A great experience!

We had a great trip over to Akaroa with Lee! He was incredibly informative about the history of the land & made sure to point out anything of interest. Would recommend this trip to anyone, it’s a must do if you’re visiting Christchurch!

Informative but cramped

Great ride, no issues except it was really cramped. Fellow riders had their bags occupying seats next to them so i had to sit at the back with 3 other big adults not very comfortable.
