The tour was well planned. Pick up in the morning and return to the ship was perfect. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area and of Christchurch in particular. She took us to all the important areas and provided good photo opportunities. The only drawback is that Christchurch is a fair distance away and a long drive. The upside is that we got to see a lot of the countryside with on the spot information and anecdotes. The visit to the wildlife reserve was excellent and gave us an opportunity for a decent lunch. Highly recommended. Thank you

I would highly recommend the Willowbank Willdlife Reserve but not the first part of the tour. Our tour driver wasn't good. He was boring. More time should have been spent at the Wildlife Reserve

I was very disappointed in this trip. We started out in Akaroa with a drive to Christchurch. I was under the impression that we would have a guide to give us interesting info about the area. We did not have a guide, we had a driver. Our driver was very nice and polite, but he was a driver and did not provide tour guide services. This should have been advertised as transportation service to the Christchuch area. The drive through the Banks Peninsula was pretty, but that was all it was, a drive with pretty views, no guide service. We arrived at Christchurch where our driver dropped us off for 30 minutes at the Botanical Gardens. These gardens were pretty, but not worth the time it took to get there. We then had a drive through Christchurch which was a huge waste of time and not very interesting. This drive consisted of driving through the business area and looking at the buildings under construction. A waste of time. We then headed to the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. I highly recommend this reserve. Unfortunately because so much time was wasted at the botanical gardens and the drive though the business district, we had minimal time at the wildlife reserve. We had a guide assigned to our group who was excellent but this part of the tour only lasted 45 minutes and he only took us through a small portion of the park. I asked the guide why the tour was so short and he explained that for him to show us the park it would take 2 to 2 1/2 hours. After this short tour we had one hour left before heading back to Akaroa and were given the choice to have lunch at the café or walk around independently to see the rest of the park. I chose to walk around the rest of the park and quickly bought a bite to eat at the café to eat on the bus. I felt extremely rushed. The Wildlife Reserve was very interesting. This tour would have been much better if we had skipped Christchuch and visited the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve and had a guided tour through it.
