Anujk was our driver/tour guide. He treated us very warmly the moment we met him at our apartment’s carpark. Throughout the entire trip, he was very knowledgeable in the history, geography and current rvents around Chch and knows all about the surrounding sceneries and mountains. He was very considerate of all of us in the tour making sure we are well taken cared of and felt secured. The views and experience was amazing! The day was well worth it! We even forgot our shopping bag from the car and Anujk kindly brought it back to our apartment, very gracious and kind indeed! Thank you!
The tour was excellent nice drive out to Akora and our driver gave good commentary stopped at little river for a look around and a coffee, only disappointment was the harbour cruise was cancelled due to weather conditions so cannot blame tour company for that, instead he took us to the Giants house and a drive off the beaten track to view the fantastic harbour from high ground.
Picked us up in a comfy van. Very knowledgeable guide with amazing time management. Shout out to Grahams! Get to see some dolphins and seals and truly enjoyed the lunch given. Ordered blue cods and salmons and breads for starters. Perfect weather. Managed to walk around after lunch. All in all, 10/10. Really worth it!!
The lake Pukaki is absolutely stunning and the short hike to watch the Glacier is nice. Refreshments are all stuffs I like haha~ Our guide Anujk is patient and friendly, he offered us some good recommendations about our trips in CHC. The car is comfy as well, this is important as it's a long drive from CHC to Mt Cook.
Generally, the tour was good, our local guide is a helpful and enthusiastic guy. We love him. Send him a big appreciation from Thuy and James. There were 2 things that we feel pity abt tour: - Covid stopped our buffet lunch - Duration for hiking was unnecessary long ( should be 45min-1h)
