Anujk was our driver/tour guide. He treated us very warmly the moment we met him at our apartment’s carpark. Throughout the entire trip, he was very knowledgeable in the history, geography and current rvents around Chch and knows all about the surrounding sceneries and mountains. He was very considerate of all of us in the tour making sure we are well taken cared of and felt secured. The views and experience was amazing! The day was well worth it! We even forgot our shopping bag from the car and Anujk kindly brought it back to our apartment, very gracious and kind indeed! Thank you!
I enjoyed all three but my favorite experience was Punting on the Avon - we had a lovely person - called Chris I think - he chatted to us all the way there and back about the Avon and telling us details about the ducks and the surroundings that were all around us - excellent ! We went on 14th Aug - 1pm I think I went with my grown-up daughter - in her thirties but this selection is not available in 'Who did you go with..... :( - so I chose 'by myself'
The lake Pukaki is absolutely stunning and the short hike to watch the Glacier is nice. Refreshments are all stuffs I like haha~ Our guide Anujk is patient and friendly, he offered us some good recommendations about our trips in CHC. The car is comfy as well, this is important as it's a long drive from CHC to Mt Cook.
Generally, the tour was good, our local guide is a helpful and enthusiastic guy. We love him. Send him a big appreciation from Thuy and James. There were 2 things that we feel pity abt tour: - Covid stopped our buffet lunch - Duration for hiking was unnecessary long ( should be 45min-1h)
long day on the road but worth the travel with fantastic views and scenery. Really was a great day out. Got really nice snacks from the driver / tour operator so we would not get too hungry. And the short hike after lunch was amazing. A really great family outing.
