Lisa, Ron, Cha and Paul, USA

First, Brian and Paula rescued our day. With the train fire, our plan was in jeopardy. No worries, they scooped us up from our hotel in Christchurch, and we drove in style and comfort. We stopped countless times on the way for scenic vistas–a photographer’s dream–and their knowledge about the history, personalities, plants and trees, and the places (Castle Hill Rocks, Southern Alpes, Waimakariri River) was staggering. Not sure we managed to ask a question that was a stumper. Four well-traveled adults agreed these guides were terrific. Very full day, and returned to hotel at 6:30pm.
