What people are saying about Canterbury

A wonderful day tour - worthy of Tolkein fans, and the agnostic!

Why just view Ian Brodie's fine book (2004, 2011) on the filming locations of LOR - when you can immerse yourself in a wonderful full day tour from Christchurch? Mark was a very knowledgeable guide, providing not only photos and props but also a great wealth of information on New Zealand and its physical, biological, and botanical history - and importantly its social and cultural history. The weather was great (and not windy, quite unusual apparently) and we enjoyed our 14 seater 6 wheel drive vehicle to Mt Potts station , and subsequently our 200m walk to the peak of Mt Sunday - home to King Theoden's (golden) hall. (Yes, apparently gold leaf was used in crafting the temporary set). Attempts were made by my fellow travellers to wield The Sword, but I contented myself with carrying Sting back from the summit to our vehicle parked at the base. It did not glow blue - to my relief. Helm's Deep was identified, across the plain/'river'; and the snow retreating from the mountain caps. Yes!

A bit pricey but a good night out, once the ticketing issues sorted.

The on line booking was flawed as I have an apostrophe ' in my surname that the web page didn't accept. I tried to make the booking on my iPhone but it appeared to not go through. I then made another booking direct to the tram company and then discovered I had been charged twice, although I didn't receive any confirmation email from GYG. I then had to get the tram company to sort it out, which they did in the end but was a hassle. I then had issues with the mobile ticket. Had to load the app then it wanted me to sign up then it wouldn't accept the access codes emailed to me. So ended up having to go back to the car to get the paper copy, which luckily I had printed out.

A wonderful way to spend a summer evening.

It was our first day in Christchurch and can think of no better way to enjoy our first evening. It was a wonderful meal with excellent wines. The tour round the city gave us lots of ideas as to what to see and do during our time there. Thoroughly recommend doing this.

Enjoyed as we are clearly briefed on the adventure of the cruise !

We also spotted many hectors dolphins from this cruise besides being informed of the places we came across. Thank you to the guide who has the in depth knowledge of the cruise! He really make our journey interesting!

Scenic and relaxing sailing cruise of the bay

Delightful sailing cruise with a knowledgeable and friendly captain, got to see dolphins, penguins and cormorans and learn about the aquatic life of the bay. Highly recommend.
