The driver was a very good tour guide. He enriched us with lot of history along the way. He stopped at lot of scenic spots and gave sufficient time for photo shoot. However, his assistant for Japanese speaking tourists was rude. If you dont leave some of your belongings on the seat when you leave the bus for lunch then the assistant would take away your seat and give it to other Japanese tourists who join along the way. Our daughter lost her window seat for no reason this way. That ruined our mood during latter half of the trip. But the assistant had no regrets and did not apologize. It appears that Great Sights is more interested in Japanese customers.
Superbe voyage. Nous avons vu de magnifique paysages, nous avons fait plusieurs arrêts : au lac pukaki et lac tekapo. Le temps de nous restaurer quelques minutes pour poursuivre par l'endroit attendu : le Mont Cook. Magnifique point de vu. Nous avons eu, une 1h30 de pause repas. Ayant pris mon pique-nique, j'ai pu faire une petite randonnée. C'était splendide.
Le chauffeur est très sympathique.
Merci pour cette belle excursion.
I'm so glad I did this! The bus tour is a delightful way to not only see the beautiful countryside between Christchurch and Queenstown, but to learn more about it as well. The bus driver was amazing in what he shared about the land and about New Zealand itself. I actually took notes on what he shared so I would not forget it! The lakes we saw were breathtaking too.
