I've made good use of the helpfull nature, and knowledgable qualities, of the people of the iSight in Nelson. I find transport can end up costing you time, but with the help of iSite I got it streamlined, and even got some insight into the places that I was going.

It is worth visiting this visitor centre for many reasons. You might miss some of the best architecture in New Zealand if you don't enquire about where to find it. They have excellent maps of the town and area showing the special places of interest easily missed. For example there are hidden walks along paths through the suburbs where you... More

Was really impressed with the back displays and Doc information. Very informative all round. The staff on the desk on the weekend were friendly and helpful. I brought some souvenirs and chose some brochures from all around New Zealand. Shop was presented very well with their products for sale or display. A lovely big local shop.

The i-site has a lot of good information about the south island in general and some more specific stuff on Nelson and the surrounding area.
