerate.

    We first used Canterbury for the Akaroa day cruise in a small group and then the next day our party of three undertook a separate private tour, by train, and then by SUV through Arthurs Pass and then back east down to Queenstown. In both cases Mandy was our tour guide. She was superb, knowledgeable, energetic, friendly, and helpful throughout. As there was some inclement weather during parts of private tour, Mandy made several key suggestions that allowed us see more of the key sights along the way, making much better use of our time than what our travel agent had outlined.

    We expected to carry home memories of the South Island’s scenery and history. We didn’t expect that we would also bring back such fond ones of our tour guide.

    The best thing I’ve done for myself was to book onto this tour!

    Nothing can compare to what backyard roadies has done for me! Took me totally out of my comfort zone going into the tour solo (as an introvert) with a group of strangers and ending the tour with a new family!

    If you book into this tour, you’re not just paying for the mint views and activities, you’ll get to experience something worth way more than money can buy 🤍

    You won’t regret it 🔥

    This trip was amazing, the scenery was mindblowing, we ran out of superlatives to describe the beauty of the scenery. Our guide, Alex, is a friendly, professional and knowledgeable young man who made our trip so enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble. He took us to places we would have missed had we done this trip by ourselves and the best vantage points for taking photos, The whole team at The Road Trip were friendly, professional and efficient. All the extra things we wanted to do were booked without any fuss and all the hotels we stayed in were exceptional. We would recommend this trip for all ages. Thank you Road Trip for an unforgettable and memorable experience.
