Had an amazing time punting. Kids loved it and the punter was excellent. Very informative and interesting.

We all loved the punt on the Avon seeing lots of ducks with babies, eels and rainbow trout. Wow - so relaxing and plenty of room on the boat. Danny was our Punter and we loved his commentary and humour along the way. This is a must-do when visiting Christchurch.

Very pleasant ride. Reese (our "captain") was funny and very charming. The trip was very nice. It was a little disappointing, though (NOT within tour operator's control) if the city would pick up the many cans which litter the bottom of the river

A must do in Christchurch, you may think it doesn’t seem much, but it was the best. A calm relaxing peaceful ride, just sit back and enjoy the ride. Honestly it a great thing to do, make sure you do the package deal that includes your tram ride, a cost saver.

Half hour gentle punt through the botanic gardens. We relaxed supine in flat-bottomed punt while a strapping lad in Edwardian clobber manipulated the long pole
