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!!!

4x4 and Jet Boat adventure

Short on time?

The 4x4 and Jet Boat adventure is a half-day version of the Alpine Safari Tour, and is a fantastic option if you are short on time or have already done the TranzAlpine. 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.

Pick up time: 8:00 - 8:30am
2:00 - 2:30pm

Alpine Safari

Enjoyed two days touring with Hassle Free . The Lord of the Rings and an Alpine Tour . Both tour Guides were very informative and helpful . They gave you time for plenty of photo opportunities . I was a solo traveler but really enjoyed the whole experience . Would recommend to any one who wanted to get out and see some beautiful scenery that you would not have the opportunity travelling on your own.
