Went along for the scenery but the Lord of the Rings videos and props added to the fun. Scenery was fascinating, reminiscent of Alaska on a smaller scale. Phil our guide was cheerful, informative and easygoing. I felt this was very good value.

Hassle Free picked us up from our hotel, in a comfortable minibus and drove us up to Kaikoura via the inland road, as the land slips had the coastal road closed. This gave us the opportunity to hear about the local farming, agriculture, culture and history from our friendly and knowledgeable guide, Rob. On arrival to the Whale Watching centre,... More

One of the best trip I have done in south island. The credit goes to friendly hassle-free staff Rob. Though we cancelled our jetboat due to rain, Rob ensured we have a very good farm tour in that time. Highly Recommended!

Wow, what a wonderful day - up to Lake Heron, along the Lake Stream and down the Rakaia River with Mark. Fantastic commentary, excellent driving; local experience and knowledge was excellent. Excellent tour - highly recommend. Want to come and do another tour with these guys next time we are in South New Zealand. Cheryl & Darrell Walsh, Tasmania

The tour vehicle was over half an hour late, which was okay because the trip was worth it (and also the traffic in Christchurch seems unpredictable with all of the construction). The vehicle is a really cool 4WD vehicle and some of the roads are very rough or go through water (which was kind of awesome) and they drive you... More
