We did this tour from a cruise ship and embarked the old (but reconditioned) London bus from the end of the tender jetty at Akaroa NZ. The driver took us around the bays and up the mountains to the Hilltop Hotel where we stopped for a coffee break and photo opportunities. The view of the extinct crater was superb. The... More

The driver and 'co-host' were a good way of presenting this area to us - you certainly get the feel that kiwis love their country and know a lot about it. When we stopped at the Hilltop the driver offered to take pictures of those who wished to be immortalized in front of his DBLDKA. His driving was smooth and... More

Banks peninsula is a special part of New Zealand. Often overlooked as it is a side journey from the main tourist routes, it is a gem. Formed by two volcanoes it is surrounded by numerous bays and a fascinating European and Maori history. Wonderful scenery, great accommodation, enticing cafes, adventurous pursuits

This is a lovely drive around the coast with some fantastic spots to stop and take great photos, the colour of the water in the bays in a clear day are beautiful.

This tour was splendid. The Gods ordained a perfect sun- draped morning for the tour around the many small bays and indented coastline. This is the magnificent Banks Peninsula. Ensconced on the southern side,in a harbor created when an extinct volcano collapsed into the sea,nestles the village of Akaroa. The approach from the water is hypnotizing. The whole trip was...
