The full day tour was relaxing except (of course) when we were on the jet ski. Good company and wonderful sights. Most importantly, Mark, our driver cum guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and competent.

We got started on our tour with Scott and a small group of 6 of us - needless to say it was enjoyable and we were fortunate enough to see the Kea birds near Arthur's Pass. You learn a lot through the guides and in our short trip we've learned so much about the local culture

I'm glad you had such an awesome time by learning a lot about the local culture and seeing some Kea's on your trip, which are always a welcome sight to see.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review and I am pleased you had a great tour, with both the train and sightseeing with Graham. I agree the jet boating is not to be missed. I am sorry that you found the vehicle, you travelled on ( a 17 seater ) a bit cramped. On the day of travel we had three vehicles seperate vehicles operating this tour and I am sure that had you mentioned your discomfort to the driver on the day he would have been able to move you to one of the other vehicles. In addition we are continually updating our fleet to ensure that all of our great tours are also comfortable.
