The trip started off on the wrong foot. The guide was 45 minutes late. There was confusion about the meeting location. The tour itself was nice and we did enjoy what we saw. Unfortunately, when someone asked the guide a question, he didn’t hear the person. We were seated right behind him, on the bus, and he didn’t hear my husband ask questions. Then when it was time to end the tour, the guide thought we were on an all day tour. We told him that the tour was 3 1/2 hours and he needed to take us back to the ship. After much discussion, he left most of the visitors off and told them he’d be back, and took four of us back to our ships. All in all, the Guide was not organized and there was a lot of confusion. I will have second thoughts about referring this excursion to anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review, although we would appreciate some accuracy. As on all excursions detailed meeting instructions are sent to the customers with pick up times and locations. On the day of travel there were two cruise ships in Lyttelton, both in restricted areas of the port. From one cruise ship passengers could make their way to the information centre from the other they could not, so on the day we had two pick up locations: one ship side and the other from outside the Lyttelton information centre. Due to some late arrivals ship side the driver was 20 minutes late in collecting the passengers from the information centre, the excursion was extended to make up for this initial delay. At the end of the excursion, most passengers prefer the option of spending some free time in Christchurch city and catching one of the free shuttles back to port, however, we do offer return transfers to port for those that require them. In a coach it is difficult for a driver to answer questions when driving and providing commentary.
