Spent the day with Peter, who is a great guide. We really enjoyed his comments and insights and the walks were really good. We wish there had been some more walking but there were two other couples that seemed to forget they signed up for...More
Peter was our guide for a day trip to Arthur's Pass and it was delightful. We did three small hikes. One all downhill from the top of the pass, a second that was up and down to a beautiful waterfall and a third on the...More
Thanks for your lovely review. We are so pleased you had a great day in Arthurs Pass. The scenery in that part of the world is stunning isn't it. Glad you enjoyed the walks. We will pass your kind words on to Peter.
Great full day with Peter hiking near Arthur's pass. Got to learn a lot about Kiwi's. Peter led us up and down the trails on a wonderful sunny day
Thanks for your review. So pleased to hear you had a great day out with Peter. We will pass your kind comments on to him.
We were staying in Christchurch and did not want to spend the extra money to stay overnight in Greymouth; so we rode the train there and back again on the same day. That is over 8 hours of riding a train, which even though the...More
Hi there, thank you for the review on our page - which I think was meant for the TranzAlpine Train page. It is a shame you didn't find us beforehand as we offer a fabulous tour on the train from Christchurch to Arthurs Pass. We...More

We had a fantastic day! Our guide, George, was absolutely amazing. We booked the tour which had us take the TranzAlpine train to Arthur’s Pass, followed by lunch and some touring in the area before returning back to Christchurch by car. Our train broke down...More

Canterbury is an outstanding tour company. Our guide, Beth, was friendly, exceptionally well informed and very helpful. We took a day tour to Akaroa that included kayaking. Beth picked us up at our hotel and gave us a historic review of Christchurch with several stops...More

We did two one day tours with Canterbury Trails, to Arthur's Pass and Kaikoura (see separate reviews). Both driver/guides were great, especially Peter on the Kaikoura tour who had to improvise when the Whale Watch was unable to go out because of rough seas.More
Thank you for your lovely comments. I am glad you had a great tour and that Peter took good care of you. It is a real shame the weather prevented you getting out to see the whales. Hope you get to come back another time...More
Peter was an amazing tour guide and ensured that everyone on the trip had a great experience. Due to the small size of the group Peter was able to customize the tour by including more hikes, which I really appreciated. I also enjoyed Peter's willingness...More
Thank you for your kind words. So pleased to hear you enjoyed your tour, and that you were able to do some hikes. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world!
Our driver Hugo picked us up right on time at our hotel and transported us to the train station where he retrieved the tickets and on-boarded us giving detailed instructions on where to meet him when the train arrived at Arthur’s Pass. The TransAlpine Train...More
Thank you very much for your fabulous review. Hugo really enjoyed taking care of you and I am glad you managed to see the Devils Punchbowl. It is well worth all those stairs when you get to the end!
