We booked the day tour from Christchurch to Akaroa. It was one of the best tours we have ever experienced and as a former travel agent I have had many of them! The pick-up was at our motel which was very convenient. The van was very comfortable and the guide simply top class. He was able to tell us a lot about Christchurch and the surroundings without talking too much. We were travelling with two elderly people and he was extremely helpful and thoughtful. The day was a great success - despite the rainy weather - and we highly recommend Discovery Travel Day Tours to all.
