Enjoyed two days touring with Hassle Free . The Lord of the Rings and an Alpine Tour . Both tour Guides were very informative and helpful . They gave you time for plenty of photo opportunities . I was a solo traveler but really enjoyed the whole experience . Would recommend to any one who wanted to get out and see some beautiful scenery that you would not have the opportunity travelling on your own.
Excellent well organised, all day tour. Picked up from accommodation on time, followed by lovely drive over Canterbury Plain. Then, as others have said, a four wheel drive over the sheep station and a jet boat ride on the Waimak River. Chris provided an informative commentary throughout and some good stops for photos. The return trip by train from Arthurs Pass rounded the day off perfectly. Would certainly recommend.
