During our one day stop at Akaroa, as part of our cruise, we took the Cityline/French Connection 2 hour local tour.
This coach tour departed at 11.30am and offered us panoramic views of the Akaroa harbour and local bays as we climbed to the top of the summit road. We stopped at the Barry's Cheese factory and were provided with an explanation on cheese making as well as being able to purchase some of the local cheese. Upon reaching the summit we stopped at the historic Hill Top tavern for photo opportunities and refreshments. It was beautiful day and the views of the Akaroa harbour from the surrounding grounds of the tavern were outstanding.
An informative commentary detailing the historic nature of Akaroa was provided by the coach driver.
This was a very enjoyable tour and if one has a couple of hours to spare during their cruise visit it is an opportunity that should be taken.
