My wife and I enjoyed it our Arthur's Pass tour though the weather was iffy. Craig did a great job describing everything along the way. The train ride was very good. The jet boat ride was a lot of fun. Craig provided a very healthy lunch along the river. Blue skies would have helped but that can't be helped.

Craig took us on a tour of Christchurch where we were able to see both the heart-breaking devastation which the city suffered through the earthquakes, but also some wonderful beauty spots and glorious scenery which showed us that this city still has so much to offer. We also enjoyed a home stay with him and his partner Keiko when we... More
