Everything was superbly well organized, from our pick up at our hotel to our drop off. Our guide Gaike (pronounced "Hiker") was AWESOME. He was extremely kind and caring and his knowledge and commentaries about the tour and everything were just interesting and informative. The sheep station 4wheel drive was awesome, lunch at Drovers cafe was divine, the jet boat was my best, the tranzalpine train ride was awesome. He took us to great photo spots. We hope to come back again to Christchurch and do the LotR tour with him!!!

This tour includes the scenic tour from Christchurch, jet-boating, 4-wheel-driving and lunch, but does not include the trip to Arthurs Pass or the TranzAlpine train ride. After lunch you will be transferred back to your Christchurch accommodation.

We had a fantastic trip on the Alpine Safari, our guide was awesome, he took us to secret spots that we had never been to before (and we are locals!). What made the trip even more spectacular was the snowy mountains. We traveled to Mt Torlesse Station which was incredible, it is amazing such a beautiful place is so close to the city.
The jet boat was amazing and guide Paul fantastic, the gorge was beautiful, and jet boat exhilarating we loved the 360 spins.
The cafe we went to for lunch was great, service and food were both delicious - Great for GF people too as they were very accommodating.
The train ride was just as beautiful as the rest of the day, made even more magical with all the snow around.
Overall a great tour and worth every penny, you get to see and do so much in one day!
