Thoroughly enjoyed the day. We could have spent a little more time at each location, particularly in the Hokitika Gorge. Sitting at the rear of the vehicle meant there were times we could not hear the commentary but overall well recommended. Driver shared good local knowledge which made the day interesting.

The stops made during the tour were scenic and enjoyable, even on an overcast and at times rainy day. The guide cum driver, Trevor, was an elderly gentleman who dropped us at various places of interest and let us explored them on our own. We bought a tour package with lunch included at the Monteith Brewery. However, we found the place closed when we arrived for our meal. The guide was also caught by surprised. It seemed that the tour company was not informed of the closure. We were not given an alternative place for lunch and had to pay again for our own lunch. Vouchers for meals at the brewery were issued to us instead, to return to the brewery on another day, with no guarantee as to when the restaurant would be opened. I felt this portion of the tour was a huge let down and had affected the overall experience.
