Akaroa Harbour 2-Hour Nature Cruise
- Duration: 2 hours
The dinner was lovely. 4 courses with a choice of the menu for last 3 courses. Staff were great, very friendly. However, on your site, you advise a commentary. We had limited time so thought we would incorporate dinner, tram and commentary. We were very disappointed that no commentary was available. Once explained why, I could understand. But please update your description so that it is correct advertising!! We will book directly with the local information centre in future.
Our day trip to Aoraki was easily the best day of our entire stay in Queenstown. Our guide Kreig’s commentary was informative and interesting and because we were a small group, it seemed more intimate. There were lots of stops on the way there and back for photo ops, the landscape of course was stunning so it was great that we were given multiple opportunities to stop and take it all in.
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.
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)
long day on the road but worth the travel with fantastic views and scenery. Really was a great day out. Got really nice snacks from the driver / tour operator so we would not get too hungry. And the short hike after lunch was amazing. A really great family outing.
