Great service

I believe Red Travel is the oldest shuttle bus service, which I think is good to support. Our driver was Tarns, she was great! Super friendly from the get go and punctual for pick up in Christchurch and collection in Akaroa, and always checked to see how the temperature of the bus was for us.
