Very informative guide. Great recommendations. Great views of lake tekapo, lake pukaki & the southern alps. Highly recommend if you have a day to spare and would like to sit back & relax while your guide takes you to & back from Christchurch.

I would go after lunch we saw the most action (unless you an early morning riser) the lions had just been fed and caused a cool stir with there roaring, most animals were out and about. Some weren't on display at start which was disheartening but we were advised some weren't well
Do this! It was a wonderful introduction to Christchurch city, our guide Graham had a ton of knowledge and it made the day! The scenery from driving to Sumner and over the Port Hills was outstanding.
Great day. Great weather. Sad the ground was so dry and no grass growing. All staff were great. It would be neat to be able to buy a little picture book with details about the park to take away
It was a very nice trip. The 360° view from the Red Rock Cafe was beautiful, when the fog was gone :) the hiking tracks are great and it was the perfect spot for my proposal :)
An amazing place to visit mid morning or lunchtime would be the best time
