What a fun and relaxing way to spend some time in Christchurch. Very pretty location and easily done if you have come from your cruise ship docked at Akaroa on the shuttle bus. Informative and passionate staff make for a memorable experience.

What a delightful ride, and fine young man who gave our group a lovely afternoon ride on the Avon. Matt provided lots of fun stories about NZ, and specially Christchurch. Fully recommended.

This was a surprisingly good experience, made all the more wonderful I think because of the lovely team running it. They were friendly, helpful, cheerful and genuinely seemed happy to be a work. Thank you team. The boat ride itself was an exercise in mindfulness as we cruised quietly through the gardens, blanket over our laps and enjoyed the commentary provided by our gondolier. There is plenty of bird live to see as well. Highly recommend this activity, it's very relaxing!
