A Great Way to Explore Blenheim

I had a great day out in the region on this bus. Driver was super nice and kind. Great chats and he dropped me off at my accommodation, saving me a walk in the cold. A really good option for travellers who don't drive too!

Well organised and fun

Fun activity. Compared to booking and calling taxis this is less hassle and probably worth buying if the group is small. If there is a group of 4 people and more taxis might end up being cheaper though.
